7. 131-92 Blowout Loss in Game 6 of the 2008 Finals vs. the Celtics
There's losing and then there's being emasculated by your rival with the NBA championship on the line. The latter happened to the Lakers in Game 6 of the 2008 NBA Finals. In Game 5, the Lakers had shown enough perseverance to force a Game 5 and prevent Boston from celebrating on the floor of the Staples Center. All of that perseverance went out the window in Game 6 though. The Celtics set a record for margin of victory in an NBA Finals-clinching game (39 points). Kevin Garnett losing it during his postgame interview was just a bit of salt added on the wound.
