Do you think the Lakers will ever recover and be elite again
Do you think the Lakers will ever recover from their current state and be contenders again in the near future? By near future I mean 8-10 years. So will they be contenders again anytime before 2023?
Most would assume yes just cause its the Lakers, but im not so sure. Jim Buss has shown the world what a moron he really is, and how he is NOT his dad. The Lakers for some reason love Dantoni and refuse to part ways with him. All their recent championships 00- present are in some ways have correlations with Jerry West. He brought Shaq, Phil Jackson, and Kobe to LA, the 3 men most responsible for the Lakers 2000s success. Now I have my doubts the current Lakers management can build a title team from scratch. I don't care if they are a big market, that hasn't helped the Knicks become elite since the post Ewing era, and it won't help the Lakers either.
