Golden States Warriors coach Steve Kerr has labelled the Los Angeles Lakers as the front-runners to win a second consecutive NBA title.

The eight-time NBA champion explained that every side that manage to get their superstars to complement each other on the court always have the upper hand in the title race.

“That’s been kind of a hallmark of a lot of championship teams, when you have championship-calibre stars who complement each other on and off the court,” said Kerr.

“They have two of the very best players [LeBron James and Anthony Davis] in the game who complement each other very well and are very comfortable in their respective roles.

“It’s obviously a hell of a foundation upon which to build.”

Following their success in last year’s Orlando bubble, the Lakers are considered by many to be the favourites to win another NBA title.
