The Los Angeles Lakers won the 2019-2020 NBA Championship on Sunday night at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and Disney celebrated by lighting Cinderella Castle in the team’s primary colors – purple and gold – immediately following the game.
The specially colored Cinderella Castle commemorated an extraordinary performance by the Los Angeles Lakers and the successful return of the 2019-2020 NBA season through a remarkable collaboration between the NBA and Walt Disney World Cast Members. In July, the NBA resumed its season with 22 teams competing for a spot in the NBA Playoffs. After 3 months and 205 total games at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, the NBA Finals concluded tonight.
