The Lakers passing on Phil Jackson and the accusations of betrayal by Jim Buss and company have got to cause a vexing situation with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up this week. Phil’s long time girlfriend is Lakers EVP Jeanie Buss, Jim’s sister and Lakers owner Jim Buss’ daughter.
Sensing perhaps the impending awkwardness around the turkey headed their way, Jeanie Buss decided to seek out advice on how you love and support your man in the face of opposition from the President’s First Lady, Michelle Obama.
Stand strong Jeanie. Everyone knows you should be heading the franchise in your father’s place. It might be time to branch out of the safety of the family’s nest in order to get the respect you deserve. I hope Michelle will at least send you a DM with an answer. Good luck!

Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash was caught doing the 'Gangman Style' dance sitting on the bench next to Steve Blake at the Staples Center during the Lakers-Rockets Sunday showdown. The Lakers beat the Rockets 119-108. Kobe Bryant recorded his 18th triple-double with 22 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds. "I'm a scorer, not a triple-double player," said Kobe Bryant.
The Lakers are on a roll.
Los Angeles is 4-1 since the firing of Mike Brown, and with new coach Mike D’Antoni in tow, is running a new up-tempo offense that seems to be serving Kobe Bryant and Co. well. And it’s doing it all without the presence of point guard Steve Nash.
Well, Nash was in attendance, wearing a suit, on Sunday as the Lakers beat the Houston Rockets 119-108, and...
Ever since Mike D'Antoni got a new knee and a new job in rapid succession earlier this month, his life has been a jumble of unfamiliar faces, grueling rehabilitation sessions and anonymous hotel rooms.
For a few hours Tuesday night, the veteran coach finally got back into his natural environment. And even if he's not quite ready to roam an NBA sideline with his usual vigor...
For those of you looking for the alley-oop from Tuesday night, you need to check out this clip of Lakers forward Pau Gasol finding Dwight Howard on an alley-oop pass.Watch as Kobe Bryant starts the play out as he finds Gasol on the free throw line and Pau finds Dwight for the hammer dunk:
Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers gave his take on the Lakers' coaching change to Chris Russo (SirusXM's Mad Dog Radio) on Tuesday, criticizing the organization for their handling of Phil Jackson.
"I didn't like the way it was done," said Rivers. "I don't think you embarrass anybody."
After relieving Mike Brown of his coaching duties, the Lakers...
I’ll go out on a limb and say the kid with the backwards hat and sunglasses has a basketball IQ of 5. Those matching Dwight Howard t-shirts are kinda cute, though.
Speaking of Mr. Howard, check out the reaction to his latest debacle at the free throw line. Air balls have never been so funny.
Paint your face, clown.
While Los Angeles Lakers fans might get their first chance to see new coach Mike D'Antoni on Tuesday night, the Brooklyn Nets will get their first look at a player who almost ended up on their team.
Dwight Howard will try to lead the suddenly high-powered Lakers to a season-high third straight victory while denying the surging Nets their longest win streak in seven seasons....
