NBA Twitter explodes after the potential starting lineup of the Los Angeles Lakers for the 2021-2022 season goes viral.
Like every year, this year’s Draft Day was a very special day in the NBA calendar. Not only did 60 young talents get drafted into the professional league, but we also got to witness several trade deals happening around the association.
However, no deal was bigger than the trade deal occurring between the Washington Wizards and the Los Angeles Lakers. The 2020 NBA champions sent Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Montrezl Harrell and the 22nd pick, in exchange, the Wizards sent superstar Russell Westbrook and 2024 and 2028 second-round picks.

The Lakers, who already were a powerhouse before the addition of the Brodie on their lineup, have possibly become one of the deadliest teams on paper. And recently, an NBA Twitter page – “Lakers All Day Everyday”, just released the potential starting for the Los Angeles-based team for the 2021-2022 season.
Potential starting lineup for the Lakers:
PG: Russell Westbrook
SG: Buddy Hield
PF: LeBron James
SF: Anthony Davis
C: Andre Drummond

NBA Twitter reacts to Los Angeles Lakers’ potential starting lineup for 2021-2022 season
According to the page, and several other analysts, LeBron James and co. will acquire Sacramento sharpshooter Buddy Hield. Even though the chances of that deal finalising are slim to none, a trio of LBJ, Anthony Davis, and Beastbrook, is a pretty horrific sight to look at for opponents.
However, NBA fans went crazy after seeing what could be the potential Lakers lineup for the upcoming campaign.
Not a strong line up at all, Sorry I dont see Lakers will be back in NBA finals again, they need to have a no. 6 and no.7 men to do that, this line up one man get injured their DONE

Name 1 guy in that lineup that can play a whole season. Yup 0. Injuries all year. Won’t make it out of the 2nd round.

man I had all the respect for your page until this post, the salary won’t work unless via a sign and trade with Schroder for Buddy. Kings don’t need another PG

It surely will be interesting to see how the Lakers’ front office approach this year’s free agency to surround King James, Russell Westbrook and AD with the right support cast. Even though it is way too early to make any predictions, LAL has undoubtedly become an instant favourite to win the upcoming title.
