Tuesday night – like many nights that came before – was a bad one for fans of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Still, it was painful to see a team that won the Finals just a couple of seasons ago sink to the 11th seed in the West after yet another defeat.
A viral image of James and Davis is only making matters much worse for LA’s faithful followers.

The picture in question shows James and Davis laughing it up on the sidelines as their team loses.
Of course, the two superstars are permitted to have fun but some fans are upset to see these leaders seemingly unbothered by the state of the Lakers.
But maybe they’re enjoying themselves because they know there is nothing to be done right now.
Throwing In The Towel
The Lakers are now the 11th seed in the West and are officially out of contention for the play-in tournament.
Doesn’t that mean that James and Davis should be fighting tooth and nail to get their team back into the 10th seed?
Yes, but they should really be focused on getting healthy so they can return to the team and help them rebound and reclaim the tenth spot.
If they can make the play-in tournament and win a few games, they could enter the playoffs.
Although their chances of going far in the postseason are very, very slim, the team still has to try.
At this point, they should be fighting hard for even the smallest victories.
James and Davis can take a few minutes to laugh together but then they need to get back to work.
