The Kobe Bryant era in Los Angeles is over.
After a ton of pomp and circumstance to send the Mamba out, the Lakers are still where they always were -- but now they have an insane amount of cap room and one of the league's worst records to improve upon writes ESPN.
When it comes to NBA 2K16 (or 2K17) the Lakers are going to present themselves as a fantastic challenge in MyGM to rebuild from the ground up. There are some decent pieces present, with both DeAngelo Russell at the point and Julius Randle at Power-Forward.
But the team itself is coming off of a historically, woefully bad season. Last in the league in scoring, a 17-65 record, a defense that wasn't the worst in the league but might as well have been -- there's a lot of just flat out building to do with the Lakers.
What would you do with the cap space? Would you make a run at high profile free agents like Kevin Durant? Build through the draft? Sound off in the comments below!
