Anthony Davis has a HUGE PROBLEM that will RUIN the Lakers [NBA BUBBLE 2020]
Davis has a HUGE PROBLEM that will RUIN the Lakers [NBA BUBBLE 2020]
Avery Bradley opt out. It's not the end of the world. Raison.
Rondo gets injured that is nothing. They said as long as ad and LeBron are
healthy the Lakers are good and I believed them. But what if the only thing
they can actually rely on is LeBron James only 54% of one seeds make the NBA
Finals that means almost half the time. The number one seed is upset in the
first three rounds in this video. We're breaking down the number one reason the
one seated Lakers will
I'll not make the NBA Finals. We've learned a lot in the bubble so
far for the Lakers. It is a really bad sign. Hey, it's Kasey. Welcome to am
Hoops hit subscribe and hit notification Bells because we come out with five
videos per week on the channel. You should be a subscriber the videos Monday
through Friday always drop at five eastern also just came out with an Hoops.com
which is going to have all of the shirts and hoodies that we normally talk
about here on the channel put a lot of work.
There's hopefully you'll see so am Hoops.com go check it out and
let me know what you think. So the Lakers have excuses for why Anthony Davis
was so passive in the loss to the Raptors. I mean, you only scored 7 points. So
Frank Vogel ad and LeBron had the answers ready and what they said was he
actually played great. They double-team dady and he made the right reads it the
Lakers didn't shoot 10 440 from 3. It would be different and that is true, but
it's also a convenient.
Ian excuse you're telling me that ad is a top-five player and he
can be taken out of the game like that. You're saying that a team with two top
five players are controlled by the other team and not the other way around. No,
the Lakers are just covering for Anthony Davis because this is becoming a trend
in the win over the Clippers 80 scored zero points in the fourth quarter and
the three Clipper games before that. He scored four four and two points in the
fourth quarter. Again. This is a trend.
AG is a passive player when the lights get too bright and before
you slam me in the comments for this. I'm not saying he won't be a killer later
on. I mean, he's just 27 years old. I'm not saying I know his future. I'm just
saying these are the facts eight years in the NBA so far. We have not seen it a
d does not have now what makes the best Championship level players Seven Years
in New Orleans. He led the Pelicans to the playoffs twice. They won one series
That's not good enough. LeBron didn't have Superstar teammates
early on he was in the East but the Cavs missed the playoffs the first two
years then made it every year after that until he left. They won a series every
single time. They made the Conference Finals twice and the finals in 2007 all
that and we still called LeBron James a choker. That's the thing Laker fans
will say I'm a hater but really I'm just stating the facts until ad prove.
He is a winner in big games. He doesn't have it and you all know
what it looks like. I mean the guy with the most it ever just had a 10 hour
documentary made about him. We saw it over and over in Michael. Jordan's eyes
the big knock on him was he pushed his teammates too far? Sometimes he punched
Steve Kerr in the face Kobe had it Tim Duncan even soft-spoken, but you did not
want to mess with him in a big game. LeBron had to learn.
An it but eventually he did that Killer Instinct has not shown up
yet though for Anthony Davis, but I know people are going to have even more
excuses for a d so let's get back to these recent struggles. Okay, first off.
Yes. I know he starts the fourth quarter on the bench. So it affects his fourth
quarter scoring. I also know the Lakers Shooters have been really bad. I mean
Danny Green kcp and Markieff Morris had started three from 24 from downtown.
That's bad. But still we need to stop making
Excuses for a guy you tell me is a top-five player double-teams is
not an excuse to score 7 points against the Raptors. There's no excuse for a
top-five guy to disappear in the fourth quarter against the Clippers. I mean if
your Shooters are going 10 from 24 from downtown stop passing to them take the
memo. They're cold today. It's gonna happen. I hate to break it to Laker fans.
Danny Green, especially, I mean if you followed the Spurs for a few years, you
know that Danny Green is a super strict.
Shooter so if plan a isn't working go to plan B and it wasn't all
double-teams. By the way. What is this? What is this? Why not be aggressive
there and not dribble out and pass 80 needs to take over if plan a isn't
working. And by the way, if you're honest doesn't take over in big games again
in the playoffs. We are going to question his ability to do so, we aren't just
going to be like oh, but they double-team Dianna. So never mind. He's off the
Look, I know we're going to say he can't take over games. He's
passive. He's not a winner and the biggest spots. He's a choker again. These
are just the facts ad shoots 53 percent in the first three quarters and forty
percent in the fourth quarter. And yes, it is a fact that the Lakers like to go
to LeBron James in the fourth quarter, is that because ad is too passive or is
it because LeBron thrives in that role either way even that is not an excuse
For four and zero points in the fourth against the Clippers is
bad. No matter how you cut it LeBron takes over in the fourth, but he doesn't
take over that much and that Clippers stat is really what concerns me not even
the seven points against the Raptors because 80 should dominate the Clippers. I
mean they have an answer for LeBron with two of the best Wing defenders in the
NBA, but the Clippers have no answer for Anthony Davis and we see that in the
first three quarters. He was able to score 34
Four Points in the bubble in the first three quarters against the
cliffs he shot 17 free throws, they found him so much because they have no one
to Garden. There's no other explanation here for the biggest moments of the
game fraidy something happens upstairs. So far. Mentally, he doesn't have it.
Now. I am going to leave the door open for being wrong 80 could go out there
and prove me wrong and I hope for Laker fan sake he does that he goes out
there. He comes up huge late and big games wins playoff game.
And if he does that I will
come on here and say I am so sorry. I was at dead wrong. Like I might have to
do about Bulbul or the Raptors of the Sixers. But so far he hasn't shown it and
secretly even though he won't say so LeBron James is seriously worried about
this. He is 35 years old. This is his last best chance to win a title earlier.
I said LeBron learned it. He doesn't have time to let ad figure it out in the
playoffs, but I want to make one thing clear.
ER I really respect Anthony Davis for joining the LA Lakers to
begin with because now we are going to judge him he was safe in his small
Market on the Pelicans the media could always say oh that ad he's a top-five
player if they would only get him some help. Well now he has helped making this
move was a risk to his legacy. If ad can't win now we'll say he is not a
championship level player. He'll be just like the million other dudes in NBA
history that have
But not trophies guys like Allen Iverson or Tracy McGrady or James
Harden now just a notch below the greatest players of all time. Now, I have no
doubt that ad is hearing all this and so are his teammates he is going to have
some really big games coming up whatever his points prop is according to Vegas
for his next game. I would take the over I bet he dominates but at this point
there is nothing ad can do that will show us he has what it takes until playoff
time. Now if all this is
Is true in ad really is this passive player we've seen in the
bubble or his entire career. Then I think the Lakers won't even make it past
the Clippers if they face them in the Western Conference finals. And if that
happens then LeBron chose the wrong starts he made to join up with tons of
talent. Yes without that Killer Instinct to close the deal support am hoops and
