Colin Cowherd: Lakers Fans Acting Like Small Market Team

The Lakers were busy in free agency, adding a slew of veterans, and Colin Cowherd is skeptical of the moves given the players’ ages.

NBA Free Agency has become almost as fascinating of a watch in recent years as the season itself. While there were not any marquee names hitting the market this year other than perhaps the still unsigned Kawhi Leonard, there was still intrigue to be had. One of the most talked about teams was the Los Angeles Lakers, whose fans have drummed up a tizzy on social media. Colin Cowherd said on The Herd on Wednesday those fans need to temper expectations.

“In the NBA you don’t need five or six players to be great, you generally need three players in their prime to win a title,” he said. “All these players the Lakers have added, are any of them great? No. Are any of them in their prime? No. The entire Lakers roster has one player who is great and in his prime: Anthony Davis.”

The Lakers’ “Big Three” of Davis, Lebron James, and Russell Westbrook are 28, 36, and 32, respectively. As far as their additions go, five signings are over the age of 30, including Carmelo Anthony at 37. That lead Cowherd to refer to the roster as “an antique store”.

That has not stopped many Lakers fans from getting excited about some of the names added by the front office. Some are feeling like a revisit to the 2019-2020 championship season is possible, feeling that 2020-2021 was an anomaly.

Colin Cowherd accused Lakers fans of behaving like fans of a small market team, saying everyone the team got rid of was a bum and everyone they brought in was who fans wanted all along. He also had some stern words about those expectations.

“Wayne Ellington? Kendrick Nunn? Los Angeles, shake yourself. What’re you doing?”
