We’ve all had the same reaction: Great job by Magic Johnson and the Lakers getting LeBron James to come, but after that… things got weird. Yes, the odd signings are all one-year contracts that leave them in the hunt for the superstar to pair with LeBron (the most important thing), but still.
The people at Spun put together a new Lakers’ intro to the “Friends” theme and it’s brilliant.
Well played, Spun.
By the way, the toughness/shot creation spin by the Lakers is amusing. They did not stock up on good defenders (Rondo and Stephenson are past their sell-by date on that end) and the lack of shooting is going to make things crowded when they try to post LeBron. This is not a great roster. Good, but not great. Which is fine — it was built for flexibility to get the next star — but some Lakers’ fans may be expecting too much. This is not going to be a “Friends” level hit. Hopefully, it turns out better than “Joey.”
