James Worthy shared his thoughts on the upcoming seven-game road trip of the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers.

Worthy, a Lakers and NBA legend, considers this road trip the ‘first big test’ for the team this season, given the quality of the opponents they will face.

Among other teams, the Lakers will take on the Philadelphia 76ers, the Boston Celtics, the Atlanta Hawks and the Milwaukee Bucks, with all four of them being contenders in the East.

For his part, James Worthy made a prediction that the Lakers will win five of their next seven road games (5-2).

The Lakers are undefeated on the road so far (7-0) and their first opponent will be the Bucks on Thursday.
