LeBron James and the LA Lakers seem to be coasting at the start of the 2020-21 campaign, which is understandable given their extremely short offseason. However, the Lakers are still tied with three other teams for the best record in the entire league and currently sit at 7-3.
On the other hand, while the Houston Rockets have not had the greatest start to the season, the pairing of John Wall and James Harden has offered glimpses of potential. Christian Wood continues to look like a MIP candidate but the Rockets' are still below 0.500.
