Phil Jackson is interested in returning to work with an NBA team, only this time in a front office capacity.
"I've had some talks with people and there are some interesting situations that are presenting themselves, but I really haven't made up my mind yet what I'm going to do," said Jackson. "None of it involves coaching. ... There are three or four teams that have been interested."

This Los Angeles Lakers without Kobe Bryant, are really struggling for points and only three players have been consistent so far in the four games they have played without him.

Metta World Peace missed less than two weeks of action with the Los Angeles Lakers after undergoing knee surgery, so you can understand why he is not playing at full strength. On Friday, he underwent a minor knee-draining procedure that should help alleviate some of the pain he has been dealing with as a result of a Baker’s cyst.
He just didn’t need to show us the aftermath...

Commonly appreciated for being 6'10" and one of the best three point shooters in the NBA, Bonner's making his money against the Los Angeles Lakers not just from the work he's doing above the arc, but also the work he's putting in down low against Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol.
He played sparingly for most of the regular season, but with Boris Diaw out and...
A weird thing happened in Game 1, the Lakers (0-1) had trouble making baskets instead of preventing the other team from scoring. Usually, it's the other way around.
What's even stranger is the scoring efficiency for both teams. The Lakers actually had a better percentage in shooting at 41.1% versus 37.6% for the San Antonio Spurs (1-0). Of course, the purple and gold...
