The Lakers have been particularly disappointing this season, and yet they still receive the attention of many league stars… While on ESPN, a big name, and a rival of LeBron James, did not hesitate to hit the Purple and Gold!
The Lakers have their work cut out for them if they want to get back to the top next season… It must be said that LeBron James is already 37 years old, and although he may be an extraordinary athlete, he may take care of his body, he will not be able to continue forever. He only has a few seasons left to land a new ring and get closer to Michael Jordanwhich obviously adds additional pressure on the leaders.
The problem is that after such a complicated year, with rather distressing sporting performances on certain points, and in particular defensively, several potential targets could decide to commit elsewhere, in teams that are much more coherent and ready for the top. level. Then it will also be difficult to set up exchanges, especially with the huge contracts of Russell Westbrook and Talen Horton-Tucker.
Patrick Beverley hits the Lakers!
Fortunately for them, the Lakers should be able to rely on two elements to rebuild quickly: the franchise is perhaps the most prestigious in the league, and all players dream of evolving with LeBron. Moreover, passing through ESPN this Thursday, Patrick Beverley made a huge foot call to the Purple and Gold and the King. He may love the Clippers, the leader would see himself changing sides.

Patrick Beverley on the superstar he would like to play with: “Bron, easy. »
Patrick Beverley may have spent 4 exceptional seasons with the Clippers, where he really exploded, he could obviously be tempted by the Lakers if it offered him the possibility of evolving with LeBron James… The question should not, whatever happens. ask, since he has just extended with the Timberwolves, a franchise he has managed to put back on track. And then, he likes to provoke the King too much to join him.
Up 20 on the Lakers in the 2nd half, Patrick Beverley made sure to go up to LeBron James, flexed on him & talked trash! 😂😳

Patrick Beverley could answer many problems at the Lakers, especially defensively. Where Russell Westbrook is all too often overwhelmed, holds his own and outsmarts his opponents with spicy trash-talking.
