Tiger Fight, September 30 The NBA officially held a finals press conference today. Lakers player Dwight Howard was interviewed by the media.
Speaking of the opportunity to win the championship in the year when Kobe Bryant passed away, Howard said: "If I can win, it will be the best experience in the world. When I was sitting at home, I was in a segregated park hotel room. When I’m sitting or walking in the park, I just want to hold the O’Brien Cup. It makes me cry every time. Since we entered the park, I’ve been thinking every day that this is a great opportunity. We must fully grasp and enjoy this moment. Even after we won the Western Conference, my thoughts were, "Well, this is not our goal. The Western Conference is not our goal. We want to win the championship." This feeling It’s great. I was very emotional that night. We returned to the finals. How hard we have paid on the way, and how strong you must be in the league to go to the present. It’s you who enter the finals and win the championship. One of the hardest things an athlete can accomplish. I am grateful for this opportunity, to be part of this team, and to have the opportunity to compete for the championship."
At nine o'clock tomorrow morning Beijing time, the Lakers and the Heat's first game in the finals will begin.
