Will the Lakers win the Las Vegas Summer League championship?

One thing mostly drove the Lakers as they sought NBA supremacy both in play and entertainment value. That entailed winning an NBA championship, an instance that happened 11 of 16 times after Minneapolis moved its franchise to Los Angeles. So it should not be surprising that the Lakers’ next potential star outlined the team’s goal in Las Vegas Summer League this way.

“Just come home and win the whole thing,” Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball said. “Always come in with a winning attitude.”

Can the Lakers develop that winning attitude to bring home some championship hardware? In the latest episode of the “We Want Tacos” Lakers podcast, Ball, second-year forward Brandon Ingram, second-year center Ivica Zubac, rookie forward Kyle Kuzma, rookie shooting guard Josh Hart and Summer League coach Jud Buechler share their views on what will help them reach that goal.
