Los Angeles Lakers: 3 Weaknesses they need to address to become true title contenders

Just a couple of months into the season, the Los Angeles Lakers are lookin’ good!

They’re 21-3, good enough for the best record in the NBA, and they’re doing it by defending at a high level, running off their defense and moving the ball around in their halfcourt sets. It also doesn’t hurt that they have two of the best players in the world in LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

As of now, the Purple and Gold are top-five in defensive rating, points allowed, assists and points scored in the paint, and top-10 in fast break points.
