Alex Caruso wants the season to return in order to have the chance to play for the title. The back-up guard of the Los Angeles Lakers believes that chances to win the title are so rare and his team could get to win it, should the NBA decides to resume play.

“That’s the simple reason why I want to finish the season. There is no other reason other than that… I mean obviously you want to get paid, you want to get all your money and you don’t want to mess up the CBA, but you don’t get a lot of chances to win a ring unless your name is LeBron James, right?

I’m a role player, I know my role and I’m working to get better and to maybe have a bigger role on different teams, but I know that the chances are very slim. You don’t get many opportunities, and you hear that from so many people around the league and in professional sports, that you don’t get a lot of opportunities to win championships.

I’m not taking this for granted. I’m 100%, ten toes in trying to get back in and win this, because that would be a life accomplishment, career accomplishment, you can’t top that. It would be nice to get one, and then obviously if I got one I’m gonna try and get another one. I’m just excited to be a part of it.

I want to be the last one standing. I want to know what that feeling is, and I think we have the team to do it. I’m just getting excited talking about it right now, I’m getting a little hyped up,” Caruso claimed during a recent appearance on “The LiucciCast“, per SBNation.

The Lakers were on top of the Western Conference, before the season pause that took place back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Los Angeles Lakers team will have to go through many obstacles to win the championship. The coronavirus crisis may be the biggest among others.
