The 2021-22 Los Angeles Lakers will always be remembered for being one of the most dysfunctional superteams ever put together. The team was built with the idea of using former superstars out of their prime and hoping they gel around LeBron James. However, it did not work out as the Lakers have cemented an eleventh seed finish this season.
This was NBA’s 75th Anniversary Season, and four players on the Lakers were felicitated as the top 75 players in NBA history. However, having those players like LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, and Carmelo Anthony didn’t end up resulting in even moderate success.
Another player who was on the 75th Anniversary Team was Shaquille O’Neal, who won 3 titles with the Lakers. He has been a vocal critic of the team all season long, and went into the team for being eliminated from the play-in tournament on his ‘The Big Podcast’.
