No Guts, No Glory:
We’re almost at the end of the road here for the Lakers. We’ve already heard from a not so optimistic Steve Nash, Magic Johnson has seemingly thrown in the towel and now famous fans are walking out on the team.
With over 7 minutes still left in the game, Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler decided that they had seen enough and there was no way the Lakers could come back from a 103-81 deficit to the Thunder. So Nicholson gave a little wave, Sandler grabbed his jacket, and the two headed for the exits.
The post Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler walked out on the Lakers last night first appeared on No Guts, No Glory.
BEST OF MAXIM
It didn't look too promising for the tumultuous Bryant marriage of late, but now Kobe's better half has let the world know that things might workout for these crazy kids after all.
Kobe and Vanessa Bryant didn’t give up on their marriage, but Magic Johnson has divorced himself from this Los Angeles Lakers season. Facing their 6th-straight loss against the Thunder on Friday night, the former Lakers legend called it a season for the Lakers as they trailed by 16 at halftime. “It’s over for my Lakers. No playoffs, no nothing,” The Lakers ended up losing...
POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE?
Saying that those in the organization "still like this team a lot," Lakers executive vice president Jim Buss believes there is no reason to "blow up" the struggling team.
Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said the Lakers are considering applying for a disabled players exception for Jordan Hill.
Hill is expected to have surgery to fix a possible labral tear and remove "loose bodies" from the joint. Recovery is expected to take six months and Hill would miss the remainder of the season.
The Lakers are eligible to apply for the exception...
EL SEGUNDO Earl Clark savior?
Or is it: Earl Clark savior!
His performance in the next 46 games will ultimately provide the answer. The Lakers dont necessarily need the versatile 6-9 Clark to save them from playoff oblivion. They are, however, counting on him to replace the minutes and production of Jordan Hill.
Numbers-wise hes been even better than the always-energized...
On the bright side for Kobe at least he isn’t getting divorced anymore. Call me crazy, but I think Bean is taking the losses a little harder than Dwight Howard.
Remember when Jim Buss said it is 95% that Dwight re-signs with Lakers?
He might have been using Romney math with that one.
Earl Clark went from scoring 14 points all season (before Wednesday) to starting for the Lakers and guarding Kevin Durant on Friday.
The fourth-year forward got the nod from Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni after Pau Gasol was not medically cleared to play against Oklahoma City.
Gasol will miss his third game because of a concussion. The Lakers' next game after Oklahoma City...
It appears the Lakers' best course of action is to keep Gasol and then re-evaluate the situation in the summer.
While many media members buddy up with Dwight Howard because of his outgoing personality, Jeff Van Gundy is not falling for the act. Van Gundy believes that Howard got his brother, former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, fired in Orlando, and he’s not afraid to call out Howard when he feels it is necessary.
During the second quarter of Friday’s Oklahoma City Thunder-Los Angeles Lakers...
Look on the bright side…The Lakers are gonna get their highest draft pick in years! Ah, that’s right. They traded away all their picks through the 2030 season. It was a nice thought though.
I just don’t get it! But please, spare me all of the excuses…
“They hired the wrong coach…”
“They don’t mesh well on the court…”
“Dwight doesn’t make his free...
LOS ANGELES -- There was a time when a 15-point win over the Los Angeles Lakers on their home floor was a cause for celebration. At least a smile or two. Not in the Oklahoma City Thunder locker room, though. Not with the Lakers just a shell of their former selves. Not with bigger fish to fry. These Thunder have their eyes on a grander prize. Oklahoma City built a 20-point...
The Los Angelers Lakers got blown out at home by the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Staples Center Friday night, and even Lakers superfan (and legendary actor) Jack Nicholson couldn't stand it. Nicholson, along with actor/comedian Adam Sandler, used a fourth quarter timeout as an opportunity to head home early as the Lakers were down 103-81 with 7:31 remaining.
It was a smart...
We’re not sure what algorithm they used, but apparently 22 points was the tipping point at which Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler considered it acceptable to abandon another poor Lakers effort.
Nicholson and Sandler caught Friday night’s Staples Center event, which was billed as a game between the Lakers and Thunder. Instead, Kevin Durant dropped 42 points on the canary-colored...
