LA Lakers big 3 players – will they be unstoppable?
While sitting courtside on Tuesday night, Steve Kerr saw the trio’s power during the pre-season game nights. With Lebron James, Russell Westbrook, and Anthony Davis tied up together in the LA Lakers team. The three are all trying to showcase their skills. While aiming for the soon-to-be championships.
Kerr watched their moves even better while sitting on the bench. This was during the trio’s debut together in a preseason game. It’s the Lakers against the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center.
Though at this preseason game, Lebron James has been more of an observer than a superstar. It’s similar to the previous games as the Lakers losing it again.

With a score of 111-99, Lebron and his teammates lost it to the short-handed Warriors. This leads to the Lakers preseason standing of 0-5. The Lakers are winless in the preseason. On Thursday night, their loss with Sacramento looked like their worst preseason play since 2012.
Warriors coach Kerr said, “Generally speaking, this stuff takes time. The good thing is, you know, if you have guys who want to be together, they’re going to commit to each other. And that seems to be the case here. I think these guys all want to play together. And so they’re going to figure it out. They’re all great players and smart players. “
After that game with the Golden State, Lebron was firm with his stance that there were limited benefits to playing exhibitions like this.
Lebron said, “It means something as far as individuals getting their rhythm, getting in game shape. We have our practices but being out on the floor and bumping against another team and things of that nature, that helps. “

The Lakers’ star moves were almost predictable. While their passes aren’t quite on point, the trio worked extra hard to build each other up. However, the talent was utterly undeniable between the three against standouts Draymond Green and Curry.
The Warriors won over the Lakers by 20 points in a leading first quarter for the Lakers. Davis finished with 20 points, Westbrook with 10 points, and Lebron with 6 turnovers and 17 points.
Next Tuesday night, one more exhibition game was left for the Lakers and the Warriors at Staples Center. Although it’s not likely that the Lakers’ big three will already work in sync.
According to Lakers coach Frank Vogel, it could take all year for the trio to be at their best. He said, “Ideally, that’s when we are at our best, going into the playoffs. But we have the mindset to hit the ground running and come out of the gates really strong with things clicking as best as we can.”
Though Vogel and the Lakers players were content with the team’s closed-door practices. Lebron believes those are far more important than the preseason games.
