The Los Angeles Lakers have lost 6 of their last 10 games and have fell to 9th place in the western conference. With LeBron James still battling an alleged sports hernia injury, that’s had him out the last 6 weeks; LA is worried about their season. After the trade, we’ll report a bizarre trade that involved two superstars last weekend – but was shut down after the Lonzo Ball injury.
Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka, Kobe Bryant and LeBron are now officially in panic-mode. The team has reportedly made every player on the team, except LeBron James (and client Kentavious Caldwell-Pope) available for trades. The deadline is next Thursday, February 7th at 3:00pm ET; as we expect the team to make a slew of deals that won’t include Anthony Davis.
Since their New Orleans deal is dead, the team is now focused on adding superstars through free agency. So, they’re planning to trade Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram.
With the Lake Show blueprinting things out, the likes of Terrence Ross, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington, and Garrett Temple are veteran three-point shooters the team wants to add.
James who turned 34 last month, he’s suffered his first major injury, which we don’t expect to heal this season. From our examination of LeBron, he’s looking slower and has no major lift any more.
Now that his athleticism is gone and he never developed fundamentals (consistent post-scoring, off-ball play, free-throws etc); we’re not sure if this is right move to make.
