In other NBA news, the Los Angeles Lakers’ misery was confirmed on Friday night. They will not be heading to the playoffs, marking the sixth straight year where that has been said. We’ve all known that this has been coming for a while now, but this is only confirmation of it as it has become mathematically official.
The 111-106 loss at home to the Brooklyn Nets is only the 11th time in the history of the franchise that they have missed the postseason, underling the plight they are in currently. There is thought to be one way out of this hole: bringing in legitimate stars to surround LeBron James. Anything less is surely not enough.
