When you’re witnessing history, you should take a step back to appreciate it. NBA fans should take the same care.

Technically, we’re always witnessing history. With that said, we’re not talking about watching the grass grow. We’re talking about special moments that will be remembered well into the future. 

For example, watching 38-year-old LeBron James perform at his current level is history worth witnessing. We may never see a player this old play this well again. 

Unfortunately, his efforts are largely going to waste on the Los Angeles Lakers.

At 19-21, this team wouldn’t qualify for the play-in tournament if the season ended today. 

Here’s a deal that ought to improve their playoff potential. 


Detroit Pistons Receive: G Russell Westbrook, 2027 First-Round Pick (LAL), 2029 First-Round Pick (Swap – LAL) 

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: F Bojan Bogdanovic, G/F Alec Burks 

Los Angeles Lakers Receive: F/C Kevin Love, G/F Caris LeVert, C Nerlens Noel
