Image: L.A. Times Andrew Bynum back in a Lakers uniform? Really? The two-time NBA champion says that he was considering a return to the Los Angeles Lakers after he was waived by the Chicago Bulls earlier this season. Bynum was traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers after he was suspended indefinitely “for conduct detrimental to the team.” The Bulls then immediately waived Bynum as a money-saving move. Once he was a free agent, Bynum considered joining the Lakers and the Miami Heat before he finally decided to sign with the Indiana Pacers at the end of January, according to Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times. There were no reports of the Lakers having interest in bringing their old center back during Bynum’s free agency period, so it’s unclear whether this was just something that Bynum was hoping would happen or whether he actually had discussions with his old team. If he did indeed talk to the Lakers about a reunion, could he possibly with the purple and gold this summer? Personally, I can’t see it happening. While Bynum will be a free agent once again at the season’s end, it seems that the Lakers have moved on from the days of Drew.

Lakers News: Mitch Kupchak on rebuilding the team: “Patience is the key”

Despite Kobe Bryant saying he doesn’t have “one lick” of patience to wait for the Los Angeles Lakers to turn this ship around, general manager Mitch Kupchak is adamant that the team will be careful about how and when they spend their cap space over the next few summers. While Bryant may be hoping that the Lakers go into the summer with the intention to spend all their cap space...

Steve Nash: “I’m not going to retire because I want the money”

You just knew that this would get people talking. In episode three of Steve Nash’s “The Finish Line” documentary for Grantland, the legendary point guard was straight up and honest when talking about why he won’t retire at the end of the season. While the 40-year-old also cited his love for the game for not wanting to retire one year early, Nash was also extremely blunt when...

Lakers Ryan Kelly Impressing

Ryan Kelly is back in the minutes and the starting lineup, and flashing his all-around game to the tune of 13.5/6.5/4.3 with 2 threes over his last 4 games. The Lakers’ rotation is a mess, which is why it’s been featured in this space so much.  Kelly is the kind of player though who the team will give opportunity to, just to find out what they have.  He has far more upside...

Lakers Rumors: Team has Joel Embiid first on draft board, Jabari Parker at four

With just 16 games left in the Lakers’ season and March Madness getting underway, the focus around Lakerland is starting to hone in on the NBA Draft in June. Therefore, it’s probably a good time to see who the Lakers would pick if they end up with the first overall selection in June. It looks as if the Lakers have the 7’0″ center from Cameroon at the top of their list. It’s...

Mark Cuban on Dr. Jerry Buss: “He was by far the best owner in the history of the NBA”

Ask any a random Laker fan for their thoughts on Mark Cuban and they probably won’t be very kind. Cuban is the most accessible owner in the NBA, and most the time, he acts like a regular fan while cheering on his Dallas Mavericks. He’ll curse out the officials, he’ll talk trash via Twitter and he even suggested the Lakers consider amnestying Kobe Bryant last year. And, of course...
