Back in 2008, the NBA went through a major transition. That year marked the end of the Jason Kidd era in New Jersey, Shaq being traded from Miami to Phoenix, and the Lakers re-establishing themselves as contenders. The year of 2018 also saw a big transition.
The dynamics were different, however, as the Lakers are coming off the worst five years in franchise history. Their breakthrough isn’t happening, due to the young talent, it’s because LeBron James signed there. He is obviously their biggest star since Kobe Bryant.
After signing LeBron, Magic Johnson also signed Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, and JaVale McGee. Now, they have added Michael Beasley, the number two pic of the 2008 draft.
