Transcript for Inside look at Lakers-Heat NBA Finals
Sticking with a bit of a sports note, the big deal for the NBA finals to be starting tonight. The clash between the L.A. Lakers and the Miami heat. Looking to cap what is the most unusual season in the history of the league. Taking place inside as you know a bubble in Orlando. Joining us now from the bubble host of ESPN's "The jump," Rachel Nichols. We have to start with Lebron. First two champions in Miami, one in Cleveland. What does it mean for this guy.
