Christian Eyenga scored 22 points on 10-for-15 shooting for the Lakers.
Things in Lakerland appear to be brightening up. Keystone Light connoisseur Steve Nash is now handling the point. It’s apparently still not out of the question for Dwight Howard to join the team. And now Kobe Bryant is lending his support behind the beleaguered Pau Gasol.
After a markedly disappointing regular season and playoffs, Gasol became the scapegoat by many for the Lakers’...
Jordan Hill's agent says the backup big man is returning to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Kevin Bradbury tweeted the news Friday about Hill, who made a late-season surge for the Lakers.
Los Angeles acquired the 6-foot-10 forward at the trade deadline in March in the deal that sent Derek Fisher to Houston.
Hill played in just seven games in the regular season, but seized postseason...
You think Kobe Bryant has backed off his widely discussed and controversial belief that the current U.S. Olympic hoops team would beat the 1992 Dream Team? Think again. After all, this is Kobe Bryant we’re talking about.
The debate that seemingly doesn’t want to go away was revived again on Saturday in Spain when Kobe was asked if he’s reconsidered his stance.
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a video of some guys handing Lakers point guard Steve Nash a can of Keystone Light.Apparently, some people might have believed that the video was staged and thought that the folks at Keystone Light had something to do with it.The fine folks over at TMZ did some investigative reporting and found out that they had nothing to do with...
Jason WhitneyIn an interesting interview reported by Basket4Us, Kobe Bryant has announced that he would like to join Barcelona in three years.

The Olympic Village is traditionally a place where world class athletes come together and share a common admiration for each other and their exploits. As athletes arrived in the United Kingdom for the fast-approaching start to the 2012 Games, it turns out that both the Australian swimming team and the Team USA basketball squad are sharing the same Manchester hotel.
A show of...
It’s about time for another Andrew Bynum to Cleveland rumor to heat up. Until Dwight Howard is officially traded to another team, the Cavaliers will likely be linked to such dealings because they are able to make it work. But only giving up Anderson Varejao and some draft picks for arguably the second best center in the League? Sounds a little too good to be true if you ask me...
According to a report from Yahoo! Sports, the Cleveland Cavaliers will only participate as the third team in a deal that could send Dwight Howard to Los Angeles if Andrew Bynum signs a contract extension with the team.
The Lakers want the framework of the three team deal agreed in principle before allowing the Cavaliers to speak to Andrew Bynum about his willingness to sign a contract...
Take note Dwight Howard and all you other aspiring Jock/digital stars, Steve Nash continues to pump out content via The NOC readying himself for phase two of his career once he leaves the NBA. Check out his latest parody video where Steve embraces his inner Vito Corleone with the help of a few grapes in [...]
As we all know the Thunder have set a pretty high bar in the Western Conference as the team to beat. I know it was only one Final’s run but, do you really see anybody comparable in the West? I didn’t until I heard that Dwight might sign the extension. I know Kobe said he would leave the league in two but, if Dwight is there for five Kobe may stay a bit longer. Kobe is no longer...

Julian Khazzouh is one of five names that Australian National Basketball League fans will know in the 2012 NBA Summer League. Whilst his Los Angeles Lakers teammate, Ater Majok has not made as much of an impression, the former Sydney Kings big man has performed a very nice audition in his final Summer League game.
