If you’re a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers then Sunday night’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans was just another example of how poor this season has been.
From awful defense to record-high turnovers and awful offense, the Lakers were bad for so many reasons.
It’s impossible to sum up the whole game with just one play but if you had to try, this pass from DeAndre Jordan would be a pretty good way to do it.
DeAndre Jordan cleared up any confusion with the “my bad.” Maybe the best example of accountability from the Lakers this season. https://t.co/IvAruynNw3

While being down 87-59 to a team that is sitting towards the very bottom of the Western Conference, Jordan threw a pass that was absolutely bonkers and way off the mark and not worthy of being in the NBA.
At least he took credit for his mistake and called out “my bad” afterward.
Will it get any better for the Lakers?
Fans of the Lakers already had enough on their minds going into Sunday’s game.
The team is ninth in the West with a record that is below .500 and far, far worse than it should be.
Right now, some are afraid they won’t even make it through the NBA Play-In Tournament.
Remember, this was supposed to be a team that was going all the way to the Finals and now there is concern they won’t even make it to the first round of the playoffs.
There is always a new low for this team – they have fallen again and again to other squads they should have beaten – but their collapse on Sunday night is definitely as bad as it’s gotten.
If anyone still had hopes of LA having a strong postseason this year, those dreams died last night at the hands of the Pelicans.
