Default Expectations for the lakers?

How well do you expect them to do? A bunch of misfits and has-beens on the same team.

2018-19 = 7th seed, 1st round exit ( no big free agent signing )
2019-20 = 6th seed, 2nd round exit ( sign ingram to max extension )
2020-21 = 8th seed, 1st round exit ( let lonzo walk )
2021-22 = miss playoffs

49-wins in regular season.. Seeds them somewhere in between 3 and 6
2nd round exit in playoffs, depends on whether we play Rockets or GSW. I don't think Lakers can beat the Rockets, but it would be interesting to see regardless.

More than reasonable expectations barring major injuries.

At least 20 locker room fights. 2 trades because somebody is going to complain about playing time. LeBron telling Magic to ban LaVar Ball from all games until he either gets with the program or grows the F*&k up. Oh and 45 wins.

yeah so?.. thats how it is in the west without an allstar sidekick.. im not makijg fun of lebron. just giving his fans a dose of reality since all they ever preach is about how lebron can carry any team to the finals and last years cavs were soup cans/love was trash etc...


its all a false narrative and lebron cant take 1 other allstar to a title like kobe has

Lakers won 35 games with Lonzo and Ingram missing a combined 47 games, add several missed games by KCP and Kuzma...After one year experience, these youngsters along with McGhee, Lance and Rondo should be enough to carry Lebron huge backside to 49 wins

Because Randle/Brook carried the load while Ingram/Lonzo where in nursery day care

They're gone now

Their rotation is 90% new with 2-3 different starters
