Lakers set foundation for future in another miserable season

LOS ANGELES (AP) After years of upheaval and embarrassment, the Los Angeles Lakers are making progress. With a talented young core and stability on the coaching staff and in the front office, this proud franchise has begun the climb back to championship contention.

At least that's what the Lakers are telling themselves after the worst four-year stretch in team history came to a merciful end this week.

Los Angeles finished 26-56 in its first season under new coach Luke Walton. That record is the Lakers' best since their last playoff season in 2013, but it also reflects the current team's sharp decline from a 10-10 start to the season.
