  1. D’Antoni on saying Lakers would score 110 a game: “I was on drugs back then”

    Oct 22, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike D’Antoni just wants to run his system his way again. He’s been mocked for that system by some fans who say it can’t win a ring, but two facts remain: 1) Back in Phoenix with the right personnel (a younger Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire, plus Shawn Marion and others) they won 54 games…

  2. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

    Oct 14, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    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. L.A. loaded up with free agent talent in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, and was on paper the team most believed would stand in the way of a second straight…

  3. Nick Young becomes second Lakers player victimized by toboggan at Great Wall of China (VIDEO)

    young sled

    It’s one thing for the NBA to send its teams abroad to promote the game internationally, but it’s quite another for the players to engage in such dangerous local attractions. Apparently the Great Wall of China isn’t just something you stroll across, but it also features a toboggan run that you can sled down at…

  4. Chris Kaman discusses the perils of playing on a one-year contract

    Oct 1, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    As the Lakers rounded out their veteran roster with a few key free agents this summer, they targeted experienced players who could still produce, but who for one reason or another were willing to sign on for one-year deals. Chris Kaman was one of those, a 10-year veteran seven-footer who can put up more than…

  5. Steve Nash open to taking games off to rest during regular season

    Sep 28, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Now that Grant Hill has retired and the playing days of Kurt Thomas similarly appear to be behind him, the players whose birthdays are just a day apart no longer top the list of the league’s oldest players. The honor now belongs to Steve Nash, and if he wasn’t aware of it before, he is…

  6. PBT Roundtable: Who gets the last couple playoff spots in the West?

    Sep 19, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Wayne Ellington, Ricky Rubio

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: The conventional wisdom is in the West the Thunder, Spurs, Clippers, Warriors, Grizzlies and Rockets are playoff locks (barring catastrophe). If true, who gets those final two slots? Kurt Helin: I think Minnesota,…

  7. Sasha Vujacic still hoping to land NBA roster spot

    Sep 16, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Sasha Vujacic

    There was a time this summer, when the Lakers went out and got Jordan Farmar and fans thought they may be getting the 2009 band back together, that Sasha Vujacic looked like maybe he could get an NBA roster spot again. That time came and went (and the Lakers chose wisely not to live in…

  8. Jordan Farmar says chance to play for D’Antoni helped his decision to return to the Lakers

    Sep 7, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    jordan farmar

    Jordan Farmar was a member of two championship teams in four seasons during his first tour of duty with the Lakers, albeit in a reserve role. He clashed with Phil Jackson at times, and felt constrained by what he was expected to do within the Triangle offense. Farmar always felt like he was capable of…

  9. Kurt Rambis not sure how fast Lakers can play next season

    Aug 5, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni smiles with Pau Gasol of Spain and Kobe Bryant during their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets, as he makes his game coaching debut for the Lakers, in Los Angeles

    The Lakers played pretty fast last season — they averaged the fifth most possessions per game in the league. (Houston was the fastest, have fun with that Dwight Howard.) Of course, Mike D’Antoni would like the Lakers to play faster. But Kurt Rambis doesn’t sound optimistic the Lakers can do that with the roster as…

  10. Odom wants to stay in L.A., but does anyone want him?

    Aug 3, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Greg Oden, who last played in the NBA in 2009 and has had multiple major knee surgeries since then, got a contract for next season before Lamar Odom. Which tells you about how far Odom’s stock has fallen. He is battling Antawn Jamison and Al Harrington for the “veteran forward at the end of the…

  11. Lower expectations next season should give Mike D’Antoni a real chance with the Lakers

    Jul 21, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni smiles during a media conference after practice at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo, California

    Mike D’Antoni was placed into a situation as head coach of the Lakers last season where he never really had a fair chance to succeed. The hope in Los Angeles this year is that due to expectations being lowered significantly from the championship-or-bust mentality that (rightfully) surrounded the team a season ago, D’Antoni won’t be…

  12. Jordan Farmar made a financial sacrifice to rejoin the Lakers

    Jul 20, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    jordan farmar

    It’s no secret that the Lakers needed to find talent willing to sign up to play for them at a bargain price to round out their roster for next season, once the plan to convince Dwight Howard to stay fell through and the team still had a payroll north of $70 million staring them in…

  13. It’s official, Jordan Farmar signs with the Lakers

    Jul 17, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    jordan farmar

    We’ve known that the Lakers and Jordan Farmar had agreed to a reunion for a week or so, but thanks to a longer-than-expected buyout process with the team Farmar played for last season in Turkey, we’re just now getting the official word that the deal is done. Farmar will return to Los Angeles on a…

    UPDATE 7:41 pm: The Lakers have confirmed that the deal is done. Here is the statement from Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak: “At 6’7,” Nick’s size, ability to create his own shot and athleticism make him a versatile player who will give our lineup multiple looks on the floor. He’s an exciting player, and we’re excited…

  16. Joe Johnson trade to Nets nearly complete, Brooklyn out of Dwight Howard chase

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Nets seem to be thinking about having an interesting team to open the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with next season, the years beyond that be damned. And Dwight Howard be damned. He has said Brooklyn is the place he wants to be but when this trade for Joe Johnson goes through they would be…

  18. Nets sign point guard Armon Johnson to 10-day contract

    Via NetsDaily’s Net Income: Armon Johnson, who the Nets looked at before the 2010 draft, has been signed to a 10-day contract, bringing to 22 the number of players who’ve worn the Nets uniform this season. A 6’3″ point guard, Johnson played 38 games for the Trail Blazers in 2010-11, averaging 2.9 ppg, shooting better than 40% from deep.…

  21. Video: Michael Jordan holes one out from 55 feet

    Mar 30, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    Usually if we are talking about a 55-footer on this site, Jordan Farmar — or some other long-shot specialist — hoisted one up from the other side of half court to beat the buzzer and it happened to fall. Like say Dwyane Wade. But in this case we’re talking Bobcats owner Michael Jordan…. who as…

  23. Report: Nets interested in Boris Diaw and his expiring contract

    Mar 14, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    Boris Diaw

    If the New Jersey Nets are indeed at the top of Dwight Howard‘s list of preferred places to play next season, then they’re going to need as much salary cap space as possible — not only to pay Howard, but also to have some money left over to surround him with some decent pieces. It…

  24. Nets would rather get Howard now rather than wait until July

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    It’s not that the Nets are impatient, but the organization would rather get Dwight Howard now rather than wait until this summer. Even if that’s not the goal of Dwight’s latest statements. There are a couple of good reasons for this. One, the longer they wait the more things that can go wrong. Call it…

  25. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…
