I don't believe it's laziness. We're all lazy without motivation. Lakers lack motivation right now because even themselves don't believe that Pringles can lift them up. There's a lot of frustration in the game right now and it's not from offensive side. Missing a shot is fine, but seeing the other team crashing the defensive boards and running to the other end for the fast break is very demotivating.

It all comes down to defense. Lakers are too old to keep up with fast breaks and general defending. What they need is a system to rely on. Unfortunately, Pringles do not offer one. Often you will see Lakers missing a possession and the last line of defense is no where close to the half court line. There's no one to run back for defense. It might take me a few nights to explain their flaws in defense so I'll just stop here.

Just...defense...end of story.
