    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Remember when Mike D’Antoni just played small and forced you to adjust to him? He doesn’t have the horses for that in Los Angeles so he will go big against Portland with Pau Gasol retuning and starting next to Chris Kaman.

Chris Kaman (personal issue) still hasn't caught up to the team yet. Supposed to land in MKE any minute now. A true game-time decision.— Mike Bresnahan (@Mike_Bresnahan) March…

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Knicks fans, you should not watch this. That is all the Lakers’ buckets from their third quarter, 51-point explosion on the Knicks Tuesday night.

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

    jordan hill

    Jordan Hill has slipped down Mike D’Antoni’s Lakers’ rotations behind even Chris Kaman because… actually I don’t have a good reason for you. Hill is not skilled offensive player, but what he brings is energy and the Lakers could often use that. D’Antoni’s Lakers rotations have been interesting this season. We’ll go with interesting. The…

  9. Kobe Bryant not pleased Chris Kaman laid down on Lakers’ bench

    Feb 11, 2014, 11:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Chris Kaman

    Kobe Bryant, if you haven’t been paying attention, tends to take basketball somewhat seriously. For years, the Lakers have cast off players who couldn’t near Kobe’s level of competitiveness and focus. (Nobody can match it.) But forced to fill out the roster with low-paid players during a transitional season, the Lakers couldn’t be as choosy…

    The Lakers were already shorthanded heading into Wednesday’s contest against the Cavaliers, but by the time it was over, they didn’t have a combination of qualified and healthy players to even field a five-man team. L.A. led by as many as 29 points before holding on for the 119-108 victory, but things were a bit…

  11. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

    Dec 19, 2013, 10:29 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Even with Kobe Bryant, the playoffs were a long shot for the Lakers this season — their defense was slipping, and their offense was not going to carry them far enough in a deep Western Conference. Kobe Bryant’s injury — out six weeks now with a fracture of tibial plateau in in his left knee…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    It’s just part of the business — the NBA schedule can mean holidays away from home and family for players, coaches and a host of support staff. Case in point, for the Miami Heat this season both Thanksgiving and Christmas will be spent on the road. But on the road for Thanksgiving is still home…

    The Mavericks had little trouble with the Lakers on Tuesday, leading by as many as 30 points before settling on a final margin of 19 for the victory.

    kobe crutches game 4 ovation

    Considering the fact that Kobe Bryant hasn’t yet been able to run at full speed, can’t yet fully push off of his healing Achilles, and hasn’t gone through anything close to a full practice, the news that he won’t be back in time for the Lakers’ season opener on Tuesday against the Clippers shouldn’t exactly…

    Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

    Last season: It was supposed to be yet another year spent contending for a championship for a storied Lakers franchise that already has 16 of them.
