The Lakers very well could be the worst team in the West this season.

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

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…

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…

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…

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.…

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…

The Lakers’ journey through this season is starting to resemble Odysseus’ trip home from Troy. Just four games after returning from a hamstring tear, point guard Jordan Farmar has suffered another hamstring tear, this one is expected to keep him sidelined for a month, the Lakers have announced. Farmar came back from his last injury…

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. Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Kobe Bryant are all out for varying time periods, and Jordan Farmar, who just returned from a hamstring injury, was held out of Monday’s…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
