I’m not one of those writers. I think there is only one place for him to go to revive his career and that is The Los Angeles Lakers.
Lamar belongs with the Lakers. It’s the only team he feels comfortable with and it was the team that he played the best for. After all, he was instrumental in the Lakers’ back to back championships. He was even Sixth man of the Year last season. And he is still the most versatile player in the league. Name me one other player that can play all five positions. I’ll wait.
Now, whether the Lakers will be able to get him back is another story. While he is no longer with the Mavericks, he is still under contract. Dallas can trade him to any team this offseason. The question is, after Lamar’s lackluster season, will any team want to trade for him?
Dallas can always release him and then he will be on the open market.
The real question is do the Lakers want him back? Kobe Bryant has gone on record saying he would welcome Lamar back. So hopefully that will have some sway with Lakers management.
I truly believe that if Lamar came back to the Lakers we would see the Lamar of old. He would be the x-factor that the Lakers desperately need.
If Lamar comes back to the Lakers, they can easily contend for another championship. And in the end that’s all that matters.
