But at least Anthony Davis has been back. And Davis admitted that things have been less-than-stellar lately.
“This is the lowest we’ve been in a while, at least in the past two years,” Davis told reporters. “But the only way is up and we really can’t get any lower than this, so we’ve just got to set a course, stay together.”
The Lakers are coming off a loss Sunday vs. the Raptors. Before that, they lost at home to the Kings. They currently sit in seventh in the Western Conference.
So if the season ended today, they would have to play in the play-in tournament. An idea that James suddenly doesn’t appear to favor.
“Whoever came up with that s*** needs to be fired,” said James, who re-aggravated a sprained ankle that caused him to miss 21 games.
Actually, with the way things have been going for the Lakers lately, they should be thankful for the extra seeds. Then again, as Davis said, they don’t expect to go anywhere but up at this juncture.
