The hype train for LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers isn’t slowing down after last night’s 123-101 preseason win over the Golden State Warriors.
The game meant nothing in the grand scheme, but fans of the purple and gold have to be excited after watching their prized trade acquisition drop 22 and 10 in only 18 minutes. James added 15 points and eight assists in the same amount of time.
After the game, LeBron had a message for Davis and his teammates on Instagram.
My dog a MONSTER!!!.Damn it felt good to get back out there once again! Felt like a kid in a candy store. Building good habits everyday along this process. Good start squad #LakeShow
Heading into the season, the Lakers are projected by many to be the second-best team in their own city.
The Clippers might be the Western Conference favorites, as long as Paul George is healthy.
However, LeBron and AD are as good a duo as any in the league. If Kyle Kuzma returns from his foot injury and the Lakers get contributions from role players like Danny Green and Avery Bradley, the team should be able to compete in a suddenly wide-open West.
