Lakers’ Michael Beasley Vows Team Will Come Together

Published

The newest free agent addition to the Los Angeles Lakers, Michael Beasley, says that doesn’t like the idea of people judging them on their personas or reputations, believing that the team will come together.

“I think it is going to come together like a basketball team,” Beasley said, according to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “You got [14] guys other than LeBron James that know how to play basketball, and I think you got 29 teams that [are] overlooking the fact that they know how to play basketball.”

It’s been a busy offseason for the Lakers who added James, Beasley, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee.

“For there to even be a narrative of the personalities in this room is judgment enough for me, and I don’t want to be a part of that,” Beasley said.

“You being a critic doing your job, [if] everybody do their job and stop judging a lot of players — me mainly — you will figure out that guys like me, Nick YoungJR Smith and Lance Stephenson and guys like that know how to play basketball and win basketball games, know how to get along with others. It is nothing to do with my maturity.”

Beasley, who is coming off a bounce back season with the New York Knicks, where he posted 13.2 points and 5.6 rebounds last season, plans to fit in by just being himself.

“Just be myself,” Beasley said. “I come in here and try to help the young guys and put the ball in the basket.”

“Use my abilities, don’t be shy about being myself.”

Per the report, the Lakers have privately been concerned about James’ health following a career-long absence, due to a groin injury he sustained back on Christmas Day in a game against the Golden State Warriors.

James’ play has left the Lakers “a little concerned” for his well-being.

My love for the city was nothing that I could explain over a tweet, THE LOVE EXTENDS BEYOND! @DetroitPistons thanks for a Lifetime MEMORY! Made me who I am today 🙏— Reggie Bullock (@ReggieBullock35) February 6, 2019

Suns Interested in Being 3rd Teal in Lakers, Pelicans Trade

Published

The Los Angeles Lakers have some help in their pursuit of New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar big man Anthony Davis.

Their division rival, the Phoenix Suns.

According to the Los Angeles Times’ Tania Ganguli and Broderick Turner, the Suns have reached out to both the Lakers and the Pelicans and made it clear that they are interested in joining the trade as a third team.

The Suns have their eyes on Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball, who would be a great fit for the young Suns.

It’s not clear what the Suns could offer outside of their 2019 first round pick, which I assume is completely off the table, but they do have other draft picks and young players such as Dragan Bender, to throw into the fray.

Lonzo’s father, LaVar, ruined the appeal of Lonzo for the Pelicans, after he made comments about his desire to see Lonzo in Phoenix instead, recently.

According to Fletcher Mackel of WDSU, the Pelicans “want no part of the Ball circus.”

This would make the inclusion of the Suns in trade talks beneficial, as it gets Ball a clear landing spot, and provides the Lakers with more assets to offer New Orleans.
