Kendrick Perkins takes to social media to praise Lebanon James as a state show at a state show this season, suggesting he is one of the best.
The Los Angeles Lakers committed themselves to being a top-tier defense year in 2019 and in 2018. This was when he traded for two-way superstar Anthony Davis and appointed Frank Vogel as his new head coach.
Anthony Davis is the DPOY candidate for the shoo-in yearly, while Frank Vogel is known for defensive schemes that revolve around longtime defenders and limited switches.

LeBron James has always been praised for being a solid defender. In his Miami days, Lebron was considered perhaps the best defensive player the league had to offer.
James recently made it public that he wants the Lakers to prioritize defense this season. “Our goal is to become the No. 1 defense in the league,” he said.
With Anthony Davis anchoring the Lakers’ defense and James hitting shots at a high rate, the Lakers are likely to do well at LeBron’s will.
