He’s a stretch four that showed potential as a rookie.

We should talk about how Henry fits in the Lakers system… except they don’t have a coach or a system yet.

Rather than spread his salary out over years, the Lakers are going to bring Steve Nash back, as well as Kendall Marshall. Mike D’Antoni… I wouldn’t bet on that one.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while telling your wife to be you want to spend $3,000 to live tweet your wedding… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. Aldridge returns to the lineup and the struggling Blazers rattle off three straight wins. It’s not a coincidence. Aldridge finished with 28 points (10-of-20…

It’s factually and subjectively wrong.

Steve Nash has played just 10 games for the Lakers this season as the nerve root issue that bothered him last season has limited him A couple weeks ago Mike D’Antoni said he didn’t expect Nash to be back this season. He was wrong. At least according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

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…

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…

We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

This game played out pretty much exactly as expected. Dwight Howard made his return to Staples Center and was lustily booed by Lakers fans. Then the game tipped off and the Rockets went out of their way to feed Howard in the post — he scored the Rockets first six points and had eight points,…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while checking out Michael Jordan’s UNC transcripts…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. I’ve just run out of superlatives. He’s your MVP. He’s the best pure scorer walking the face of the earth. He could have saved Krypton from destruction in the first place. On his…

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…

More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now. 1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

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…

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…

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…

Kobe Bryant is taking a $7 million pay cut next season. Of course, he’s still going to make $23 million and be the highest paid player in the NBA, which left a lot of Lakers’ fans shaking their heads. They get the business reasons this is a good deal for the Lakers, but how does…

Ripping the Lakers right now is about as challenging as ripping Qatar as a World Cup venue. You don’t even have to try. That said, the voice of Magic Johnson shredding the Lakers — on twitter, most recently on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno — rings hollow. For a guy whose statue is outside…

All-Star weekend in New Orleans is a little more than two weeks away, and we’ll be getting official word on all of the events’ participants soon enough. The reserves for each All-Star team will be announced on Thursday (though we already know Joakim Noah is in), and the fields for the dunk contest and three-point…

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,…
