So it’s been a while since we updated Lakerstats with everything after the conclusion of the 2011-12 season, but as of today, all stats and information are 100% up-to-date.
Dwight Howard shows off new Lakers jersey at press conference.
In celebration of the all the incredible acquisitions that Mitch Kupchak and the front office made in the offseason, which included Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, we have updated the web site title banner in honor of these monumental moves.
In addition to Nash and Howard, the Lakers also signed former All-Star Antawn Jamison, sharp-shooter Jodie Meeks, guard Chris Duhon, and forward Earl Clark from Orlando in the DH12 trade. In fact the Lakers have just three players on their roster who were with the team when they beat Boston for the title in 2010, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Metta World Peace. It’s definitely a new chapter this season, one that hopefully ends with the franchise’s 17th NBA championship!

We’re also going to get the rest of the site updated this year to the correct look. Some of the old stat pages still have the old web site’s layout, but that will be fixed. It’s just a big process to convert those pages over, but we will get them uniform very soon.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support, and here’s to a very special season for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2012-13!

The Los Angeles Times gives us five things Dwight Howard needs for a successful season.
1. Howard must have a healthy back. He has given no timetable for a healthy return and may miss the season opener Oct. 30 against Dallas.

I came across this photo and thought it was quite interesting. Believe it or not, both Josh Smith and Dwight Howard, along with Randolph Morris, were Celtics at one time. Unfortunately it wasn't the Boston Celtics, but the Atlanta Celtics when they played AAU basketball together. Howard is more than likely staying in LA, but there's still a chance that Josh Smith may...
Dwight Howard already has a love in Los Angeles, as it’s being reported that Howard is dating R&B singer Ciara.
A source is claiming that the two have been trying to keep their romance a secret, until Howard feels that the two are really serious about their relationship.
The source also goes on to say that Howard is very conscious on what people think of him, after he held...

Now that Dwight Howard has been traded and solved the summers biggest riddle, theres really only one question left:Hows the back, big fella?That seems to be something most fans and media would prefer to ignore. If not ignore, at least talk about a lot less than the fact Howard is now a member of the Lakers joining forces with Kobe Byrant, Steve Nash and Pau Gasol to form the NBAs...

We have all heard about the much-ballyhooed trade that rocked the NBA world by now: the four-team trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers for some picks and a couple of scrubs. The part of the four-teamer that folks didn’t pay as much attention to was the Philadelphia 76ers getting Andrew Bynum.
As a fan of an Eastern Conference team (my New...

There’s a lot going on behind the scenes at GMTR in preparation for the 2012-13 season, and now that things have settled down a bit with regard to player movement, it seems like a good time to throw out some links for you to read to begin your own prep for the season (assuming you have time when not getting ready for fantasy football).
