The Los Angeles Lakers had another gruesome week. They went 1-2 last week, the one win coming on Sunday against the Phoenix Suns. Good news and bad news for the Lakers. The good news was that Rajon Rondo returned to action; however, Kyle Kuzma did not play on Thursday or Sunday due to a hip injury.
As the All-Star weekend approaches, I wanted to tell you which players deserve to be in the All-Star game who didn’t get the votes they should have. I will select one player from the Western Conference and one player from the Eastern Conference and want to hear who you guys think deserves an All-Star spot that is not getting the votes they should be getting.
D’Angelo Russell was drafted in 2015 by the Los Angeles Lakers as the 2nd overall pick in the draft. Russell came into the league with high hopes of being the next star point guard for the Lakers. He had the capability of being the next star point guard for the Lakers too, but his stint with the Lakers, unfortunately, didn’t last long.
The Los Angeles Lakers started last week off on a strong note, defeating the Mavericks in Dallas, 107-97. Then they defeated the Detroit Pistons in LA, 113-100, with Kyle Kuzma scoring 41 points in 29 minutes. They hit a roadblock in Utah, losing that game, 113-95. On Sunday night, they hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers; this game should have been a win, but the Lakers lost this game, 101-95. They finished the week off with a 2-2 record. It should’ve very well been a 3-1 record after taking care of business in Dallas and against the Pistons.
The Los Angeles Chargers will visit Foxborough for a meeting against the New England Patriots. Philip Rivers and Tom Brady will meet once again, this possibly being the last time they meet in their career. Tom Brady has had Philip Rivers’ number so far, with a 7-0 record. But, this game could have a different outcome.
