NBA News Updates: LeBron James reminds fans of the promise he made last year
After the LA Lakers failed to make the playoffs last year, LeBron James made a promise to the fans, stating that the slump will not last for long and that they'll soon get back to winning ways.
After fulfilling his promise by winning the NBA Championship in 2020, LeBron spoke to the fans today and expressed his desire to get back to Los Angeles to celebrate with them.
Earlier in the night, LeBron James also shared an emotional moment with his mom, Gloria, and thanked her for everything she'd done for him in the past.
Meanwhile, LA Lakers' Danny Green was in the news for all the wrong reasons in the past 2 days. After a poor show in Game 5, Green redeemed himself in Game 6 as he went on to score three 3-pointers and earned the championship ring.
He has now taken a sly dig at the critics who bashed him after the previous game.
It's interesting to note that Danny Green has now won 3 championships with 3 different teams in the league.

Popular hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg is a well-known Lakers fan for many years. After their impressive win on Sunday night, he didn't hold his emotions back and shared this hysterical rant with fans on social media.
Meanwhile, Quinn Cook, who signed with the LA Lakers last year and was a part of Sunday's championship-winning roster, was involved in a hilarious incident amid the celebrations.
After the game, the LA Lakers team bus forgot to pick Cook up from the arena and left for the hotel without him. He hilariously went on Instagram and texted JR Smith to turn the bus around to pick him up.
The NBA Finals concluded just a few hours ago, and we expect more stories to emerge from the Orlando bubble as the LA Lakers' celebration continues.

After their disappointing defeat against the LA Lakers, Butler penned a heartfelt message to Miami fans on Instagram.
After thanking the organization and the fans for their support throughout the season, he assured his fans that they'll come back stronger next year.
