The Los Angeles Lakers being officially eliminated from the 2022 NBA post-season is going to be something that has the internet reeling for a few days. However, the work to recover from this and actually have a plan going forward will begin sooner rather than later for the Lakers.
The first step will be to analyze everything that went wrong. That will be a lengthy step considering everything that did go wrong for LA this season, but it is a start. While they work on that internally, the players and coaches need to come take responsibility for what many will consider a disastrous season.
Carmelo Anthony hasn’t shied away from that accountability in his interviews after the Phoenix Suns beat the Lakers to eliminate them.
