This wall art gives fans a glimpse of a possible destiny that is about to happen. Different murals are painted to laud the achievements of players and other noteworthy moments.

They come in different shapes and sizes, with iconic memories or photographs being the key focus. James is determined to win his 5th NBA title, and this mural is a fitting tribute to the superstar.

The NBA 2021-22 season is turning up to become a great season in terms of unpredictability. The Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, and the Lakers are a few of the teams who are the favorites to win the title. If they put in an impressive performance, then the wall-painting would do complete justice.

Significantly, James, AD, and Westbrook are ready to set aside their egos and focus on winning as a team to win titles for the franchise. In terms of potential, they have what it takes to win the title. But victories don’t happen with predictions.

Performances will be key on the court. Anthony’s addition to the roster would be important to gain invaluable experience while proving a good outlet from beyond the arc. The Lakers have struggled beyond the three-point line in recent seasons. Thus, his addition will make a significant difference to the squad.
