After losing to the Golden State Warriors at home on opening night, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have a lot to prove in their game tonight against the Phoenix Suns, who became the only team in NBA history to knock the King out of the first round in the playoffs. The purple-and-gold will follow that with another home game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday. The three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Shannon Sharpe, predicts the Lakers’ record after their weekend matchups: “I expect us to be 2-1 and get back on track. LeBron & AD will be themselves, the question is, how do we unlock Russell? But the #1 thing they need to focus on is defense.”
