Things haven’t been what the Lakers organization or fans expected this year after signing Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in the off-season. Once arguably the “Greatest Show On Court,” the Lakers are now the greatest show off it.
After dropping another game last night to the Spurs head coach Mike D’Antoni cracked a “joke” that probably sums up his current state of mind.
“At least they put my (hotel) room on the third floor, so if I did jump I would just hurt my ankle a little bit,” D’Antoni said Wednesday night, via the LA Times.
I’m sure this is NOT what the Lakers organization expected when they hired D’Antoni, and not what expected when he accepted the job.
I’m sure Mike Brown is sitting somewhere (Chick-Fil-A sandwich in hand) grinning.
BEST OF MAXIM
Man, it seems nothing is going right for the Lakers as of late. As mentioned previously, the Lakers dropped the squad’s fourth-straight game on Tuesday, losing to the Houston Rockets. Now comes video of a somewhat unsettling occurrence during the same game.
During a break in the action, perspiring point guard Steve Nash took a moment to dry himself off with a towel. Once he...
This quote from Steve Nash himself, can’t be good for Laker fans to hear:
“I think three or four weeks ago, people would have said, ‘Oh, it will get better, right now, I definitely don’t think there’s a guarantee it will, so the only remedy is to continue to work hard and give yourself a chance for it to get better….
“I obviously think with time — and that might mean...
Kobe and Vanessa Bryant didn’t give up on their marriage, but Magic Johnson has divorced himself from this Los Angeles Lakers season. Facing their 6th-straight loss against the Thunder on Friday night, the former Lakers legend called it a season for the Lakers as they trailed by 16 at halftime. “It’s over for my Lakers. No playoffs, no nothing,” The Lakers ended up losing...
Reality is slowly beginning to set in for the Lakers. Firing Mike Brown wasn’t the answer, Kobe and Dwight are fighting on and off the court, and the floundering Lakers are in danger of missing the playoffs.
While some still hold out hope that things will turn around in time for a magical ride through the playoffs, Steve Nash is not so optimistic. In speaking to the LA Times, Nash...
The majority of basketball fans wish bad things upon Metta World Peace, but hoping the Laker gets armpit sweat rubbed all over his face is a little much — and quite disturbing.
But, since it did happen, let’s all take a moment to watch video evidence and laugh at the artist formerly known as Ron Artest.

The Mike D'Antoni error is in full swing in the Los Angeles. Remember when Steve Nash's return was going to save the Lakers? Ah, seems like only yesterday. Well, it was only about two weeks ago. And now we have reports that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard almost got into it in the locker room. Welcome to LA, the land of soap operas.Since Steve Nash returned from his leg injury...
The walk to the team bus was short but still left eons for Steve Nash to ponder the imponderable.
Will the Lakers miss the playoffs?
"I think about it every day," he said in a quiet moment after their latest loss, Wednesday in San Antonio. "We've got to make some serious ground up here quickly. We're in deep, and we've got to find a way to scratch and...
Ball Don’t Lie: Steve Nash may want to consider bottling his pit stank and marketing it as cologne. He’s already got one prospective customer who could double as a famous spokesperson in teammate Metta World Peace. The product would likely fly off the shelves considering the great influence of the Los Angeles Lakers, an organization that has popularized such things as Matt...

The Suns have long been associated with the "Seven Seconds or Less" offense that Mike D'Antoni brought in when he was hired as head coach. That has become synonymous with the Suns.
Since D'Antoni was let go, there have been several coaches trying to bring a different tact and add a little defense to the team to get them over the top. It worked to some extent in...
