The Los Angeles Lakers are currently in the driver's seat to acquire Anthony Davis, who famously asked out of New Orleans this week. But if they're going to dethrone the Golden State Warriors in the NBA penthouse, they'll need to give LeBron James more than just one superstar teammate. And you know who's a free agent this summer? One Klay Thompson. Take it away, Laker fans:

Yes, a reasonably loud contingent of Purple and Gold fans at Oracle Arena in Oakland stated their desires to bring the son of former Laker Mychal Thompson to LA.
Hey, you gotta shoot your shot. But really, why would Klay ever want to leave the Dubs? They've got a terrific chance to win their third straight title and fourth in five years. The guy is basically never counted on to put the team on his back and go off (even though he's fully capable of doing so). He's truly in the perfect situation.
But it's good to have goals. Keep dreaming, Laker fans.
