Time to look ahead. Meh. The future is still pretty bleak since the powers that be mortgaged the team's future for an LBJ/AD title.

Lakers Face Major Offseason Questions​

Here are some queries Los Angeles must answer this offseason.

While the Lakers’ season is not officially over, their disastrous 2022 run reached another milestone Tuesday night, when the team was eliminated from any postseason contention after a loss to the Suns. Los Angeles is now not even eligible for the play-in tournament, cementing what has been one of the most hilarious and frankly unsurprisingly awful seasons in recent NBA history. Two years ago, this team won the NBA Finals. Now, it's headed for the lottery…except that lottery pick is headed to the Pelicans, who will finish multiple games ahead of the Lakers in the West. With Los Angeles’s importance to the current state of affairs in the league at essentially zero, it’s only fair to look ahead to the offseason.

Here are four big questions the Lakers will face this summer.

Will Anybody Trade for Russell Westbrook?
What Position is Anthony Davis Going to Play?
Are You Keeping Talen Horton-Tucker?
Who is Going to be the Coach?

:championship:

Hey, had to throw a little smack in the smack forum, it is really lacking in smack. Maybe when the Lakers get up and running again we'll see a bit more...
Suns fans: Super teams suck

Also Suns fans: Let's get Durant

(Also very ironic for a Suns fan to use :championship: in a post lol)
