It’s no secret that the Lakers are going through their problems and they have the whole basketball world talking about (and laughing at) them. But do they compare to what the Miami Heat went through the first year LeBron James and Chris Bosh came to town? LeBron and Wade don’t seem to think so. And they’re probably right.
“No one will ever be able to compare what we went through,” James said. “Even though they’re not winning and they’re losing a lot of games, it’s still nowhere near what we went through.
“Yeah, right. That level of magnitude was nowhere near where ours was two years ago. Nothing. Nothing compares to it.”
“Because of everything that happened in 2010 with off season signings, it was, automatically, just a lot of negative things that was said about us,” Wade said. “[Los Angeles] didn’t go through that at the beginning. They didn’t go through anything negative about bringing those guys together, so ours started off bad and it stayed bad for a while, and then we got better.”
Will the Lakers ever be able to pull it together like the Heat did? It’s hard to say, but after another loss last night to powerhouse OKC Thunder, it’s not looking too good…
