The Lakers won a couple of games. They’re fighting for pride, trying to prove they’re not the worst Laker team in history. They aren’t, but basketball fans will always point to the win-loss record and use that as the argument.
The 2014 has circled around the top 5 draft picks. All year, it has been some combination of Andrew Wiggins, Dante Exum, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid, and Julius Randle, and deservedly so. Some may be concerned that the Laker team won’t strike it big in the upcoming draft with the latest set of wins.
Still, the later picks are still high quality picks.
