An undermanned Los Angeles Lakers team dropped to 2-8 on the season with a 139-116 loss to the Utah Jazz on Monday without Lebron James on the court. It was their third straight loss, all by 14 points or more.
Yet, as bleak as things might seem ranked 14th out of 15 teams in the Western Conference through 10 games played, Lakers coach Darvin Ham vowed a turnaround is on the way.
“I would say this, man. And write it, quote it, however,” Ham told reporters.
“This may be happening now at the outset of what we’re trying to force to be a culture change in terms of getting us back to being highly competitive on a highly consistent basis, but it’s not going to always be like this. We’re going to turn the corner. I didn’t come here to lose. They didn’t bring me here to lose.”
Ham said the rocky start was to be expected for a team experiencing so much turnover from a year ago, and some injury misfortunate, thus far.
“There is a process involved where we have to go through tough times. Like, I want to bottle this up. I want to embrace it. I want to have it and store it so when things are turned around and we get too comfortable and we start complaining about some problems that are not even necessarily problems — problems that winning teams go through. I want to be able to reflect on these times.”
