With Ham’s onboarding comes heightened morale with fans and pundits itching for the start of the new season. Fans’ expectations for a title run in the 2022-23 NBA season are not far fetched. Ham will be keen to build a roster he can work with, taking on the challenge of “each day as it comes.”

NBA Hall of Famer Grant Hill also believes the franchise is experiencing a morale boost. He stated that he is certain the Lakers talisman is “super motivated” right now.

Despite it being Ham’s first season as he tries to get a lay of the land being his first head coach job. Hill was of the opinion that James could attempt to secure his fifth championship ring, calling it “his last opportunity.”

“I know LeBron is right now super motivated,” Hill said. “The end is near. This could be really his last opportunity to really go for it and contend and attempt to try to get that fifth ring.”

Hill ended by saying that LeBron is probably doing everything possible to get himself ready for Ham’s approach to coaching.

“It should be an exciting season. I know LeBron is doing everything possible to try and get prepared for him, hopefully a title run.”

Having missed two playoffs in the past four seasons, a playoff appearance in the 2022-23 NBA season is a must for LeBron James and the LA Lakers.

Their floor for the upcoming season should be making it to the second round of the playoffs at least.

Aged 37 with about two more seasons left in him, James will seek out a fifth ring in the coming seasons. Whether Ham can help him get there is debatable but not out of reach with the quality on the Lakers roster.
