As tensions and anxiety loom within the purple and gold fandom, LeBron James only has a definite message to offer that must be translated into actions.
A message and actions that have to be noted upon the Los Angeles Lakers’ current rough journey this season.
Posting on Twitter on Sunday, the superstar forward delivered some words of promise and little encouragement to give the LA supporters plenty of energy.
Off from a Saturday demolition in Denver wherein they were pulverized by the Nuggets, via a 133-96 wire-to-wire victory, the Lakers are in the deep waters of the Western Conference contention, filling the seventh spot with a 21-22 record. With star big man Anthony Davis remaining out, the Lakers are still yet to face the league’s hardest schedule based on the opponents’ winning percentage. Per StatMuse, the 17-time champions haven’t beaten a +.500 team in over a month – an alarming sign for a ball club that has title aspirations.
The hidden plans and tough moves of the Lakers are yet to be unveiled. Three weeks before the Feb. 10 trade deadline, it’ll be interesting to see how this team will squeeze their chances to retool for the upcoming bloodbath towards the mountain top of the NBA.
With LeBron speaking on behalf of the roster, mind-blowing performances are about to come as he is currently averaging 28.9 points, 7.5 boards, and 6.5 assists at age 37.
