The Los Angeles Lakers have had a rough season. An extremely rough season that’ll end in April rather than in May or June with the team missing the playoffs for a second straight season.
With the Lakers struggling in historic fashion, the Los Angeles Clippers are taking full advantage of their division rival’s woes. The Clippers took a shot at the Lakers adding a certain controversial clip into their blooper reel at the Staples Center, via ESPN’s Arash Markazi:

Back on Feb. 22, the Lakers were able to come out on top in an overtime thriller against the visiting Boston Celtics. The win snapped a seven-game skid and sparked a what would be three straight wins.
Unfortunately, following the win over the Celtics, a few of the Lakers veterans took their on-court celebration a bit too far. Jeremy Lin was getting interviewed on the floor by Mike Trudell of Lakers.com and was interrupted by Nick Young, Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer.
All of this nonsense was caught on video and did the rounds on social media. Not only were the Lakers thrown under the bus by many for the lapse in judgement following the win over the Celtics, but even Kobe Bryant reacted to the celebration during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Kobe didn’t say a word about the ill-advised celebration of his teammates, but his silence and the look on his face was enough to show he clearly wasn’t happy about it.[divide]
