LeBron James wore his frustration on his face during last night’s Los Angeles Lakers matchup with the Toronto Raptors. At one point, King James could be seen mouthing profanity as he watched his teammates flop around helplessly trying to pull in a rebound. The Lakers may as well move to Pennsylvania and become the Keystone Cops at this point.

Los Angeles has struggled to find any sort of team chemistry. Frustrations have run rampant throughout the roster. The Lakers are just not a good team this season, despite their star power.

The Lakers fell behind huge early and were not able to turn things around. A late run made the final score a little more respectable. LeBron and company walked out of Crypto.com Arena 114-103 losers in the end.

The loss dropped the Lakers to ten games below .500. The NBA playoffs are becoming more of a pipe dream than the certainty most fans believed them to be before the season kicked off. The boys in yellow will have to go on an incredible streak to even sniff the postseason.

LeBron James did contribute 30 points and 9 rebounds in the losing effort. It was not enough. It never seems to be enough.

The Lakers will have another stiff challenge coming their way this week. The team travels to face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. Most Lakers fans aren’t holding out much hope for a turnaround.
