NOTE: Pretend Russell Westbrook is Chris Paul as for some reason, Fanspo doesn't have Paul listed as a potential free agent.

NOTE: This team is under the second apron, but over the first. Fanspo is just really dumb sometimes.

Shoutout to AG_Atto0 who does this every single year for all thirty teams. This season, I wanted to do my own version for the Los Angeles Lakers, my favorite team. Remember, this is ideal so things are slightly tilted towards the Lakers favor. Feel free to comment your thoughts and let's get to it.


  1. Send PG Gabe Vincent, PG Jalen Hood-Schifino, and a 2029 Top Ten Protected First Round Pick to the Orlando Magic for C Wendell Carter Jr.

  2. Send Cam Reddish and a 2025 LAC Second Round Pick to the Detroit Pistons for littarely nothing.

Season Goals

NOTE: I do not expect these to happen, but they all have a small chance.

  1. Anthony Davis becomes the best player under a new coach and wins his first MVP.

  2. Max Christie becomes an elite 3&D shooting guard in the starting lineup.

  3. This Lakers team wins over 50 games.

  4. Austin Reaves averages over 20 PPG.

  5. The Lakers stun the world and win the championship.
