Lakers crashed out of the first round of the NBA Playoffs after losing to the Suns as Anthony Davis hobbled off the floor early on in Game 6.
The Los Angeles Lakers were eliminated by the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the NBA playoffs after they lost Game 6. Frank Vogel’s men lost 100-113 and failed to force Game 7 in a nail biting series.
However, credit to the Suns for holding onto their nerves and coming up with two consecutive top performances against the reigning champions. Devin Booker who is considered as one of the flagbearers of the NBA in the future dropped a career 47 points to steer Monty Williams’ side to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Lakers always had the roster to be among the favorites to win the NBA Championship yet again. But the incessant injury concerns to their top two players in LeBron James and Anthony Davis made life more difficult for the reigning Champions. The Brow picked up a groin injury in Game 4 and then did not feature in their defeat in Game 5.
However, he suited up to play the all important Game 6, but could only manage to sustain around 5 minutes before going down in clear pain. He lacked that explosive attitude which is his strength and was visibly in pain.
Ever since joining the Lakers, A.D has suffered several injury concerns and that has affected the Purple and Gold immensely. Considering that Davis is the fulcrum of this team with LeBron James finishing his 18th season in the NBA. However, his persistent injury problems have been a major concern for the Lakers.
Chuck and the crew at TNT trolled Anthony Davis in their latest Lakers edition of ‘Gone Fishin’
Even Charles Barkley on TNT criticized the Lakers’ doctors for letting him play with so much pain. He also raised concerns over A.D continued his history with injuries and feels that he is doing something wrong in training.
However, Chuck and the NBA TNT crew sent the Lakers out to the sea in their lastest ‘Gone Fishin’ edition after they were eliminated in the first round. The image had LeBron James with a bunch of celebrities in their swimsuits in mid-air taking a jump at the sea.
The personalities were Leonardo DiCaprio, Mila Kunis, Snopp Dogg along with many other celebrities super fans. However, the catchy part of the image was a man sitting in a wheelchair fully covered in a bandage. It was a slight dig at A.D for being injured most of the times.

It was hilarious to see how Chuck has started growing a new passion for trolling people and after the Lakers’ defeat Anthony Davis was his latest victim.
