LeBron James is looking to add another title to his legacy.
Los Angeles Lakers
The defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers (11-3) are off to another hot start this season. Now out of the NBA bubble, it’ll be interesting to see if the Lakers can repeat this season and win the franchise’s 18th NBA title.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers (10-4) were predicted by many to win an NBA championship last season before completely melting down in the postseason. Nevertheless, the Clippers are still seeking their first title in franchise history.
After a 2-3 start to the season, the Milwaukee Bucks (9-4) have won seven of their last eight games. While the team is still at the top of the East, the playoffs is when the Bucks will have to prove they can get over the hump.
