ofc they wont, how could they?
Lebron ball in the western conference w/o 2 allstars isnt exactly a recipe for success.

Fakers fans are in for a big reality check this year.

If you heard Magic and Pelinka's conference, you wouldnt be. Lonzo is watching film with Rondo and Magic. Its for the growth of Lonzo.

Seriously, they don't have a lot of talent, and the players they DO have aren't a great fit skill wise.

Top 6 seeds in the West are already determined pretty much. Lakers will be in a big shootout for 7/8 seeds.

In that case, Lebron is the dumbest superstar there is for joining a bad team, misjudging their talent and now have lost his chance to win, instead of staying in the very weak East and joining a more talented team like the Sixers.

Typical Bran stan tactic to ALWAYS lower expectations for our colluded superteams so that our hero looks fraudulently better than he actually is.

Don't see why they wouldn't.

Barring injury its not like LeBron will drop off a cliff.

Worst case scenario? Dude will be a top 3-5 player with a respectable supporting cast. The Lakers are young and full of potential though. If they live up to the hype, they'll be a dangerous out for anyone.

Just last year our excuse was "Cavs are old and washed up, we need a young hungry and athletic team for Bran! Look at Boston! That's the recipe to win a chip!"

Now that our hero has a young, hungry, and athletic team, we are trying our hardest to switch the agenda with our great revisionist powers.

Unless Lebron falls off a cliff entirely, there's 0 chance this happens. I still think they finsih 7-8th, but I wouldn't be surprised if they finish 3rd either. With Rondo and Bron leading.

Lmao this. People forget that LAST year's youth was able to compete with any team on any given night. So.... add another year of experience + off season for the young guys and LeBron and Rondo and other vets....

Quite the opposite. Mcgee is playing a small but important role. Rondo's experience and playoff work is valuable and the fact that we HAD TYLER ENNIS AS BACKUP PG LAST YEAR says it all. Beasley will get buckets as backup 5, had a decent season in New York.

55+ wins bare minimum

Haters are going to be fuming when Lakers finish a top 4 seed and go to the Conference finals
