• The Los Angeles Lakers have clinched the No. 1 spot in the Western Conference
  • Anthony Davis' lack of playoff experience should not be a concern for the Lakers, says a report
  • Davis has been the Lakers' top scoring option as LeBron James thrives on the primary PG role

The Los Angeles Lakers cannot wait to get back to playoff action after they secured the top spot in the Western Conference for the first time in a decade.

The excitement is already apparent with still four seeding games left to be played inside the Orlando bubble despite their recent offensive woes.

Not even the inexperience of Anthony Davis in postseason play could tone down their confidence in their bid for another NBA championship.

Amid the success, the Lakers have been scrutinized all year. Doubts from skeptics are piling up right on the heels of clinching the No.1 spot in their conference - most of which are targeted towards Davis’ lack of exposure in the postseason battlefield.

But fans of the purple and gold should not be too worried as the Lakers are not entirely disadvantaged in terms of experience when compared to their potential matchups in the playoffs, according to Jason Reed on the Lake Show Life.

“When the going gets tough, is Anthony Davis going to get going? Will his lack of playoff experience ultimately hurt the Lakers, especially in this unique situation where experience might be the best attribute to have? Should Lakers fans be worried?” Reed asked.

“Our answer? No. Anthony Davis’ playoff inexperience is not something that Lakers fans should worry about and there are several reasons why.”

The 27-year-old star has become the Lakers’ No.1 scoring option as LeBron James has taken the primary facilitator’s role for the team. In his first season in L.A., the former Kentucky Wildcat scattered 26.8 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.4 blocks across 58 games while shooting 50.7% from the field, 84.9% from the charity stripe, and 34.3% from the three-point territory.

But while it’s true that the intense atmosphere during the Playoffs is nothing compared to that in the regular season – let alone in an unprecedented bubble tournament - Davis is still expected to be poised in delivering the same numbers for the Lakers.

“Yes, (the) experience is very valuable in the Orlando bubble because of how unique this situation is. On paper, that should make us worried about Anthony Davis’ inexperience. However, when you break down who the Lakers have to go through to win championship number 17, it becomes clear that it is not a disadvantage” Reed added.

After all, the seven-time All-Star has had enough morale-testing games in the past that have shaped him to become fit for the postseason tilt.
