In Los Angeles, the Lakers are still looking for ways to upgrade the roster. With LeBron James and Anthony Davis, they have a solid foundation to build from.
Unfortunately, what they have now is still not enough to compete for a title — and everyone knows it. In a recent segment on Undisputed, FOX’s Shannon Sharpe went so far as to call them desperate.
“Everybody knows the Los Angeles Lakers are desperate,” Sharpe said. “They want to move Russell Westbrook. They know the clock is also ticking on LeBron James. With the Lakers, if you want to get up out of Russell Westbrook, it’s gonna cost you thow two first round picks because I know you desperate, and I know you desperately want to get up off of him. So, everybody’s trying to extract as much as they possibly can out of the Lakers.”
