LeBron James made an interesting statement regarding his opponent in the 2020 NBA Finals, the Miami Heat.

James compared facing the Heat to playing against the Golden State Warriors.

“It’s the same as when I was playing against Golden State all those years, you make a mistake, they make you pay. So we have to understand that,” James said, via The Strait Times.

James faced the Warriors in fourth straight NBA Finals (2015-2018) and won only once (2016).

Now, James and the Los Angeles Lakers are one win away from claiming the 2020 NBA championship.

The Lakers lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is on Sunday.
