    Making sure Kobe Bryant is happy in his final two seasons in Los Angeles seems to be at the top of the list.

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

  3. Lakers waive Kendall Marshall, sign Xavier Henry to one year deal

    Jul 18, 2014, 2:25 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Los Angeles Lakers

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

  4. Carmelo Anthony still not ready to decide, but he needs to soon as options dry up

    Jul 11, 2014, 3:41 PM EDT

    First team nearly a clean sweep, but one top teamer didn’t even make other two ballots

  8. 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…

  9. 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,…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Lakers make it interesting late before eventually falling to Heat

    Jan 23, 2014, 11:03 PM EDT

    lebron nick young

    The Lakers don’t have much in the way of talent these days, and looking at a starting lineup that includes Ryan Kelly, Kendall Marshall and Wesley Johnson may feel like a strong sign that the basketball equivalent of the apocalypse has descended on Los Angeles. But what the team does have is an above average…

  13. Kobe says Lakers’ record not a factor in his returning to play this season

    Jan 18, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Lakers

    If you haven’t watched the Lakers play recently — and unless you’re a die-hard fan of the team, you would have no real reason to — you may not know just how dire things have become for one of the league’s traditionally great franchises. There is no star power in Los Angeles playing for the…

  14. Lakers’ Nick Young pissed no teammates jumped in to help him after hard foul

    Jan 16, 2014, 11:25 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    The Lakers’ Nick Young has a right to be pissed about the hard foul to the head from Alex Len of the Suns — Len should get a game suspension for that. But when Young bounced up he threw punches and that is going to get him in more trouble with the league than Len…

  15. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

  16. Andrew Bynum, Stephen Jackson top list of players waived Tuesday

    Jan 7, 2014, 4:23 PM EDT

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Today was essentially cut-down day in the NBA. Any player on the roster come Jan. 10 has his contract guaranteed for the full season (even if he is let go), and as it takes 48 hours to clear waivers players have to be let go of Tuesday (5 ET) to make that deadline. There were…

  17. 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…

  18. Report: Timberwolves tell rookies not to wear child backpacks over hazing concerns

    rookie backpacks nba

    What has happened in the Miami Dolphin’s locker room with charges of bullying and over-the-line treatment of rookies has other professional sports leagues running a little scared. We told you the NBA sent out a memo reminding teams to make sure that there is no bullying in their locker rooms, which was to include: “…engaging in…

  19. Lakers announce signing of second round draft pick Ryan Kelly

    Sep 20, 2013, 8:32 PM EDT

    Michigan State v Duke

    The Lakers signed Ryan Kelly, the team announced on Friday via official release. Kelly was selected with the 48th overall pick in the second round of this summer’s draft, with the hope that the 6’11” forward out of Duke would be able to fill the ever-elusive stretch-four role that seems to thrive in the offensive…

  20. Seven collegiate 2013 second round draft picks have international contracts

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    Raptors Heat Basketball

    We have mentioned this before, the draft and stash is not just for European players anymore. Used to be a time when teams drafted a young Euro in the second round, let him develop overseas, then brought him over if and when he was ready. See Marc Gasol as a prime example. But now teams…

  21. Lakers make it official, sign Xavier Henry. Create camp competition.

    Sep 5, 2013, 4:43 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    I love HBO’s “Hard Knocks” — the show that tracks an NFL team through training camp, this season the Cincinnati Bengals. There is great drama because there are few guaranteed contracts in the NFL and there are 75 guys fighting for 53 spots. It would almost never work in the NBA because there just isn’t…

  22. Agent says Lakers, Clippers interested in Louis Amundson

    Sep 4, 2013, 12:34 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Teams know what Louis Amundson is going to give them — real energy off the bench, rebounding, and almost no offense whatsoever. He was part of a good Suns bench back in 2010 but the past three seasons have seen him bounce around the league, struggle to get regular minutes, hand-in-hand with that his production…

  23. Lakers’ Ryan Kelly slow to heal from surgeries, may miss start of season

    Sep 4, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    Michigan State v Duke

    If you’re a big man who can knock down an outside shot you will play in Mike D’Antoni’s system. Which is good news for Lakers draft pick Ryan Kelly out of Duke. Now all he has to do is get on the court. Which may take longer than expected following another surgery on his right…

  24. Lakers announce signing of Elias Harris

    Aug 14, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    elias harris

    We brought you the news that the Lakers would be adding Elias Harris to the roster a couple of weeks back, but the team made the signing of the forward from Gonzaga University official on Wednesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it’s believed to be a one-year minimum deal for $490,180 that’s…
