Los Angeles Lakers: Time to Hit Panic Button After Third Straight Loss?

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost three straight games to the Utah Jazz, Indiana Pacers and now the Memphis Grizzlies, and we have to wonder if something is wrong in "LA LA Land."

The Lakers won their second-straight NBA title last season, and after they started this season 8-0, many thought that this team was back and better than ever.

We were thinking "three-peat."

Then Kobe Bryant and company dropped back-to-back games to the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns, but we can't expect the Lakers to go undefeated.

Five more wins, and we jumped back on the Lakers bandwagon, but then things took a turn for the worse.

So is this three-game losing streak cause for concern, or are we being too hard on the champs?

Let's take a look at both sides of the argument and decide if now is the time to panic.
