Posted on 2 Jul, 2014, by in NBA

A busy first day of NBA free agency wasn’t about the superstars, but about the guys who help them out. The Golden State Warriors got the backup point guard they wanted with Shaun Livingston while the Washington Wizards re-signed and kept center Marcin Gortat.

Lakers Over Thunder – The Problems Arrogance Brings

Posted on 10 Mar, 2014, by in NBA

Even though the Oklahoma City Thunder have injuries, there’s no reason for them to look this bad against the Los Angeles Lakers, the worst team in the West. While Kevin Duratn & Russell Westbrook were putting on an offensive horror show, Jodie Meeks made a laughing stokc of a defense that’s supposed to be one of the best in the league. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Little Moment of Happiness

Posted on 4 Mar, 2014, by in NBA

There haven’t been too many pleasing moments this season for the Los Angeles Lakers, so it makes their 107-106 win over the Portland Trail Blazers thanks to a game winning touch by Wesley Johnson even easier to cling on to as a positive in a season filled with bad moments. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Best of the Worst

Posted on 1 Mar, 2014, by in NBA

Despite their 126-122 win over the Sacramento Kings, the Los Angeles Lakers are still the team with the worst record in the Western conference. However, beating a “direct rival” for avoiding being rock bottom was one of the few pleasing moments they’ve been though for quite some time. More

Kobe Bryant – Good or Bad For the Los Angeles Lakers?

Posted on 10 Dec, 2013, by in NBA

By giving an injured, 35-year old Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers made an economic, financial driven decision, not one based on the desire to win NBA titles in the near future. However, it isn’t all negative, and his return to the courts after 8 months of an Achilles Tendon injury keeping him away, might not be the worst thing in the world. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Defense Isn’t a Rude Word

Posted on 7 Dec, 2013, by in NBA

With the return of Kobe Bryant looming, the Los Angeles Lakers seem to be not only hitting the right kind of form to make him feel a lot more comfortable getting back, but finding out that playing some good defense, especially in the final moments of games they’re supposed to win, is something they can actually do.

Lakers vs Rockets – Steve Blake Makes the Most of Hack-a-Dwight

Posted on 8 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

A weird game, especially when this version of the Los Angeles Lakers manages to come up with a win against one of the supposedly better teams in the NBA. Resorting to dirty tactics, which means fouling Dwight Howard in embarrassing ways, and one big shot from Steve Blake, were enough to pull off one of the biggest upsets early in this NBA season.

Los Angeles Lakers – Dwight Howard & Pau Gasol Doing it Without Mambas

Posted on 18 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

When the Lakers were at 17-25 three months ago, statistics and history told us there was no way they’d be making the postseason. Three months later, without Kobe Bryant who gave his body up to put them in a position to enter the promised land, Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol are doing just fine on their own. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Dwight Howard is Better Off Without Kobe Bryant

Posted on 15 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

The sample size of the games without Kobe Bryant this season is too small up until now (only three), but the early conclusion is that the Los Angeles Lakers aren’t doomed without their alleged best player, especially when his absence makes life a little bit easier for everyone on the floor, and especially Dwight Howard, who like it or not is made to be a star on a team, and not just a bystander waiting for a chance.

Los Angeles Lakers – The Torn Achilles Complication

Posted on 13 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

Getting off the floor with a win didn’t seem like such a happy occasion for the Los Angeles Lakers, who might have gotten a step closer to securing a spot in the NBA playoffs, but along the way lost Kobe Bryant, who is probably going to be out for a very long time with a probable Achilles tendon tear. Forget about the rest of the season and the playoffs – at his age, this could be something that ends a career. More
