Lakers News: Mitch Kupchak Says Effort, Not Coaching Is Team’s Problem

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers-Press ConferenceThe Lakers are a team in disarray and people are looking for answers. Unfortunately, there are too many questions and not enough actions, leaving every person with an opinion the ability to share what they think is the main problem with this rapidly imploding team. Now, the man who constructed the team, Mitch Kupchak, has shared his thoughts with ESPN Los Angeles on what the problem with the Lakers has been this season.

“I’m a little bit concerned about our effort,” Kupchak said. “I’d like to see better effort on the court. When the ball is not bouncing your way, when shots aren’t going in, you just can’t seem to get a break, the one thing you can control on the court is your effort and loose balls and running the floor, defending, offensive rebounding.

This isn’t exactly a new sentiment, as most people have noticed a severe lack of effort from the team this season. One of the main problems with this team hasn’t been the fact that they’ve been losing, but that they’re losing to seemingly inferior teams that simply outworking them on the court.

Even in the games the team has lost, specifically the game against the San Antonio Spurs on January 9th, where the team has shown adequate effort the fans haven’t been as disheartened.

So, as the team continues the downward spiral, it seems that even the front office isn’t thrilled with the amount of effort being exerted on the basketball court.

Lovely.
