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 – 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.

Los Angeles Lakers – Kobe Bryant Chasing Points Instead of Title Rings

Posted on 16 Oct, 2013, by in NBA

At this point of his career, the obsessed about his legacy Kobe Bryant is playing only for one thing: Winning that sixth NBA title ring. However, he doesn’t have a good enough team in the current Los Angeles Lakers to help him achieve that goal, which means he’ll have to settle for trying and becoming the greatest scorer in NBA history.

Los Angeles Lakers – Wasting Time Until Kobe Comes Back

Posted on 7 Oct, 2013, by in NBA

There’s not much to really expect from the Los Angeles Lakers as they lose their first game of the preseason, because Kobe Bryant isn’t part of the setup right now. Their loss to the Denver Nuggets is twice as meaningless as it usually would be because nothing you see on the court in terms of team cohesion and team blend matters, as Bryant has the knack to make everything different the moment he steps on the court.

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.
