The Los Angeles Lakers will be without Avery Bradley when the season resumes in Orlando after the point guard decided to sit out due to family reasons. Sports analyst Skip Bayless thinks that it will be a big loss for LeBron James and the Lakers.
In a tweet, Bayless remembered the single game this season when the Lakers defeated the Clippers. Bradley made six three-pointers in that game, four of them were in the third quarter when LeBron was scoreless.
“LeBron will dearly miss Avery Bradley, who will miss Orlando for the right reasons, family/BLM. In the 1 of 3 games the Lakers beat the Clippers, Bradley made 6 threes – 4 in 3rd q when LeBron scored 0. He is also a lockdown perimeter defender. But Clips could also lose Lou,” Bayless tweeted.
This season Bradley averaged 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. JR Smith has reportedly emerged as the leading candidate to replace him. Former Laker Nick Young is also rumored to be among the players considered by the Purple & Gold.
