Anthony Davis and Los Angeles Lakers will have their eyes on the championship
With the NBA agreeing on a league restart, Davis and Los Angeles Lakers will have their eyes set on the Championship. The Lakers strengthened their side when they signed Davis last summer. When the Lakers gave up Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and multiple unprotected first-round picks for Davis, many believed it was a very huge price to pay. But once he teamed up with LeBron James, the Lakers were off to a flyer.
Soon, many put them among the favorites to win the season. Prior to the league’s suspension, they were on top of the Western Conference with 49 wins. They had the best record in the league after Milwaukee Bucks.
Last week, the NBA agreed to restart the league with 22 teams. Amidst the protests against racial discrimination, there were a few players raising concerns over the league’s resumption. Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving, among others, believed that the NBA would affect the ongoing protests. Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard later released a statement agreeing to Kyrie.
Lakers superstar LeBron James, on the contrary, has been in favor of a restart. He did not believe it would affect the fight against injustice.
Whenever the league would resume, the Lakers will be hungry to take a shot at the title.
