The Lakers are More Equipped for a Title Run than the Suns, According to Tim Legler
Former NBA All-Star Tim Legler recently joined the Get Up team to discuss the top story lines and highlights of the NBA’s in-season tournament. During the discussion, Legler made the bold statement that he believes the Los Angeles Lakers are more equipped for a title run than the Phoenix Suns.
Legler has been watching the Lakers closely, and he believes they are the title contending team to beat in the Western Conference. According to him, the team has improved tremendously since the start of the season and they currently have a championship-contending squad that is more set up for the playoffs, when compared to other teams in the NBA. Specifically, Legler notes that the Lakers have a motivated roster ready to make a playoff run, including LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Marc Gasol.
Legler Praises the Lakers’ Depth and Experience
Legler further discussed the Lakers as a “Goliath” in the West, noting that veteran presence and championship experience could be the key to the team’s success. He believes that role players like Dennis Schroder and Kyle Kuzma could be key pieces to the Lakers’ success in the playoffs. Overall, Legler appears to have put his trust at least partially in the Lakers to make a deep playoff run and possibly even clinch the title.
As the NBA playoffs draw closer, the core teams have began to separate from each other in terms of talent performance. With a pair of stars in Anthony Davis and LeBron James, the Lakers have become the team to beat and Legler’s opinion reflects that.
