Right behind the Big Apple, Los Angeles is the sports mecca of the world. With such a massive market, what four young superstars should head to the Lakers?
The Los Angeles Lakers have had some of the biggest superstars in the history of the NBA. Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal headline an even longer list of superstars. Right now, the superstars are dry, but the team reportedly is looking to bring in at least two stars next offseason.
The range of stars that have been rumored to be tied to Los Angeles is long. Everyone from Russell Westbrook to LeBron James to Paul George to Klay Thompson has been somehow tied to the Lakers. What happens next offseason is still up in the air, as even with two superstars this Lakers team does not look good.
