The struggling Lakers had better make the adjustments they need, Kobe Bryant warned, or "I'll kick everybody's ass in this locker room if that doesn't happen."
"That's just the attitude you have to have," Bryant said after the Lakers' 113-103 home loss to Orlando on Sunday night, which dropped the Lakers to 3-4 under new coach Mike D'Antoni...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Kobe Bryant scored 29 points, making him the fifth player in NBA history to score 30,000, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a two-game skid with a 103-87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.
Bryant entered the game needing only 13 points to eclipse the scoring milestone and did so with a short jumper late in the first half that was perhaps...
Kobe Bryant engraved his name into the history books even more than it already is, tonight. Bryant became the youngest player in NBA history to reach the summit of 30,000 points, at just 34 years, 104 days old. A feat only four other players have accomplished in the history of the league — Wilt Chamberlain (31,419 points), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928...

Tonight, the Magic will face Dwight Howard for the first time. A tumultuous year of questions and indecision will not be remedied or rectified in this one meeting. Apologies and forgiveness will not be handed out.
At this point, all the parties are more interested in moving on.
Dwight Howard is moving on, recognizing that he made some mistakes, although perhaps not realizing...
Earlier in the week, Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant called out teammate Pau Gasol and said that he needs to “put on his big boy pants.” Needless to say, the entire Lakers team has not played well, and it isn’t just Gasol that has had a hard time adjusting to all the new pieces and [...]
Dwight Howard continues to struggle at the free throw line, but he and Mike D'Antoni believe it is a non-issue.
For those of you that think Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is getting a tad old, you might want to check out this clip.
During Wednesday night's game against New Orleans Hornets, Kobe picks the pocket of rookie guard Austin Rivers and takes it to the other end for a two-handed slam dunk:
Dwight Howard played 8 seasons for the Orlando Magic. Sunday night, he faced his former team for the first time since being traded to the Lakers. His reaction? “It wasn’t emotional.” Really? Well, it was for his former teammates who got dragged through the distraction ridden season last year. “We can all say it was just a basketball game, but we know because of things...
There was something different about the night of Sunday, December 2, 2012. Something that is a rarity in modern day professional athletics. Sometimes there are not rational explanations for why unexpected events occur. The numbers do not always tell the entire story and you do not play a basketball game on paper. The only numbers that really mattered on this night were 113 and...

From Dwight Howard's missed free throws to folks crying for Pau Gasol to be shipped out of Los Angeles, The Unsportsmanlike Conduct Show is back in full effect.The post Podcast: The Lakers (Literally) Cannot Trade Pau Gasol appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
A let down would have been understandable for the Magic as they traveled upstate from an emotional victory over the Lakers on Sunday night. Even Orlando fans might have excused it thanks to the gravity of what defeating Dwight Howard meant to a lot of fans.
Jacque Vaughn though called it a "typical win."
Again, it certainly was not that. But maybe it is becoming...
