Although many will not be surprised by the lousy start to the season that the Los Angeles Lakers have had in this new 2022-2023 edition of the NBA, already knowing what they had been suffering in the previous weeks of the competition.
This is also considering that in the preseason they could only obtain one victory out of a total of six games played, and it was against Stephen Curry’s Warriors, with a very tight margin of 3 points.
Its internal conflicts and some injuries to important players have led to this bad moment that can even be called unprecedented in this franchise, and which at the same time is contrasted with an outstanding performance by LeBron James, with somewhat acceptable individual numbers for his twentieth season in the league.
In a rather difficult start, taking six games to get the first victory, the team’s coach, Darvin Ham, asked for patience, but the games continue to pass and nothing seems to have a solution. They are currently the second worst team in the NBA with a balance of 3-10 and if they don’t move in the market it doesn’t seem like things will change.
That is why the answers and solutions must be immediate if they want to save the season. The ESPN journalist, Stephen A. Smith, has granted an operation that has surprised more than one. And it is that he thinks that the star of the Lakers, LeBron James, should leave the franchise for the good of the team, since the player would be a great bargaining chip to bring other players who could improve the current situation.
