The positive energy his return brought had people thinking it might just be the spark Lakers needed.

Their most recent loss against the Suns seemed to sting more, because of Lebron’s special arrival.

Cigar Lebron James was Emotionally Defeated by the Suns
At the end of the night Cigar Lebron James was emotionally and physically defeated by the Phoenix Suns, and Lakers consistent losing. A depressed Lebron James was seen holding his face in his hands as Suns pushed their lead to 20.
What’s next for the Lakers? Do you shake up the roster completely at the trade deadline like what happened during Lebron’s last year in Cleveland? Or do they stick with the core of Lebron James, Westbrook, and Anthony Davis?
The situation is complex, because Lakers’ roster is ravaged with injuries and COVID-19 right now, and has been all season long. Anthony Davis, Kendrick Nunn, Dwight Howard, Avery Bradley, and others all weren’t playing tonight.
There is still a long season to go, so it might be still too early to sound the alarm on Lakers roster. However, if you don’t sound the alarm now, and they’re left with a disaster, they’ll end up wishing they did sound the alarm.
