Anthony Davis frustrated with ‘what we could have been’ in Lakers struggles

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis still has hope of making the playoffs, but he’s frustrated with “what we could have been” this season.

The Lakers pulled together a big three in Los Angeles that season, pairing LeBron James and Anthony Davis with Russell Westbrook.

It should have created a lineup capable of challenging in the Western Conference. Instead, Los Angeles risks missing the playoffs as a difficult season comes to an end.

While Westbrook has started 76 games, James has played 56 while Davis has only played 38. The three stars have all played together just 21 times.

Anthony Davis is frustrated with what the Lakers trio could have been

For Davis, the most frustrating part is knowing how different this season could have been had they all been healthy together.

“We didn’t expect to only have 21 games together, but it was kind of this year,” Davis said.

LA has four games left and is two games behind the Spurs. They have to do everything right if they want to earn a spot in the play-in games.

Regardless of whether or not they make the playoffs, the Lakers must decide whether to continue this experiment.

Westbrook has a player option in his contract. James and Davis both have contracts for next season. If they really want to see what they could have been, the trio could return for another try.

However, the clock on James’ career is ticking while Westbrook, who is bearing the brunt of the criticism of LA’s struggles, could leave him looking for a way out.
