Just How Far can LeBron Take the Lakers?

Can lebron lead the lakers to the championship?

Chances may be slim for the championship, but we’d never blame him.

With a strong history of taking his teams to the NBA Finals (but not necessarily making it to the very end), there’s not a doubt in our minds about whether he can do it again – this time with the Los Angeles Lakers. In fact, this would be James’s 10th consecutive time making it to the Finals.

The real question is, can LeBron take the Lakers all the way to the 2019 NBA Championship? Well, let’s take a look at the potential outcomes:

  1. Probably the most painful possible scenario for King James die-hards: the Lakers lose the 1st or 2nd round of the playoffs to the Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets.
  2. The Lakers lose during the Western Conference Finals (which would still be a great accomplishment, just think about the tough competition).
  3. They win the 2019 NBA championship. Now, if James were to pull the Lakers through all the way, this would be news.

But the fact remains that, now as at 33 year-old amongst a team of 20-somethings, the world’s greatest basketball player still has his track record of bringing any team into the finals with finesse.

As for the Lakers beating out any of next year’s foreseeable championship contenders like Philadephia, Boston and even Toronto - we’ll just have to wait (or pray) and see how every player performs – because #sorrynotsorry: they’re not all King James.
