Saturday night I got to see the Los Angeles Lakers play for the first time this season. LA’s roster currently includes LeBron James (to be fair, LeBron didn’t play Saturday), Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rando, DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard, and Carmelo Anthony. (Seriously, how did this happen?) I know none of these guys is 25 anymore, but these are like seven of the greatest basketball players this century.
How do these guys ever lose?
In Saturday’s game at Portland the Lakers were down 22 points after the first quarter and ended up losing by 15. They’re 5-5 right now, good for 10th place in the Western Conference. Even bad grandpas gotta be better than that!
