The Los Angeles Lakers are one of the most storied franchises in sports. With 16 championships, 20 Hall of Famers, and a value of over one billion dollars there’s not many failures you can associate with the Lake Show. Well, except for the 2012-13 season. Despite last night’s victory over the Nets (capped by an classic dunk by Kobe Bryant), the Lakers are still three games under .500 and not in position to make the playoffs.
When you consider the fact that their starting line-up includes three future Hall of Famers and a former Defensive Player of the Year, this team should be at the very least a top-three seed in the West. Instead, they’re desperately trying to make sure all of these things don’t happen this spring. This isn’t the first time the Lake Show has failed to live up to expectations though. From "Tragic" Johnson's gaffes in the 1984 NBA Finals to trading for Kwame Brown, here are the Biggest Fails in Los Angeles Lakers History.
