Should the Lakers Be Dismissed?

No, the Los Angeles Lakers should not just be dismissed to acquire the 2019-20 NBA championship because they have their own star duo that can match the Clippers in LeBron James and Anthony Davis. (Side note: How insane are Clippers-Lakers games likely to be next season?)
Can it really mean that the Lakers have to attempt now to win the title? Sure, but this will be easier said than done sitting on their hands for many of free agency whilst awaiting Kawhi Leonard’s choice.
The Lake Show’s supporting cast is really a skip fire compared to what the Staples Center roommates can place on the court and unless you will find more veteran buyouts to come on board to the gold and purple (ahem, Andre Iguodala), the reality is that even with LeBron and the Brow, they are simply outgunned.
I would not touch them at +400 to win the title and I don’t feel bad for some of those suckers who took them in +185 with some sportsbooks if it was projected that they were becoming Kawhi too.
