Nike Releases Touching Ad Moments After the Los Angeles Lakers Win the 2019-20 NBA Finals
The Los Angeles Lakers are the NBA champions from 2019-2020. And Nike wasted no time posting a touching and compelling ad celebrating the team, the city of LA, and two of their sponsored stars: LeBron James and Anthony Davis .
Nike revealed the video, titled "You Can't Stop LA" minutes after the Lakers sealed Sunday's 106-93 win over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. During the minute-long clip, the narrator repeated the sentences “We won” and “We lost”. The words were allusions to the ups and downs on the pitch, including COVID-19, the ongoing discussions over racial injustice and the deaths of basketball icon Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna.
To emphasize the importance of this championship win in the midst of the turmoil in the world, the narrator concluded the video with the words: "Because we have lost so much, this victory means so much more."
This championship is the fourth in James' career and his first as a member of the Lakers. The legendary baller was also named the MVP of the NBA Finals, making it the fourth time in his career that he received the honor.
For Davis, who played seven seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans before joining the Lakers in the off-season, this was his first championship win.
James hit a game high of 28 points on Sunday, adding 14 rebounds and 10 assists to his stats. Davis scored 19 points and got 15 rebounds in victory.
