Kent Bazemore Believes Team Shouldn’t Be Ok With Moral Victories
[new_royalslider id=”211″]

When a team has been as decimated by injuries the way the Lakers have, it becomes easy to make excuses for their poor performances.

After another loss by more than 20 points, this time to the Oklahoma City Thunder, many fans were fine, remembering that the Lakers already upset the Thunder this past Sunday.

Kent Bazemore does not think the same way, however, and spoke on Time Warner Cable SportsNet about not being a fan of moral victories for this Lakers team:

With both Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash out for the remainder of the season, it would be easy for the team to give up, so it’s good to hear Bazemore saying things like this. Even with the roster depleted, there is no excuse for not giving an all-out effort and that is something that can not waver.

The Lakers do not have the talent to keep up with the elite teams of the NBA, but they do have some impressive wins this season over teams like the Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, and Golden State Warriors.

If the Lakers plan on upsetting a few more teams before the season ends, their effort and focus can not afford to drop, even a little bit.

With guys like Bazemore keeping a mindset like this, it seems unlikely that the Lakers will go down without a fight.
