The Lakers have had an eventful season, considering they started off on the right foot but ended up declining as time went on. The team quickly fell behind as LeBron James missed 18 games with a groin injury, and with the team now in 10th place in the West, it’s time to do something. James spoke about the importance of the team considering they still have several games left.

“Obviously, we would have loved to have success when I was out, but we didn’t, so this is where we [are] right now,” James said according to ESPN. “I’m going to be a little bit different a little bit earlier than I would like to be in previous years.”

When asked about the playoffs, LeBron was clear with his statement.

“Yeah, I mean if I can get to the postseason, whatever team I got, I feel like we’ve got a good chance,” he said.

Hopefully the Lakers can get back on top where they belong, as the franchise is legendary and arguably have the best player in the world in their squad.
