Why the Los Angeles Lakers hit the 50 loss mark
isports web - almost 2 years
For only the fifth time in franchise history, the Los Angeles Lakers hit the half-century mark, in losses. With a loss to the Utah Jazz, the Lakers lost for the 50th time this season. This is the second consecutive year that the Lakers have hit this dismal mark in a stretch that has seen the franchise fall apart. The blame for this season could easily be placed on the injuries suffered throughout the year, most notably to Kobe Bryant and Julius Randle, but the real reason the Lakers have been so bad is that their roster is entirely comprised of role players.
The Lakers would actually be a decent team if they had a pair of go-to players. Everyone on their roster has a unique skill set that would compliment a star player on a complete team. The Lakers simply just do not have one of these players this year.
Nick Young is probably the closest thing the Lakers have to a go-to guy, but he is too consistent and constantly in the doghouse with his coach. “Swaggy P” is a fun
