Now this is just getting down right embarrassing. CBS Sports is reporting that several members of the Los Angeles Lakers — including star center Pau Gasol — woke up late as a result of the iPhone’s infamous alarm clock bug.
Perhaps lack of sleep is a good excuse for the lack of effort we’ve seen from the Lake Show as of late. Needless to say, Steve Jobs can’t be happy about this.
Sure, it’s okay for normal people to oversleep, but when your state’s flagship basketball team begins to feel the impact, you’ve got some real issues….
The other identified over-sleeper was reportedly Luke Walton, but Gasol — an integral part of the starting five — was by far the highest profile player seen yawning on the hardwood.
As a result Los Angeles lost to the Memphis Grizzlies by a score of 104-89. When asked how he planned to get the Lakers out of their recent funk, Lakers coach Phil Jackson replied, “I’ll sleep on it.”
Okay, so he didn’t really say that, but watching his team lethargically jog up and down the floor probably put him to sleep.
Hmm, maybe the Lakers should start reading iDB? Just saying…
