Some Lakers personnel indicated after a recent loss that they are concerned about Pau Gasol's conditioning.
OLD MAN BRYANT
Tweet While the Los Angeles Lakers are struggling during a two-game losing streak, it appears that first-year Laker Dwight Howard hasn’t lost his wild sense of humor. Here’s video of Howard clowning Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant’s age on a recent team flight: I’m not too sure how Kobe or fans will respond to Howard’s joking [...]
Kobe Bryant shoot poorly in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 106-98 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night, and he was so upset he walked off the court before the game actually ended. Bryant had missed a three pointer that would have made it a five-point game with around 20 seconds left when he went back to the defensive side of the court. Rather than foul Memphis, the Lakers conceded...
While some members of the Los Angeles Lakers may be happy with the hiring of Mike D’Antoni as the team’s head coach, Pau Gasol surely is displeased.
The four-time All-Star has experienced two of his poorest statistical games this season in the last two Lakers contests — both losses. Gasol also found himself on the bench for the entire fourth quarter of the 106-98 loss to the...
Chemistry is important. How teammates “click” at times can have a lot of influence on the court. The Lakers are still finding their way on a team that has two major additions. Following their loss to the Kings on Wednesday night, Dwight Howard took over the stewardess’ intercom to add a little comedy to [...]
Things haven’t worked out quite as well as everyone thought they would for the Lakers this season. After bringing in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in the offseason, the team was slow to start the season, which ended up costing head coach Mike Brown his job. Nash meanwhile is out indefinitely with a non-displace leg fracture, which means Kobe Bryant has picked up the slack in...
Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash said Friday that he doubts he will be ready to play by Tuesday, according to ESPN Los Angeles. Nash still cannot jog or participate in any on-court drills without pain. The veteran fractured his left leg in the Lakers' season-opener on Oct. 31. He sustained the injury when he bumped knees with Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard...

Whether it’s the offensive system that’s causing it, or whether it’s the pairing alongside another dominant low post threat, Pau Gasol has just not been himself in recent years. Since the Los Angeles Lakers’ failed defense of their back to back championships in 2011, Gasol has gone MIA and has left the rest of Lakers [...]The post Morales: The case of the misused, misplaced...
