The general consensus regarding the timeline of the Los Angeles Lakers is that any titles the team may win with LeBron James will come in the the future, when it has a chance to add more star players in free agency or via trades.

But head coach Luke Walton isn’t discounting what the team can accomplish this season, as he told Sam Amick of The Athletic:

“With what we have, and with it being [pro] sports, if we can get healthy we can beat anyone. It doesn’t happen often, but you look through the history of sports and there are teams that weren’t supposed to be ready or weren’t supposed to win [it all] that beat other teams, and we have—in my opinion—the best player in the world. And he has proven that he can do the impossible for however many straight years now, so can this be a special season? For sure.”
