The Los Angeles Lakers were by far the biggest movers and shakers of the NBA out of season. After years of planning, their hard work and planning have finally been rewarded. LeBron James is now a Laker. He has brought along an eclectic group of supporting pieces that will be combined with the youth already in the team to give the Lakers one of the most interesting rosters in the entire basketball. But now the outdoor season is over. The moves are made. The selection is largely made. It is time for the new look of Lakers to take the floor and show this talent.
The question that came up in the season was how the Lakers would end up juggling all these similar skillful players. They have more guards and wings than they know what to do with them, but in the center they have very little in terms of size. They do not yet have an identity as a team and building up starts by finding out who deserves to be on the floor. The preseason can do a great job with that, even with a few of the best players in the team that are. The Lakers are LeBron James, Josh Hart, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram. The Golden State Warriors are already rolling out their best players. Here are the players who have decided both parties to start the pre-season game tonight.
