Should the Lakers Be Dismissed?

No, the Los Angeles Lakers should not just be dismissed to win against the 2019-20 NBA championship since they have their own star duo that can match the Clippers at LeBron James and Anthony Davis. (Side note: How insane are Clippers-Lakers games going to be next year?)
Will it really mean the Lakers have to attempt now to acquire the title? Sure, but that may be easier said than done after sitting on their hands for many of free agency while awaiting Kawhi Leonard’s choice.
The Lake Show’s supporting cast is really a skip fire in comparison to what the Staples Center roommates can put on the court and unless you will find far more veteran buyouts to come on board to the purple and gold (ahem, Andre Iguodala), the reality is that even with LeBron and the Brow, they’re just outgunned.
I would not touch them right now at +400 to win the title and I really don’t feel bad for any of those suckers who took them in +185 with some sportsbooks when it was projected they were getting Kawhi too.
