Tweet Let’s do a quick recap: the storied Los Angeles Lakers are a disappointing 9-13 so far this season, despite bringing in Dwight Howard, Steve Nash (currently injured) and hiring head coach Mike D’Antoni instead of the legendary Phil Jackson (the same Mike D’Antoni that blew his cool with a L.A. Times reporter earlier this [...]


Steve Nash on return to Los Angeles Lakers: I’m not even in shape

The Los Angeles Lakers are crumbling. The primary response to their recent addiction to losing is that they are waiting on point guard Steve Nash to return from injury to get the party started. New coach Mike D’Antoni’s system has flourished in the past with Nash at the helm. Cutting to the chase, it’s going to be some time before Nash returns according to his recent comments...

Phil Jackson Wouldn’t Return to Lakers If Asked

Phil Jackson told a camera crew on Wednesday night that, if asked, he would not return to the Los Angeles Lakers bench as their head coach. As Jackson was being filmed by a camera crew from TMZ, one reporter asked if Jackson would return “if they offered you the gig?” Jackson then responded with a [...]

Magic Johnson: Lakers are misusing Pau Gasol, who needs to be in the post

The Los Angeles Lakers are struggling mightily. They have lost eight of their last 11 games and look to be getting worse by the day — particularly on defense late in games. Pau Gasol has been sidelined with a knee injury and has missed the last five games. Four of those have been losses, and Magic Johnson believes the absence of Gasol has been a major factor. “Gasol, to me, is...

Kobe: It Isn't Fair To Blame D'Antoni For Lakers' Struggles

Kobe Bryant spoke harshly about the Lakers struggles after their loss to the Knicks.

Mike D’Antoni tells reporter he’s starting to piss him off when questioned about Lakers defense

The Lakers are 9-13 and look like trash on defense. We know the Lakers are currently without Pau Gasol and Steve Nash but is Nash really going to save the season? At a little over 20 games into the NBA season, almost a quarter of the way in, it might be time to hit the [...]

Lakers end skid by holding off Wizards

WASHINGTON -- After the scuffling Los Angeles Lakers lost their fourth consecutive game Thursday in New York, Kobe Bryant expressed a desire for an immediate matchup against the Washington Generals, the Harlem Globetrotters inept foil. For what ailed the Lakers, the Washington Wizards proved a worthy replacement. Bryant scored 30 points and Jodie Meeks had 24 as the Lakers snapped...

Lakers vs. Knicks Wrap Up

The Lakers coaching staff was pretty much thrown together a couple weeks back and it showed last night against the Knicks.  Kobe Bryant was having some lower back troubles and needed assistance from the Knicks training staff.  Not a good look for your team Mike D'Antoni.  The Lakers would go down big early before fighting back late in the game and ultimately losing 116...

Preview: Lakers vs. Knicks

Despite being the only team in the NBA that have yet to lose at home and being a game and a half in front of the defending champions for the top spot in the east, the New York Knicks (16-5) will not be the subject of conversation for tonight's first matchup with the Lakers (9-13). Nothing against the Knicks, but that's how it goes when the team that's been synonymous...

Lakers-Wizards Preview

Kobe Bryant would like to see the Los Angeles Lakers play the Washington Generals next. That won't happen but they will instead see the league's worst team that hails from the nation's capital. The struggling Lakers have been defenseless during a four-game losing streak heading into Friday night's road matchup with the Washington Wizards. The Lakers (9-14) fell...

Reporters Are Pissing Off Mike D'Antoni

Life is not all well and good in Lakerland.  Reporters are asking tough questions about defense that the head coach can't answer because well, Mike D'Antoni has never been able to answer that question.  Few knew this move would not work out because we see the real problems with the Lakers (defense) opposed to the fantasies by company men and fans who think the problems...
