    Sep 11, 2014, 1:29 AM EDT

    Byron Scott

    A second unit of Jeremy Lin, Nick Young and Julius Randle will be a lot of fun. It won’t defend, but it will be entertaining.

    James Worthy

    Lakers don’t have any assets to trade along with the seventh overall pick, so they’re going to have to use it.

    Jun 18, 2014, 11:31 PM EDT

    Apr 10, 2014, 9:47 PM EDT

    Nick Young

    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…

  11. Mitch Kupchak says Lakers don’t do salary dumps

    Feb 21, 2014, 2:16 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Pau Gasol is still a Los Angeles Laker. He and his $19.3 million salary. He could have been moved at the trade deadline but the Lakers wanted assets back for the Spanish star. For example, talks with the Phoenix Suns fell apart when the Lakers wanted one of the top two of the four first…

  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. 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…

    Phoenix Suns v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Late in the Timberwolves’ win over the Lakers on Tuesday, Kevin Love fell awkwardly after being fouled in the air by Robert Sacre. It initially appeared as though the problem was his tailbone, though the official reason given for him sitting out Wednesday night’s game in Oklahoma City is a stiff neck. That would make…

  15. 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…

  16. Even Phil Jackson thinks the Lakers paid Kobe Bryant too much

    Jan 31, 2014, 3:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    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…

  17. No drama in reunion, just easy Rockets win vs. Lakers (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2014, 12:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    Wise move, NBA television executives, choosing to pull Wednesday night’s Lakers at Rockets game off the national broadcast (not that the Spurs/Mavs game that replaced turned out to be a thriller). There is no Kobe Bryant and the “Dwight Howard reunion” drama had played itself out long ago. This was simply another mid-season NBA game…

    Dec 28, 2013, 2:26 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz

    With 11 seconds left and a tie game against the Lakers 103-103, the Jazz wisely put the ball in the hands of Gordon Hayward to create something. Derrick Favors came out by the arc and set a screen which Hayward used to drive right — Xavier Henry went over the top of the screen and…

    Dec 9, 2013, 9:59 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Lakers

    There were rough patches — the 2-for-9 shooting, the eight turnovers — but there were also moments in Kobe Bryant‘s return to action Sunday night against Toronto where you said “that’s the Kobe I remember.” There was his first play, a bullet pass to Robert Sacre for an assist. Later there was the jab step…

  20. Kobe is back but loss to Raptors shows Lakers still have a lot of work to do

    Dec 9, 2013, 2:17 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Kobe passed the first challenge he has set before himself. Eight months of never-ending therapy sessions and workouts to return to the court paid off — Kobe is back. He was introduced with Darth Vader’s theme music and Staples Center was buzzing like it was a playoff game. Kobe was on the court…

  21. With Kobe staying as highest-paid player in NBA, the Lakers can rebuild but it’s not easy

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant has signed a contract extension and is staying on with the Lakers for two more seasons. That news made Lakers nation happy — go to a Lakers game and you see the flood of 24 jerseys in the crowd — you quickly realize why the Lakers could not let him go at any…

    Yao Ming & Kobe Bryant Attend NBA Fans Appreciation Day

    Kobe Bryant is in the final year of his current deal with the Lakers, and he would become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2014 if nothing is done to retain his services before then. Of course, no one believes that Bryant will finish his career in anything other than a Lakers jersey.…

    Oct 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol

    The Lakers only have two players under guaranteed contracts for next season in Steve Nash and Robert Sacre, and just a little more than $10 million in total salary committed. That means there’s a wealth of possibilities in terms of how the team could decide to fill out its roster for 2014 and beyond, and…
