The Los Angeles Lakers finally did it. Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, NBA Draft 2019's No. 4 pick, a first-class pick of choice in 2021, an unprotected choice trade in 2023 and another first-wheel-drive that will air in 2024 or 2025.
Okay, so maybe it cost them a bit of money to bring Davis to his favorite shopping destination and bring him to LeBron James. But for what it's worth, after whispering and being asked about James 'joy with the Lakers' status following the team all season off, he made it clear on Instagram that He was delighted with the evolution of the situation. is "just the beginning" for the team:
Also happy with the cataclysmic change that took place on Saturday? Hart and Ingram, whose last posted a smiling emoji on Instagram following the deal, while the former just gave his best impression of the same emoji. Phenomenal social synergy of new pelicans:
Meanwhile, Kyle Kuzma, the last man of the young Lakers core – unless you, like my fiancee, Earl Moe Wagner in this group – began to summarize his feelings on social networks with what appeared to be a small search for anyone who wanted to see him among the players sent for Davis:
He then shared the impact of the trade on his day, while making himself known by his star, his next teammate:
Finally, Kuz went to Instagram to remember the fallen soldiers, exiled to the Bayou, so that the dreams of championship Lakers can be realized. Never forget:
Kuzma's Instagram activity sums up the dominant feeling of the afternoon for the Lakers. It was probably a great day for the team, but fans can be forgiven if they feel a little bit sweet and bitter at the same time.
Getting Davis is a blow for the Lakers, who needed a win after winning so many Ls in the past year, but gave up on three other young players in which the fanbase had invested emotionally and had grown after several years the age of 25 with any level of talent probably stings a bit, like burning vodka before having the good feeling of coming after. Now, it's up to the Lakers to make sure that the advantage is finally won – starting by taking advantage of their hood this summer – or all this celebration about an impending superteam will leave fans all the hangover .
