Chris Broussard: “If the Lakers get Anthony Davis, they are going to be a FORCE next year as a contender with a chance to win the Championship.”
Listen to Chris Broussard and Rob Parker discuss the Caesars Palace sportsbook releasing the NBA Championship odds for 2020, which were a little eye-opening considering the casino’s audacious attempt to incite bettors.
The Los Angeles Lakers were listed at 5-1 odds to win the NBA Finals next season just a couple months removed from one of the most embarrassing seasons in franchise history, as they finished just 37-45 with LeBron James failing to make the playoffs for the first time in over 15 years.
The high odds were second in the Western Conference behind Golden State and obviously mean Vegas believes Anthony Davis will be dawning the Lakers’ purple and gold next season.
Check out the audio above as Chris actually agrees with Vegas and thinks the Lakers would be a major title contender next season if they combined LeBron with AD.
