The Los Angeles Lakers are 10-11 this season and Laker fans are upset. This is a team that was expected to be the favorites in the Western Conference and instead they have played poor basketball and have lost to teams that they have no business losing to.
The Lakers have had one of the easiest schedules in the league thus far this season and still have a sub-.500 level. Excellence is expected out of the purple and gold and seeing the team play like this, while other teams thrive, is extremely worrisome.
