The Lakers’ biggest problem

Reading Time: 2 minutesThere are a lot of issues with this season’s Los Angeles Lakers. Injuries, lack of shooting, lack of defense, and lack of good coaching are all things people look at when talking about how disappointing they have been this season. Oh, and people love to point the finger at Russell Westbrook, even though he has picked up his play recently. However, no one really talks about the main issue. As a matter of fact, in my opinion, this is the main reason the Lakers are struggling: the poor play of star Anthony Davis.  Remember Anthony Davis...

The Los Angeles Lakers are in serious trouble

Reading Time: 4 minutesThe Los Angeles Lakers were the championship pick of many, but they have done little to reaffirm those convictions. Due to questionable off-season moves and little flexibility, the current iteration of the Los Angeles Lakers is not a championship-caliber team. By adding Russell Westbrook, the Lakers completely punted on depth (which kept them in the playoffs towards the end of last season), defense (the biggest reason they won the championship in 2020), and shooting (they shot 48.9% from the field in the 2020 playoff, first amongst all teams). But besides that, and the fact that Westbrook...

Reviewing the Lakers’ Season

Reading Time: 4 minutesHow would you grade the Lakers season?  An argument could be made for either side, as to whether it was good or bad.  In the end, everyone could have a different opinion about this question.   However, I would use one word that sums up the Laker’s season, disappointing. The Lakers got so much hype after acquiring Dennis Schroeder and Montrezl Harrell as a lot of fans thought they would repeat as champions and that they were even better now.  They definitely got some good players throughout the offseason, but they also lost crucial players from...

What the Trade Deadline Meant for the Lakers

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe Los Angeles Lakers played it safe at the trade deadline, electing not to pull the trigger on Kyle Lowry or other rumored players such as Terrance Ross that would have enhanced their win-now window. The Lakers were reportedly unwilling to trade young, promising wing Talen Horton-Tucker in a deal for Lowry, but they were listening to offers for Montrezl Harrell and willing to trade Dennis Schroder in a Lowry deal. With Harrell expected to be competing with Andre Drummond for minutes at Center as well as the current bigs on the roster), it makes sense...
