The Los Angeles Lakers should be better in the 2020-2021 season than they were this year.
The Los Angeles Lakers finished the 2019-2020 regular season with a 52-19 record, good for first place in the challenging Western Conference. The purple and gold then proceeded to stomp their way through the playoffs finishing the NBA’s second season with a 15-6 record.
The Lakers were one of the most dominant playoff teams we’ve seen in a while, but here’s the scary thing for the rest of the NBA: LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and company should be better next season.
Like many organizations throughout the NBA, much of the Lakers roster is up in the air. Who knows which players Rob Pelinka will sign during the offseason and who knows how the athletes the front office brings in will acclimate to life in Hollywood (we could have another Danny Green situation on our hands).
The future is uncertain, but there are reasons to believe the Lakers will have an excellent “summer.” The front office should bring in some notable fresh faces to the squad and some key role players should also improve.
Up next, we’ll discuss three reasons why the Lakers should be better during the 2020-2021 season.
