Lakers Slammed With Truth Bomb on All-Star’s Grim Future

The Los Angeles Lakers may get more than one truth bomb this offseason. The team is coming off of a disappointing season and the front office will have to do a lot in the next few months. There has been growing speculation about Rob Pelinka’s first move. Oh, we already saw it happen. The Lakers fired Frank Vogel and did serious of interviews to find his replacement. Darvin Ham joins the purple and gold as the next head coach. This is his first head coaching experience and Lakers fans are hyped about his potential.

What about the roster? Pelinka signed a bunch of veterans last offseason. He gathered a group of experienced players who were looking forward to getting a ring. LeBron James came to Los Angeles to win rings and he got one.

The Lakers struggled with injuries. Some of the newly-signed players didn’t even get a chance to play. LeBron and Anthony Davis missed a big chunk of the season and LA was eliminated from the playoff race.

Yes, AD.

Lakers to handle this truth bomb with “caution”

Davis played just 76 games in the last couple of seasons. The Lakers traded a bunch of players to get Davis. Yes, he led the Lakers to a title, but he is missing too much time due to injuries.

Keith Smith of Spotrac made some shocking comments about Davis and his role on the roster. According to him, Davis is no longet in his prime.

“There’s also been some buzz that the Lakers should consider moving Anthony Davis. While unlikely, the idea isn’t entirely meritless. Davis has appeared in just 76 games over the past two seasons, as he’s dealt with a variety of injuries. His play was better last season than in the season before, but Davis may be on the downswing of his career. He’ll be 30 towards the end of next season and his days of appearing in more than 60-65 games are probably over,” Smith wrote in a recent article.

Davis may turn into a major problem for the Lakers. If he is unable to play the role he was given, the Lakers will lose too much money on someone who doesn’t suit up for important games.

When healthy, the big man is one of the better players in the league. This past season he was averaging 23.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game while going 53.2% from the field. These numbers are great, but Davis has to get healthier and stronger than before.
