Mike Muscala reflects on trade, injuries and disappointment with the Lakers

LOS ANGELES — He doesn’t have Instagram, and he hasn’t tweeted in months. For Mike Muscala, withdrawing from social media is probably a blessing. Since he joined the Lakers in February just before the the trade deadline, the deal that brought the 27-year-old in exchange for young, promising center Ivica Zubac has been hammered. He was brought in to space the floor and hopefully help spark a playoff run, but as both those ambitions fell off, Muscala has become a target of, and ammunition for, wit...
