James Harden’s arrival in Brooklyn has put the Lakers on alarm. Although the Nets were a threat to Durant and Irving, now with a true Big Three they have become probably the most qualified rival for the fight for the title against the established power of the Lakers. So the champions are already devising strategies to reinforce themselves and the latest is the rumor that runs through Los Angeles involving Zach LaVine and several yellow players.
Lavine is the best news for some Bulls who live in mediocrity. The shooting guard averages 28.3 points per game and is on the radar of many contenders. In the Lakers too. For some experts, the operation would be a win-to-win that is, everyone would be a winner. The Lakers because they would ensure a ‘killer’ to their squad and could dream of a Dynasty. And the Bulls because with LaVine alone, they are not even able to enter the Playoffs and in the exchange, they could get important pieces for the future.
And for Lavine himself, since playing alongside Lebron would do nothing but improve his enormous benefits. But this operation would be of great scope and, those who understand, already know the very high price that the Lakers would have to pay. The champions would host LaVine to fight Brooklyn’s ‘Big Three’ and in return would have to give up a lot of assets: Kyle Kuzma, Talen Horton-Tucker, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alex Caruso, and a 2027 first-round pick.
It is clear that in the current landscape the Lakers are still favorites. The presence of Anthony Davis And LeBron James ensures the team’s competitiveness. And the Lakers were reinforced well with players like Montrezl Harrell and Dennis Schroder. However, a player like LaVine equips the champions with a weapon of mass destruction and the Dynasty would be almost assured.
