NBA Tweets from Last Night: Twitter Reacts to Lakers Downward Spiral

The Lakers keep losing. This one came at the hands of the previously 4-17 Cleveland Cavaliers, which can only mean that Twitter was at full strength, ready to pounce.

It's at the point where you tune into a Lakers game to see if they're going to lose, instead of the other way around.

Now that Twitter has given everyone a national microphone, a loss to the Cavaliers will never go unnoticed—especially under the circumstances.

Mike Greenberg has a feeling, and it has nothing to do with the Lakers coming together, battling adversity and winning a championship.

I hate to say it but the back-court perimeter defense isn't going to get any better when Steve Nash returns.

Grantland's Rembert Browne has a wise suggestion for the Lakers. It involves the Mighty Ducks, Keenan Thompson and potentially a knuckle-puck.

Tell us how you really feel.

A stat like this illustrates the lack of offensive balance. This isn't to say it's Kobe Bryant's fault, rather that others must assert themselves. Or maybe it's Kobe's fault.

So what you're trying to say Jarrod, is that you don't like Mike D'Antoni?

It appears as if @EvilMikeTomlin has a source claiming the Lakers are looking to explore the mid-season, free-agent market. Still not sure this acquisition would be able to run D'Antoni's system.

Ladies and gentlemen, Doug Ellin, creator of HBO's Entourage:

How many sprints would they owe if this actually happened?

"Hey coach, can you diagnose the Lakers' issues offensively and explain this downward spiral?"

Mike D'Antoni's fanbase is starting to dwindle. It appears to be 300 pounds lighter than it was yesterday.

To cap things off, Mike D'Antoni loses his cool with the media—already.

ESPN's Mike Hill on the Lakers possible interest in free-agent Delonte West. Cue the double-drum tap and symbol.

Hopefully the Lakers knew not to check their mentions last night. They probably didn't get any "good job, good effort" tweets.
