It is evident that the Los Angeles Lakers are not at all what most of the world expected them to be, especially with the amount of experience and skill that their players are able to bring to the game. We’ve seen LeBron James completely dominate the floor like he’s back in his 20s. We’ve seen glimpses of what the Lakers “could be.” But her fate played out quite differently.
In an unfortunate battle, the Lakers lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-124. Throughout the game, the Wolves players weren’t the friendliest of opponents to the purple and gold players.
After being rounded up by them, point guard Russell Westbrook spoke about the incident, saying: “I honestly don’t care, maybe other guys. You didn’t speak to me. You’ve spoken to individual guys, but the trash talk doesn’t bother me. Nobody over there has achieved anything in this league.”

Westbrook had many lows during the 20-point loss to Wolves. Karl Anthony and Patrick Beverley shot at one of Brodie’s misses. Cities had made repeated gestures towards the crowds that night. Wolves are definitely having a much better season than the Lakers, but were they entitled to do what they did that night?
According to ESPN Stephen A Smith, the Wolves players were wrong. He fired back at the Timberwolves for not having achieved all that much in the last two decades. He said, “To mock him like that, I was like, ‘Damn, that’s kind of classless. You could do better, especially if you’re from Minnesota and have done almost nothing in the past two decades. You are having a good season now, congratulations to you. But damn it was a bit over the top, a bit ignoble I’d say.”
Karl Anthony Towns claps back at Stephen A Smith for calling him ‘classless’
Being called “classless” would not feel good on the person in the discussion. The self-proclaimed “greatest shooting center of all time,” Karl Anthony Towns, retorted Smith and took offense at what was said. “Now that we’re having some fun with the game, we’re classless, right? Is that what he said? Classless? It’s cool though, I get it. It was cool when people did that (proceeds to emulate Westbrook’s Rock the Baby act) though, in people’s eyes, right? It was cool, wasn’t it? Alright, things came back to bite.
The ongoing situation could only make the play-in tournament all the more interesting. The Lakers and Timberwolves are expected to mate in the tournament to determine the eighth seed. Before that, the Lakers have to face the 10thth set to advance further against the 8th and 7th seed.
