LeBron James led the Los Angeles Lakers to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010 and is ready for his fourth NBA title.

James posted another triple double (38 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists) and helped the Lakers close out the series against the Denver Nuggets (4-1).

“One step closer to the goal. Job not done,” James said after Game 5 against the Denver Nuggets, via Ben Golliver of the Washington Post.

James will make his 10th appearance in the NBA Finals. The Lakers will face the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics.
