THE UGLY TRUTH

To Chuck Or Not To Chuck

To chuck, or not to chuck, that is the question.  At least that is the ongoing debate among the pro- and con-Kobe Bryant groups (especially in the comments section of our All-NBA Teams article).  The argument (at least for the anti-Kobe people) is that the Lakers would be a more successful team if Kobe shared the rock more often, especially with Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, two...

Lakers’ coach Mike Brown in trouble of being one-and-done

The Los Angeles Lakers had title hopes this season. They still do actually, but they find themselves in a rather tenuous situation having allowed the Denver Nuggets to come back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the series at 3-3 on Thursday night.   Sure they will play Game 7 in Los Angeles but that may not be much of a consolation after the way they just got thumped in Denver last night...

The Lakers will look to close out the Nuggets again in Denver, but Kobe Bryant is now reportedly questionable. Bryant is reportedly suffering [...]
