The Los Angeles Lakers can't catch a break. They are struggling to win games by going through a five-game losing streak, including the disappointing defeat against the Brooklyn Nets last night.
It was a very intense game until the last second, with the Lakers trying to catch up to the Nets, missing big chances in the final minute of the game. They ultimately lost a game against the team expected to face them in the Finals before the start of the 2021/22 season.
It hasn't been an easy campaign for the Purple and Gold, and the last couple of days have gotten worse given all the absences they have on the roster at this moment. Nobody is happy with this situation, but LeBron James tries to be in good spirits despite all the team's recent struggles.
Following the game against the Nets, The King explained that he tries to be patient with the team, but clarified he's not a very patient person. The current state of the team makes things hard for everybody, and LeBron is trying to cope with that keeping in mind that the team isn't complete.
"I'm not a very patient person... But without our head coach, just getting guys back, still missing a few, I just try to stay even-keeled... No one is going to feel sorry for us."
After a blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, James talked about teamwork, stating that they lack chemistry because of the little time they've played together.
Bron is still hopeful that the Lakers can turn things around and he's ready to help them however he can. Without Anthony Davis, things have gotten worse for the 17-time NBA champions. Following a painful loss to the Nets, the situation doesn't look that promising for the Californians.
Time will tell how the season ends for the Lakers. Still, fans are running out of patience, while LeBron is trying to keep it together and don't panic after two months of competition.
