Lakers have undergone a major overhaul to their roster and coaching staff after a dissapointing first season with LeBron James. The Lakers MVP Superstar will now team up with another gem Anthony Davis to form one of the deadliest duos of this season, NBA 2019.
Lakers team in good stead to win NBA 2019 season
The L.A.Lakers have a lot to brag of going into this regular season of NBA 2019. Along with All Star duo of James and Davis, Lakers have appointed Frank Vogel as their coach. With Golden State Warriors no more invincible after Durant’s exit, Lakers have a great chance at a title shot.
Although the newly organised roster will have time to warm up in camps and Pre-season, marquee dates will he the real testers. And according to recent reports of NBA schedule 2019-20, Lakers’ first is going to be as tough as they could ask for.
Los Angeles city is looking forward to a treat
Although the LeBron headed team are confirmed for a match with Clippers on Christmas Day, there’s another treat for the Los Angeles fans. Shams Carania of The Athletic reports that Lakers will take on Clippers for their first match of NBA 2019.

Clippers will have the home advantage this time according to Brad Turner. This will only be the second opening match of the second most successful franchisee on road since 2005.
They also started last season on the road in a defeat to Portland Trail Blazers. James had a great debut outing for the Lakers though with 26 points.
The Los Angeles Clippers on the other hand are riding high with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George signings. Lebron’s team were on the verge of signing Leonard but Clippers grabbed the free agent of NBA 2019.
Sources confirm that tentative plan is Clippers and Lakers will meet opening night Oct. 22 at Staples Center. It will be Clippers home game. Here we go: Kawhi/PG and LeBron/AD #NBAhoops
