NBA Analyst Says Lakers Will 1000% Win A Title If They Create A Big 3 With Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, And Anthony Davis

NBA Insider Says The Lakers Should Wait Until The Summer To Make A Move For Kyrie Irving

LeBron James' decision to sign a contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers has given new hope to fans of the franchise. For the last few weeks, the rumors around the league suggested that James was waiting for the organization to make a big move to improve the team, and then he'd sign a contract extension.

Now, a move of that caliber is yet to happen for the Lakers this offseason. If anything, it seems the Lakers' pursuit of star point guard Kyrie Irving has ended as well. The Purple and Gold have been in talks to trade Russell Westbrook, and draft picks for Kyrie. However, the Nets haven't accepted any offer from the team yet.

But what if somehow this deal gets completed? Will this be enough for the L.A. Lakers to win an NBA Championship? Well, NBA analyst Jay Williams believes if the Lakers can acquire Kyrie via trade, there will 1000% win the NBA Championship.

"I don't know if they're willing to offer enough for Irving. That comes down to them offering more than one draft pick for Kyrie Irving when they're already slated - not having a lot of draft picks to offer. So, if I'm Jeanie Buss, I still go all in to get Lebron James another championship.

Yes. Well, depends on what you have to give up but ff you're putting Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis and LeBron James on the same team, yes, you could win a world championship with those three. Depending upon who you've added to your bench and depth, by having those three players as core, 1000% you can win a world championship."

Having a Big 3 of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Kyrie Irving definitely sounds scary and good enough to win the NBA Championship. But the biggest issue would be if the trio can manage its fitness.

In the 2021-22 NBA season, we saw the Lakers had a Big 3 of LBJ, AD, and Westbrook. Unfortunately, the three players played just a handful of games together. On top of that, Russ never managed to get adjusted to his new team.
