The Los Angeles Lakers are 0-5 after losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, and there is no shortage of blame.
According to various people, the Lakers are struggling because (take your pick) Russell Westbrook is still on the team, the roster is poorly constructed, LeBron James and Anthony Davis don't have enough offensive support around them, James is too old, James doesn't care about winning anymore and only cares about his own stats, etc.
There is also a contingent of fans and observers who think Davis has caused a good chunk of the Lakers' problems. They cite his tendency to get injured and what they see as declining performance over the last two years.
Former NBA big man Channing Frye seems to be in that camp.
Via Lakers Daily:
Some Lakers fans have wanted Davis traded for the reasons Frye outlined. However, the chances of that happening anytime soon are about as high as a snowstorm hitting Los Angeles this winter.
The big man is averaging 24 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 2.3 blocked shots while shooting 52.7% from the field so far this season.
