The Los Angeles Lakers are a train wreck.

We can't turn away, and they can't seem to stop themselves from careening into oblivion.

The most troubling part? Everyone knows there's something wrong, but the franchise still seems dumbfounded as to what the actual issues are.

On this episode of Basketball by Association, NBA Lead Writer Jonathan Wasserman joins NBA Assistant Editors Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes to diagnose just what ails the league's premier franchise.

More importantly, they'll wrestle with how to stop this disaster before it's too late.
