So far, so good with Earl Clark. His first night as the Lakers' starting power forward ended in a loss, but Clark played well (12 points, eight rebounds and two blocks).
Clark played 34 minutes, and it sounds like he's locked in going forward. Pick him up.
Off the bench, Pau Gasol played 25 minutes but posted an efficient line: 15 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks. Gasol seemed to respond, but he's on record saying he wants to be a starter.
Dwight Howard got himself into foul trouble and found himself on the bench late. He still played 29 minutes, scoring eight points, pulling down nine rebounds and blocking two shots.
The Lakers are a mess right now, but Clark is looking like a waiver-wire gem.

Though the Lakers have turned away recent trade inquiries for Dwight Howard some still wonder with Dwight’s growing discomfort in the D’Antoni system will lead him to consider leaving when he becomes a free agent July 1st.
But sources told ESPN.com this week the Lakers might be forced to reconsider that position between now and the Feb. 21 trade deadline because...
The Lakers are now 17-23 on the season after their last loss to the Raptors. Kobe was already asking for more help from his teammates before the game even took place. Bryant scored 26 points in the game. The Lakers are having a terrible season this year. The Lakers can’t seem to find the right combination to secure wins. Kobe may just be pointing fingers at the others for all the...
Maybe Dwight is sleep, so the messages aren’t serving their intended purpose? The Lakers are a mess and it is getting close to the time to raise the white flag.
Can’t just blame one person, but it appears they maybe jumped the gun on firing Mike Brown unless they knew for sure they were going to get Phil Jackson.
Once that didn’t happen their season has really spiraled out...
Mike D’Antoni announced Monday that Pau Gasol would be out as Lakers’ starter permanently. He stressed that the Lakers play better when they’re small and that Earl Clark, who played well in Gasol’s absence, is the new starting power forward.
Well, Pau Gasol isn’t happy with the decision as you may of suspected. He recently made it clear that he wants to continue to be a...

Halfway through the NBA season and it’s fairly easy to point out something is wrong with the Los Angeles Lakers. Depending...
Mitch Kupchak is working against the Feb. 21 deadline on whether to make an in-season trade.
Rumor has it that before Kevin Love had broken his hand, he was headed down to Los Angeles and Brooke Lopez was headed to Minnesota…..sending the unhappy Dwight Howard to the Nets.
Brooklyn might be a better fit for Howard actually. And Love would have done good work for the Lakers.
Ahhhhhh….what could have been.
The season has been a colossal disappointment so far, and Kobe Bryant was willing to shoulder the blame not only for Sunday's defeat, but also for the entire season.
Kobe Bryant has been non-stop entertainment since he joined Twitter just a few weeks back. On Sunday he announced that today (Jan 22, and 1pm pst) NBA TV will be replaying his 81-point performance against the Knicks which happened seven years ago, and he will be live-Tweeting it. You can follow Kobe right HERE and enjoy the fun.

Another game. Another loss. Who is to blame for such woes?
The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Chicago Bulls 95-83 on Monday night, continuing the free-fall for the “Purple and Gold.” At 17-24, they currently sit at 12th in the West, four games behind the Houston Rockets for the eighth seed. Not exactly what people expected out of the new-look Lakers.
Who is to blame for the...
Yesterday the Toronto Raptors beat the LA Lakers at the ACC. Normally this would be big news but in terms of the Raptors pulling off an upset. This win was nice and all, but honestly the story that came out of this game is more about how bad the Lakers are than the Raptors making progress.
Is this the ultimate karma kick in the head for LA? They load up on Dwight Howard and Steve...

Kobe Bryant called for changes after the Los Angeles Lakers' most recent loss, the latest twist in a season that gets seemingly more hopeless by the day.
The Memphis Grizzlies have already made a minor move - though perhaps one that will keep them from doing something more drastic down the road.
The Lakers look to avoid a seventh straight road loss for the first time since...
The Lakers have been previously linked to clearing their 2014 offseason books as clear as possible for a free agent signing.
