The biggest attraction of the NBA off-season is player trading and contract renewal. Every year, there are many high-priced contract renewals, and this year is no exception. For example, the Timberwolves renewed Edwards in advance for five years and the Grizzlies renewed Bain in advance for five years and 207 million dollars. The purpose of this early contract renewal is obvious. In the next few years, this player will be the core of team building. Of course, some team management also has their own considerations, and only three-year contracts will be given to the core players of the team. For example, Green of Warriors, after all, is affected by age, and it is very likely that Green’s ability will be seriously degraded after three seasons. At present, there is a potential early renewal of the contract with the Lakers’ thick eyebrows. As one of the cores of the team, if the thick eyebrows complete the renewal before the start of training camp, they can get a contract with a maximum of 170 million US dollars for three years. The reason why they have not reached an intention so far, the Lakers management still has their own concerns!
The thick eyebrows of the champion’s debut can be called the genius of the insider. They can not only turn the world upside down in the restricted area, but also have dribbling and shooting like guards. The performance of the park in 2020 is a classic masterpiece of the peak thick eyebrows. In the park, Thick Eyebrow is a super efficient and comprehensive scorer, and his statistics are crazy. He averaged 27.7 points in the playoff, shooting 57% and shooting 38% from three-pointers. In the second game of the Western Conference finals, he won the first championship ring in his career, and the Lakers were finally on an equal footing with the Celtics. The boss was not stingy. But after that season, Thick Eyebrows never showed their talent in the playoffs, but they got continuous injuries and consumed James year after year. Until last season, Thick Eyebrows seemed to find themselves in the park again, averaging 25.9 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2 blocks per game, and fully demonstrated their inside power against Grizzlies and Warriors in the playoffs, and finally the Lakers returned to the stage of the Western Conference finals.
As for the Lakers’ delay in giving thick eyebrows this contract extension, there should be two concerns.First, the thick eyebrows did not prove that he had broken away from the injury.In the past three seasons, Thick Eyebrow has played 130 games in the regular season, so it is said that Thick Eyebrow has not been selected for the best defensive team and the best team in the past three years, and even has not been selected for the All-Star team in the last two seasons. You should know that Thick Eyebrow’s game performance has almost filled the data column. He is the first player in the league with steals and blocked shots in the past ten years, but it is a pity that he was excluded because of attendance. Although last season was the season with the highest attendance rate in the last three seasons, it was less than 60 games, even the same as James, who was eight years older than himself. Therefore, this is one of the Lakers’ great worries. If the heavy eyebrows can’t keep healthy and fall off the chain in the playoffs, the Lakers will have no way out.
The second worry is that James can play for a few years.How many years can James play is a hot topic in recent years, but last season’s playoff performance proved that James can play for at least another three years, but the key question is whether James can stay in the Lakers. As early as last season, James said that he would not consider retiring for the time being and would wait until Brownie entered the league to fight alongside him, no matter which team. Once James chooses to leave the Lakers at the end of next season, the Lakers will become a single-core team. It is more difficult to win the championship than to ascend to heaven. Thick eyebrows have no ability to become the boss of the team. In the seven seasons he played for Pelican, Thick Eyebrows only entered the playoffs twice, and the best result was the Western Conference semifinals, so it is naturally impossible to expect Thick Eyebrows to reshuffle themselves, not to mention that after James left, the Lakers will definitely reshuffle their cards, making it even more difficult to win the championship.
No matter what kind of worry, once it happens, it is enough for the Lakers management to drink a pot. It takes a lot of young capital to get a heavy eyebrow from the pelican trade. If you don’t pray for another Lakers dynasty, you should at least win another championship, otherwise the Lakers will lose blood. I admit that Thick Eyebrow is a player with good offensive and defensive skills in the forefront of the league, but without teammates like James, his dominance will be greatly reduced. Coupled with the impact of injuries, Thick Eyebrow’s three-pointers last season have disappeared, and his fast-break and difficult air-catching abilities have regressed with the naked eye. It is a bloody lesson that the Western Conference finals were swept by the Nuggets. Without outside threats, Jokic’s defense could not be mobilized, which brought great difficulties to teammates’ storming. Next season is a crucial season for the Lakers. The management may even take the risk of jumping out of the contract and consider renewing the contract after the end of next season. If you want to stay with the Lakers, the heavy eyebrows must come up with a better state in the new season, one is to stay healthy, and the other is to reproduce the dominance in the park, otherwise they are likely to be swept out by the Lakers!
