You see, even though LeBron James has signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, it's still Lonzo Ball's team. While building a team to be a title contender takes time, Johnson has done a very nice job so far in the NBA Draft and in free agency. The Los Angeles Clippers were just five games out of the playoffs past year. LeBron's Cavs were ultimately swept in the National Basketball Association finals, but it was James' eighth-straight trip and ninth overall to the championship series. That is more than enough time for him to eclipse just about everyone (including Michael Jordan and all time points leader Kareem Abdul Jabbar) in the scoring list. It stands to reason that two to three good teams will miss the playoffs in the West this year, just because there are only eight playoff spots. It usually comes down to the last game of the season to determine the the playoff match-ups.
James is now set to embark on this next chapter of his career where he has a chance to add to his legacy with the Lakers.
Los Angeles has the potential to make a deep run because you don't underestimate James. If the Lakers can somehow get the fourth or fifth seed, they can make a deep run. Home court is important but defense is more important because getting stops against teams that are known to score a lot can determine the outcome of the game.

Their chemistry on the floor and inside the locker room clearly helped them with the commercial, and the duo has since undergone a growing reputation as good friends since their rookie campaigns together.
Griffin also argued that while the Lakers' roster could succeed in the regular season, he's anxious the pieces around James won't allow James to excel if they do make the playoffs. These are, as you may have guessed it, when a team plays on consecutive days and are seen as a disadvantage to the team playing on the second night of one. Or, at least that's what LaVar will tell you.
