    I don’t think the Lakers are going be as good as people think they are this season. Lebron is getting old and both him and AD could get injured trying to carry the team too much and playing too many minutes. I don’t see Lebron getting another ring as a player IMO the competition is too tough and way younger than him. Clippers will be the LA team to watch.

      The thing is LeBron wont be playing all out defensively, we know this. However, with AD being unstoppable, LeBron wont have to do so much on offense so maybe he can just step it up on defense but a bit more and that could make all the difference in the world as a few stops in a basketball game can be the difference between winning and losing. Point being is I think come All Star break next year, the Lakers will be have one of the better records in the west and will be looking scary.

            Lebron the only player they give context for. He’s also the only player that can rest on defense and not get ridiculed for

              How can someone who doesn't play defense in the regular season be considered the GOAT?

                                Lebron never ever plays D he only likes weak side blocks!

                                          Kuzma can always just shove Lebron again at the perimeter shooter! That's great team defense imho...

                                                LeBron aint LeBlock no more. I think his style of play took a toll in his body and the reason he is not playing D is because he dont want to get hurt. He was so reckless back then.

                                                  LBJ will step up his defense because he's doesn't have to be a one man offensive team... Lets go LA....

                                                          Ion know it look like lebron played center on defense and pg on offense

                                                            Look at the Lakers. Lebron should be able to play defense now! He doesn’t have to be the sole offense.
