The Los Angeles Lakers are returning to the NBA Playoffs this season.
The Purple and Gold missed the big party last season, but everything has changed.
One of their young players, Austin Reaves, will make his debut in the postseason this year.
The guard knows this will be a big challenge, but explained that the Lakers are ready for it.

The Lakers turned this season around and made it to the playoffs after winning their play-in game.
For the most part of the season, they ranked 13th in the Western Conference standings.
As the playoffs approached, things changed for the Lakers.
Now, they are the 7th seed in the Western Conference, set to face the Memphis Grizzlies in the playoffs.
This will be a difficult series for them, as the Grizzlies are young and hungry to win.
Still, the Lakers also have youth and two experienced superstars who already know how to win in the league.
As long as they have LeBron James and Anthony Davis on the court, the Lakers will stand a chance.
This will be a hard way to start the playoffs, but this team is confident that they can do big things.
Austin Reaves can be their X-factor in the postseason.
Darvin Ham also knows what it takes to win, and now it’s time to do it with the Lakers.
This will be one of the most entertaining matchups of the playoffs.
The Lakers can make history this season, but first, they need to get past the Grizzlies.NEXT: Analyst Makes A Bold Prediction About Lakers, Grizzlies Playoff Series
