Original title: The Lakers return to the Finals after 10 years, James takes over and writes the legend of Zijin
In Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, the Lakers defeated the Nuggets 117-107, eliminated their opponents 4-1, and returned to the Finals after 10 years.
Ten years may be just an ordinary number in the eyes of many people, but for those fans who have been following the Lakers and the managers within the Lakers, they are very clear about what the Zijin Army has experienced in these ten years. The turbulence and ups and downs of China; how difficult it is to get to this step all the way.
Sitting on the time machine, returning to the passionate 2010, the Lakers finally defeated the Celtics after a fierce tie-break in the finals and won the championship with perfect revenge. That championship happened to be the fifth in Kobe's career. It was also after that championship that Fei Xia leaped onto the technical stage and opened his arms to cheer and became an eternal classic in NBA history.
But it was also from the moment of winning the championship that Kobe’s career entered a downward path. Although the Lakers did not give up hope of the championship, they launched a big deal in the summer of 2012 in exchange for the then first center Dwight Howard and two MVPs. Winner Steve Nash, formed a new version of F4 with Kobe and Gasol. However, such a big deal, not only did not help the Lakers rebound, but also accelerated the collapse of the Zijin Dynasty.
At the end of the 12-13 regular season, Bryant suffered a nightmarish Achilles tendon rupture, and completely bid farewell to the peak of his career. Also in the same year, the legendary Lakers boss Jerry Buss died. In the next few years, as the flying man recovered from his injuries, as the Lakers fought for power, the top leaders fell into a farce of court battles. The Lakers were forced to start a long reconstruction, but until 2016, when Kobe retired, there was not much rebuilding. .
Later, Jenny Buss gradually gained the upper hand in the struggle and began to take charge of the leadership of the Lakers. Later, the Lakers' management reform and the addition of Kobe's agent Rob Pelinka finally brought new changes to the team.
In 2018, LeBron James joined in heavyweight, rekindling hopes for the Lakers' national revival. Last summer, Brother Nongmei made a lot of calls through a trade, and the Zijin Army finally returned to the track of the championship. But this season, the script is still full of twists and turns. Kobe's unexpected death and the occurrence of the new crown epidemic have put a special mark on the Lakers' season journey.
Today, the Lakers have returned to the Finals, but it does not mean that they can secure the championship. In the East, there is still a strong enough team waiting for them.
If, in the finals, the Lakers' opponent is the Celtics, then this will be another great conversation in the history of Lake Kai. This round of the series will be in perfect contrast with the confrontation ten years ago, and will become another new chapter in the long and brilliant history of the two teams. If the Lakers can win the Celtics championship, then they will tie the latter's record and become the team with the most championships in NBA history.
