LeBron James and Lakers in the NBA Bubble
The Lakers have gotten off to a mixed start in the Bubble, winning against the Clippers but then absolutely blowing cold in the Raptors game. Offensively they were terrible agains the Raptors and will need to address that in the games going forward.
With a playoff spot already sealed, the Lakers will need to make their bench rise to the occasion, especially with Avery Bradley missing.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis will need to rally the team and ensure that they do their part on both ends of the court, as their support staff hasn’t really come up to speed yet.
