Fans can only hope that there are more murals to come. If the Lakers reap success on the court, then it’s a foregone conclusion.
LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook have indicated that they’re all on the same page in their quest for a title. The fit may not be seamless, but the stars are willing to sacrifice individual accolades for team success.
It remains to be seen how the Lakers put it all together once the games start to count. But it’s hard to count out a stacked team with LeBron James at the helm.
