Anthony Davis would like to close out the NBA Finals series against the Miami Heat wearing the ‘Mamba jerseys’. The Lakers need one more win to clinch the title for the 2019-2020 season.
The Lakers will enter Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Friday night with a chance to bring the 17th championship to Los Angeles and honor the late Kobe Bryant.
Davis wants the Lakers to remain undefeated wearing the Mamba jerseys.
“If we come out and do what we’re supposed to do, then we can remain undefeated,” said Davis, per Lakers Daily’s Ryan Ward. “We just think that for all the things that happened this season, with our team specifically and our organization, that to be able to close it out in the Black Mamba uniforms will just make it all worth it.”
“Obviously his legacy in the NBA & then just w/ the org, period, is something special, & for us to, like I said, close it out in his honor is something that we look forward to.”
The Lakers are 4–0 in their Black Mamba jerseys this postseason, including a win during Game 2 of the Finals. With a win on Friday, the Lakers will win the first NBA championship since 2010.
