There is no way, the irregularity remains in Los angeles lakers and the defeats accumulate, but the worst are the bad feelings. The loss to Knicks reveals Russell Westbrook’s absolute inability to lead this team with solidity and continuity, trusting his good performance to outbursts of pure talent and physical exuberance like the one he did in the second half, which allowed the Angelenos to dream with the comeback. Anthony Davis Nor does he end up being a born leader and reflects on his feelings at the collective level in words collected by ESPN, after the franchise already has a negative balance of 9-10 and the alarms go off by the absolute dependence on Lebron James.

I think this is all part of the acclimatization process, but we are working it out. It brings us a tremendous competitive spirit and that’s something. basic when Lebron is not there, “said the coach of a team that presents really poor statistics in many respects, which is a true reflection of the reason why they are in serious trouble at the qualifying level.
