Tweet When the Los Angeles Lakers fired Mike Brown, there was a great deal of speculation about whether or not Phil Jackson would be hired. The Lakers eventually went with Mike D’Antoni and reportedly scorned Jackson by giving the impression that he would be hired. After that door closed, Jackson says that he will probably [...]

Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, recently finalized the sale of one of her three Southern California mansions, TMZ reports. Kobe signed the couple’s three properties over to her wife when they were beginning divorce proceedings in late 2011. Vanessa listed the 6,000 square foot mansion on sale for $3.75 million in September. TMZ reports and a listing service confirms that the property...
According to Chris Sheridan, Phil Jackson will not return as coach this season.
"I have no intention of ever coaching again," said Jackson told SheridanHoops.com.
Jackson and the Lakers briefly discussed a third partnership before the team turned instead to hire Mike D'Antoni. While Jackson never explicitly stated he would re-join the Lakers if offered the position...
Although it seems pretty bad, Dwight Howard is saying his shoulder injury isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The Los Angeles Lakers announced that Howard had a torn labrum in his shoulder, but Howard clarified yesterday. He said the injury is actually a separation from the bone - still a tear, though in medical terms.Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles says...
I was sincerely pulling for Robert Sacre to have a good game in his first start in place of the injured Dwight Howard… mostly because I wanted the Lakers to win, because that just would’ve been funny. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened. Sacre did score 10 points, but, as the Lakers got blown out 125-112, he grabbed just three rebounds in 27 minutes and played Washington...
Just so everyone is aware, the Los Angeles Lakers lost, again. They were beat up by the Rockets and their problem may have been due to the lineup they put out on the court. The team is missing Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol, and we all know that Kobe Bryant can be a ball-hog at times, but this was taking it to another level. For what it is worth, this was Chris Webber’s suggestion H/T Game On!
Things are not going as planned this season for the Los Angeles Lakers, and fans are none too pleased. The Lakeshow have managed a paltry 15-18 record even with the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. While we believe that it is easily no one player which is the root of the problem, this plea to have Gasol fired is pretty phenomenal. The icing on the cake is the Sarah McLachlan...
What’s the best assist in Steve Nash’s career? This one from last night in Houston during the Lakers 125-112 loss. Even on a milestone night where he eclipsed the 10,000 career assist mark, the magician pulled a fast one on teammate Metta World Peace. After exiting the huddle Nash wiped his nose/mouth, both arms and both armpits.
Metta, who appeared to witness the whole sweat...
Funny stuff. Somebody remixed Sarah McLachlan’s PSA for the ASPCA into a PSA for trading Pau Gasol. The video has gone viral over the last 48 hours and is guaranteed to make you laugh:
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”:
Once an elite NBA power, though it’s still not too late, the 15-19 depleted Los Angeles Lakers have flown into San Antonio to visit the (27-10) San Antonio Spurs.
With the Lakers comes a lot of media, only Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich doesn’t really pay too much attention to what’s going on out in Hollywood.
“I don’t think about it,” said Coach Pop when asked...
While Metta World Peace tried to do his part, the Los Angeles Lakers couldn't overcome the loss of three frontcourt players, including a pair of All-Stars, during their opener to a brief road trip through Texas.
The Lakers will attempt to end that two-game trek on a more positive note Wednesday night but have the daunting task of trying to snap the San Antonio Spurs' 10...
