It’s what Lakers fans have been waiting for, finally the franchise has found a big named star to play alongside LeBron James in an attempt to make a run for the 2020 championship. Many now believe that the Los Angeles Lakers have the talent and roster to win at least one championship in the next couple of years and maybe more.
The Lakers have been one of the most successful clubs in the history of the league, they currently have the second most championships behind the Boston Celtics. Some of the best players of all time have played for the franchise including LeBron, if the four-time MVP was able to win multiple championships in L.A, the question will be asked about where he sits amongst the greatest Lakers of all time.
On ESPN’s First Take, Shaquille O’Neal, a Laker legend himself, believes that LeBron James will be worth enough to be apart of the Lakers Mount Rushmore if he can win multiple championships in a row for the franchise.
“For one champion, can’t do that, can’t do that, Not for one, if he wins three in a row, yes.” Said Shaq in response to Ryan Holland. “And listen, LeBron’s my guy and LeBron would probably say the same thing, you just can’t be on the list by winning one, if he gets three in a row, Definitely.”
It truly would be a massive accomplishment if LeBron was able to pull off a three-peat with Davis for the Lakers considering that he’s coming to the back end of his career. The Los Angeles Lakers decision to bring Davis into the team was a decision they believed would help the franchise bring home a championship before the end of James’ career.
Unfortunately, we just have to wait and see if the decision will pay off but it sure will be intriguing to see how this all plays out.
