Los Angeles Lakers had huge success during the offseason, forming a formidable team around LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
The Lakers turned around the franchise the last three seasons, winning a title in the process in the 2019-20 season. Jalen Rose praised Lakers’ general manager Rob Pelinka for his work during those three seasons.

“All I know is this: My former teammate Rob Pelinka running laps around the rest of the league as it relates to putting this roster together,” said Jalen Rose. “I remember coming on this program for days and days, and weeks and weeks when people were trying to assassinate his character when he got the job. Now, all I see is the best team in basketball.
The Lakers added Russell Westbrook in a blockbuster trade with the Washington Wizards. They also signed Kendrick Nunn, Malik Monk, Wayne Ellington, Kent Bazemore, Dwight Howard, and Rajon Rondo via free agency.
