Earl Clark has been one of the more popular names in the NBA over the past month. After playing very briefly in his first three seasons in the NBA, Clark has finally gotten an opportunity this season with the Los Angeles Lakers. Since becoming a starter for the Lakers, Clark has been an integral piece to the veteran team. The Lakers have won five of their last six games with Clark averaging 12 points and 8 rebounds.
Clark will likely be a hot commodity following the 2013 season. While other teams may be able to sign him to a longer and more lucrative deal, Clark says he’d rather stay with the Lakers. They’ll be able to sign Clark as an unrestricted free agent even though they are already well over the salary cap next season.
“This is my first team that gave me an opportunity. I love the guys here,” Clark said. “The organization and the style of play fits me. I really want to stay here.”
I’ve never been a big fan of the Los Angeles Lakers, but they’re starting to be much more tolerab...

The Los Angeles Lakers have filed a complaint with the NBA regarding all the hard fouls it claims are being committed upon center Dwight Howard.
Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak believes his center Dwight Howard is taking to many hard fouls. Kupchak filed a complaint with the NBA regarding hard fouls on Howard.
Dwight Howard should have picked another team, a team that didn’t have a Kobe on it. A team that needed a guy like Howard to be a leader. A team where his talents could have shinned. Recently I read an article stating that Howard wants to avoid the circus. Really? If so, then why did he pick L.A. as his destination? He should have known every move he and his Lakers teammates...
The Los Angeles Lakers secured a big win last night against the Brooklyn Nets. Without Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace, one would think that the team would be happy with the result of the game last night. Coach Mike D’antoni had other thoughts. With rumors floating that Mike D’antoni was not happy with [...]
Dwight Howard's Twitter profile proclaims he is, After the Ring!
The reality is, that should be changed to, Such drama!
When you consider the Los Angeles Lakers season and all that drama that has ensued, you cannot help but look at the NBA calendar and notice that time could be running out on their postseason hopes. Adding to the theatrics is the fact that Howard -- the man...
Injuries continue to plague the Lakers big men this season. Pau Gasol will be out 6-8 weeks after suffering a partial tear of his plantar fascia. The injury happened late in the fourth quarter Tuesday night as the Lakers matched up against the Nets. The Lakers are already without the services of back up forward Jordan Hill and Dwight Howard who missed his third game in a row because...

Gasol's Lakers future is, most likely, in a ton of jeopardy at the moment
The 2012-13 season has been a disaster in many ways for the Los Angeles Lakers.
First off, and most prevalent, is their record of 23-26 which is awful by Lakers standards and is completely not indicative of how talented they actually are. Secondly, they traded for Dwight Howard AND Steve Nash...
Kobe Bryant had 21 points and eight rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame the absences of Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace, and the loss of Pau Gasol to beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-83 on Tuesday night.
Antawn Jamison, starting for the suspended World Peace, made the go-ahead basket during a closing 14-3 run for the Lakers, who have won three straight and six of their last...
Well, the hardships of this season just continue to pile up for the Lakers. Forward Pau Gasol left yesterday’s game with an apparent right foot injury, and the news is not good.
It wasn't that long ago (2 weeks to be exact) when Laker fans could only guess what type of team garbed in Lakers jersey will come out of the locker room. There are nights when the Lakers are so engaged that it looks like they're starting to come around. And then there are other games where the Lakers are so much in disarray that their fans could do nothing but sit quietly...
As great as athletes are, Father Time is undefeated. Kobe Bryant is 34 years old, 17 years in the NBA, and has logged over 40,000 minutes on the hardwood. As great as Kobe is, he has made it clear that his time in the league is coming to a close. With just one more [...]
This season has been a year of tribulation for the Lakers (22-26) and it doesn't look like it's stopping anytime soon. Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace will miss tonight's season series finale against the Brooklyn Nets (28-19), the team's 4th stop in this seemingly never-ending road trip.
Howard is still feeling a lot of soreness on his right shoulder after...
Photo courtesy of Ezra Shaw, Getty ImagesThe Lakers must go through an examination of conscience before every game to ask themselves, “How can we make this game difficult to win? What can we do to push ourselves to the very edge?” It is, in a word, maddening. Against Phoenix, they lost a 13-point lead late in the game and gave away a win that was absolutely theirs to lose. In...
