The team have finished top in the Pacific Division for the last five years, but currently sit two wins adrift of the Sacramento Kings at the bottom of the division, and could still finish last in the Western Conference.
The guard, who has been linked with a move away from the team this summer, told ESPN: "I always wanted to be a Laker and it will be a dream come true to still be here, but it's crazy. You never know what happens.
"Last year they had a whole different team. It's obvious they're going to make some changes. I would love to finish off here as a Laker. My kids get to go to school and say, 'My dad is a Laker.' That's big.
"Obviously the Lakers always find a way to get back into it. You can never count the Lakers down too much."
This season will be just the second time in the last 19 campaigns that the Lakers have not been involved in the playoffs.
