It's at the point where you tune into a Lakers game to see if they're going to lose, instead of the other way around.
Now that Twitter has given everyone a national microphone, a loss to the Cavaliers will never go unnoticed—especially under the circumstances.
Mike Greenberg has a feeling, and it has nothing to do with the Lakers coming together, battling adversity and winning a championship.
It's early, much can change, but I'm starting to think #Lakers season is going to be one of those disasters they write books about later.— Mike Greenberg (@Espngreeny) December 12, 2012
I hate to say it but the back-court perimeter defense isn't going to get any better when Steve Nash returns.
Getting a reminder of how great Kyrie Irving is. Clinic versus Lakers.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) December 12, 2012
Grantland's Rembert Browne has a wise suggestion for the Lakers. It involves the Mighty Ducks, Keenan Thompson and potentially a knuckle-puck.
The Lakers need to go play street hockey with Russ Tyler and his older brother's friends or something.— Rembert Browne (@rembert) December 12, 2012
Tell us how you really feel.
Lakers trash! Im embarrassed to be a fan at this moment— Renz(@renz360) December 12, 2012
A stat like this illustrates the lack of offensive balance. This isn't to say it's Kobe Bryant's fault, rather that others must assert themselves. Or maybe it's Kobe's fault.
Lakers are now 1-10 this season when Kobe scores 30 or more this season.— Eye on Basketball (@EyeOnBasketball) December 12, 2012
So what you're trying to say Jarrod, is that you don't like Mike D'Antoni?
The @lakers have a many issues; Mike D'Antoni is their biggest. They won't reach their potential with him as their coach. Big mistake in LA— Jarrod N Rudolph (@JRudolphSports) December 12, 2012
It appears as if @EvilMikeTomlin has a source claiming the Lakers are looking to explore the mid-season, free-agent market. Still not sure this acquisition would be able to run D'Antoni's system.

Ladies and gentlemen, Doug Ellin, creator of HBO's Entourage:
Lakers are like Lindsay Lohan at a club. A different kind of disaster every night.— Doug Ellin (@mrdougellin) December 12, 2012
How many sprints would they owe if this actually happened?
My Lakers need coach Carter— Tito M.™ (@TitoLA24) December 12, 2012
"Hey coach, can you diagnose the Lakers' issues offensively and explain this downward spiral?"
D'Antoni on Lakers: "Right now, we're all screwed up."— KEVIN DING (@KevinDing) December 12, 2012
Mike D'Antoni's fanbase is starting to dwindle. It appears to be 300 pounds lighter than it was yesterday.
D'Antoni wouldn't challenge the stars in NY and he wouldn't do it in La either #Soft— Warren Sapp (@WarrenSapp) December 10, 2012
To cap things off, Mike D'Antoni loses his cool with the media—already.
ESPN's Mike Hill on the Lakers possible interest in free-agent Delonte West. Cue the double-drum tap and symbol.
If the Lakers bring in Delonte West with Metta World Peace already there....they really WILL need Phil.......Dr Phil!!— Mike Hill (@MikeHillESPN) December 12, 2012
Hopefully the Lakers knew not to check their mentions last night. They probably didn't get any "good job, good effort" tweets.
