Former Clipper and current Laker Chris Kaman decided to stir the pot on the eve of the L.A. showdown tomorrow night. Kaman spent eight long seasons with the Clippers, so he knows a thing or two about losing tradition. Times are different now, the Clippers are loaded with talent capable of reaching the finals, while the Lakers will be fortunate to make the playoffs. The Clippers talent level didn’t stop Kaman from making these latest remarks: “I respect what they’re doing and what they’ve done, but still, they’re nothing like the Lakers,” Kaman said Monday. “You look up here at all the championships. They’re never going to have that. It’s never going to happen. I don’t see it. “There’s just something about the Lakers. The history behind everything. It just makes it that much sweeter.” Let the fun begin at 10:30 eastern time tomorrow night.

The top 5 Los Angeles Lakers of all time

(Disclaimer: Being the best Laker does not necessarily equate to being a better all time player in a historical sense. A combination of talent, longevity with the team, and impact on organization are what helped me compile this list.) The Los Angeles Lakers, more so than any other NBA franchise, have employed the greatest collection of top talent in the league. There have been so...

Lakers say Steve Nash could sit out games this season to stay healthy

The Los Angeles Lakers have let it be known that they will monitor the minutes Steve Nash plays during the 2013-14 season. In fact, they have all but said the 39-year-old could sit out games this season to keep him healthy.

Nash could sit out second game of season opening back-to-back

The latest installment was unveiled in the Steve Nash Injury Watch. It's "very possible" the 39-year-old point guard will sit out the second night of season-opening back-to-back games, Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said Sunday. Somewhere you can hear Nash's fantasy value drop. More important to the Lakers is real-life value and what they can squeeze out of him...

Kobe has started talks on contract extension with the Lakers

Kobe Bryant is an old 35, he's in his final year of a current deal that will pay him $30.5 million this season, the highest salary in the NBA. He's making that much, and the Lakers don't even know when he's coming back. The Lakers had the option to use their amnesty clause this summer on Kobe, but they used it on Metta World Peace, man I hate calling him that. I...

LOS ANGELES, CA - The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 116 – 103. Sorry Clipper fans, you still aren’t the best team in LA. I know how much you want to be.
