The L.A. Lakers may have clinched the West’s top seed, but they haven’t exactly been playing like it since the bubble games began last month. After tonight’s 136-122 loss to Sacramento, they’re just 2-5 on the season with some pretty ugly losses.
Today’s game was especially concerning as, even without AD, one would expect a better showing by the Bron-led crew. Instead, both the Lakers and LeBron looked pretty rough — and Twitter had a lot to say about it.

Absolutely disgraceful performance. In all my years as a fan of this team, I have never seen a group of players so lazy and pathetic. I’m taking my fanhood to Houston where it looks they know how to run a basketball team.

Of course, there were plenty of fans showing their love and support for the Lakers, and there is plenty of reason to still keep your faith in the team moving forward.
But if this is how they’ve entered the postseason, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned. It seems like it will be an uphill battle for them from the jump, especially if they have to face off against Portland.
