11 Jul Should the Lakers Be Dismissed?
No, the Los Angeles Lakers should not only be dismissed to acquire against the 2019-20 NBA championship because they have their own star duo that can match up with the Clippers at LeBron James and Anthony Davis. (Side note: How mad are Clippers-Lakers games likely to be next season?)
Will it actually mean the Lakers have to attempt now to win the title? Sure, but that may be easier said than done after sitting on their hands on many of free agency while awaiting Kawhi Leonard’s choice.
The Lake Show’s supporting cast is really a skip fire compared to what the Staples Center roommates can put on the court and unless you will find far more veteran buyouts to come on board to the gold and purple (ahem, Andre Iguodala), the truth is that even with LeBron and the Brow, they are simply outgunned.
I would not touch them at +400 to win the title and I don’t feel bad for any of those suckers who took them at +185 with some sportsbooks when it was projected that they were getting Kawhi too.
