The Lakers have been struggling this week and that is putting it nicely. They have lost five games in a row and their injured key players might not be returning any time soon. The Lakers lost to the two best teams in the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat, which is expected.
Given the injury situation, head coach Mike D’Antoni has done an impressive job so far, but this season has been painful to watch. At this point, most Lakers’ fans are looking towards the future and hopefully the Lakers are lucky enough to land a high lottery pick.
Check it all out in our top 10 tweets of the week.
1. I think Greg Oden checked into the game.
Why is LeBron James’s dad in the game?

2. Maybe Mike D’Antoni isn’t the problem after all.
That this Lakers roster isn’t down 40 in every game is a testament to D’Antoni. Yeesh.

3. The third quarter has not been nice to the Lakers.
Don’t worry guys. The Lakers have always been known for their classic 3rd quarters.
