Tracy McGrady Feels Bad for Kobe After Watching The Lakers

The Lakers are a shell of the organization they once were. Gone are star studded names, and in their places are journeyman, and players who are a long way away from being star players. The Lakers will add the new cast of characters, to the already declining games of Pau Gasol and Steve Nash.  Nash and Gasol are box office in name only at this point in their careers. All of those...

Tracy McGrady admits he considered PED use

Performance enhancing drugs have become the scourge of every sport. While the NBA remains defiant about PED use in its sport, it exists there too. Just ask Hedo Turkoglu, O.J. Mayo and Rashard Lewis -- all pled ignorance. David Stern has said PEDs are not a problem in his sport because being buff or muscular is not important. But that is not why athletes use PEDs. They use...

Steve Blake seeks identity with Lakers

Strange question about Steve Blake — what exactly is he? Point guard or shooting guard? He has been the point man since picking up a basketball in his Florida high school days but he keeps popping up in the Lakers' starting lineup as a shooter next to Steve Nash. "I'm a utility guy. Put me at center. Why not?" Blake said. That won't happen for the 6-foot...

Doc say's no disrespect towards Lakers with banners being covered

I understand Doc on this, but I also think if this was a few years ago that non of this would have been possible.The Clippers are the hot team, and the city, and the arena owners are running with it. Doc won't come out and say it, but it is a small jab at the Lakers. I don't mind him wanting to cover up those hiatus yellow, and purple eye sores. ESPN LA "The culture...
