Los Angeles Lakers
LOS ANGELES -- The Lakers' loaded starting lineup fell to 0-4 as a unit as the visiting Denver Nuggets dealt Los Angeles a 112-105 loss Sunday night at Staples Center. Though Lakers starters Dwight Howard, Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace all scored in double figures, the group remains winless. While Nash missed most of the early part of the season with a leg fracture and only recently returned, things have not looked much better for the team since his return. Certainly not Sunday night, when the Nuggets used a big third quarter to regain control. After Los Angeles outscored Denver 34-26 in the second quarter to tie the game at the half, 60-60, the Nuggets fell behind by four midway through the quarter. Denver (20-16) then held Los Angeles to just five points in the final six minutes of the third, seizing a six-point lead going into the fourth quarter. Though the Lakers (15-18) cut the deficit to as few as three points, the Nuggets took advantage ...

After Kobe Bryant and the Lakers almost defeated the Clippers, he sent out a tweet about self-doubt. He had the chance to explain himself to LA Daily News:
The NBA’s most confident player showed insecurity on a night he almost single-handedly carried the Lakers to a win.
After posting 38 points in the Lakers’ 107-102 loss Friday to the Clippers, Bryant tweeted...
Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard witnessed a team with great chemistry Friday night in the Lakers' 107-102 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, which he says he wants for the Lakers.
"Those guys on the Clippers team, they really enjoy each other off the court and it shows," Howard said Saturday via ESPN.
Howard says the Lakers still need to find their chemistry...
Kobe Bryant and his teammates, the "old as ****" Lakers, looked old again last night against the Clippers. They lost 107-102 behind the 38 points of Kobe Bryant. Think it's about time for them to look for trade offers. Kobe was right, they clearly need to get younger and faster. There was one play last night where Kobe went back to the early 2000s though. ...
Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is out indefinitely with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, while forward Pau Gasol is out with a concussion, according to ESPN.
"I would like to play but I just want to make sure that my shoulder is good to go," Howard said after the Lakers' 112-105 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Click Link Below to Read Story!
The Los Angeles Lakers are not doing well. They are continually losing as they attempt to find their ways, if possible. The future of being in the NBA Playoffs this coming Spring 2013 is not looking too bright at the moment. At first they blamed their coach and he got [...]
The Dwight Howard experiment has gone very wrong in LA, so far. Is it because of his back, the coach, Kobe or Dwight himself is anyone’s guess.
It could be a combination of all that.
Things will go from bad to worse if his shoulder injury is anything serious. Here is what Dwight had to say.
“I would like to play but I just want to make sure that my shoulder is good to go,”...
Kobe Bryant was introspective after after the Lakers' 107-102 loss Friday to the Clippers.
We’re one happy family T…
Lakers star Kobe Bryant had a bit of fun with his newly formed Twitter account yesterday. A report surfaced that Kobe and Dwight almost came to blows after another frustrating loss, so Kobe shot out the pic above. No better way to squash a rumor than to make fun of it. Definitely funnier than their current #11 spot in the Western Conference.-TO
Kobe Bryant vs. Dwight Howard
So much for the rumored fight between Los Angeles Lakers stars Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard. Bryant posted this photo to his Twitter page today.
"The mamba vs d12 !! It's on lol," Bryant wrote.
How dare they put Mike D'Antoni in the middle. Can we get this signed for WrestleMania, Vince McMahon?
Magic Johnson, Steve Nash and Chris Paul star in the new “Unbelievable is BIG” commercial where Clippers point guard Cp3 is “the disappearing act”:
More bad news in Laker land. The injury bug has bitten once again. Just two weeks after Steve Nash finally returned tot he court with his teammates, now Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard are out indefinitely. Dwight Howard suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder during the Lakers loss to the Nuggets on Sunday. [...]
No Dwight Howard or Pau Gasol. No big draft trade, no superstar, no hope. This was the reality for every Houston Rocket fan. Local radio shows laughed at the Omer Asik signing, not knowing of his defensive dominance. Linsanity was to make money and be bad enough to get a top 3 draft pick in next year’s draft. Trading for James Harden gave people hope, but just enough to know...
