"The NBA is unmistakably better when the Lakers are good."

Last night ended up being a pretty good Tuesday night, according to Clay Travis. We had some NHL Hockey, the Warriors took a poop on San Antonio, and we learned that the NBA might have some added intrigue in the coming years.

The Celtics ended up with the first pick in the draft and would be foolish to pass on Markelle Fultz, and the Lakers ended up with BIG BALLER BRAND!!!! 

LaVar and Lonzo are coming to Los Angeles, and make no mistake about it, the NBA is a lot more fun when the Lakers are relevant.

"The Lakers are the straw that stirs the LA sports drink."

Take a listen to the audio below from Clay Travis, and check out what the NBA has in store for the next decade or so. It's Celtics, it's Lakers, and it's back.
