It may come as no surprise to know that the Lakers have quickly become one of the most dysfunctional organizations in the NBA. Former basketball player and current television analyst, Jay Williams has gone as far as to describe the team as “the best reality show on TV.”
“I think I’m finally ready to say it. The Lakers are the Kardashians of the NBA,” he said. “A good friend gave me some advice – no matter how bad you want to hook up with them, don’t do it. Don’t do it.”
It seems more and more that the Lakers are focusing on off-court issues more than basketball itself. From Magic Johnson’s sudden resignation to the Lakers’ failed attempt to sign former Cavaliers coach, Tyronn Lue, it will be interesting to see what their next move is.
The Lakers have the fourth overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, so their moves for the future will also depend on their new prospect.
