With 3 defeats in a row and a slightly more complicated period, the Lakers intend to reverse the trend in the coming weeks. But some supporters are more worried about the long term, even hoping for a trade.
Despite an already full infirmary, the Lakers are hopeful of rectifying the situation in the coming days after an initial period of turbulence. Darvin Ham’s men have lost 3 games in a row and Anthony Davis is currently in the infirmary, although his return is imminent. We found the supporters more confident for the future, in particular because of a squad that was not so balanced.
A new profile targeted by the Lakers?
Austin Reaves and D’Angelo Russell show their limits in the backcourt, with an attack at half mast and a defense that is sometimes more than doubtful on certain possessions. An improvement wouldn’t be too much, with why not a return of Alex Caruso. Always highly appreciated by the Angelinos fanbase, the guard could be leaving the Bulls by the February deadline.
Someone get Caruso back in a Lakers jersey yesterday

Someone bring Caruso back in a Lakers jersey for yesterday
The Lakers have always regretted the departure of Caruso, who today delights Chicago with his playing intelligence. The perfect profile for the Purple and Gold, but we imagine that the Bulls will be greedy in the event of a trade. We would then have to look elsewhere, like the Grizzlies. As the franchise collapses (1-7 record) without Ja Morant, a departure from Marcus Smart remains a viable option.
The former Celtic, who arrived during the summer, could serve as a bargaining chip before February. Many supporters appreciate his profile.
I would love Marcus Smart on the Lakers. Not only for the defense but he’s a guy that will stand up and say something isn’t working. This year just feels like the Lakers are very content to just compete in close games, win or lose as long as all 15 players aren’t healthy

I would love to see Marcus Smart at the Lakers. Not just in his defense but he’s a guy who won’t hesitate to speak up if something isn’t working. This year it looks like the Lakers are content to play close games, win or lose, as long as all 15 players are healthy.
Marcus Smart or Alex Caruso? These are some interesting names for the Lakers roster, so it will be difficult to recruit them. But while waiting for Rob Pelinka, the supporters have already decided on their side…
