The Los Angeles Lakers looked unbeatable ahead of the second round playoffs against the Houston Rockets. By the end of the game, they were battered and resigned to a 97-112 defeat on Friday, September 4. Harsh criticism followed as Lakers fans took to social media to slam LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Danny Green, and coach Frank Vogel. Almost every player on the court earned their wrath and barring the odd tweets that said the team would bounce back, almost a major chunk of it was criticism and some trolling.

"As a lifelong Laker fan please trade Lebron James. He is probably the most overrated player not only currently but also all time. He also gets carried by AD which is who we should build this team around and not this Lefraud guy," a fan wrote.



 

This was seconded by most fans. One wrote, "That seals the deal.I am no longer a Lakers fan.This team is a pure and utter embarrassment to the city of Los Angeles. I officially will not be renewing my plan next season nor will I watch on tv ever again. I’m going to the Clippers where they know how to run a basketball team."



 

One of the fans dissected the game, saying "My notes: 1. Frank Vogel’s rotations are terrible 2. AD was soft again 3. Tied in rebounds against a small ball team 4. KCP and Green need to be bullied again 5. Sign Lu Dort real quick to stop Harden."



 

And the frustration continued, as one disgruntled fan wrote, "I’m done with this team been watching since Kareem and I’ve never seen such trash I am done with this I will become a fan of the Detroit Pistons where they play real basketball and want to win this team is a embarrassment to my city and I will not associate with this trash."



 

There was some optimism though, as one fan wrote, "It’s just a warmup game. Lakers in 5.”



 

"1st game brah. They still gonna win the series," wrote another fan. 



 

"Now that the lakers got that game out of their system I have faith they will do better let’s go #LakeShow 4 straight it’s a dub," read one of the comments.



 

Will the Lakers bounce back in Game 2? We'll know on Sunday.
