The LA Lakers began their journey with a 4-0 record, and now they are heading up to the finals against the Indiana Pacers.
LeBron James and Co. Leading Los Angeles Lakers to the Finals
One of the key players for the Los Angeles Lakers this season has been none other than the superstar, LeBron James.

On average, King James has been on the court for 33.4 minutes. He is doing the best he can to get his team into the Finals.
Could the Los Angeles Lakers Dream Team Lock the Win Against the Indiana Pacers?
The Lakers’ starting five are the reason they have come this far. Apart from LeBron James, D’Angelo Russell, Anthony Davis, Cam Reddish, and Taurean Prince have been consistent in giving a boost start to the Lakers.
On top of the Lakers’ starting 5, Austin Reaves has been an impactful player for the LA Lakers, who has come off the bench. Reaves has proven himself to be a valuable player for the Lakers, making him a fan favorite.
Not just Austin Reaves but the whole team, Los Angeles Lakers, have been a fan favorite to enter the NBA Finals. If the Lakers keep the consistency against the supercharged Indiana Pacers, they will lock in the win.
