If you're a Lakers fan, I don't know what to tell you. They still haven't come up with a viable solution for going gray, and those hair-loss replenishers just don't work very well.
Last night's game was brutal. I shouldn't have to tell you that. Twitter did that for me.
These tweets pretty much sum up the weirdness of this whole situation.

Thunderous boos from the Staples Center crowd with the Lakers down 18. You'd think they'd be used to the annual tail-whipping by Bobcats.— Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) December 19, 2012
I won't be the first to say that this is the wrong formula for long-term success. It hasn't even been conducive to short-term success.
Lakers finished 45-37. RT @espnstatsinfo: Kobe's streak of 7 straight games with 30+ points is his longest since a 9-game streak in 2006.— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) December 19, 2012
Look, we found a true believer!
wow the Lakers won by 1 pt. Trade the whole roster anyway— Flex (@felixflexin) December 19, 2012
It's going to be weird when the Lakers and Bobcats are sitting next to each other at the NBA lottery pretty soon.
Lakers could use another lockout. They only had to play the Bobcats once in the 66-game season last year.— J.A. Adande (@jadande) December 19, 2012
Yes, Vlade Divac was traded for Kobe Bryant. That happened.
This just in from Vlade Divac: " I told you the Lakers made a bad deal."— Peter Vecsey (@PeterVecsey1) December 19, 2012
We needed at least one sarcastic Jets tweet in here, and it comes from Doug Gottlieb. Real shocker.
Apparently the Bobcats used the same ball as the Jets on their last possession— Doug Gottlieb (@GottliebShow) December 19, 2012
Numbers don't lie. Neither do records.
they've lost 11 straight, man RT @mattwilmers: stop acting like its such a big deal, the bobcats aren't THAT terrible this year— Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) December 19, 2012
Still trying to understand this, but I think I agree with it.
RT @afigman: You know Kobe knows MJ is watching. You also know he knows we know he knows MJ is watching.— Got 'Em Coach (@GotEm_Coach) December 19, 2012
How long has Kobe been waiting to use this line?
Kobe: "I'm just hoping this Benjamin Button thing doesn't wear off"— Benjamin Hochman (@nuggetsnews) December 19, 2012
Yeah this was just silly on Darius Morris' part:
Still laughing at Darius Morris trying to cut to the basket from the weakside corner, as if Kobe was actually going to pass him the ball.— Mike Prada (@MikePradaSBN) December 19, 2012
A win is a win. But last night, the Lakers' win over the Bobcats was as close to a loss as a win can get.
