    Lakers maybe make the 8th spot. Swept or maybe win one game in round 1. AD has only played 60+ gm.s in a season once. Lebron will need lots of Kawhi time . The third 'super star' they need will wipe out any serious bench prospects and even if its Kawhi they will struggle because none of them can play every game and their back ups will be a bunch of spares. The Mavericks beat OKC with westbrook, KD and Harden then beat Miami w/ a prime Lebron, Bosch and Wade . Neither team had a bench that could run with Dallas and the Mavericks ran them to death in 6 games. They were done if you watch that 6th game over. Same thing will happen this year. If Lebron or AD goes down for any significant time they don t make the play offs. I cant wait to see the Pel.s upset them and Zion run Lebron to death one on one. I think the Mavericks land both Kemba and Deandre Jordan back and theyre the team that takes the spot in the west and not LA. I said LA wouldnt make the post season last year and that Luka would be an allstar and people were laughing at me. Im saying now Luka is going to throw up harden like stats when Lebron is 'resting' out games and be a more significant player in the league next year.

    The Lakers build a championship team with LeBron and AD and I think two other superstars should be signed as a free agent and I think those two players should be Nikola Jokić as their starting center and either Paul George or LeBron’s old teammate back in Cleveland Kyrie Irving as their starting Point Guard and I think they should trade Moritz Wagner and Isaac Bonga to the Phoenix Suns but I according to my sources I think that Wagner and Bonga will have no playing time with the Suns and will be brought to the G-League and I think that the Lakers might be playing one of their playoffs series against Zion Williamson and the Pelicans.

    Okay let me tell ya'll something the Lakers are getting to the Finals but look the Pelicans are going to get into the Playoffs they got Williamson, Ball, Rondo, They even got Julius and he had a great season but they definitely going to get into the Playoffs because it's not no little kids over their Williamson ain't no little kid he a big dog he the next big thing just watch he gone be something special. Next ya'll gone see me with a Marshall jersey on the Lakers man, if ya'll don't know my real name is Quavious Marshall. But all the people that got traded from the Lakers gone have to eat a lot of Gumbo.
