Lakers Deserve Better

The Lakers' opening week was even more difficult for them than we had anticipated.

Although we didn't have big expectations for the Lakers this season, wow, their first week was much harder for them than we had anticipated.

Los Angeles is making an appalling 21.2% of its three-point shots through three games—all of which were losses—a figure so horrendous that it makes you pause and think. 

To put that into perspective, even Charles Barkley, the worst three-point shooter in history, hit a better percentage of his attempts (26.6%) over the course of his career. 

Of course, that was back in the 1980s and 1990s, a time when players attempted three-point shots significantly less frequently and with much lower accuracy than they do now.

The average number of threes made by these Lakers each game is eight.
