Los Angeles – The Los Angeles Lakers earned their 16th NBA championship victory on Thursday, defeating the Boston Celtics 83-79.
Kobe Bryant, who has earned five championship wins with the team, is quoted in an Associated Press (AP) report as stating of the win Thursday night, “This one is by far the sweetest, because it’s them…This was the hardest one by far. I wanted it so bad, and sometimes when you want it so bad, it slips away from you. My guys picked me up.”
