  1. Kobe shooting woes sign of changes coming to Lakers

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant looks on against the New York Knicks during second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant was ice cold last night, shooting 6-of-28. That of course has led to the standard black or white Kobe discussion on the internet — his defenders act as if he can do no wrong, his detractors think he shoots for his ego not because he’s one of the game’s great all time shooters.…

  2. How the Lakers will use Kobe in Mike Brown’s offense

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Three

    The Lakers offense this season is not going to be as different as you think. Oh, it will look different. Gone will be Tex Winter’s triangle replaced with Mike Brown’s new “twin towers” look where he will try to exploit the Lakers tall, skilled big men, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. He has said some…

  3. Steve Blake tweaking his shot before next season

    Jul 29, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    Steve Blake never seemed comfortable in the Lakers triangle offense last season. Coming from more traditional point guard systems, he never seemed to be able to find his spaces in the offense. He saw his assist rate fall way off career averages (the point guard is more a catch-and-shoot guy in Phil Jackson’s triangle) while…

  4. Should the Lakers stick with the Triangle offense?

    May 19, 2011, 6:08 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    As blasphemous as it may sound, a fellow over at Silver Screen and Roll known only as “Actuarially Sound” thinks it’s time for the Lakers to ditch Tex Winter’s fabled offensive system after they hire their next coach. The article is 3,100 words and includes some nice graphs, so I encourage you to click over…

  5. Report: Kurt Rambis done in Minnesota after season, team denies

    UPDATE March 14, 9:53 am: As should be expected and is basically standard operating procedure in these cases, Minnesota officials denied everything about the report, according to the Pioneer Press. GM David Kahn particularly smacked down the idea that Kelvin Sampson was a planned replacement. Kurt Rambis was much more direct. “I don’t comment on…

  6. Phil Jackson: Artest runs the offense better than Kobe

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:58 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Now it is time once again for one of Phil Jackson’s favorite mind games: subtle — and not so subtle – messages to players through the media. What would we do all day if it weren’t for them? Today it is Kobe’s turn to be sent a message. Which is rare because Kobe ignore such…

  7. Kobe admits he “broke” the Lakers offense, but he meant to

    Jan 3, 2011, 9:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    There were some agitators out there trying to play yesterday’s comments by Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant as the two sniping at each other, that there is some tension there. No. Really, no. Yes, Phil Jackson said Kobe “screw(ed) up the offense in the third quarter” but he said today he clarified mean that like…

  8. Ron Artest doesn’t really get the triangle offense — or how to be vegan

    Dec 10, 2010, 12:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    I’ve come to really enjoy Ron Artest because he is entirely driven by impulse. The way we all kind of wish we could be more of on some level. He may be more id driven than anyone else on the planet, but it just works for him. Even if he doesn’t understand all the rules.…

  9. Heat stealing offensive sets from the Lakers, Celtics

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    During those dark, ugly games at the start of the season the Miami Heat offense seemed more like taking turns than some kind of actual offensive sets your high school coach would be proud of. Now that they are winning… there is still a lot of simple sets. Against Utah the other night there was…

  10. Quote of the day, point guard? We don't need no stinkin' point guard?

    Jun 6, 2010, 7:15 PM EDT

    “You know, it’s very interesting to me that in an era where everybody says you’ve got to have a point guard who can penetrate and that if you don’t have one you can’t win. Chicago didn’t have one and the Lakers don’t have one now. So there game is being carried through the triangle offense.”–Dr.…
