LeBron James said Anthony Davis’ buzzer-beater is his favorite
The 2020 postseason was chaotic. This was due to the pandemic and the suspension of the season. The Lakers were on top of the Western Conference rankings when the pandemic hit America. However, months later the teams were asked to resume play.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis were dominating that season. They entered the bubble and proved that they were the best team there. They defeated the entire Western Conference within 5 games and the Heat in 6 games.
The list of teams they beat in their run includes; The Portland Trail Blazers, The Houston Rockets, The Denver Nuggets, and finally The Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.
Anthony Davis was exceptional that postseason. He carried the Lakers during several pivotal stretches. LeBron James recalled game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Anthony Davis hit a clutch 3-pointer to win the game for the Lakers.
LeBron James has had several memorable moments over his career. However, he has had much fewer with the Los Angeles Lakers. They missed the NBA playoffs the first year he was there due to injuries. Won the second year in the bubble. They were then eliminated by the Phoenix Suns in the next postseason. Finally, they missed this postseason entirely.
Therefore, it is no real surprise that LeBron’s favorite moment comes from the year he had success. However, we are sure he is hoping to have a few more before his career comes to an end.
