The Lakers this year have been nothing short of a major disappointment. The only thing they accomplished was waste one year of Lebron’s four-year deal. He is not getting younger and their window with him closes every year they disappoint. They had to deal with many injuries , most notably Lebron who missed the most games of his career. Lonzo ball got injured in january and will miss the rest of the season. Brandon Ingram will be shut down due to his arm. The other big mistake was trying to trade most of the team for Anthony Davis before the trade deadline very publicly and not doing it. My guess is that the players they tried to trade got mad at management and didn’t try their hardest after the rumors surfaces and they didn’t get traded.

The NBA MVP race has been an interesting one. The current top three candidates are Paul George, James Harden, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis is the current favorite as he leads he Bucks in everything and they are the top of the eastern conference. James Harden has ben a scoring machine this season, no team can seem to stop him from scoring at least 25+ per game. The surprise has been Paul George’s play, he is the best player currently on the Thunder and the Thunder are playing well this year. My pick is Giannis and I can’t really see anyway he doesn’t win the award with the way he has been playing this season.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Shoots Down Idea Of Leaving Bucks To Chase Title With Lakers
This NBA rookie class has been stacked from top to bottom. There are a ton of potential stars from the top of draft, Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley 3, Jaren Jackson Jr, Trae Young and Luka doncic. The best this year has been Luka Doncic, and in my opinion he is the clear rookie of the year favorite. Trae Young has been on fire as of late putting up monster scoring numbers since the all-star break. Ayton is averaging a double-double and has under-the-radar been balling all season. Bagley and Jackson look like above average to all-star big men. The biggest steal has been Mitchell Robinson. He was the 33rd pick and is averaging a high amount of blocks even though he does not play as much as he should. Allonzo trier of the Knicks, he was undrafted and is also putting up numbers not typical of an undrafted rookie. Like said earlier the clear winner of Rookie of the Year is Luka Doncic, he has been playing at an all-star level the entire season and he will only get better.
