The Los Angeles Lakers are living very complex hours after LeBron James went down with a high right ankle injury Saturday afternoon. The purple and gold were already struggling without Anthony Davis and now the picture looks even worse for them.
James is expected to miss at least six weeks with his injury and the Lakers need to find the solution for this problem. Hopefully, they have a roster full of good players that will give their best to take the team to the postseason while James and Davis are inactive. Moreover, one fan dared to predict who's going to take the reins of the team now that their two biggest figures are out.
The fate of the Los Angeles Lakers is in the hands of one man," The Sports Guy wrote on Twitter with a picture of Kyle Kuzma showing off his clothes in front of a mirror.
The tweet blew and a lot of people reacted to it, making jokes about Kuzma and the job he needs to do now that LBJ and AD are out. Kuz was actually expected to be the third-best player on the Lakers last season and he mightily failed. This season he has become a very reliable player for the team but the challenge will be harder now.
He even addressed this situation last week and said that everybody must step up while the two stars are out and the Lakers are ready to take care of things. It's still early to see if they will survive without Bron and Davis but they need to if they want to have a chance in the postseason.
