Until recently, the chances of the LA Lakers making the playoffs were virtually zero.
However, after the trade close, the situation changed drastically. The prospect of the Lakers advancing to the playoffs is continuing.
Even former Lakers Nick Young said, “If the Lakers make the playoffs, they’ll beat the #1 seed Denver Nuggets.”
The Lakers matched Denver with 2 wins and 2 losses this season. One of those losses was without LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
The Lakers currently sit in 13th place, third from the bottom of the 15 teams in the Western Conference.
However, the game difference between the 10th place New Orleans Pelicans, which is the final line of the play-in tournament, is only 1.5. Even the game difference with sixth place Dallas Mavericks is only 3.5 games. 슬롯사이트
The remaining matches are 22 games, which can be overturned at any time.
Why do these views emerge?
It is because Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverly, who had been a headache, were cleaned up and Russell D’Angelo, Vanderbilt, Mo Bamba, and Rui Hachimura were recruited.
LA Times columnist Bill Flashke, who is a ‘bitter’, also said that the Lakers suddenly became a team competing for the playoffs after Westbrook and Beverly left.
Attention is focusing on whether the Lakers will continue the reversed atmosphere.
