Kobe Bryant offers advice for the Lakers after LeBron's lost season

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. Things have been anything but easy for LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers this season, but these times of struggle are what makes the ultimate reward that much more satisfying.

"You don't even try to wrap your head around it". But while James promised fans that a return trip to the playoffs is on the horizon, one analyst took issue with these comments. "You got to come out and do the work". "He set the bar so high that if he averages 25 (points), eight (boards), and eight (assists) that's not enough".

The last time the NBA's best player was not in the post-season was in 2004-2005, his second season with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Granted, James - a three-time National Basketball Association champion and four-time league Most Valuable Player - was adamant back in September that the task of rebuilding the Lakers, who had missed the playoffs for five straight seasons would be a long-term project. "If LeBron James does not win a championship in L.A., other than Elgin Baylor who retired in '72, the same year they won the title, he will be the greatest marquee player to ever wear purple and gold and not deliver a 'ship to the Lakers".

James Harden scored 27 points in the first quarter and matched his career best of 61 as the Houston Rockets rallied late to beat the San Antonio Spurs 111-105. "As a kid that's what you dream about".

Such hopes were dashed when a groin injury forced James to miss 17 straight games in the regular season, with the Lakers going 6-11 in that spree.

But as Laker Nation counts the days between now and the NBA Draft Lottery and July 1 start of free agency, the NBA community at-large remains skeptical that the Lakers will get another star in free agency to pair with James - at least, among the big names.

American Harden finished nine of 13 from beyond the arc and shot 19 of 34 from the floor. "If they do just a little, take a little jump, they bounce right up with him". "I love having girls - I'm super, super excited about that".

"So that's not me feeling sorry for us".
