One of the most successful and well-known NBA franchises in the league is the Los Angeles Lakers. The franchise is coming off somewhat of a rough patch after missing out on the last five playoffs series. However, with LeBron James and Anthony Davis teaming up, the Lakers have a massive chance of returning to the top this upcoming season.
New Laker guard Troy Daniels believes that the franchise is not only the best team in Hollywood to watch but also the biggest team in the entire United State of America.
In an interview with Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype, Daniels explained that he believed that the Lakers are truly “America’s Team.”
“I call them “America’s Team” because everyone knows about the Los Angeles Lakers and everyone knows about Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James. When you come play for this organization, you got to come correct. That’s what I’m going to do.”
The Lakers have made some serious moves this offseason, along with adding Anthony Davis, the franchise also signed DeMarcus Cousins, Danny Green and Troy Daniels himself.
They may be a serious contender for the championship this season but one team that may challenge them for that title is their cross-town rivals, the Los Angeles Clippers. The reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard decided to leave the Raptors and team-up with Paul George, the move has turned the Clippers into another championship contender.
The future of basketball in Los Angeles is in great hands and it will surely be exciting when the two teams meet this season.
