Is he upset with the Coach? His role on the team? Still not trusting his knee 100%? Not in good enough shape? Just doesn't have the explosion he used to? I'm not sure, but I do know that naturally for a good number of players throughout the NBA and history, not just in the NBA, but in several other professional sports, after a player gets his contract, naturally, unfortunately, many of them get a little comfortable.
Luke screwed us, but it turned out he was totally just a fluke anyway. Huge mistake there and unfortunately Sasha may have too. We could've gotten' so many way better players than Sasha for around that same price range of contract we gave him, if not a little more or a little less, like Posey, as much as we hate him, but he wins championships, and or even Matt Barnes who's barely making anything close to what Sasha is. Both those guys don't just shoot 3s like Sasha mostly seemingly, but they can do A LOT of other things overall Sasha cannot, they're way more athletic, and most importantly, they bring a huge toughness impact to the whole team. Sometimes, the Lakers, us, we are TOO LOYAL to a FAULT.
I didn't and still don't think completely Andrew will be one of those that kinda screws us again cuz I just don't think he's that type of guy. He seems like a man of his word, great guy, determined, full of potential, it's all there for him, but unfortunately, at least based off what I've seen so far this season from him and especially lately, I can't help but say I've been severely disappointed. Maybe he just needs more time? Who knows, but something's definitely not right with our big guy.
