The Los Angeles Lakers seem to be doing really well in this season. Just as the Western Conference got over, the o, Qnine places from where they finished in 2018/19. A lot may have to say that Anthony Davis’ signing completely boosted the team, there will be yet another set of people to say that the purple and gold have stuck together all over. Besides, they thrived together as a single unit.
How did they build such a strong bond in just a span of a couple of months?
LeBron James had signed for the Lakers in the year 2018 off season, which in turn raged a lot of expectations among everyone. The audiences were awestruck of King James but things didn’t actually go according to the plan. LeBron stood up to be strong, and the Lakers did make a bit of alterations in this coming season. The lake show called several free agents to offer essentials towards gaining success, beside the Anthony Davis trade. Danny Green and Dwight Howard are two of the most prominent free agents who had joined the LA Lakers during 2019. Definitely, it is until the 2019 off season that could finally uphold the success of the team. Three of the current starters of Lakers were in the first year, yet the rhythm that the team shares speaks a lot about the effort that they have put towards taking this entire team to the Western Conference Finals.
In a recent hologram interview with Isiah Thomas, Frank Vogel detailed on the team’s mindset at the beginning of the season, versus now, where they are just two wins away from making the NBA finals. Vogel has repeatedly mentioned it in his speech talking about his belief in the team and his confidence on the players as the season was progressing. Vogel said, “I felt like the beginning of the year it would be a little bumpy because everything was so new. New roster, new coaching staff — you know everybody trying to learn each other. We all had a great belief about what we could accomplish.”
LeBron James definitely deserves a special mention in this context. It is undeniable that James played an absolutely selfless role in this season and it is none other than James who did raise up the confidence of his team mates till the end of the match.
