What About The King?

LeBron is gearing up for his Laker duties. Though he will not be playing in the preseason opener against the Golden State Warriors, he is very much ready for the season. There is a video doing the rounds in which LeBron is asked how he feels about being the oldest player in the league. He answers it with a thunderous slam dunk.

LeBron is gunning for his fifth title. Lakers have re-tuned their already well built roster from last year. They brought in Jaxson Hayes and Christian Wood to pose the length that they were missing against the Denver Nuggets. By the look of things, the Nuggets vs the Lakers season opener is going to be a barn burner, as both teams would want to exert their dominance.
