Dwight Howard, Danny Green pick all-time L.A. starting 5

Lakers, Dwight Howard, Danny Green

Danny Green and Dwight Howard recently joined Taylor Rooks for a wide-ranging interview at a zoo for reptiles (that’s right). During their discussion, the two teammates were asked to pick an all-time Lakers starting lineup.

Picking an all-time starting five for the Lakers is a tall order, as the team has had so many great players over the course of its history. Still, Green and Howard were able to make their picks in a timely fashion.

Dwight started with his all-time five first:

“At point guard, Magic Johnson,” the Lakers big said. “Two guard, Kobe Bryant. Three, I gotta go LeBron (James). Four, Shaq (Shaquille O’Neal). Five is Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar).

Howard’s picks were solid, but Green was asked to make his list a bit different:

“I’ll take a different route,” Green said as he started his list. “I’m gonna go with Magic at one, Kobe at two, LeBron at three, A.D. (Anthony Davis) at four, and a lot of people aren’t going to like this, but I’m going to go with Big Game James (James Worthy) at five.”

Green and Howard joined the Lakers prior to the start of this season. So far, they’ve proven to be solid acquisitions, as Los Angeles has played its way to a Western Conference-best 49-14 overall record. Furthermore, The Lake Show clinched its first playoff berth since 2013 with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks earlier this month. As a result, many experts are viewing the team as a favorite to win this year’s championship.

However, the 2019-20 regular season is currently suspended due to ongoing concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. At this point, it’s not clear when play might resume.
