The Los Angeles Lakers are back on top. The Lake Show captured their 17th world championship on the back of LeBron James Sunday night (October 11) after a blowout win to defeat the Miami Heat in game 6 by a score of 106-93.
With Hip Hop being filled with Laker faithful, a bunch of artists didn’t waste any time in celebrating L.A.’s first title since the late Kobe Bryant brought home his fifth in 2010.
Diehard Laker fan Snoop Dogg already had some words for the haters at the end of the third quarter, when he took to Instagram to call out Clipper fans, Heat fans and those that bet big cash against him.
“It’s Laker gang, punk! Everybody that owe money, get your bags up, n*gga,” he proclaimed with a headset on. “I need my money, n*gga. Punk, fuck y’all! Laker gang, n*gga. Purple and gold. This for Kobe and Gigi [Bryant].”
James finished with another triple-double (28 points, 14 rebounds & 10 assists) to close out the series and take home his fourth NBA Finals MVP trophy, while Anthony Davis poured in 19 points to finish off the Heat. The Lakers’ 17th championship matches them with the Boston Celtics for the most all-time.
