The NBA is a few weeks from playoff mode, and James has himself and the Lakers squarely in the mix to compete for championship. It is a rare bit of normalcy for a player who appeared in eight consecutive NBA Finals from 2011 through and including 2018, and for a franchise that has won 16 championships. (AP Photo/Mark J.
