One of the Lakers’ most die-hard celebrity fans, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, is pleading for some changes to the struggling organization.
The famous musician posted a message for Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka on Twitter.
“Dear Rob Pelinka, do something now. Either blow it all up and rebuild, or mortgage the future to fix the lack chemistry and skill on this basketball team. Do not let another season meander its way down the drain, wasting the great Lebron James’ sunset of his career,” Flea wrote.
After failing to earn a postseason berth last year, the Lakers have started the 2022-23 season at 0-4 — dropping losses to the Warriors, Clippers, Trail Blazers and Nuggets.
Despite hopes that the current Lakers core of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook could turn things around, there’s been absolutely no progress so far this season.
The Lakers will look to turn things in the right direction with a matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves tomorrow night.
