The Lakers, unlike last season, actually won a preseason game. Though it’s not much to cheer about, it definitely is a good sign. With Kobe, Pau, and Nash out for tonight’s game, the Lakers “scrubs” battled it out with the Golden State Warriors, in a full exciting 48 minutes. These are what I picked up […]

Kobe Bryant won’t partake in tomorrow night’s pre-season opener against the Golden State Warriors, however, we already knew that; not only is the eighteen-year veteran still recovering from season-ending surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon, but he’s also in Germany right now receiving treatment to his troublesome right knee.
On the other hand, Pau Gasol and Steve Nash...
If you’re a fan of rap music, you’re probably a fan of Rap Genius. We’re fans, too, so when RG reached out to us and asked if we’d be interested in teaming up with them and helping out with some of the Lakers content on their News Genius site, we jumped at the opportunity.
The first post we’ve collaborated on is focussed on the Lakers’ off-season moves; each transaction...
Saturday night the Warriors lost by 9 to the Kobe-less, Gasol-less, Nash-less Lakers in both team’s first preseason game. What did we learn? Not much other than David Lee and Andrew Bogut still have their summer tans in good form. There was a lot of rust to shake off and a lot of minutes played by each team’s bench.
It was primarily a battle of role players and second unity...

Team Preview: Golden State Warriors
Ninth up is the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are coming back from an impressive season. They ended the regular season with a 47-35 record, good enough to earn themselves the sixth seed in the Western Conference. The Warriors then proceeded to the postseason where they played both the Denver Nuggets and...
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- When you walk into the Lakers' practice facility, you immediately notice a 180-degree difference in the attitude of the players, coaches and team personnel.
The Dwight Howard factor is gone -- and none of the Lakers are losing any sleep over it.
Factor, disturbance, Dwightmare -- whatever you want to call it -- is in Houston; healthy and getting ready...
LOS ANGELES, CA - It’s a miracle! In pre-season action, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors 104-95. In what pundits have already predicted to be a bleak and miserable season, the Lake Show started off on the right foot by earning their first pre-season victory since 2010. Playing at the Citizen’s Bank Arena in Ontario, Nick Young scored 17 points in 19...
The Los Angeles Lakers for the first time in a few years aren’t expected to be in the championship picture. With Kobe coming off an Achilles injury, it’ll be some time before we see the Lakers’ best player take the court again. So the most interesting thing about this squad this season might be what […]
Don’t ever say the University of Arizona doesn’t teach them well.
It has become popular among NBA players to look at teams in Florida and Texas as the most desirable free-agent destinations. Even when compared to the glitz of New York and Los Angeles, the absence of state income tax has given a tangible advantage to clubs like the Miami Heat and Houston Rockets in wooing top...
It’s only the preseason, but that and summer league are the only times Anthony Randolph seems to want to show up.
The potential filled big man displayed some nice moves for the Nuggets last night, including this drive and dunk on the Lakers Elias Harris.
This highlight should probably be more about how Randolph faked Pau Gasol right out of his sneakers.
Nuggets defeat Lakers 97-88 In Pau Gasol and Steve Nash’s preseason debut, the Lakers team kept it tight with the Nuggets all the way through the first half. The game went back and forth, but neither team was able to pull away. At the half, the Nuggets led 46-44. However, it must have been the ...The post Los Angeles Lakers-Denver Nuggets Game Recap appeared first on The League News.
Mike D’Antoni is focussing on defense this year. Yes, that Mike D’Antoni – you know, the guy with the moustache and a love for scoring lots and lots of points.
Whether it’s D’Antoni finally realizing that he needs to put in more work on the defensive end with his players, wanting to shut up the “haters” who so often call him “Antoni”, or if it’s just to replace...
A sixth place finish during the regular season was a bit of a surprise from the Warriors last year. They had plenty of talent on the roster and a young star in Stephen Curry, however, the injury concerns surrounding Curry and the relatively lackluster performance during the 2011-12 season in which they finished twenty games […]
