Los Angeles Lakers
It may not have been pretty, Jodie Meeks said following the Lakers 102-96 win against Washington, but at least it was a win.
Kobe Bryant shook off the effects of back spasms to score 30 points, while Meeks came off the bench to score a crucial 24 points as the Lakers snapped a four-game losing streak. And its more than fair to say a win is a win especially after four straight losses and just four wins in Mike DAntonis first 13 games. But as DAntoni said to reporters were still not a very good team.
No theyre not.
One play against the Wizards the worst team in the NBA at 3-17 vividly illustrates why the 2012-13 Lakers are such a schizophrenic team.
After blowing a nine-point lead and trailing the Wizards by four early in the second quarter, Metta World Peace missed a three-pointer, yet there wasnt one Laker anywhere near the basket to go for an offensive rebound. Theyd all taken off back to the defensive end, which is seemingly the right move. However, if you allow Cartier Mar...

The Lakers are currently on a road trip that lands them in Madison Square Garden tonight. On Wednesday night, TMZ spotted Kobe with his wife Vanessa following the 121212 Hurrican Sandy relief concert. Vanessa going on road trips… interesting. TMZ notes that the couple has been off and on.

Kobe Bryant has been known to have some of his best career games in Madison Square Garden. Thursday night the red hot Knicks and the struggling Lakers square up at the Garden. Knicks sixth man, JR Smith might have given Kobe a little fuel to show out as Smith responded to a few tweets his [...]
The Lakers have struggled this season and are looking to turn things around. Kobe believes Metta World Peace can help lead the way.
Kobe Bryant spoke harshly about the Lakers struggles after their loss to the Knicks.
We know Melo gets buckets. We know he can carry his team to success. He has a track record in college, but the pros are a different matter. But he has been scorching. He’s probably the biggest reason with the Knicks being relevant. In fact, this is what Kobe had to say about it. The [...]
J.R. Smith responded to some Laker fans on Twitter Wednesday night. During the spree, Smith bashed Kobe Bryant insinuating he takes too many shots. This, coming from one of the most ridiculed players at shot selection. Does having a better record 21 games into the season justify Smith talking trash about one of the greatest players of all time? You be the judge:
Yea shots! RT ...

We’d forgotten what Kobe Bryant’s signature smirk looked like; wondered where Dwight Howard’s happy-go-lucky persona had gone; didn’t know when Metta World-Peace’s random comical remarks would make their re-appearance. All...
Throughout his 16-year career, Kobe Bryant has often drawn the assignment of defending an opposing team’s best player. He has had some epic battles with great players like Paul Pierce and LeBron James, but Kobe says one stands above the rest as the most difficult to cover. That man is Carmelo Anthony.
During an interview with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith on Wednesday, Kobe was asked...

At this point guarding Smush Parker might be a struggle for Bean, but here is what he had to say about Carmelo and King Hairline. To Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony is the toughest cover in the NBA. Tougher, even, than LeBron James. “For me, yeah,” ”He was the most difficult because of his size and [...]

Carmelo Anthony is a greater personal defensive challenge for Kobe Bryant than LeBron James.
Despite the efforts of the NBA's scoring leader, the Los Angeles Lakers have sputtered along without their starting point guard.
The Philadelphia 76ers also struggled without their top playmaker last time out, and could be without him again.
While the Lakers try to win back-to-back games for the first time in nearly four weeks, the host 76ers look to avoid their first three...
