The Los Angeles Lakers are the current NBA champions and remain one of the best teams in the Western Conference. Although the first half of the season didn't end the best way for them, everybody within the organization is hopeful that they can turn things around and find success once again.

They are missing Anthony Davis right now and have to play without him for a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, LeBron James is trying to help the team as much as he can but things don't look that promising for them. The King recently reflected on this situation, saying he likes where they are right now but he doesn't love where they stand at this moment.

“We’ve hit the injury bug as of late. And also with a little of Covid restrictions kept a lot of our guys out. But I like where we are. I don’t love where we are because we have losses,” James said. “If we were 36-0, I’d be fine. Any time we lose, I don’t like it.

“I like where we are. I’m looking forward to the second half of the season. It’s going to be extremely fun. Our group is motivated to get back to where we know we need to be. Going down the stretch to the playoffs. For me personally, it’s my job to be the MVP every night for our ball club in order to help us win basketball games. That’s been my motto since I came into the league.”

They are set to resume play next Friday against the Indiana Pacers. James will try to lead this team to the victory in their first game back, something that could give them the boost they need to face the remainder of the season. The Lakers are still the team to beat in the league and that doesn't seem to be changing unless we see a blockbuster trade in the next couple of weeks.
