In game one of the Western Conference semi-finals between the Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. One team came out ready and fully engaged, the other… Lakers get blown out in game one, 90-119. Turnovers and no defense of the pick & roll were huge factors plus the Thunder shot extremely well. But that’s how [...]

OKLAHOMA CITY—The Thunder smacked the Lakers in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal series. There are nicer ways to say it but the way that the Lakers lost this one was not pretty.
To read this story and watch a recap video please click the link below.
When Kobe Bryant was asked whether or not the Lakers’ players could guard the Thunder players during a press conference after LA’s game one loss in the second round of the western conference playoffs, Kobe responded by simply saying “no”.
Kobe seems to be sarcastic or even a bit insulted by the question, but the proof is in the box score. The Lakers got blown out by the...
Michael Jordan has said it himself; only Kobe Bryant deserves comparisons to His Airness. And who are we to disagree?
If you follow this blog you know that we shine the hell out of Michael Jordan the basketball player, and deservedly so. MJ is not only the best play who ever lived, he may be the best athlete that was ever created. It’s that serious over here. With that said, Kobe...

After hitting the game-clinching shot in game seven of the Lakers/Nuggets playoff series, Kobe Bryant decided to high-five some of the celebrity Lakers fans in courtside seats. Watch as Kobe high fives singer/actor Justin Timberlake who returns the favor:
Lakers star Kobe Bryant says he doesn't take charges, and he's
got a reason for it.
The Oklahoma City Thunder came into Game 1 against the Lakers after a layoff of over a week.
Many were calling into question whether or not the young Thunder team would be affected by this long layoff, but a 119-90 win over the Lakers proved that they were only helped by the time off.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook proved to be way too much for the Lakers to handle in Game 1...
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Kevin Durant scored 22 points and rattled in the go-ahead basket on a baseline runner with 18 seconds left, and the Oklahoma City Thunder scored the final nine points to rally for a 77-75 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals Wednesday night.
Oklahoma City trailed by seven with 2 minutes left before surging back...
Many times after basketball games conclude, we prescribe emotions to a team or player just because of the results. When the Los Angeles Lakers came back to defeat the Boston Celtics in Game 7 two seasons ago, we described Kobe Bryant as indomitable because he rebounded a heap of misses and the Lakers prevailed. Partially, our description was true. Bryant surely wanted that game...
After Kobe Bryant made a key shot in the final minute of the Los Angeles Lakers' series-clinching win over the Denver Nuggets Saturday night, he gave a high-five to Justin Timberlake in the front row while running back on defense.

Some professional athletes rise up when everything is on the line while others crumble and can’t respond to the pressure. When Kobe Bryant needed his Lakers teammates to step-up when he was sick earlier this week, a #2 superstar on the Lakers was hard to find. In the Lakers 113-96 Game 6 loss earlier this week to the Denver Nuggets, Bryant was able to gut out 31 points, while playing...
While the Oklahoma City Thunder cruised past the Dallas Mavericks the Los Angeles Lakers needed seven games to get pass the Denver Nuggets. There is no question that the Thunder will be well rested for the Lakers.
Scoring champ Kevin Durant picked up right where he left off in the regular season. In the series against the Mavs Durant averaged 26.5 points per game and...
