Nothing is as inspiring in the NBA as a comeback. When the odds are against someone, that’s when we root for them the most.

It’s a compelling narrative. Basically, we like to watch something difficult get accomplished. 

On a related note – nobody expected this version of the Los Angeles Lakers to make a comeback. The viability of a LeBron James / Russell Westbrook pairing has long been dismissed.

Lately, everyone has been forced to second-guess themselves. 

After all, the Lakers have won 5 of their last 6 contests. Anthony Davis looks like an MVP candidate again.

The Lakers may be a small change away from rejoining the ranks of contention. A small change like, for example, landing sharpshooter Seth Curry.

Here’s a deal that has the Lakers doing exactly that. 


Brooklyn Nets Receive: F Jae Crowder, G/F Josh Okogie 

Phoenix Suns Receive: G Patrick Beverley 

Los Angeles Lakers Receive: G Seth Curry
