Former NBA player Lamar Odom is confident that the Los Angeles Lakers will win the NBA championship this season, despite the fact that they have been struggling so far this season.
Odomo, who won two rings as a Laker, thinks that the combination of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony as a sixth man, is good enough to fight for the title.
Via TMZ Sports:
“I think they’re good enough to win a championship,” Odom tells us. “They’re still my pick to win the championship. I don’t know if that’s Laker pride or me just being a Laker at heart. But they’re still my pick.”
“Anytime you have LeBron James on the court and a healthy Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony as your 6th man, I think they’ll give you a really good shot.”
After 50 regular season games the Lakers have 24 wins and 26 losses which puts them in the 9th place in the Western Conference which is good enough for the play-in tournament.
