Winning and losing is everything in sports. It can be the most obvious of things—such as the Los Angeles Lakers’ worst-ever loss record in franchise history at 27-55 for the 2013-14 season.

Or, it can be a win in the guise of a silver lining, such as getting into the NBA draft lottery by virtue of such a terrible record.

The Lakers did well on the night of June 26—selecting Julius Randle at the No. 7 slot and following that up by purchasing the rights to the Washington Wizards’ No. 46 draft pick and choosing Jordan Clarkson, a hyper-athletic ball-handling guard.

Clarkson led all Lakers in scoring during the Las Vegas Summer League.

The offseason continued with free agency and the choosing of a new head coach in Byron Scott—the announcement of which took a full three months to come to fruition.
