Stop laughing at the Lakers for two seconds and give the Phoenix Suns a standing ovation


For those of you who were still awake when the Los Angeles Lakers sandcastle of a 2021-22 season finally washed away, we had a good time didn’t we? The jokes have been piling up all season with this new roster that improved on none of their weaknesses from last season and also had none of their strengths. Their implosion has been a delight for fans from the Bay Area to Miami, but that goes towards a problem the NBA has with the fans who consume their product. Many NBA fans are more concerned with creating Laker memes than focusing on the excellent basketball that has been played this season.
