At the start of the current NBA season, it was no secret that the Los Angeles Lakers were in a rebuilding phase and expected to struggle. Little did they know that their play on the court would have so few bright spots.
With that said, last night the Lakers lost their 10th straight game, tying the franchise record as the fell 101-82 to the Charlotte Hornets. The only person on the roster who had a fairly good game was Kobe Bryant, who scored 23 points on 8 for 18 shooting, along with 8 rebounds, one of his best performances of the season.
The other players on the team didn’t fair so well. Lou Williams missed 9 of 10 from the floor, while Nick Young, Brandon Bass and Roy Hibbert missed all of their shots. After the game, Bryant expounded on his disappointment with the team’s performance and gave his thoughts on how the younger players can improve.
The Navy SEALs have a way of taking guys to the bottom of the pool. Sometimes you’ve got to go to the bottom of the pool, man, and figure it out.
Currently sitting at 9-41, the Lakers have to get passed the Minnesota Timberwolves if they want to avoid setting the dubious record with the longest losing streak in franchise history.
