Either the Upper West's slogan is extremely accurate, or the people who came up with this ad weren't paying attention.

The Los Angeles Lakers' 2013-14 regular-season record of 27-55 was the franchise's worst mark since moving to Los Angeles in 1960. They finished 22 games out of the final playoff spot, which makes this ad very suspicious.

Judging by the restaurant's Facebook page and Twitter account, this was no accident. It looks like this was a planned trolling.

Everyone just has to kick the Lakers while they're down, apparently.
