Lakers News: Jordan Hill Says Lakers Still Fighting For Pride

With the Los Angeles Lakers 23-46 and eliminated from playoff contention, it naturally becomes difficult to continue playing hard, night in and night out. Considering the amount of injuries and having numerous players on one-year contracts, it’s easier for the Lakers to spiral downhill.

However, Jordan Hill believes the Lakers still have one thing to fight for this season. According to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, Hill and the Lakers will continue to play for Lakers pride:

The Lakers are arguably the premier franchise of the NBA. Just putting on the purple and gold uniform brings a sense of pride and importance. Regardless of who wears the jersey, everyone knows that it means to be a Laker. The history of this franchise requires a lot of anyone who joins this team and regardless of how bad the record is, the Lakers can not go down without a fight. Players such as Hill, Jordan Farmar and Pau Gasol have been with the Lakers long enough to inherit the pride that comes with joining this franchise and it seems as if they are passing that down to the younger guys.

If the Lakers play with the passion, energy and pride that comes with being a Laker, then this team will continue to be fun to watch and tough to beat on a nightly basis. There is no doubt that Hill will not allow the team to go down without competing.
