The 2013-14 season has not been kind to the Los Angeles Lakers, and the NBA community has learned plenty about the struggling franchise through the first half of the season as a result.

Injuries, age, a lack of team chemistry and injuries have severely hindered what Lakerland has been able to accomplish this season, leading to immeasurable frustrations from the fanbase.

The first half of 2013-14 has been a nightmare scenario, as the Lakers are on pace to miss the playoffs for just the fifth time in franchise history since the organization moved to L.A. from Minneapolis in 1960-61.

Their 14-25 record is only trumped by the lowly Utah Jazz (13-27) in the Western Conference. Mike D’Antoni’s crew has lost six games in a row and nine of its past 10 contests overall.

Almost nothing has gone right for the Lakers so far, and it’s clearly time for management to figure out the future.
