The Los Angeles Lakers won their 17th NBA championship and played tremendous team-oriented basketball in game six against the Miami Heat. They made the necessary changes compared to game five and had a dominant 106-93 win against a team that wouldn't surrender by any means. From the early start of the game, the Lakers took full control and eventually completely outplayed the Heat, who didn't have an answer for the Lakers' swift offense and solid defense.

Players around the league went to their social media accounts to congratulate the Lakers, specifically LeBron James and Anthony Davis, to win the championship after several grueling months in the NBA bubble.
