Bleacher Report recently predicted how many future Hall of Famers are on each team. For the Lakers, they had the most in the league.

As the Los Angeles Lakers prepare for the season to resume in Orlando, Bleacher Report recently did an article about how many future Hall of Famers are on each team currently.

For the Lakers, they came in with the most locks in the league to make the Hall of Fame, as LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Dwight Howard were all named as locks.

Starting with LeBron is an easy decision. He is one of the best basketball players we have ever seen and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Even if James never picked up another basketball in his life, he will certainly be in the Hall of Fame.

The real question with LeBron is how many records can he break before he enters the Hall of Fame. After seeing what he did this season for the Lakers, the possibilities seem endless for LeBron.

The next lock for the Hall of Fame named by Bleacher Report was Anthony Davis. Even though Davis is just 27 years old, he is one of the best players in the league and has some nice accolades to his name already.

Davis is a seven-time All-Star already and one of the best two-way big men in the league. Davis is a walking double-double for the Lakers, and a true superstar in the league today. While Davis does have a lot of individual stats and accolades, he hasn’t won anything in the NBA just yet. However, with LeBron as his teammate, this year presents him with a good chance to do so.

The third player on the Lakers who is a lock for the Hall of Fame is one that some might forget about it. While Dwight Howard is in a different stage of his career now, he was one of the best big men in the league for quite some time.

Howard is an 8-time All-Star, 3-time Defensive Player of the Year, 8-time All-NBA, and 5-time All-Defensive Team. With mostly the Magic, Howard was a beast and one of the best during that time.

Even though Howard might not be that same player, he is still a productive player for the Lakers and has been a key part to the team this season. While his prime might have been a few years ago, there is no taking away from what Howard accomplished early in his career.
