Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Lakers Fall Again, Panic Ensues

After losing their fourth game of the season on Wednesday night to the Utah Jazz, the Lakers took to the practice floor today to try and figure out a solution to their many problems. Not only has the team been losing, but they’ve been getting beaten fairly handily. Other than their win over the Detroit Pistons, who have the worst record in the NBA, the Lakers haven’t even come close to winning the other four games.

Following the loss, fans were clamoring for head coach Mike Brown’s job on Twitter and other social media. There’s no doubt that the coach is feeling the heat, but the team is trying to figure out what’s going on before they take the floor again tomorrow night against the Golden State Warriors.

With fans getting more and more uneasy as the team continues to struggle, here’s the most popular stories from Lakerland this afternoon.
