The Lakers have been in a similar predicament for the last few seasons.
They were the last team in NBA history to win 60 games, but lost to the Cavs in the first round.
They also had to fight to win their first title in the NBA since 1992.
This year, they are finally expected to get back to their old glory.
What can the Lakers do to get ready for the upcoming season?
Lakers head coach Luke Walton will be a major focal point.
He will have to lead a team that has never been good before and is coming off of a huge playoff run.
He has a team in great shape and will be in a position to get things back on track, should they have a chance to do so.
Lebron James will be the primary focal point for the team.
The star will need to lead his team to the playoffs for the first time in over a decade.
He can be a factor if the Lakers get back into the postseason, but there is still the question of what is the best way to go about getting there.
