The absences of LeBron James and Anthony Davis are very sensitive for the Los Angeles Lakers, who are obviously struggling without their two best players on the court for the next couple of weeks. While the Brooklyn Nets keep getting better and better, the purple and gold keep struggling without their two stars.
Although Davis seems to be closer to a return than LeBron, they still need to wait before watching their dynamic duo back in action, which will be a big problem for the 2020 NBA champions and their aspirations to make the postseason this campaign.
NBA fans have started to joke about them and their struggles and NBA Memes used an old photo from the worst years they lived during the 2010s. At some point, they had a starting lineup of Ryan Kelly, Jordan Hill, Robert Sacre, Wayne Ellington, and a young Jordan Clarkson, who blossomed into a great player after leaving the purple and gold.
They ended their four-game losing streak with a 100-86 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night and will try to win back-to-back matches with a victory over the Orlando Magic, a team that lost their best players on the trade deadline.
The Lakers lived very tough years in the past decade but things changed last year, where they won the title after a 10-year drought. However, they don’t have their best players right now and that will certainly hurt their chances to finish the season the best way.
