Has this superstar duo already maxed out? Is it time for a fresh start for LA? Well, team general manager Rob Pelinka doesn’t believe that this is the case. In his mind, it is clear that in order for the Lakers to recapture ultimate success, they will need to remain steadfast: “LeBron and AD as two pillars is, you know, to us an unmatched combination that will continue to lean into and build around,” Pelinka said, via Anthony Gharib of Lares Nation. “Both incredibly high-character players that want to win (and) play the game the right way. We’re proud of that combination of superstars and want to continue to invest in that and invest in advancing the growth we had this year into next season.”
