[Guide] Howard went to Houston, Clark flew to Cleveland, Ci Shiping was driven to New York.
I think Howard’s departure is a pain in the hearts of all the top executives of the Lakers. They thought they had found the core of the new generation, but they miscalculated Kobe’s "selfishness" and mistakenly thought that owning a luxurious F4 would easily win the championship.
It is even more wrong to think Howard’s love for the Lakers.
At the end of the season, Howard slapped his ass and left, leaving behind a lot of mess.
Kobe’s injury, Clark’s departure, and Ci Shiping’s helplessness left the weak Gasol, the old Nash, and a bunch of teammates who were more powerful than anyone else in waving towels off the court.
If someone goes, someone will come. This is an eternal truth, Nick Young, Jordan Farmar, Chris Kaman.
I think the Lakers’ starting lineup for the new season should be Nash, Kobe, Young, Gasol and center Kaman.
This is also the strongest lineup they can send, of course, the premise is that Kobe can recover and return.
The aging Nash can no longer defend most of the backcourt, and the frontcourt of Gasol and Kaman may not get an extra rebound. As for the two singles champions, no one knows which one has more points.
It’s no wonder ESPN ranks the Los Angeles Lakers 12th in the Western Conference for the new season, so the new season will be the most difficult season for the Lakers led by Kobe.
Of course, no matter what, these can only remain at the stage of speculation. We look forward to the strong comeback of the Black Mamba to give speculation a resounding slap.
