The Los Angeles Lakers need to eat Skittles before games to win.

Via: @cjzero
In the NBA, the formula for success is simple and the Lakers, as a franchise is a living prove of it. The Gold and Purple was always successful because they have mastered this formula. It's easy, they put great players together and let them go to work. On the surface, it would seem like things would fall into place on their own, but Championships are not won by just purchasing multiple All Star players. It obviously takes more than that, and what better example of this, than the 2012-2013 Lakers. This team, built over the summer, put four future hall of famers together, all playing for a common goal. Expectations were high, and the Championship was supposed to be a sure-win. But after three months, those odds are looking bleak. The Lakers have only 39 more games left in their schedule, sitting at a record of 18-25, playoffs might even be out of the question. Evidently, this team has more than just problems on the court, and according to Dwight Howard, the negativity among teammates, fans and media is one of the issues. Coincidentally, he knows how to fix them as well. 

From ESPN:
"I'm just talking about negativity in general," Howard said. "That's like a dark cloud, and the more you feed into the negativity, the bigger it gets. So, we have to change that and we have to believe. For all the fans and everybody who support the Lakers, believe. Yes, we're struggling. Yes, it's not the best time to be a Laker fan or a Laker player, but we will get out of it. There's a rainbow on the other end. We just got to make sure we get to it. I don't know if we got to eat some more Skittles or whatever it may be, but we got to find a way."

Yep, the problem with the Lakers was just that they weren't eating Skittles before basketball games and not totally because of their terrible defense. Okay.

    plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content

    that come to feel that their vow of abstinence is strictly a particular challenge, as opposed
    to a community one. Many people prefer to buy a diamond promise ring from Super - Jeweler, which is considered one of the best,
    in terms of quality, prices and service. With the discovery of smaller-than-1-carat diamonds, the diamond industry started to market eternity rings and promise rings, featuring tiny diamonds around the shank.
