LeBron James, other sports figures send Clayton Kershaw congrats after Dodgers ace wins World Series

Clayton Kershaw is, finally, a champion.

It took 20 postseason series, 13 years, over 2,500 innings and navigating a pandemic, but the longtime Dodgers ace and one of the greatest pitchers of this generation finally earned his championship ring after the 2020 World Series on Tuesday night following LA’s 3-1 win over the Rays in Game 6.

Forever known for his greatness, Kershaw put together arguably the best postseason of his career this year: a 2.93 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings over five starts makes for a very Kershaw-esque line. By the way, Kershaw also set the MLB record for career postseason Ks with 207.
