Headlined by the legendary LeBron James and Anthony Davis, they’ve been complemented brilliantly by the likes Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Dennis Schroder and veteran Marc Gasol, as they’re looking like the team to beat so far.
Producing the goods both offensively and defensively, they’re proving to be an irresistible force at present. By the numbers, they have the third best defensive record and the seventh best scoring record, which has given them a solid foundation to build from.

How well their new arrivals have adapted to life has been a positive too, for Gasol, Schroeder and excellent sixth man Montrezl Harrell are contributing brilliantly.
With star man, James, in beautiful form, this is illustrated by the fact he’s averaging 24.2 points per game, 7.5 assists pg and 8.3 rebounds pg.
Meanwhile, their other truly elite operator in Davis, has shone brightly on the defensive end as he’s supplemented his 22.5 points pg by leading the team in terms of blocks, steals and rebounds.
Coach Frank Vogel deserves credit for his work leading the team too, for he’s doing a fine job of getting the best out of his players and setting the conditions for them to thrive.
While it’s still early days in the season, the Lakers, who are priced at $3.50 to take home the NBA Championship, are justifiably the early favourites courtesy of their electric start to the new campaign.
