So, which is worse – The current “Big 3” for the Los Angeles Lakers or the trio of Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and Dwight Howard? There was much hype around the NBA for both groups, but the results underachieved for each.

The fact that this season is even being mentioned in the same sentence as the Lakers’ infamous recent attempt at a “Big 3” just shows how disappointing it has been. Los Angeles has already been eliminated from the postseason after entering the season as one of the favorites to win the NBA title. 

LeBron James averaged an incredible 30.3 points per game but has lost the NBA scoring title due to the number of games he’s missed. It is clear that he is not going anywhere but the same cannot be said about the rest of the team.

The Los Angeles Lakers made a big splash by acquiring Russell Westbrook in the offseason but it was obvious early on that this arrangement was not going to work. Also, Anthony Davis has been unable to stay healthy once again.

If James is not leaving, then who is the trade piece?

If the partner is the San Antonio Spurs, it is likely to be Davis. San Antonio has a history of featuring elite big men in its history.

The Spurs are going through a bit of a transition period but feature two strong guards in Dejounte Murray and Keldon Johnson. They are the type of guards that can be built around. Anthony Davis would complete the core and solidify the rotation on both ends.
