The Los Angeles Lakers have some of the biggest names in the NBA on their team.
Sadly, that isn’t enough as the Lakers are now officially tenth in the West and are barely hanging on to their chance of a spot in the NBA Play-In Tournament.
There is essentially no way the team will make it far into the postseason, which means Lakers fans are already thinking ahead and hoping that things turn around next season.
They are also hoping and praying the front office is able to land even more major talent in the offseason.

Some LA fans are setting their hopes on Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard.
For years now, followers of the Lakers have been angling to get Lillard; he’s become the Moby Dick of the Lakers for legions of fans.
But is there any real chance of the team landing Lillard?
Lillard To LA?
You have to look at the public comments Lillard has made when you consider him moving down south to Los Angeles.
Firstly, he has repeatedly said that he isn’t going to leave the Blazers.
He has also seemingly scoffed at the concept of him playing in purple and gold.
Of course, you need to take these comments with a grain of salt because not many NBA stars openly admit when they are thinking of being traded.
There is a chance that Lillard will tire of his team losing and will demand a trade.
But it’s important to remember that nearly every team in the league would move heaven and Earth to get Lillard.
What are the chances that he’d depart Portland for a team that is struggling in so many ways?
For now, the idea of Lillard playing for LA is just a pipe dream but that won’t stop fans from fantasizing about it.
