The Los Angeles Lakers are rolling, although this is not surprising. If they hold the course, the long drought to making the NBA playoffs will likely be over. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are doing well for Los Angeles but the better question is up to when will this last.

Most know how the Lakers moved heaven and earth to get Davis onboard last summer. However, there was that forgotten part of the deal. This is concerning Davis' impending free agency in 2020. Brian Windhorst of ESPN mentioned this before although it is technically a dead topic with the 26-year-old All-Star happy in Hollywood.

With things going great, it comes to no surprise that Davis has not discussed anything about his impending free agency. In fact, it appears there is nothing really to discuss. If ever he does consider moving out, it may take a mountain of issues to do so. At the rate things are going right now, seeing that happen is close to impossible.

The Lakers recently defeated the Miami Heat, 95-80. The victory allowed the purple and gold to improve to 7-1 and lord it over the NBA Western Conference. It was their 7th win in a row since dropping their season-opener to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Up next for Los Angeles is the defending NBA champion Toronto Raptors. Despite the departure of Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors have proven that they still have what it takes to contend. They are currently 6-2 in the Eastern Conference, a game behind the leading Boston Celtics.

That upcoming match should be another acid-test for the Lakers. Though they have the manpower, it remains that both James and Davis cannot do it alone. The supporting cast has risen to the occasion. Danny Green has been doing his share, same with Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee, and Avery Bradley.

With all cylinders running smoothly, the Lakers have great chances of making the playoffs and possibly winning an NBA title. Given the scenario that he is in, a conflict of biblical proportions may be the only thing that could see Davis bolt the Lakers next summer.
