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

Los Angeles Lakers – Something Very Good is Going On

Posted on 30 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

The skeptics (me among them) never expected the Los Angeles Lakers to do this well in the 2013-2014 NBA Season. One month and a week into it, they’re at a 9-8 record following their 106-102 win over the Detroit Pistons, as Mike D’Antoni seems to be getting the most of players like Wesley Johnson, Jordan Farmar, Nick Young and Shawne Williams, setting the ground as best as possible for the Kobe Bryant return.

Lakers vs Nets – Jason Kidd is in So Much Trouble

Posted on 28 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

It’s not enough that the Brooklyn Nets are missing their two best players while a rookie head coach, Jason Kidd doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing.

It didn’t help, and the Lakers still won 99-94, while Kidd probably landed himself into a heap of trouble. More

Posted on 14 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

Don’t be fooled by Pau Gasol scoring 25 points, a season high for him, in the 99-111 loss to the Denver Nuggets. The Los Angeles Lakers have a problem and issue in almost every position and aspect of the game, but they expected the Spanish big man to be a solution to their early season woes, and not the exact opposite.

Los Angeles Lakers – Xavier Henry and the ‘Bench Mob’?

Posted on 30 Oct, 2013, by in NBA

Very few people gave the Los Angeles Lakers the benefit of the doubt when it came to their chances of winning on opening night and succeeding in making the playoffs this season, but maybe there’s still hope as the performance by Xavier Henry and the rest of the bench unit shows that there might be more to this team than meets the eye.

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.

Posted on 15 May, 2009, by in NBA

Luis Scola and Aaron Brooks led the way for the Houston Rockets as they beat the LA Lakers 95-80 and forced a game 7 upon us. Kobe Bryant tried to do it all by himself but fell short, way short. The Lakers looked flat, even unmotivated and now have risky game 7 on their hands. More
