The Lakers are getting a WWE Title to go along with their 17th Championship.
Triple H wrote on Twitter that he's sending the team a custom WWE Championship belt to commemorate their recent win over the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. The Lakers ended up winning the series 4-2.
Led by the dominant tandem of LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat, 106-93, in Game 6 to clinch the franchise’s 17th NBA Championship. WWE EVP of Talent, Live Events & Creative Triple H sent a custom WWE Championship to the Lakers to celebrate their first title since 2010.

This year, WWE has sent custom titles to champions like the Kansas City Chiefs, the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Seattle Storm.
This isn't the first time Triple H and WWE have done something like this. It's not even the first time they did this this month. Earlier in October, the WNBA's Seattle Storm was sent a special WWE Title after they defeated the Las Vegas Aces to win the WNBA Finals.
Lakers owner Jeanie Buss also is involved in pro wrestling as she is a co-owner of the Women of Wrestling promotion.
