Remember the LA Lakers?
One of the most famous NBA teams in history, who boasted some of the greatest basketball players to ever grace the court, the likes of Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neale, Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson, and Kobe Bryant.
Well, they’ve been going through a rough patch for a good six-seven years now, and if we’re being honest, they’re fucking shithouse.
Instead of the likes of Shaq and Kobe, the Lakers are now made up of a bunch of blokes who sound like mid-1990’s R’n’B singers, like D’Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle.
Today, the Lakers reached peak shitness, recording the worst loss in their history against an equally terrible Dallas Mavericks unit, going down 122-73.
The 49-point defeat only narrowly trumps their previous worse losses at 48-points -- most recently 123-75 against Utah in March last year.
To highlight the plight that the Lakers find themselves in, only two players managed to reach double figures in the points column (Lou Williams  and Jordan Clarkson ) in a game they would have expected to be competitive in, as Dallas had recorded two less wins this season than the Lakers.
To rub further salt into the festering wound that is the LA Lakers right now, they also recorded their lowest points tally in a quarter (11), the lowest in a first half (33), and ultimately the lowest ever in a game.
Things haven’t been this bad for Lakers fans in a long time, and further emphasize how shit they really are, it was 11 years ago today that Kobe Bryant dropped 81 points against Toronto.
I’ll repeat; on this day 11 years ago, Kobe scored eight more points than the collective 2017 LA Lakers could muster up against the Mavs.
They now sit bottom of the Western Conference, with only the Brooklyn Nets recording a worst win/loss ratio in the entire NBA -- and the Nets would battle to beat the Cairns Taipans right now.
Luckily all the blokes you know who supported them in the Kobe years now have Golden State Warrior jerseys emblazoned with ‘Curry’ on the back of them…
