The Los Angeles Lakers were swept 4-0 in the series against the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals and there are agitated moments in the environment of the Californian team after the elimination.
LeBron opened the door to a possible retirement
After finishing the game, LeBron James set off the alarm by declaring that he needs to think about his situation about his continuity in the NBA.
“I have a lot to think about, to be honest. It’s not fun for me not being able to be a part of the NBA Finals. We’ll see what happens”declared the ‘king’.
Behind this various rumors began to emerge about who would be the players that would have to be sacrificed in order to start thinking about new reinforcements and put together a kind of new project for the following season.
LeBron and Davis must remain as the pillars of the Lakers
The two pillar players of these Lakers, LeBron James and Anthony Davis, had two great revulsives who responded at the right times; so an authoritative voice of the Lakers like Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson sentenced the names that must continue.
Magic Johnson, winner of five Larry O’Brien Trophies He pointed out the following on his Twitter account:
“Laker Nation are a couple things we now know…we have the right coach in Darvin Ham, two superstars in LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and rising stars in Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura. Hopefully Rob Pelinka will have an outstanding offseason and build on this playoff run.”.
Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura are the other two players who should stay with ‘King’ James and AD; but we’ll see what the Lakers will do to keep him on the team this offseason.
