Jason WhitneyKobe Bryant will never be known for his shot blocking, or LeBron-like blocks from behind in transition. However, Bryant showed he still has some spring left in those old legs of his as he swatted Gordon Hayward off the backboard. Hayward looked a bit shocked as Kobe went up and blocked his lay-up attempt. To make matter worse for Gordon, the ball hit him in the shoulder...
Just as practice ended, the Lakers' frontline in Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol performed a move that usually leaves defenders off balance.
But this time, it involved a sea full of reporters. Gasol entered the media scrum, while Howard hoped to sneak into the trainer's room. But to no avail. It's understandable considering Howard knows the question before the media asks...

The Lakers were able to turn a series of cost-saving trades into the acquisitions of Steve Nash, Jordan Hill, Robert Sacre and Darius Morris.
Steve Nash was offered a three-year, $36 million contract from the Raptors, which was considerably more money than what he eventually received from the Lakers.
Dwight Howard remains scheduled to play for the Lakers in their regular season opener against the Mavericks.
Veteran guard Derek Fisher is eligible to return to the Los Angeles Lakers in the event that the team wants him back. NBA officials verified that the Lakers could re-sign the 38-year-old Fisher without a waiting period, ESPN.com reported. It was reported previously that Fisher could not return to the Lakers until next March because of a one-year waiting period after the Lakers...

Steve Nash is no longer a member of the Phoenix Suns, and yet, inexplicably, the Suns have decided to continue fielding a team.
Actually, we all knew it would come to this someday. We knew the Suns existed before Nash. We kind of figured they might after Nash, too.
That time has arrived. And hey, it could be considerably more grim. In fact, some people might tell you the fact Nash...
