Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers suffered an embarrassing double-digit loss to the Pelicans without Anthony Davis. This loss caused them to fall 3.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the merciless West.

Lebron signed for 4 years, with a player option in the 4th, so the Lakers have time to build something.
