Lakers tie Celtics for most championships as LeBron joins elite company
Los Angeles – After a 106-93 win on Sunday night against the Miami Heat, the Los Angeles Lakers are now tied with the Boston Celtics for the most championships at 17. The next closest two teams are the Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors with six titles each.
Not only do the Lakers join the first-class company, but their best player does so as well. In NBA history, LeBron James joins only Michael Jordan to win at least four Finals MVPs and four regular-season MVPs.
Is LeBron’s case for being the Greatest of All Time vs Michael Jordan’s record better now that James has four championship rings?
