The Lakers went to watch the movie "Lincoln" as a team, and Kobe cracked a funny joke about it.
We all know Steve Nash agreed to join the Lakers via a sign-and-trade deal last summer to give himself a shot at capturing his first NBA title. What may come as somewhat of a surprise is how badly he supposedly wanted to play with Pau Gasol. While I’m sure the prospect of playing alongside future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant was exciting, Nash was reportedly given a guarantee Gasol...
Earlier in the week, Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant called out teammate Pau Gasol and said that he needs to “put on his big boy pants.” Needless to say, the entire Lakers team has not played well, and it isn’t just Gasol that has had a hard time adjusting to all the new pieces and [...]
A couple of days ago, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant was quoted by media members telling Pau Gasol to put on his "big boy pants".Well, it appears that Gasol and the Lakers forgot their "big boy pants" as they blew a 13-point lead in a loss to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.During the Houston radio telecast of the game, announcer Craig Ackerman celebrated...
The Raptors would likely build a trade for Pau Gasol centered around Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon.
The Lakers saw the movie "Lincoln" together Thursday evening, a film that elicited mixed reactions from the players.
Tweeted Pau Gasol: "We've watched "Lincoln"! Very good movie! It describes one of the most important moments in the history of the USA. Highly recommended!"
Jordan Hill was not as impressed.
"I fell asleep 8 times," he...

Dwight Howard continues to struggle at the free throw line, but he and Mike D'Antoni believe it is a non-issue.
Quote of the night goes to Houston Rockets radio voice Craig Ackerman with the epic call at the end of the Rockets’ game against the Los Angeles Lakers. After losing to the Magic, Kobe Bryant said the struggling Pau Gasol needed to “put on his big boy pants”. After giving up a 17 point lead, the Houston Rockets defeated the Lakers and Ackerman proclaimed, “The Lakers...
Similar to Ricky Rubio and backyard wrestling, Dwight Howard gives ghost hunting a try in this new Foot Locker x adidas commercial:
There was something different about the night of Sunday, December 2, 2012. Something that is a rarity in modern day professional athletics. Sometimes there are not rational explanations for why unexpected events occur. The numbers do not always tell the entire story and you do not play a basketball game on paper. The only numbers that really mattered on this night were 113 and...
I pounded on the Lakers yesterday, and I mine as well do it again. After all, I’m not a huge Kobe Bryant fan nor do I pretty much like anyone on the team. Dwight Howard, the whining baby who wanted out of Orlando, and Co. deserve this sh$t. Thanks to TerezOwens for the picture….
A let down would have been understandable for the Magic as they traveled upstate from an emotional victory over the Lakers on Sunday night. Even Orlando fans might have excused it thanks to the gravity of what defeating Dwight Howard meant to a lot of fans.
Jacque Vaughn though called it a "typical win."
Again, it certainly was not that. But maybe it is becoming...
