Trying to succinctly sum up all of the problems with the Los Angeles Lakers is no easy task.
The sad truth is that there are so many things plaguing the team that entire essays could be written about them.
Some people are only coming up a little short while others are really dropping the ball.

Kendrick Nunn is sadly part of that latter group.
Many people were very excited when Nunn returned to the team but, so far, he hasn’t been the difference-maker that people expected.
He has only scored more than 10 points once and has put up zero points in four different games.
Nunn has not been playing well and it’s caused head coach Darvin Ham to rethink the lineup and make adjustments that he didn’t want to.
Nunn Doing Nothing
If you paid attention to the Lakers last season and their troubled year, you probably heard many fans saying how much better the squad would be if Nunn were playing.
The young player was on the bench all season long due to a knee injury and his return would herald a new era for the Lakers, they claimed.
Well, now Nunn is back and he’s not anywhere near where he needs to be.
In the season before his injury, Nunn scored 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.6 assists a game.
This season, those numbers are 5.8 points, 1.7 rebounds, and just 1 assist a game.
It is clear that Nunn has fallen off in a huge way – can he turn things around?
