What happened to the Lakers of the Disneyland ring?

What has become of Los Angeles Lakers champions from Disneyland? The team led by Lebron James He won the ring less than two years ago in an unprecedented setting, an anti-covid bubble devised by the NBA to resume its competition.

Today, just 24 months later, that champion squad wears, almost completely, another shirt. Only three of the players who touched the sky were still in LA this summer. Later, two returned to the house that made them champions.

This is what those 16 players who won the ring in Orlando now look like. LeBron James and Anthony Davis they continue to lead a team that has undergone a total facelift. Talen Horton-Tucker he has grown, going from being a young man without minutes to a promise of the future. The rest went out in search of new adventures.

Dwight Howard and Rajon RondoTwo pieces of that triumph flew to new destinations. After a year away, now they have returned in search of another champion ring. We will see if both manage to have the same importance.

The rest have been coming out for one reason or another. Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope have been a bargaining chip to allow the arrival of Russell westbrook to LA, while Danny green signed a contract with the Sixers, where he will continue this year.

Markieff Morris He ended up in Miami, which has formed a very interesting squad for this season. There also passed briefly Avery bradley, who was part of the champion Lakers although he did not go to the bubble. The guard now wears the colors of the Warriors.

We lack Mcgee, a fundamental piece of the Angelenos in the odyssey of the bubble. The veteran center has signed a contract with the reigning champions of the West, Phoenix Suns. Also special mention for Alex Caruso, a fan favorite they couldn’t keep this summer and will play for the Bulls.

Finally a Quinn Cook that will make Portland your new home, a Antetokounmpo who left Hollywood behind and, above all, a Jared dudley who announced his retirement and now wears the assistant coat at the Dallas Mavericks.
