    Jul 8, 2014, 6:35 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond

    Spencer Hawes wants to arm wrestle Blake Griffin for the No. 32 jersey…. Hawes on the Clips is going to be fun.

  2. Why the Lakers shouldn’t re-sign their role players to one-year contracts

    Jun 23, 2014, 12:02 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Xavier Henry

    By the way, Lakers and Xavier Henry both want him to stay in Los Angeles next season

  3. Thursday And-1 Links: Thoughtful writings on Mark Jackson firing, race

    May 8, 2014, 7:36 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    The firing of Mark Jackson has led to some really great writing about race and the NBA.

    Apr 15, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    And Burke is one of the best rookies in this class….

  5. Steve Nash will play Friday vs. Dallas, says it’s likely his last game of season

    Apr 4, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Nash’s nerve root issue is still bothering him, so after playing his old Dallas team he will shut it down for the season.

  6. Lakers lose Jordan Farmar for two weeks with groin injury. Ugh.

    Mar 18, 2014, 5:38 PM EDT

    jordan farmar

    Okay basketball gods, you have exacted your pound of flesh from the Lakers this season. They already are eliminated from the playoffs, they have lost more man games to injury than any other team. They have been embarrassed. You can back off now. Except they are not. Jordan Farmar will be out for at least…

  7. After Lakers’ 48-point loss, Laker GM Kupchak, owner Buss met with coach D’Antoni

    Mar 8, 2014, 2:54 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Lakers have lost a lot of games this season (42 to be exact), but the historic 48-point blowout loss to the Clippers Thursday night on national television hit the fan base hard. Many of these fans rooting for them to lose and get a better draft pick were embarrassed at the lack of defensive…

  8. Monday night NBA grades: Masked LeBron James is a bad mutha (Shut your mouth)

    Mar 4, 2014, 3:37 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

  9. Lakers’ Wesley’s Johnson’s game-winning alley-oop inbounds play to beat Blazers (VIDEO)

    Mar 4, 2014, 2:57 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Portland Trail Blazers

    Portland had battled back from 14 down to take a one-point lead and it looked like they would hand the Lakers another painful loss. The Lakers hadn’t scored a field goal in the final six minutes and looked defeated. Then this happened. It’s a play the Lakers have run before (against Detroit): Jordan Farmar fakes…

  10. Sunday night NBA grades: Jason Collins takes the court, Jamal Crawford owns his

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:19 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while getting sucked into the “Reality Bites” power rankings…  Jason Collins, Brooklyn Nets. He was brought in to Brooklyn because he has a skill set they need — he can defend the post, he can rebound, and he sets a mean pick (Collins said after…

  11. Steve Nash’s leg bothering him again, likely out until after All-Star break

    Feb 12, 2014, 1:05 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Lakers

    Steve Nash played his 10th game for the Lakers Tuesday night (maybe now some Lakers fans will finally let go of the medical retirement stuff that was never going to happen anyway). And he aggravated his nerve root injury. Again. Nash tried to play through it but that didn’t work. He said the back issue…

  12. Lakers’ Nick Young injures knee, out at least two weeks

    Feb 6, 2014, 4:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    The Lakers, already far and away leading the NBA in man-games lost to injury, continue to pad that lead. Not that they want to. Just as they got pretty much their entire point guard rotation back from injury, they have lost Nick Young for at least two weeks with a “non-displaced fracture of the patella…

  13. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  14. Lakers finish win over Cavaliers with just four active players

    Feb 5, 2014, 10:24 PM EDT

    Lakers bench

    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…

  15. Told by Lakers they’re dropping him, Manny Harris scores 19 points for Los Angeles

    Feb 5, 2014, 1:44 PM EDT

    Manny Harris, Chuck Hayes, Patrick Patterson

    Steve Nash and Steve Blake returned for the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. Jordan Farmar should be back soon, too. So, it makes sense the Lakers wouldn’t re-sign Manny Harris. They’ve already signed him to two 10-day contracts, the second of which expires today, and they’d have to re-sign him for the rest of the…

  16. Steve Nash to return, start for Lakers Tuesday night against Minnesota

    Feb 4, 2014, 1:18 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    So much for that whole “easing him back in” thing… Steve Nash will not only be back and play for the Lakers on Tuesday night, he will start, coach Mike D’Antoni told the media, as reported by Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News. Nash will play the first 5-8 minutes of the game…

  17. Steve Nash listed as “probable,” expected to play for Lakers Tuesday

    Feb 3, 2014, 5:48 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Believe it or not, the Lakers are actually going to get some players healthy. Not Pau Gasol (out this week with a groin strain) no Kobe Bryant (out at least past the All-Star Game with his fractured knee) but they are getting Steve Nash and Steve Blake back. The pair of guards will be listed…

  18. Steve Nash could be back on court for Lakers next Tuesday

    Jan 31, 2014, 4:55 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash practiced on Thursday with no issues or setbacks, but will not suit up when the Lakers host the Charlotte Bobcats Friday night. However next Tuesday he could return. So could Steve Blake. That’s what Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said after shootaround on Friday. D'Antoni says injured Lakers PGs had no setbacks after Thursday…

  19. Steve Nash tweaks back getting out of bed, still likely to practice Thursday, is day-to-day

    Jan 28, 2014, 1:36 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash is day-to-day, according to the Lakers. He could be back playing with the Lakers by Friday night. But in a sign of how fragile things are with the former MVP, who is about to turn 40 (Feb. 7), he didn’t practice on Monday as expected after tweaking his back getting out of bed,…

  20. Report: Kobe Bryant out another two weeks to month with knee fracture

    Jan 28, 2014, 10:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    We know him, if it was just a matter of playing through pain, Kobe Bryant would be back. But it’s not. He has a fractured lateral tibial plateau — the bone at the top of the shin that connects to the knee — and until the bone heals properly Kobe can’t return. Which means he…

  21. Lakers’ Jodie Meeks on his way to hitting contract incentive

    Jan 11, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Lakers

    At least one positive thing may come of all the injuries the Lakers have been dealing with this season, but it’s something that will benefit just one of the team’s players. Thanks to plenty of available minutes in the rotation without players like Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar around for much…

  22. Lakers to start Kendall Marshall at point. Because what other choice do they have?

    Jan 3, 2014, 1:14 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before the season the plan was Steve Nash at the point for the Lakers. An ongoing nerve root issue that impacts his back and neck has scuttled that plan so far. Steve Blake was next in line, and he played surprising well adjusting to Mike D’Antoni’s system, but a torn ligament in his elbow sidelined…

  23. Lakers’ Jordan Farmar out another month with new hamstring tear

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:59 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers’ journey through this season is starting to resemble Odysseus’ trip home from Troy. Just four games after returning from a hamstring tear, point guard Jordan Farmar has suffered another hamstring tear, this one is expected to keep him sidelined for a month, the Lakers have announced. Farmar came back from his last injury…
