The Los Angeles Lakers are starting to figure out the things they have to change on and off the court this season.

After having their first win of the season, the Lakers seem to be open to make certain changes in order to prolong their success. And based on the statements from the team, it appears that they will also be working on some off-court enhancements.

Coach Frank Vogel envisioned that Rajon Rondo could help the team better if he will be the starting point guard in the following games, a decision which LeBron James is also positive about.

“He’s a natural point guard and he’s been able to do that his whole career by getting the ball up to guys in transition and allowing them to attack before the defense sets,” James said about Rondo.

As the leader of the pack, James also wants to strengthen the team ’ s chemistry even outside basketball as he believes that it would help them in learning more about each other.

“Just our friendship, which is going to help our game. Continuing to learn each other, hang with each other off the floor, things of that nature,” James noted.

Evidently, the Lakers had more success when Danny Green was the one guarding his longtime teammate Kawhi Leonard, but Green’s own horn was not tooted after the loss. Based on his statement after the game, he is eager to do more in the following games.

“I did my job decently on the defensive end, but I didn’t come to play the way I should’ve all whatever minutes I played,” Green told Kevin Ding of

Even the veterans are likely to experiment this season for the Lakers. Dwight Howard recently addressed his role on the team and stated that he could do pretty much everything his coach wants him to do, The Athletic reported.

“I understand from probably the fans’ perspective they want me to come out and try to get 30 points and 30 rebounds and stuff like that. But whatever the coach needs me to do. If he wants me to score one night, then that’s what it’ll be. If he wants me to play defense, block shots, rebound, be physical in the paint, that’s what I have to do every single night,” Howard stated.

Anthony Davis has expressed his thoughts on playing center and according to him, he “doesn’t mind” doing it if that would make sense. In the team’s victory against Utah Jazz, Davis proved that he can work as a center as well which makes it obvious that Vogel will make Davis play 5 in the next games if necessary.
