The LA Lakers are one of the most storied franchises across all of North American sports, so it’s always a little shocking to watch them struggle. But the drama is much more intense when the Lakers open the season with high NBA championship odds, then fail to stay above .500.
That is, of course, exactly what is happening this season.
Part of the problem is star forward Anthony Davis, who remains both disappointing and injury-prone.
Quinton Mayo and Trysta Krick discussed whether or not Davis even wants to remain in LA on the most recent edition of BetMGM Tonight.
Listen to BetMGM Tonight live on Audacy radio stations from 7-11 p.m. ET on weekdays, and check out the show as a podcast on Apple Podcasts and elsewhere.
