The failure of Lakers is consumed. The Lakers of LeBron James has not got it not even play-in. A team that is supposed that aspired to be champions of NBA and fight with the biggest teams, has made a historical ridiculous. They are not between the 10 first teams of West Conference in a fight that including only 15 teams.
This result is a wallop to the project. LeBron has been with MVP level, doing during all the season incredible performances. However, this individual fortress could not help the team go achieves playoffs or at least enter on the play-in phase. Anthony Davis said some days ago that if he had not been injured during this long time, the situation would be totally different from now. The problem is that when relevant players like Davis or Rusell Westbrook, either achieved big results (just narrowly surpassing 50% of victories). This group of players basically did not work.
Tonight, win against Suns (the best team of NBA) would be impossible. So it was. Although the team of Frank Voegel started nice and with some advantage on the scoreboard, after the first half, everything collapsed. At the break, Suns just was 5 points ahead. On the start of second half and with 9 minutes played, Lakers was 26 points down. Game over.
This was a game with little interest. It is true that LeBron was not there, but at this times, little would have changed. “The King” has given everything of his talent and effort during months playing a lot of periods of time on the matches. But this time, the solution was not score 50 points. The summer planning for this new season and new team was a total disaster. Therefore, the team of California is now thinking about the 22-23 season. This probably will be the last season of Lebron James with MVP level. Also, there will be some changes surely. Frank Voegel will not continue on the bench on Lakers. Rob Pelinka maybe as well on the offices.
The only sure thing about this team is that LeBron James and Anthony David will leas this planning the next season. Rusell Westbrook is still a mystery. The season was a failure. But this is the good point of this league. NBA gives you time to other chance on the next months.
