Lakers 2019-20 Season


Gabe L., Writer

With the NBA season closer and closer each day, it’s time to start discussing what the season will look like for the Los Angeles Lakers. Last season, the Lakers had a very disappointing season with a record of 37-45 and missing the playoffs with the team’s new all-star, Lebron James. This off-season, the Lakers made a trade, involving Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart traded to the New Orleans Pelicans, and all-star forward Anthony Davis, also known as “AD”, being traded to the Lakers by request. Nearly the entire teams’ roster (even the coach) has new players, with the exception of Lebron James, Kyle Kuzma, Alex Caruso, Javale Mcgee, Rajon Rondo, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, “KCP” for short. With the new roster, the Lakers are expected to have a very good season, with an estimated record of 53 wins and 29 losses. However, reaching 50 wins won’t be easy, even with two all-stars and more all-stars in the making on the team. Many other NBA teams now have two all-stars, such as the Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, Brooklyn Nets, the Golden State Warriors, and more. With these teams also being championship favorites, it will be hard for the Lakers, even with the best current duo in the NBA. The Lakers have great talent and they could challenge anyone. 2 of the top 10 players in the world are on their team. You need many things to be a championship team, and the Lakers have all of it.
