Analyst Says 1 NBA Team Is ‘In Trouble’

Ahead of the NBA trade deadline earlier this month, the Los Angeles Lakers looked like a team that was destined to make a significant move in order to set themselves up for a strong finish to the NBA regular season.

All signs pointed to the Lakers acquiring star guard Dejounte Murray of the Atlanta Hawks, but the trade deadline came and went without the Lakers making a move, even if it was a small one.

Ultimately, the Lakers took to the buyout market to add to their roster, with the team signing veteran guard and Los Angeles native Spencer Dinwiddie, which seemed like it was a smart move by general manager Rob Pelinka.

Unfortunately for Los Angeles, Dinwiddie hasn’t done anything to move the needle in the five games he’s played for the Lakers, as he’s struggled to find his place on this team and has provided nothing off the bench for this squad.

After a loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, the Lakers couldn’t contend with Kevin Durant and company, as they lost on the road and created more questions than answers, which Emmanuel Acho of FOX Sports alluded to on Speak On FS1.

With so many talented teams in the Western Conference, the Lakers don’t look like a team that can contend right now, as it could be a disappointing end to the season.

Along with more than likely having to go through the Play-In Tournament once again, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Oklahoma City Thunder, Denver Nuggets, and Los Angeles Clippers will be better teams in a seven-game series, meaning this year will inevitably end for the Lakers without a title once again.
