A paradox, and an underrated obstacle for the Lakers this offseason. In a vacuum as players, LeBron and AD remain very complementary of each other. But from a standpoint of building/rebuilding the roster, they’re not nearly as ideal/flexible to build around as in ’19-20. (1x) AK – 9:38 PM

Cooper Flagg, the sequence:
-Made 3 in front of Anthony Davis
-Running pass to Keegan Murray for an open 3
-Follow lay-up over Bam Adebayo
This guy is special. Tanking season has already started. #NBADraft #NBA PM

More on this storyline

LeBron James on winning a second ring with the Lakers: ‘Of course, of course. Q. What gives you that confidence? James: Because we’ve done it before. We still have two guys who commit every single day in myself and AD, we commit to excellence and commit to winning. We’re not that far off, you know? We’re one year removed from the Western Conference Finals, this past year didn’t go as well as we would like, but we’re not that far off. There’s so many teams in the league you know so many great teams in the league, in the Western and Eastern Conference, but we don’t see that we are that far off anyways -via YouTube / July 8, 2024
