Let’s take a look back at when LeBron James led the LA Lakers to their 2020 NBA championship in the Orlando Bubble
As most fans know, LeBron James now has 4 rings now. But out of all of them, his most recent one in 2020 with the Lakers has to stand as his most unique.
No fans, artificial crowd noises, and staying in Disney’s hotel throughout it all? Nothing else says ‘once in a lifetime situation’ quite like the Orlando Bubble in the NBA.
Not being able to get out, the Covid testing, and not being able to see their families would be difficult on just about anyone. However, even through it all, the King led his team almost perfectly to an NBA championship.

And now, with the Lakers looking like a genuine threat to win it all once again, we wanted to take a look back at some of the Mic’d up moments, from the man himself.
Let’s get into it.
“We built different man”: A peek into how LeBron James led the LA Lakers to their 17th NBA title
LeBron James is arguably the greatest player in NBA history. And one of the biggest contributors to that, are his capabilities as a leader.
The man has been known to be encouraging when players needed, and yet harsh when he felt it was required. He keeps it straight with everyone, including his co-stars. And, during the Bubble, we got the smallest peek into that. Take a look at the video below.
We won’t lie, every time we watch the ‘it’s our ball’ part, we tend to crack up. However, we can imagine that his passion and especially his line about being built different can inspire fellow teammates to the highest point possible.
With the Lakers looking to make a 2020-like push once again next season, we can’t wait to see some more Mic’d up moments from James. And who knows? Maybe we even get funnier moments than the ball-demanding version of the player.
