With 25 seconds left in the 3rd quarter against the Bulls, the Lakers got their first lead of the game on a reverse layup from Kobe Bryant and looked to have the momentum to build on it to take a rare win on the road. But just like the season so far, the Lakers could not stop themselves from tripping over their own foot and lost yet another opportunity to climb out of the hole they've dugged themselves.
At 17-24 and already officially halfway through a disappointing season, the probability of making the playoffs gets dimmer and dimmer for the Lakers. By this stage in the season, this team was supposed to be already making their mark. And by All-Star weekend, the Lakers were expected to be a serious playoff team that's probably sitting in the #4 or #5 spot in the west. Instead, the Lakers are still scratching their heads trying to figure out how to put it all together.
We can all agree to disagree to what led to all of the frustrations, but one thing is evident and imminent, something has to change.no comments
