The Lakers have been nothing short of utterly disappointing this season, and that means everyone around the NBA is going to take their shots at them.

Rockets radio play-by-play guy Craig Ackerman summed up the Lakers’ recent play in blunt fashion after the Lakers lost (again) on Tuesday night, this time in Houston. Howard missed a bunch of free throws down the stretch, and the now 8-10 Lakers blew a 10-point lead to the Rockets. Ackerman saw his chance to pile on – referencing Kobe’s recent public plea for teammate Pau Gasol to “put your big-boy pants on” -- and oh, did he pile on.
