The easy thing here is to point out Lebron James Well, he’s one of the NBA’s big stars, who will also become the all-time leading scorer barring injury. But, as has become clear over the past two seasons, it is Anthony Davis who has it in his hand to define the possibilities of the Lakers in a Regular Phase.

The interior has had constant physical problems since arriving in the discipline of Los Angeles, which was only minimized by the suspension and postponement of the 2019-2020 campaign in which everything was solved in the bubble. The general trend of AD was to manage loads and these different physical problems.

So, Anthony Davis he has lost 29% of the games since arriving at the franchise and He has played just 47% since being crowned champion in October 2020. Sprained ankle, Achilles tendon, groin, toes, knee… Too many casualties for a player called upon to lead the franchise when James decides to retire.

That’s why all eyes will be on the Chicago native’s future and health. Someone who when healthy has proven to be one of the most versatile players in the entire NBA on both ends of the court. After a long time out of season where he was able to recover from all his illnesses and polish your grooming, Davis is tasked with being the driver for the Lakers.

Darwin Hamm has made it clear that he wants to move the offensive system to the interior, an idea that Frank Vogel has already explored unsuccessfully, but may now make sense given the team’s momentum. Will Davis be the figure everyone is waiting for?

The past few months have been a time of change once again in Los Angeles. Last year’s failure with the failed Russell Westbrook experiment forced Rob Pelinka and the entire administration to reframe the project. This led to revolution in the Lakers’ roster, and only six players from last season will repeat in this one. A number that could be reduced if Rush is eventually transferred, which has yet to be determined.

Among all these new faces on the Lakers there is one common pattern that unites them all. And it is that almost all the signings they have made in this market they are players who have something to prove, that is, they seek to restart their careers. There are two ways to achieve this goal in the NBA: go to a small and usually losing team, or go to an aspiring franchise. In the case of numbers like Dennis Schroeder, Lonnie Walker or Thomas Bryant It’s clear they chose to trust the Los Angeles project to land a more lucrative contract in the future if all goes well.

These kinds of moves are usually high-risk, especially if the results don’t come, which the Lakers know firsthand. That’s why the big question about the California team is whether with all these signings, including this one Patrick Beverley, they will be able to get back into the top 4 of the Western Conference. Past has shown that betting against LeBron James’ team when no one cares is usually wrong, but approaching his 38th birthday the margin for error is shrinking.

His followers Cleveland Cavaliers they saw Donovan Mitchell dress from first time the colors of his franchise, during Wednesday’s preseason game between the Cavs and the Philadelphia 76ers. And beyond his few minutes on the court (18:58), the former Jazz has already shown why he promises to be one of most impactful integrations for 2022-2023.

Mitchell He did what he does best: comment on. And at least in this case, he did it in a big way effectiveness: 16 points, 5 assists, 6-9 from the field and 3-4 on 3-pointers. If Cleveland was missing anything from its good season last season, it was a player with his attributes spida: someone capable create and solve individuallyto complement the team’s good collective level.

His points also came mostly against a strong defender as PJ Tuckerforced to score out of position because of it the Sixers’ lack of reliable perimeter defenders; (Thybulle seems to have lost her place in consideration).

Anyway, Mitchell’s strong start wasn’t enough for Cleveland (without Evan Mobley or Ricky Rubio), which is over fell 113-112 thanks to a Montrezl Harrell layup (13 points, 5-7 from the field in 16 minutes) in the final seconds.

Beyond this good and decisive contribution of Harrell, and the premiere of the preseason Joel Embiid (12 points) and James stiffens (9 points), the story of the evening in the venue was different amazing performance a Tyrese Maxey who looks ready to make another leap in quality.

Maxi had already shined in the opener against Brooklyn, adding 20 points in just 14 minutes. And this Wednesday he repeated the work with 21 credits in 15 minutes. In 29 minutes this preseason, the point guard has 41 points on 15 of 19 from the field and 5 of 7 on 3-pointers. Huge numbers, preseason or not, especially when you consider his production came against the Nets and Cavaliers starters.

The former Kentucky native already had a noticeable jump in quality between his freshman and sophomore years. And if it reaches one more level to the third, could tip the balance in the Eastern Conference race: The Sixers are expected to have two figures like Embiid and Harden, but if Maxey becomes one astral third leg (added the efficient Tobias Harris), Doc Rivers’ guys could have an unexpected difference to compete with the Bucks, Celtics, Heat, Nets and company.

Victor Webanyama’s 37 points in his debut appearance in the United States catapulted him to a level he might not have expected even at the age of 18. The basketball world is talking about the 18-year-old, who is 2.21 meters tall and looks like a cross between Durant, Antetokounmpo and Gober.

What happened on Wednesday (October 5th) after the G-League Ignite friendly against Metropolitan is extreme. Scott Henderson’s matchup with Victor Webanyama was highly anticipated, with notable NBA players such as Chris Paul and Devin Booker watching from the sidelines, with the two young athletes competing for No. 2 and no. 1 picks determined in the 2023 NBA Draft were Epic Duel.

That being said, the hype surrounding the tall 18-year-old Frenchman, who doesn’t play as a center despite his 2.21m tall, has risen to levels we may not have seen in the last many, many years. Aside from certain teams that are expected to increase their chances of being selected first in next June’s draft, many if not all 30 will be looking for ways to invest in this unique talent that has never been seen before Was seen.

Webanyama had 37 points (4/9 2-pointers, 7/11 3-pointers, 8/12 shots), had four rebounds, one assist, one steal and five blocks, committed just one foul in 33 minutes, but more than that Numbers, he impressed the way he moved, defended, attacked and executed his opponents. With determination, with stubbornness, with concentration, unfolding a package that looks like something out of a sci-fi screenplay.

The name Webbaniama is not new to those who deal with basketball on a daily basis. He’s been working for three years, since the day he looked Rudy Gober in the eye during a viral training session. We’ve seen him in the small French national teams, enjoyed and continue to enjoy him handling the ball and executing like another Kevin Durant while defending like Giannis Antetokounmpo and his compatriot, the main center of the French national team.

In the history of world basketball, there has never been an athlete like this, combining size, long arms, ability to handle the ball, leadership qualities and generally the combination of physical qualities with basketball ability. What is certain is that Webanyama will be selected first in the 2022 NBA draft, which can only be “broken” in the event of a serious injury. The tall 18-year-old left Villeurbanne to play a lot in national manager Vincent Collet’s Metropolitan and so far he’s perfectly eligible.

As for his answer to the question “what kind of player will he become”, the answer is simple. Into something we’ve never seen before.
