Jared Dudley has made a bold prediction about how the Lakers will improve their roster for the upcoming season. The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off of a very impressive win against the Miami Heat. The Lakers were able to take down the Heat in only 6 games and were impressive while doing so. But it was not all good this season.
Obviously, everyone is still dealing with the COVID-19 situation. But the NBA was not immune to the troubles that it brought to the world. The NBA had to postpone the season and eventually restart. But they had to restart in a bubble format.
But this is not all. The Lakers also had to deal with the passing of Kobe Bryant. This was very difficult. LeBron James talked about this recently.
“Of course, you think there’s going to be time for us to get together and I understand that there are regrets in life, but I definitely wish I had that moment with him,” James told Yahoo Sports. “I do remember when I decided to come here, he sent me a text right away and said, ‘Welcome, brother. Welcome to the family.’ That was a special moment because at the time, Laker faithful wasn’t [fully in on me]. A lot of people were saying, ‘Well, we might not want LeBron at this point in his career,’ and, ‘Is he right? Is he going to get us back [to the Finals]?’ So to hear from him and get his stamp of approval, it meant a lot. I don’t ever question myself, but when it’s coming from Kobe, it definitely meant a lot.”

“We have to remember not to take life and people for granted,” James added.
But now Jared Dudley has come out with some interesting things. Take a look.
“The team that we had, we’re going to be better next year,” Dudley said.
“When it comes to the money, you think Jeanie Buss is worried about that, man?” he concluded.
This is interesting to see. The Lakers are definitely one of the favorites to win the title next year too. Do you agree?
