After the last season, the Lakers were able to make it to the WCF when everything pointed out to be a massive failure and have the franchise with a second playoff-less season in a row, the team's GM Rob Pelinka and coach Darvin Ham made a bet on stability and consistency by bringing back the core of the group for the next campaign.

Last season was a roller coaster that began with a 2-10 start and resulted in realistic championship hopes until the Denver Nuggets eliminated the Purple and Gold in the Western Conference Finals.

Los Angeles continued that momentum into the offseason by keeping Austin Reaves, Russell, and Hachimura and adding formidable role players in Gabe Vincent, Taurean Prince, and Jaxson Hayes, among others.

The top games to look forward to if you are a purple and gold fan are, for starters the season opener, that not only will the return of the team to the court, but the most anticipated rematch, as LA will be playing at Denver Nuggets on October 24, 7:30 pm ET. The next game to follow is the at-home season opener that will be played against Kevin Durant's Phoenix Suns.

The Lakers' season prediction is optimistic

The positive angle to look at the Lakers this season is that this team was significantly better after last season's roster moves, caught fire on the way to the Western Conference Finals, and is coming off an excellent offseason that saw it add talent while maintaining continuity. With this said, we are looking for the LA Lakers to have an excellent campaign and settle in as the No. 2 or 3 seed in the Western Conference with a 50-32 record.
