Lets not forget that LeBron finished last season as the Lakers leader in point scored with 30.1 per game. Not bad for a 37-year old player, on his 19th season. He also was top-three in all the major categories, assist, rebounds, blocks and steals despite missing almost 30 games during the campaign. entering his 20th season we can expect the ‘King’ to keep showing up day in and day out.  

Now the Lakers are left with some questions entering the next season. Signing LeBron James to a new deal was a most. But now the front office has to put all their effort on sort out Russell Westbrook status. He is still a part of the offer to the Brooklyn Nets to get Kyrie Irving. This move would certainly make them a big contenders for the title, but for now, Laker fans should enjoy the moment, as they will have one of the best players in league history for a couple of years.

What can we expect from the Lakers next season?

Right now, even after the LeBron James extension, the Lakers don't have a good roster to compete with the top teams in the NBA. In order to make a run for the title they will have to go over the defending champions  Warriors, the Luka Doncic Mavs, and of course over the Los Angeles Clippers. Without a trade, they don't have a chance.
