The Los Angeles Lakers are having a rough preseason in terms of winning. The 2020 NBA champions have lost all four of their preseason games so far. Most recently, the Lakers, without LeBron James, were beaten by 29 points by the Phoenix Suns.

According to Lakers great Robert Horry, there is some basis for panic even though the season is yet to begin. “I’m about like 15-20% panicking,” the seven-time NBA champion said. “I want to see them play more. I know people ‘Oh we can just turn it on.’ You can’t just turn it on when you haven’t been playing together. You haven’t played one quarter together. You haven’t played a game together.

“Preseason games are like practice, like I said earlier. But you got to have those reps with one another to get to know each other. I know you’re doing this in practice and you’re able to do great things in practice. But you are going to get some guys that will probably never step on the court and practice.

“You got to go against the competition to understand if the things you’re doing in practice is going to work. So that’s why I would love to see these guys get out there play a couple of games in preseason.”

The Lakers have two more preseason games left to play — home game against the Warriors and an away game against the Kings.
