The once mighty Los Angeles Lakers needed a bit of luck to start turning around the fortunes of the franchise during the 2015 NBA lottery and a bit of luck is just what they received. Despite having the fourth worst record in the NBA this season, the Lakers will move up two spots and will pick number two overall in the NBA draft. Bloomberg recently reported something that the guys at Madison Street Capital have known for a long time, that the last time the Lakers had a draft pick this high they picked James Worthy, who became a key element to the Laker’s championship run during the 1980s and 1990s. Picking number two is almost better than picking number one as the team will not have the pressure of wondering if they are in fact picking the best player in the draft and the baggage with picking number one. That fate fell on the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Lakers had their worst season that any Laker fan could remember and what is more concerning is that there are few building blocks that fans can look towards on the team to see Championship caliber team come out of Los Angeles anytime soon. The current laker roster has an aging Kobe Bryant who may have one or two years left before he retires. Many believe that the next NBA season will be Kobe’s last. Current forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kevin Love will be a free agent and him landing in Los Angeles is a distinct possibility. However, without another young super star, fans will have to be patient with this current Laker team.Lakers Land Number 2 Overall NBA Pick.
