Before the NBA season came to a screeching halt because of the coronavirus, the Los Angeles Lakers were one of the most impressive teams in the association. After acquiring Anthony Davis in the offseason to pair with LeBron James, the star duo was exhilarating, leading Frank Vogel’s team to a 49-14 record, second-best in the league behind the Milwaukee Bucks.

In James’ second year in Tinseltown, he looked well on his way to taking the Lakers deep into the playoffs. But without Davis, there’s absolutely no way that this team would currently be one of the favorites out of the Western Conference.

LeBron is once again enjoying an impressive campaign, dropping 25.7 points while also dishing out an NBA-best 10.6 assists. With another star beside him in AD, James has had a load taken off his back because now, he’s not the only player who is relied on to do all the scoring.

With the rest of the 2019-20 campaign yet to be concluded, let’s take a look at three takeaways from LeBron’s season thus far.
