The Lakers demolished the Warriors on Wednesday night, pulling off the 120-94 win in Staples Center. For most, beating the Warriors that way now is an alien and a weird feeling after they've been so good for so many years.

For LeBron James, he is not sympathetic towards their situation, as he expressed to Lakers beat writer Kyle Goon after the win.

The Warriors are a shell of their former selves without Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. After years of dominating the league together, they are unlikely to return to the Warriors this season.

The 2015 Cavaliers suffered a similar fate in the Finals that year. With Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love down and out for the count, LeBron James was forced to go into action pretty much on his own against the Warriors. Of course, they lost to the Dubs 4-2.

So, as the Warriors lose and struggle in the midst of their injuries, don't expect an ounce of sympathy from James. Besides, it seems unlikely that they had any for him when his team went down back in 2015.
