As always, there are a lot of questions floating around the Los Angeles Lakers as the new season approaches.
Speaking on Spectrum SportsNet, Allie Clifton, Mike Bresnahan, and Dan Woike talked about the many storylines that could emerge for the team in 2023-24.
The biggest question, according to Bresnahan, is this: are the Lakers good enough to win it all?
He is curious if they are going to stay healthy and if the stars who rose up in the playoffs will be just as good, if not better.
And Woike is mostly curious about LeBron James: what state will he be in as he enters his 21st season in the league?

Fans of the Lakers are mostly very excited about what may come in the months ahead.
The team was able to have a resounding bounce-back last season, turning their fate around at the trade deadline and then making a strong push into the second half of the year.
They got as far as the Western Conference Finals and most people believe that they could be even better in the new year.
However, fans also admit that storm clouds could rain down on sunny southern California.
Of course, injuries could pop up once again.
If James or Anthony Davis, or any other stars, suffer many injuries, the fate of the team will suffer.
And what happens if the up-and-comers like Austin Reaves, Rui Hachimura, Jarred Vanderbilt, Gabe Vincent, and others don’t shine as bright as most expect?
That could also spell disaster for the purple and gold.
There will be plenty to be excited – and worried – about with the Lakers when the new season kicks off.NEXT: LeBron James Wants The NBA To Emulate MLB With 1 In-Game Feature
