Can LeBron James carry the Lakers to a championship run?

King James is becoming a more inspiring figure every year. The four-time MVP leads the Lakers’ quest for their first title triumph since 2010. The team is currently sitting comfortably at the Western Conference and is waiting for the season to resume.

James averaged 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists (current league record) before the season screeched to a halt. With the league starting in just over a month, the 35-year-old would go on exactly where he left off.

The league recently announced sowing for the rest of the regular season. Fans will be pampered on the opening day when the Los Angeles Lakers take on city rivals LA Clippers. Since both teams are refreshed after a reasonable break, you cannot choose a clear favorite in this draw.

The Lakers have a comfortable lead at the top of the table, but the team should deliver when it matters. With the support of Anthony Davis, LeBron would try to win the NBA championship with the Lakers. In addition, winning the title would hit the Lakers from head to toe with longtime rival Boston Celtics at 17 titles each.
