The Los Angeles Lakers endured one of the worst seasons in franchise history in 2021-22. From championship favorites to being kicked out of the postseason, LeBron James and company suffered greatly. Additionally, there were some players who experienced some of their worst seasons, including Kent Bazemore.
Additionally, King James may have hilariously insulted the injury by driving him off during a recent Lakers contest and then ignoring it. Check out the video below to know exactly what we’re talking about.

What’s next for Kent Bazemore?
Prior to the start of the season, Kent Bazemore had reportedly turned down a contract with the Golden State Warriors for more money and years compared to the minimum for a one-year veteran he signed with the Lakers. You wonder why and what reason was it? He considered Los Angeles a legitimate title contender, where he would be cast in a “leading role,” according to Mark Medina.
As bad as Bazemore’s decision was, the Warriors will go into the postseason with home field advantage, while the Lakers won’t even make it through the postseason. Even worse is the fact that Bazemore’s role has been severely curtailed despite playing on a worse team. He has played in just 39 games and averaged 3.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists.
Additionally, Bazemore wasn’t even used in a multitude of games where he could have made a difference due to the rigid roster of Frank Vogel and other members of the coaching staff. But since “letting go” is a common phrase for the purple and gold army, many players from their roster would try to move off the mainframe to find their rhythm.
Aside from that, the Lakers will also look to rebuild their team around LeBron James as his current contract sees him through the end of the 2022-23 season with the iconic franchise. With only one game left before they leave the 2021-22 Basketfest, Bazemore could hopefully step out against Denver Nuggets for a highlight.
