Los Angeles Lakers are on a mission to win the NBA championship this season. The Purple & Gold brought in a second superstar in Anthony Davis next to LeBron James. So far, the plan appears to work well. The Lakers are sitting atop the Western Conference with the second-best record in the league.

In addition, they earned psychologically important victories over the main rivals the Bucks and Clippers prior to the season getting suspended. Sports analyst Chris Broussard is of the opinion that anything but the NBA title would be a failure for the Lakers.

“It is absolutely a failure if the Lakers don’t win the championship. When your best player is in his 17th season there is no guarantee he’s going to stay at this level next year. There is no moral victories. They should be looking championship or bust.”
