It is well known that LeBron James is one of the best basketball players today. However, his team has not had a good start this NBA season. In fact, the Los Angeles Lakers are ninth in the Western Conference with 24 wins and 27 losses.
Individually, LeBron has an average of 29.1 points per game, his best mark since the 2009-2010 season. He is also averaging 7.7 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game.
The team has had many problems defensively, averaging 110.1 points allowed per 100 possessions for the opposing team. It is true that injuries to certain players have contributed to this defensive problem, but the team has not looked for any solution to start climbing the table.
