How the Mighty Have Fallen

Tarik Black : @Lakers/Twitter

The 12-33 Lakers are, to put it kindly, a bit of a disaster right now. An injured Kobe Bryant is daydreaming about playing for Michael Jordan, Steve Nash is nowhere to be found and a defense-adverse player named Swaggy P has become the face of the franchise. On the bright side, coach Byron Scott is teaching the rookies a valuable lesson by making them carry dolls everywhere they go. 


Richard Sherman's Biggest Fan
