    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette – the bright lights of Madison Square Garden shining on him – walked the ball up court and called out a play. Of course, Fredette has never been big on plays. His freelancing, gunning style endeared him to fans at Brigham Young, where he carried the program to unprecedented heights. Fredette noticed his…

    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…

    Jan 14, 2014, 12:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Well, it could have been worse, and usually this season when a Laker gets injured it seems like “worse” is the default. Pau Gasol had an MRI on his sore left foot and it came back with a “moderate strain of the flexor tendon of the big toe of his left foot” the team announced.…

  12. Lakers to start Kendall Marshall at point. Because what other choice do they have?

    Jan 3, 2014, 1:14 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before the season the plan was Steve Nash at the point for the Lakers. An ongoing nerve root issue that impacts his back and neck has scuttled that plan so far. Steve Blake was next in line, and he played surprising well adjusting to Mike D’Antoni’s system, but a torn ligament in his elbow sidelined…

  13. Lakers’ Jordan Farmar out another month with new hamstring tear

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:59 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Xavier Henry

    The amount of injuries befalling the Lakers this season is almost reaching comical proportions, especially to players charged with handling some of the point guard duties.

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers lost at home to the stumbling Philadelphia 76ers Sunday night, a low point in a season with a number of them for the Lakers. Pau Gasol wasn’t there — and that was Gasol’s decision, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. It was Gasol’s decision to sit out as his team extended its season-high…

    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…

    Andre Iguodala

    If you’ve watched basketball this year and thought at some point, “Man, these teams sure are shooting a lot of threes”, you’re not alone. Firing up shots from behind the arc has become more of a standard practice for most NBA teams (except for good ol’ Memphis) and teams like the Phoenix Suns and Portland…

    LeBron Christmas sleeved jersey

    LOS ANGELES – The Heat got more of a fight than maybe they were expecting in their Christmas Day matchup with the Lakers, but eventually showed enough on both ends of the floor to get the job done. Behind 23 points apiece from Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, Miami used a 9-0 run late in…

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:47 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before we let November go, like Thanksgiving leftovers how about we have one more little taste of the month that was — the best dunks of November. A lot of times with these lists I have issues with the No. 1 pick, not this month. Xavier Henry earned that top spot with the Kansas-on-Kansas throw…

    Dec 2, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Lakers injury woes just continue (for a second consecutive season).

Farmar…

  22. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

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

    Kobe Bryant

  25. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…
