The Los Angeles Lakers have been the laughing stock of the league for a while now.
There have been so many players who have been bad, the Lakers are often perceived as a bottom feeder, and so much has been made of the fact that their franchise player, Kobe Bryant, has been out for six months due to a concussion.
The Lakers have a tough schedule, with five games coming against the Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards, San Antonio Spurs, Orlando Magic, and the Toronto Raptors.
There are also the tough matchups against the Memphis Grizzlies and the Denver Nuggets, and there are also some playoff matchups, like against the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers.
It’s hard to tell how good the Lakers will be going forward, and it’s also hard to know if they will be able to compete against teams like the Miami, Memphis, Orlando, and Denver teams.
The key is to understand that the Lakers have so many talented players who can make plays for them.
There will be some bad games against the other teams, but the Lakers also have some good ones, like the Los Angeles Clippers and the San Antonio Mavericks.
To get a feel for the Lakers’ roster, I looked at the player production over the past three seasons.
I looked up every player’s scoring, rebounding, and field goal percentage.
For example, I’ve highlighted Kobe Bryant’s scoring and rebounding since 2011, while the team’s rebounding and shooting percentage is only available through the last four seasons.
Then I compared each player’s production in their first two years in the league to the team in which they were drafted.
Here’s what I found: The Lakers had two elite players for three straight seasons, and in that span, they averaged 2.6 wins per year.
They did this despite losing four of their first five games.
Bryant was the clear-cut No. 1 overall pick, and he had a career year for the first time since 2010.
He averaged 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game in the 2011-12 season, which was his first year of eligibility after he was drafted.
He was the Lakers best player at every position.
The Lakers also had two great players in Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol, who averaged 17.1 points, 10.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 2.4 steals per game each season from 2012-14.
But it wasn’t just the players on the floor.
They also had a strong bench.
In 2011-13, they had the best bench in the NBA, with Dwight Howard averaging 15.1 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.9 steals, and 1.6 blocks per game.
Howard was traded to the Miami Bulls in the summer of 2013 and has since become the best rebounder in the history of the NBA.
But Pau Gasols career was not without some struggles.
His numbers dipped to just 13.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 3 blocks, and 0.8 steals per season from 2013-14, and that was his last season of eligibility.
He also was a point guard, but it was not an accurate representation of his career.
Pau’s best season came in 2014-15, when he averaged 17 rebounds, 9.7 points, 3 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks, 1 steal, and 7.2 blocks per contest.
He is still just 26 years old.
A look at the Lakers players by position: Lakers point guard Kobe Bryant was a top 10 pick by the Lakers in the 2010 NBA Draft, and had the league’s best record.
He made his Lakers debut in 2013, and they won their first title in franchise history in 2014.
In his third year, Bryant averaged 13.4 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 6.8 assists, 4 blocks, 0.6 steals, 1 steals, 0 steals, 7 rebounds, 1 blocks, 2 turnovers, and 10.7 turnovers per game, which is the second best career scoring average in franchise annals behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 17.8 points per game average in 1975-76.
Laker center Pau Gasoleau was the second overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.
His rookie season was a disappointment for the team, as he averaged 13 points and 10 rebounds per game for the Clippers.
Gasol started the next season as a starting center, but his career has been on a downward trend, as the Lakers finished 29-57.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Pau Gasoline was the fifth overall pick by Atlanta in the 2013 NBA Draft and spent the next four seasons playing in the Atlanta Hawks’ rotation.
He never made a All-Star team, and missed the majority of the 2016-17 season due to injury.
Kobe Bryant was traded in a trade to the Los Vegas Lakers in July of 2018.
He had a disappointing
