Or at least since I started watching and being a dedicated fan since 1992. Yes there have been laker teams with worst records but I donít recall the gap between expectation and reality being so huge with any other laker team. Even the Steve nash/Dwight Howard lakers picked it up at the end of the season and looked credible before Kobeís season (career?) ending injury. And itís not just that this years lakers failed, itís HOW they failed. Blowing leads, choking in crunch time, all those low effort quarters, our joke of a coach. Humiliation on a nightly basis. As retarded, entitled and low IQ as our fan base is, we still deserve better.
