NBA: Lakers Plan Big For Okafor, Towns

The Los Angeles Lakers found gold in a pot of ping-pong balls at the end of their worst season ever. Now comes the easy part. Wait for the Minnesota Timberwolves to draft Duke’s Jahlil Okafor or Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns and then take the other one with the No. 2 pick.

Which one ends up with the Lakers? Not even they know. For the first time in a while, uncertainty isn’t a bad thing for them.

“It’s a great day for the Lakers and their fans,” ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy said Wednesday on a conference call.

“We’re used to seeing them never have down years, and when they have had a down year in the past, they’ve immediately been able to solve their problem and get a Hall of Fame talent. This gives them the opportunity picking No. 2 to do that.”
