The Los Angeles Lakers have disappointed all season and any hopes of a turnaround after the All-Star Break went up in smoke after the Lakers lost game after game against every level of opposition. And with the play-in tournament also looking like a difficult prospect to achieve at this point, questions have been asked about what the problems have been for the franchise this season and how they can be addressed over the summer.
Frank Vogel, Russell Westbrook, and Anthony Davis have all been targeted at various points during the campaign. Their positions have been questioned and the only person that has been exempt from criticism has been LeBron James, thanks to the fact that it is his incredible performances that have helped the Lakers win the few games they’ve managed to win this season.
But one of the major things that LeBron has been blamed for is the acquisition of Russell Westbrook and the loss of role players like Alex Caruso and the like to make it happen, with Magic Johnson recently calling LBJ out for it on ESPN.
