The Los Angeles Lakers are 10-11 this season and the Laker fans are upset. This is a team that was expected to be the favorite in the Western Conference and instead has played poor basketball and lost to teams they have nothing to lose against.
The Lakers have had one of the easiest fixtures in the league to date this season and are still below 500 levels. Excellence is expected of purple and gold and it is extremely worrying to see the team play like this while other teams thrive.
The frustration seemed to boil over after Friday night when the Lakers lost in triple overtime to the Sacramento Kings. Angry fans have had enough and the fan base’s desire to fire the Frank Vogel team has gained momentum.
