Los Angeles Lakers – Hate is a Great Motivator

Posted on 31 Mar, 2014, by in NBA

The only thing the Los Angeles Lakers have left to motivate them is ruining it for others, and while it’s difficult for this team to beat superior sides, they proved that filling your body with hate towards the opponents, which is what happened according to Nick Young, leads to some impressive results, like beating the Phoenix Suns 115-99 with Chris Kaman doing better than anyone else.

NBA Rumors – Los Angeles Lakers Hoping to Trade Pau Gasol & Chris Kaman

Posted on 15 Feb, 2014, by in NBA

There’s a huge difference this season about how the Los Angeles Lakers are approaching the trade deadline. Instead of trying to add a piece that improves them, their about setting themselves up for the future with draft picks and more space under the salary cap. For that to happen, moving Pau Gasol and/or Chris Kaman seems like their main objective. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Slow, Tired & Worse Than Ever

Posted on 12 Feb, 2014, by in NBA

One of the sad things about the Los Angeles Lakers this season is that they’re not trying to tank or lose on purpose: They really are that bad. In a campaign that’s been about reaching low points one after the other, their 96-79 home loss to the Utah Jazz marked another chapter in futility and failure. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Injury Situation Beyond Believable

Posted on 6 Feb, 2014, by in NBA

The 119-108 win for the Los Angeles Lakers over the Cleveland Cavaliers might teach us that there are teams in worse situations despite not having the same amount of injuries, but the healthy list is getting shorter and shorter for a team that went into the game with only 8 healthy players and finished with only 4 being eligible as Robert Sacre played after fouling out.

Los Angeles Lakers – Pau Gasol & Chris Kaman the Key to it All

Posted on 9 Oct, 2013, by in NBA

Big man harmony might mean the difference for the Los Angeles Lakers between a total disaster of a season and actually being somewhat playoff contenders once again, even with all the doubts about this team. Kobe Bryant still isn’t playing, only watching from the sidelines, but the developing on-floor relationship between Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman is going to do wonders for the Lakers if it works out.

Chris Kaman Won’t Be Loving Kobe Bryant After He Plays With Him

Posted on 5 Oct, 2013, by in NBA

Even if Chris Kaman exaggerates when using the words love and hate when he refers to Kobe Bryant, it wouldn’t be surprising to find out he won’t be growing too fond of his new Los Angeles Lakers teammate despite suddenly wearing the same jersey. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Kobe Bryant as the Basis for Any Kind of Hope is Very Risky

Posted on 30 Jul, 2013, by in NBA

When a general manager says he expects his team to win in the 2013-2014 NBA season, what does he mean exactly? Kobe Bryant is one huge question mark coming off his injury, when he actually returns. Pau Gasol probably will never be 100% with his knee problems, while Steve Nash has a very low ceiling. The rest? Athletic players who have disappointed in the league. What is exactly winning? More

Los Angeles Lakers – Kobe Bryant Shouldn’t Be This Important

Posted on 21 Jul, 2013, by in NBA

At the center of whatever it is the Los Angeles Lakers think they can achieve next season lies the ability of Kobe Bryant, at the age of 35, with nearly 1500 regular season and playoff games behind him, to get over an Achilles Tendon tear and be good enough to carry the team just like he has in the past.

Los Angeles Lakers – Dwight Howard Left Nothing But Hate Behind

Posted on 18 Jul, 2013, by in NBA

The Los Angeles Lakers don’t know how to cope with losing but to go out and sign the best player available, but with Kobe Bryant chewing up most of the cap space and Mike D’Antoni taking nothing but shots for his defensive coaching abilities and even his once often-praised offensive system, it seems Dwight Howard rejecting their offer to stay has left a much deeper scar than anyone thought it would. More

Los Angeles Lakers – A Team That Can’t Play Defense

Posted on 13 Jul, 2013, by in NBA

Having Mike D’Antoni as a head coach has its blessings and curses, which one of them is having no defensive system whatsoever. That can be overcome with individual and athletic talent, but the old core of Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman isn’t likely to be very effective anyway. More
