Over the last two seasons, including the playoffs, LeBron James-led teams are 67-98-2 (40.6%) ATS in their last 167 games.
This season, James is averaging 27 points per game, as well as 8.7 rebounds and 8.0 assists. With Monday night's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Lakers record dropped to 30-34 on the season. The team is 5.5 games back of the eighth spot in the West and with just 18 games left, things aren't looking too good.
The Los Angeles Lakers cannot lose more than six games, none of the remaining games before the playoffs. Despite it not being a first nor coming as a surprise to supporters, LeBron James is used to success, so it's going to be a hard pill to swallow that's for sure.
Even though there weren't many expectations heading into the season, it's safe to say that the Los Angeles Lakers have been a disappointment in year one under LeBron James.
We learned after Tuesday's practice that Kyle Kuzma (sprained ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Denver, while Brandon Ingram (shoulder), Tyson Chandler (neck) and Lance Stephenson (toe) are all questionable.
Now, LeBron James has assessed the ongoing season and has confirmed that the injuries that have plagued the Lakers have had a big say in their standing this season.
Lakers now sit comfortably outside the playoffs after losing to Clippers and several other teams they had no business losing to. He averaged 20.7 points per game in February.
Reggie Bullock has also been a key player, with 10.8 points per game and with five years of experience, he is one of the players who can contribute space and help the youngest players in the team.
