  1. 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…

  2. Sixers’ Evan Turner apologizes for dunk to close out win against Lakers

    Dec 30, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Lakers

    There is etiquette to the end of NBA games — if your team is going to win you don’t celebrate with a dunk or three, you dribble it out, hand the ball to the referee and walk off. The Sixers were up 109-104 on the Lakers with about five seconds left in the game Sunday…

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:03 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves  v Los Angeles Lakers

  5. 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…

  6. Lakers’ point guard Jordan Farmar out 4 weeks with torn hamstring

    Dec 2, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Lakers injury woes just continue (for a second consecutive season). Jordan Farmar, who has played well as a reserve point guard for the Lakers this season sparking a bench unit that has been key to their 9-9 record, will be out for a month with a torn left hamstring, the team announced Monday. Farmar…

  7. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  9. Kobe Bryant ruled out of Lakers season opener as expected

    kobe crutches game 4 ovation

    Considering the fact that Kobe Bryant hasn’t yet been able to run at full speed, can’t yet fully push off of his healing Achilles, and hasn’t gone through anything close to a full practice, the news that he won’t be back in time for the Lakers’ season opener on Tuesday against the Clippers shouldn’t exactly…

  10. 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…

  11. Chris Kaman injures finger tobogganing at the Great Wall of China

    Chris Kaman

    The Lakers are in China as part of the NBA’s Global Games schedule, with two preseason games on tap against the Golden State Warriors.

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks are still looking to add one more backup power forward to the roster, and a lot of Knicks fans look out at the rather barren landscape of available free agents and see Kenyon Martin as the best option. He probably is. And the Knicks fans are not alone in seeing it. But this…

  15. Martell Webster works out for, could end up with Wizards

    Aug 23, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Martell Webster, Rick Adelman

    Trevor Ariza will be the starting swingman for the Washington Wizards, but the team is looking at adding some depth there. Apparently.

    Mar 15, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Trail Blazers Wallace celebrates against Mavericks during NBA playoff game in Portland, Oregon.

  21. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  22. Hypothetical: What if the Lakers were able to team Dwight Howard with Andrew Bynum?

    Feb 4, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    From CBSSports.com: Despite assertions to the contrary, the Lakers remain firmly on Howard’s list of three teams he’s asked to be traded to, along with the Nets and Mavericks, multiple people familiar with the situation said. The Lakers’ clear preference is to trade Pau Gasol in a Howard deal and not Andrew Bynum, who was…

    Last season: 24-58, a better-than-last-year mark that reminds us all just how terrible bad teams can be. Head Coach: Avery Johnson, who still has a lot to prove.
