If LeBron wants to win more NBA championships with the Lakers, here's what he needs to do.

It will be very important to give seriousness to this preseason because as mentioned in the Locked on Lakers podcast last season the preseason was not given the proper seriousness and the season ended up being a real disaster. These six games will allow us to see the ideas already implemented by Darwin Ham, besides being able to see the physical condition of players like Anthony Davis and LeBron James.

It is also worth mentioning that we will probably see the full roster, with or without Russell Westbrook, who is expected to leave the team, and the possible arrivals of Kyrie Irving and Patrick Beverly. The latter has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers in recent days. The preseason game against the golden state warriors will also be key to better plan for the first game of the season against them.

The importance of getting into rhythm in the preseason 

Last season, the preseason gave us a warning of the failure that was on the way, as we did not win a single one of the 6 games played. Although LeBron James and Anthony Davis were not present in all of them, neither were the stars of the respective rivals. Let's hope that this year things will be different since the preseason.
