A new year provides a clean slate. For most of us, it provides an opportunity to enrich our lives. It could be a resolution to watch our diets, increase our exercise, spend more time with our family or grow as a person. No matter what it is or who we are, each and every one of us can use it to improve some aspect of our lives.
The same can be said for sports teams; in this case, the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have had an eventful year, full of a lot of change. They've gone through numerous head coaches, had a lot of roster turnover and have failed to live up to the lofty expectations placed upon them before the season.
Just like the rest of us, the Lakers can use the clean slate the new year provides as an opportunity to improve themselves. They can self-reflect, figure out what went right, figure out what went wrong and what they can improve going forward. Speaking of which, here are seven New Year's resolutions for the Los Angeles Lakers.
