The Lakers again failed to win an opening night victory in the LeBron James era after losing the Warriors last night. Lebron and Anthony Davis played really well, but no one else showed up.That includes Russell Westbrook is had a very subpar first game as a Laker. It will be a struggle for the Lakers because they have a lot of big-name players who may be past their prime. Russ had a strong ending last season, so the hope is that he will figure it out when it matters most in the playoffs. If it doesn’t, then that is a lot of responsibility on Anthony Davis and LeBron. Davis is brittle, and LeBron is in season 19. They are fresh at the moment, but what happens as the season gets longer and the grind gets harder. You can tell that Kuzma is still hurt by the fact they traded him and others for Russ.
