    Anthony Davis got traded to the Lakers. Especially as a Lakers fan, this trade is the most exciting and least excited trade at the same time because we all saw it from a mile away, yet it finally happened. The Lakers traded Anthony Davis for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, the No. 4 pick in this year’s draft, and 2 first rounders. So let’s talk about the Lakers after this trade and how they are a dynasty, but are also risking a lot.

    This was the Lakers plan all along after striking out in free agency last year besides LeBron. They signed players to one year deals. Doing this allowed the Lakers to have about $42 million dollars of cap space for this offseason. This cap space was in preparation for the biggest free agency in NBA history and the Lakers will have their chance to go after free agents after this trade. Picking Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram as trade pieces was also not just talent based. Both Lonzo and Ingram had the highest salaries behind LeBron for 2019 at $8.7 million and $7.2 million dollars so by trading those players along with Josh Hart’s $1.9 million dollar salary helped clear more cap. The Lakers also kept Kuzma who has a $1.9M salary which is lower than both Lonzo and Ingram. This is so much better than the trade offers a few months ago which included Kuzma, but this was only possible because the Lakers pick became the number 4 pick in the draft. Now, that cap space is enough to sign a free agent like Kemba Walker who is eligible for a 4 year $141 million dollar deal or even entice a guy like Jimmy Butler who might take less than what he could get as the max to be with LeBron and AD and also be in LA.

    That gets me to my next point about the dynasty the Lakers have just built, especially if you look at the future. Anthony Davis has said that intends to re-sign long term with the Lakers after this season is over. The Lakers also get Davis’s bird rights from the Pelicans since he was traded and so they can sign him for a 5 year max. That would mean that the Lakers would have AD till he’s 32. Kyle Kuzma is on the third year of his rookie contract with one more year as a team option for the Lakers. He would then also be eligible for a 5 year max with bird rights which would mean more money than any other team could offer to stay in LA. Include a possible free agent signing and you have a superstar, a star, and a guy developing into a star till 2023. That in itself is amazing, adding LeBron in the mix till 2022. I still think LeBron will be amazing this year, especially on offense because he didn’t really slow down besides a weird mishap injury and I think that LeBron and AD will be play well together, but I’ll probably make a more detailed video breaking that down.

    For one, AD hasn’t actually resigned, not yet. We saw a Kyrie Irving who before this season started said he wants to resign with Boston and as the season went on, began to waiver to the point that now he’s a free agent. Well, the Knicks just can’t catch a break. Anthony Davis hasn’t played a single game for the Lakers, nor has he played with LeBron or dealt with the media. There is the possibility that AD just doesn’t like it. Maybe he doesn’t like being in LeBron’s drama filled world, maybe he gets put in LeBron’s shadow as the number 2 option and that bugs him, maybe for some inexplicable reason, the Lakers aren’t good. We don’t know any of that yet and one really bad season could make AD not wanna resign. Now am I saying this is gonna happen? No, this is all a very small possibility, but it’s still a scenario we have seen happen with Kyrie and the Celtics.

    I might even call him injury prone. The good thing is that AD really hasn’t had any major injuries, but he keeps getting these small little injuries that keep him out a game. In 7 seasons, Anthony Davis has failed to play over 70 games 5 times and it’s not due to load management. A lot of times, he gets injured on normal everyday plays. AD on average plays 11 games less than the average All-Star in each season which is out of 82 total games.

    So yeah Anthony Davis got traded to the Lakers, and yeah he’s with LeBron James. There is a dynasty that is on the verge of breaking through with options to only get better from what they have right now, but if and only if AD stays healthy and truly does resign with the Lakers. LeBron and AD together, what a pairing, what a trade, and what a week for the NBA. But what do you think? How far will the Lakers go this season? What are your thoughts about this trade?

      I think they will win 2 championships because LeBron is getting old and probably only has 2 to 3 good years left. Also you never know what injuries , locker problems or super teams that could stop them. But the lakers will be good after LeBron retires.

      Like you said they only have 5 guys right now, plus the second rounder they got. If they spend the money on 3 or 4 quality guys to fill out the roster they could contend in the West. It really depends on where these other FA's end up, but I don't have a lot of faith in the Lakers front office. I think they are going to over pay for one guy and have 0 depth. That will lead to Bron and AD playing heavy minutes in the regular season and the tank could be empty come the second round...

                  this whole thing smells like desperation Laker Nation. Lebron sold the Lakers a used ferrari with a million miles. He is robbing them and holding them back.The Lakers have been SHIT for more than half a decade. They were cap strapped by old Kobe right before his Achilles. They get lucky enough to land mutiple lottery picks and have the golden opportunity to rebuild with a solid young core but they are so desperate to make big headlines they sign multiple low talent veterans to big contracts. That forces them trade away Dangelo for cap space. Then you sign and old lebron with a million miles on his body to max money just like you did with kobe a decade ago. Now you trade away all of your young talent, along with every draft pick you had for a big man with a sub .500 record and consistently misses around 20 games due to injury. Now Boogie is out. Kuz Kardashian hurt his foot.The season hasn't even started and lebrons best laid plans are falling apart. This shit is going to backfire.

                    Even though I am a Giannis fan, I think Davis is really underrated. At age 26 his stats can't even be touched than most players that have retired . He is so talented .2 finals mvp and 1 mvp away from
                    being top 5 pf ever
