Since June 30th at 6PM, all Lakers fans have dreamed about seeing Kawhi Leonard suit up in the Purple and Gold and play along side LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Every Lakers fan has Adrian Wojnarowski tweet alerts turned on right now, waiting for the moment Woj, bombs us with the Kawhi news.
I’m here to tell you that the Lakers do not need Kawhi Leonard to win the 2020 NBA Championship. They need Matthew Dellavedova. The Curry Killer. Delly is the elite back-court defender the Lakers need to contend with the Western Conference guards. With guards such as Lilliard, Westbrook, Conley, Harden, CP3, and many more, the Lakers HAVE to have this asset.
Jeanie Buss, Rob Pelinka, and LeBron James’s camp need to put Kawhi aside and focus on Delly. I guarantee if the Lakers were to sign Delly, they would hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy next year.
“Because he’s the hero Los Angeles deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.”
This is completely satire. I hope the Lakers are able to pull off getting the Klaw, for LeBron’s legacy’s sake. On a real note, I do think Delly would be a great fit for the team as a role player no matter if they get Kawhi or not.
