Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay officially congratulated the Los Angeles Lakers on winning the 2020 NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.
According to McVay, the Lakers are deserving of their 17th championship.
“I want to congratulate the Lakers. 17th championship. Unbelievable. You look at the good things going on in this city with some of these other sports teams. We’ve seen the Dodgers making another run under Coach [Dave] Roberts’ leadership.
“But to see what these guys have done, I’ve really enjoyed following them throughout the season, but especially in the playoffs. The type of competitor, the leadership that LeBron [James] ends up personifying. Being able to bring [Anthony Davis] in and then seeing some of the things, just the way they played it as a team on both ends of the court and then Coach [Frank] Vogel and Rob Pelinka, really congratulations. Very happy for them,” McVay said about the Lakers.
With the Lakers bringing the Larry O’Brien trophy back to Los Angeles now, the pressure is on the Rams to follow suit with the Vince Lombardi trophy.
At 4-1 to start the 2020 NFL season, McVay and the Rams are about to dive into the most challenging stretch of their schedule now heading into Week 6.
After the San Francisco 49ers, the Rams must face the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers during this stretch.
However, just like James, Davis, and the Lakers, the Rams must push through any adversity and hardships in order to ultimately take home the 2020 Super Bowl.
The Rams have the depth, offensive and defensive firepower capable of taking over the league and making a big statement this season now if they can stay healthy.
With Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and Jared Goff all ready for the next step, the Rams are poised for greatness this season as well.
Just as the Lakers worked incredibly hard for that championship and the Los Angeles Dodgers are currently in the NLCS, the Rams must do that now.
If the Rams can manage to channel their Mamba Mentality, they might be able to bring another championship back to Los Angeles as early as Feb. 7, 2021.
