The current Los Angeles Lakers are setting one of the worst records the fanbase has ever seen in the 2021-22 regular season, even as they are led by the questionable GOAT. Many analysts think LeBron James could be on the way out. In the same note, Fox Sports analyst Nick Wright has suggested that the purple and gold should consider blowing up the entire roster and building the team from scratch.
Currently sitting in the 11thth Western Conference berth, the Lakers have no respite and face Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets in their remaining games. With the San Antonio Spurs New Orleans Pelicans having relatively easier games, many firmly believe the Lakers would not make it into the postseason.

Nick Wright suggests Lakers open trade doors to Anthony Davis
Nick Wright believes that if LeBron James requests a trade, it would be in the franchise’s best interest that they also include Anthony Davis. He spoke on the program “First things first”, “If LeBron wants out, and I think Anthony (Davis) showed us how great he can be as the best man on the team, there’s a cap there. So if you’re trading LeBron, rip it down on the cleats and trade AD as well.
he continued “But if they keep LeBron, it would be categorically insane to trade Anthony Davis for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and four first-round picks from Oklahoma City… As long as you have LeBron, don’t plan for 2025 or 2026, which is what you’re planning for.”
Put more simply, what Wright is implying is that AD cannot be the marquee star that a team should and could be built around. He gets injured far too often and such scenarios can never let the team rest, especially in clutch situations.
Wright concluded by stating that trading with Davis would be a mistake if James plans to stay as there is no other trading scenario that would guarantee Purple and Gold a championship in the near future. With all the speculation in the air, the coming matchdays are super important for Frank Vogel’s team. Will they be able to storm their way into the postseason? Remains to be seen.
