The Los Angeles Lakers found themselves on the wrong end of a championship trophy in 2020. While they had the trophy in their hands, they never got a chance to take the same around the city as hordes of Laker fans cheered for them. LA worked extremely hard for that title win over the Miami Heat in the bubble, but they really got no time to savor it.
The Lakers came off an incredibly short off-season that year and have struggled since due to roster moves that just haven’t worked out. Most of the 2020 championship team has been split up but the bonds they formed continued. It is a shame that they never got a championship parade and the players know it too.
During the Warriors championship parade, Alex Caruso tweeted about how he felt sick watching their celebrations. Kuzma promptly retweeted that with a quote and reminded Caruso that they never even got a parade after their championship win.
