The Los Angeles Lakers are struggling in this season’s championship and are in ninth place in the Western Conference. LeBron James, however, is not stopping to show why he is known as ‘The King.’ Based on his recent performances with the Lakers, he has shown a great ability to score for his team. A few games ago against the Golden State Warriors, he scored a season-high 56 points and led the team to a victory at a score of 116-124.
