One of the most storied franchises in NBA history, currently led by two of the sport’s top players, clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference on Wednesday, and LeBron James quickly boasted about previously being told he wouldn’t succeed.
The 17-year veteran told reporters he was going to “enjoy this one” after his team captured the top seed in the West for the first time since 2010, shouting out his doubters in the process.
“They said I couldn’t do it,” James quipped.
Of course, the Lakers have long been considered a favorite to win the NBA title in 2020 since the season began.
