To say the Los Angeles Lakers' start to the 2015-16 NBA season has been underwhelming would be an understatement.

The famous franchise is 1-6 and their only win of the campaign came against the Brooklyn Nets, a franchise who sit on an even less impressive 0-7 record.


But, while things might only get worse from here on out for the Lakers, they can take solace in the fact that they've probably already served up the worst shot of the season. A video of Marcelo Huertas' impersonation of a manic fifth-grader in last night's loss to Miami can be seen below.

Huertas best prepare himself for a 'Shaqtin-A-Fool' nomination because you know the big man has this video bookmarked:

In an attempt to give the Brazilian's display of ineptitude some context, he was facing a shot clock violation. Still, that is no excuse for the five-second monstrosity that was served up last night.

Fortunately, though, because the extravagant over-the-head shot (complete with heel flick) didn't actually reach the basket, the 32-year-old does avoid it going down as an official shot.

Worse before it gets better

The Heat weren't willing to take it easy on Huertas, either. Later in the game he was shown up on the defensive end by Tyler Johnson.

All in all, it was a night that the Brazilian, and the Lakers, will want to forget in a hurry as Miami ran out comfortable 101-88 winners.

The one silver lining? Byron Scott might be more inclined to get D'Angelo Russell on the floor for some much needed minutes in the future, rather than resting his hopes on an aging rookie point guard when Kobe's not around.
