LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers find themselves in a precarious position after falling into a 2-0 deficit against the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals.

While LeBron remains hopeful, basketball legend Charles Barkley has a much bleaker outlook for the Purple and Gold, firmly believing that their championship hopes have been dashed.

During the recent broadcast of the Boston Celtics-Miami Heat Game 2, Barkley expressed his take on the Lakers-Nuggets series.

Going beyond a mere prediction, Barkley went as far as to "guarantee" that the Lakers are destined for defeat against Denver.

In a seemingly taunting manner, Barkley even expressed his excitement about playing golf in Denver, boasting about the city's numerous beautiful courses, seemingly suggesting that the Lakers' season will end prematurely.

It's difficult to fault Barkley for his lack of confidence in the Lakers. With the Nuggets holding a commanding 2-0 lead, the Lakers have shown little promise in the first two games.

Despite Anthony Davis' impressive 40-point performance in Game 1, it was not enough to secure a victory. Game 2 saw a lackluster performance from Davis, with no other Lakers stepping up to fill the void.

The Nuggets have also showcased their superior depth, highlighting why fans and experts, including Barkley, doubt the Lakers' ability to mount a competitive comeback.

Considering Barkley's infamous history with his "guarantees," it seems the Lakers will require nothing short of a miracle to prove him wrong this time.
