LeBron James, Lakers HC lauds team’s ability to prove doubters wrong with amazing comeback: “No one thought we’d even have a sniff at the postseason

The Los Angeles Lakers‘ inspiring playoff push has taken them from fighting for a spot in the play-in tournament to being on the verge of something special. Despite starting the season with a record of 2-10, the Lakers have managed to turn things around and are now up 1-0 in the second round of the playoffs. Head coach Darvin Ham credits the team’s success to changes made at the deadline, which brought in pieces that were a natural fit for LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Despite the doubters, those who know the potential of James and Davis were not surprised by the Lakers’ comeback. The question now is whether they can bring home a title or fall short once again after coming so far.

The Lakers are used to playing high-stakes games, having been playing playoff basketball for 2.5 months now. The path ahead only gets harder, and the margin for error will continue to diminish as the playoffs move closer to a conclusion. But the Lakers are ready for the challenge, and there’s no denying that they belong here and have a shot against anyone when fully healthy.

LeBron James believes that the team’s resilience in games since the acquisitions have made them ready for the postseason. The Lakers have established themselves and are fully engaged in what they’re doing. Ham always tells the team that they will only go as far as their work habits take them, and they have certainly put in the work to get this far.

The Lakers’ story is not over yet, and only time will tell how it will end. But one thing is certain: they have come a long way, and their hard work has paid off. Whether they bring home a title or not, they have already proved that they belong in the playoffs and that they are a team to be reckoned with.

Technical Trouble for LeBron James in Game 2 Against Warriors

LeBron James received a rare technical foul in Game 2 against the Warriors after a frustrating sequence late in the game. With the Lakers trailing big in the third quarter, James attempted a three-pointer with Andrew Wiggins contesting the shot. After the shot missed, James turned to the referee to express his frustration with what he believed was a missed foul call by Wiggins. Referee Pat Fraher responded by hitting James with a technical foul.

The conversation between James and Fraher continued while the crowd at the Chase Center booed in the background. At the time of the call, the Lakers were down by 27 points with less than a minute left in the third quarter.

Although the game was largely decided by that point, James will have to endure getting hit with his first technical foul of the postseason on the same night that the Warriors evened the series 1-1.

The Lakers will have a chance to bounce back in Game 3, which is set to take place on Saturday at Crypto.com Arena in L.A. Tipoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET. James and the Lakers will need to put the frustration of Game 2 behind them and focus on getting back on track in their pursuit of a championship.
