Los Angeles Lakers are considered as the winner for next NBA title and the road to finals will not be that easy. The Lakers lost Kawhi Leonard to the LA Clippers and the recent injury of DeMarcus Cousins has also increased their troubles. Clippers, Warriors and Rockets are also getting stronger and can give them a tough fight in the Western Conference league matches. In such a situation, the top 3 players of Lakers, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and K Caldwell-Pope needs to step up in the NBA 2019-20 Season.
Let’s be honest here, the only reason Lakers are even considered for the NBA title is LeBron James. The man is the king of basketball and holds a large number of records. Even though James couldn’t do much for the Lakers in the last season, he is expected to change that in the future. Lakers depend on James too much and he needs to step up from his previous performance with the team and take them to victory.
The Lakers have Anthony Davis and LeBron James…have a blessed Sunday 🙏

Anthony Davis has yet not debuted with the Lakers and is still one of the most popular names in the team. The Lakers got Davis in a huge deal with the Pelicans where they gave almost half of their team. Davis is a six time NBA All-Star team member and is expected to win the next MVP title. Anthony also had a huge responsibility of pairing up with LeBron James as the power duo has the best odds for winning the next NBA finals.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was recently signed by the Lakers for a two-year contract at $16 million. The 26-year-old small forward/shooting guard has a lot to prove and is called as the next star of Lakers. In the last seasons with Lakers, Caldwell-Pope managed an average of 13.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game. It is not just about performance, K Pope also has to manage his health and fitness and provide enough minutes on the court.
LeBron can play point guard, shooting guard, center, or ticket salesman it dont matter Kentavious Caldwell Pope cashing these checks either way
