The unlikely lineup of the Lakers considered by an insider
A few days ago, the new coach of the Lakers was the subject of big news concerning his room for maneuver on the bench. According to Jovan Buha, the latter will have the possibility of put Russell Westbrook on the bench late in the game if he wishes. As such, the journalist of The Athletic predicted a much more surprising five for the Angelinos:
Austin Reaves would come here to replace Russell Westbrook, and would bring its versatility. However, his lack of experience could be a problem, as with Troy Brown Jr. and, to a lesser extent, Juan Toscano-Anderson. The lack of flashy names has also made internet users wince, who don’t give much of this association!

If they no longer trust Russell Westbrook in the clutch, the Lakers could then send this unexpected five to the floor. The Brodie would then be entitled to curse in front of the players who would be preferred to him!
