After LeBron James’ first-ever first-round playoff loss, the Los Angeles Lakers need to do these three things to please The King this offseason.

The Los Angeles Lakers’ season didn’t pan out the way they hoped it would. They started strong, but injuries to stars Anthony Davis and LeBron James derailed everything. They never found their rhythm after AD and James returned, eventually losing to the Phoenix Suns in the first round.

Heading into the offseason, the Lakers need to find ways to reload for another title run, as The King isn’t getting any younger. There are three moves the Lakers need to make, so LeBron is happy and confident heading into next season.

3. Lakers must get Anthony Davis back to 100 percent

The easiest and most important move the Lakers can make this season is getting Anthony Davis back to 100 percent. This past season saw the big man suffer various injuries, which impacted his play. A calf strain, back spasms and groin issues were a few of the ailments Davis endured this season.

The Brow has proven that he is a generational talent when he is healthy, as he dominated the postseason last year en route to an NBA title. James knows that if LA has any shot at winning the title, their big man must be injury-free. He touched on this during his postgame press conference after Game 6.

“Obviously, the number one thing for us is getting AD healthy. That’s number one. It doesn’t matter what changes we make. We got to get big fella healthy and needs back to where he was before the injury,” James said, per ClutchPoints.

Most of the time, when The King speaks, people listen. The Lakers know that working on Davis’ health this offseason is paramount. Getting The Brow back to his usual self will put a smile on LeBron’s face and strike fear into the rest of the NBA.
