Found January 09, 2013 on NBA 24/7 365:
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 General to James Harden’s Harlem Globetrotter.  Harden, who hung 31 on the Lakers, made a third-quarter statement by going up high and mashing in the seven-foot Sacre’s mug… …then put the cherry on top of Houston’s big victory by going down low and dishing the rock right through Robert’s wickets.  A guy steps in fresh out of the D-League and you’re just gonna do him like that, James?  Cold.  Real cold. What’s the deal with that celebration, though?  Excuse the potty talk, but it looked to me like Harden was taking a pretend dump on the floor.  Was he suggesting that he’d just taken a dump on Robert Sacre?  If so… I’m not sure how I feel about that.

Steve Nash wipes armpits with towel; Metta uses it on his face (Video)

Gross gross gross gross gross gross. Of course the only thing more gross than Metta World Peace using the same towel for his face that Steve Nash used to wipe his armpits is the Lakers’ record these days, but that’s besides the point. I’m guessing this isn’t what Dwight Howard had in mind when he said the Lakers needed to develop more chemistry. H/T Busted Coverage The post...

Steve Nash Doesn’t Seem To Optimistic About This Season

This quote from Steve Nash himself, can’t be good for Laker fans to hear: “I think three or four weeks ago, people would have said, ‘Oh, it will get better, right now, I definitely don’t think there’s a guarantee it will, so the only remedy is to continue to work hard and give yourself a chance for it to get better…. “I obviously think with time — and that might mean...

Video: Nash is sweaty but World Peace doesn't mind

Steve Nash and Metta World Peace have only been teammates for a few games but already their bond is tight. Perhaps a bit too tight.

It is understandable but what isn't is when same player hands...
