The Los Angeles Lakers’ season officially came to an end on Tuesday night after they suffered a disheartening 121-110 loss to the Phoenix Suns. This was a long time coming for a hapless LeBron James-less Lakers side but it did not make the moment any easier for LA fans everywhere.
To add insult to injury, even NBA TV had some fun at the expense of the Lakers with a hilarious scoreboard malfunction during the game:
Even NBATV is clowning the Lakers with the scoreboard 😭

To be honest, I am not entirely sure if that was an honest mistake by the graphics team or if NBA TV was intentionally trolling the Lakers for their misfortune. Either way, it was a pretty hilarious moment for Suns fans and unfortunately for LA supporters, a truly depressing sight.
This is pretty much how the season has gone for the Lakers. The silver lining here is that at least the suffering is finally over. I think. Now it’s time to officially start thinking about next season. That’s going to be tough as well so it’s not as if the offseason is going to be much easier for Laker nation. Brace yourselves Lakers fans, it’s going to be quite a ride for you guys this summer.
