Imitation Victory: The NBA Championship that Never Was

The internet is known for always getting the best of its targets. Following LeBron James and the Lakers’ victory Saturday, they became the inaugural NBA Cup champions. LBJ was also named the tournament MVP. As expected, social media took the opportunity to roast Bron with memes and jokes. Many found it amusing that James celebrated as if he had won his fifth NBA Finals and MVP. Despite the victory, some argue that the tournament doesn’t hold the same weight as the real NBA Championship. However, congratulations are in order for LeBron and his teammates on their achievement. Who knows, in today’s era, the NBA may start awarding rings for this championship, making it just as prestigious as the NBA Finals.
