Rob Parker: “Any thought or idea that the Lakers were going to repeat just went out the window. It’s bad enough not having Anthony Davis, but now LeBron for potentially a month – and even when he gets back you don’t know where he is at 36 years old, totally different animal. I know he’s had a history of being able to come back quicker than normal but as you get older those things don’t happen. Anthony Davis has been out a lot, and this team isn’t the same team as when they had Rondo, Dwight Howard, and Javale McGee. I don’t think this team is better than that team. Now you’re asking for two stars to come back, them to be OK after not playing for a while, and there’s just too many things that have to go right for them to compete. The West is tough and it’s not a cakewalk. Their championship aspirations are DONE, they will NOT get out of the West, and they will NOT compete for a championship.” (Full Video Above)
