After indulging in celebration with his teammates, LeBron made a powerful declaration of the award into the microphone.
"We want to be respected, Rob (Pelinka) wants to be respected. Coach Vogel wants to be respected. Management wants to be respected. The Lakers Nation wants to be respected. And I also want to be respected."
What LeBron refers to is naturally the ridicule and attacks the Lakers have received since he joined, including the inability to make the playoffs, the lack of management, Pelinka is a joke and so on. Even when they have won the first place in the Western Conference, they still miss the regular season MVP, best defensive player, best coach and best manager.
When talking about the mood of winning the FMVP, LeBron said: "It means a lot. It means a lot to win prizes on behalf of this team. I came here to bring this team back to the top and become This part of the glory is really incredible."
"I have never missed a playoff game in my life. The biggest contribution I can make to my teammates is to play." He said.
Lakers coach Vogel also said: "We have withstood the test of difficulty and we can say that we have received a PhD. I am so proud of this team!"
