The Los Angeles Lakers are thriving nowadays. They’re the best team in the NBA and it’s not even close, as they’re currently sitting on a 24-3 record and look as sharp in the offensive end as they do in defense.

Anthony Davis’ arrival to the Staples Center has done wonders for the team, and the squad Rob Pelinka put together clicked almost instantaneously. As a matter of fact, they’re looking even better than the Los Angeles Clippers, and Milwaukee Bucks.

And even though it’s still quite early to make predictions and we don’t want to jynx any NBA team, it’s impossible not to think that the Lakers could actually break the Warriors’ 73-9 record. But, is it really possible? Let’s take a look at their schedule and figure it out:

Final Record: 74-8

It will be a big challenge for the Lakers to break the Warriors record, but they are the best team in the league and anything is possible if you have LeBron James and Anthony Davis on the same roster.

We also expect the Lakers land one more All-Star player until the February deadline and if DeMarcus Cousins returns, Los Angeles Lakers will have a powerful squad and they could win a title for the first time since 2010.

For the Lakers fans it is more important to win the Championship than to break the record because ... 73-9 Don't Mean A Thing Without The Ring.
