The Los Angeles Lakers' defense summed up in 15 seconds.

The 2012-2013 NBA season hasn't been too nice to the Lakers since the beginning. After acquiring two All Stars over the summer to join forces with another pair of All Stars, the Lakers were sure favorites to win the Championship. Fast forward 3 months later, they are 17-25, riddled with injuries, players are unhappy and no one knows what to do. It's simple just to say their issues are dependent on defense because they are ranked 20th in the league in defensive rating, allowing an average of 107 points a game to their opponents, but there are definitely problems that goes beyond their struggles on the court. Poor Steve Nash was left alone to fend for himself.

Even Kobe, who has been surprisingly optimistic so far this season, has finally broken. BROKEN.

Soak in it Laker fans, this is the face of a man drowned in sorrow. Once the Lakers fail to make the playoffs, which will happen because they have tough schedule ahead of them and will need to win the next 31 of their upcoming 40 games, just to secure a playoff spot. The majestic Kobe will crumble and the inner pathological monster in him will crawl out. Killing every single one of his teammates, and coaches before taking away his own life. Okay, that won't happen but there will be changes in the organization, hopefully it doesn't involve duffel bags.
