Los Angeles Lakers Will Miss Andrew Wiggins Sweepstakes Because of Kobe Bryant’s Work Ethic

Andrew Wiggins High School Basketball: McDonald's All American Games

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Bill Simmons wrote an excellent piece lately where he gave the Los Angeles Lakers the blueprint to rebuild their franchise in one short year. He begrudgingly did this as the Boston Sports Guys, but he also mentioned that Jim Buss is basically the real life Tommy Boy and that he would screw everything up next year much as he screwed things up last year.

Personally, I think Kobe Bean Bryant will be back sooner than people give him credit for and though he will not be as good as last year, Bryant will be good enough to play the Lakers out of high lottery position. Instead the Lakers will either slip into the 7 or 8 seed, or possibly even miss the playoffs for the first time I can remember in some time.

Wiggins is a special player and he deserves a special team, but that does not necessarily always happen for the team with the first pick in the draft.
