Recent Lakers rumors are that the team is very excited about the news to resume the season in Disney World, as they chase a title.
As the country begins to heal from the coronavirus, recent Lakers rumors have been about what the NBA is going to look like when it resumes.
As the first of the major sports to shut down during the coronavirus, it looks like the NBA will be the first to resume. This has been a goal of the league, and along with the NHL, these two leagues should be the first back in action.
Getting back on the court is important for the league, but it is also important for the fans. Considering the season was almost completed, everyone had their idea of who was the best team in the league. For many, the Lakers were that pick.
"“There is certainly a level of excitement to get this thing going, and of course there’s the idea that they’re going to have to wait five weeks or so before they play games, but they’re feeling pretty good right now.”"
For the Lakers, the season resuming is huge. This is a team that is built to win now, and one that might not have the biggest championship window depending on how James ages. Even though he has been playing like an MVP this season, it is hard to predict how long he can sustain this level of play.
With this being a strange situation, the Lakers will also be losing any kind of home-court advantage that they should have had in the playoffs. As the No.1 seed in the Western Conference, the road to the NBA Finals should have been going through the Staples Center.
However, the Lakers will have to be prepared for anything really when the season resumes. Luckily, the Lakers have been one of the best road teams in the NBA this season, and that is what this situation will be like.
As a very close group, the Lakers should be able to handle being in Orlando for a few months. With the ultimate goal of winning a title, the Lakers will have a good chance to do so when the season resumes.
