Although the Lakers haven’t made the playoffs since the 2012-13 season, they’ve been struggling to maintain their previous status as a team to be reckoned with. Julius Randle, who joined the team a year after that aforementioned season, says  the team has been taking big steps forward in its development.

In the article below, he goes into why they are starting to command respect  and why this competitive team can’t be overlooked by the rest of the league any longer. What do you think?

Inspiring Quotes for Success in Business

I am always motivated by inspiration through quotes — both for success in business and indeed in life. Here are some good ones:

“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

– Winston S. Churchill

“There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.”

– Ray Goforth

“Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”

Albert Einstein

“Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.”

– Tony Hsieh

“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.”

– Anonymous

“People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

– Tony Robbins

Awaiting Ball’s Return

The Lakers and their fans are anxiously awaiting Lonzo Ball’s return sooner rather than later, as he is a crucial part of their offense. Missing the last seven games due to a sprained MCL, Ball is still not cleared for play.
