Nobody can turn a blind eye to the difficult situation the Lakers are in, despite having some of the biggest household names in the NBA. The promising start anticipated by that roster has disappointed two years in a row. LeBron James and Co. are finding it difficult to score efficiently in the final thirds of the game, and somehow, the best defensive unit from 2020 finds a way to falter most of the time during a match.

During the preseason, Rob Pelinka assured the fanbase and the franchise of maximizing the strength of the roster around James. But they are starting to feel like empty words yet again.

James doesn't want to play the waiting game

LeBron is going to turn 38 soon. He knows the effects of aging on a sportsman's mind and body and the continuous decline in form. LeBron James joined the Lakers intending to win many titles with the team, but he has only won one so far. He is overseeing one of the toughest times the Lakers are going through.

The King realizes that it's now or never for the Lakers franchise. With teams like the Grizzlies, Mavericks, and Suns tearing up the Western Conference, it's only natural for James to lash out at Lakers management for failing to make viable trades even when they can see the franchise is in trouble.

Trade is the name of the game

The Lakers need to do something about their season, or it will be too late to even become contenders for a playoff spot, let alone go beyond that. Inconsistency is looming over the franchise, and the team seems to have a large distrust. Trading players in and out of the team seems to be their only option.

The Lakers are sitting dead last in the Western Conference. The management is reassuring that they are waiting for the specific player before making any trades from the roster. Currently, the team is incapable of acting and performing on its words, and it will be interesting to see how the management and star players react to the developments within the organization.
