After a slow start to the season, the Los Angeles Lakers have now picked up steam and are now in the hunt for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Right now, the team sits at 38-38 which gives them the 9th seed in the standings.

The playoff picture is still looking pretty fuzzy, and the Lakers are far from locks yet. However, more and more people are starting to get convinced that the Lakers could become a very serious threat if they happen to enter the NBA playoffs.

NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas is one person who shares his excitement about the Lakers’ potential playoff appearance. Appearing on “NBA on TNT”, Thomas now said that nobody in the West wants to play LeBron and the Lakers in the first round.


“I forget who said, ‘Nobody fears LeBron’ and all this other stuff,” said Thomas. “Them seven teams that are above — one through seven — there’s not one team that’s saying, ‘I want to play LeBron and the Lakers in the first round.’ So, there is some fear there.’”
