After losing Kobe Bryant to a season-ending injury, the Lakers face a summer full of questions. Will they keep the core of Kobe, Nash, Gasol, and Howard together or will they start brand new? Will Dwight Howard re-sign with the team or will he bolt to another team? Will Kobe Bryant be the same player when he returns from his achilles injury?
If it is over for the Lakers, there is nothing to be ashamed of. They have been blessed enough to have one of the greatest competitors of all-time in Kobe Bryant. Since last year, the Lakers have been the big brother of the Los Angeles Clippers. Kobe’s squad has had a dynamite winning percentage over the last ten seasons or so.
Pau Gasol came to Kobe Bryant’s rescue in the 2007-2008 season. Kobe had demanded a trade but the Lakers were able to convince him to stay by trading for Gasol. The Lakers won back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010. Their run as one of the NBA’s elite teams ended after the 2010-2011 season. The Lakers were despera...

Magic Johnson took to Twitter to slam Lakers center Dwight Howard for getting ejected during the second quarter of the team's season-ending loss to the Spurs.
RIGHT ON SCHEDULE
Lakers fans were heard chanting "we want Phil!" during their team's Game 3 loss to the Spurs. See video of the chants here.
Steve Nash is trying to avoid paying child support to his ex-wife. See what the Lakers guard is arguing to support his case.
Dwight Howard was ejected from Game 4 between the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs at Staples Center after receiving his second technical foul, and two notable occurrences happened afterwards.
With the Lakers down 55-34 in the third quarter, Howard got tangled with Aron Baynes. He appeared to be upset about not getting a call and he must have said something to an official...
The Lakers got the last thing they ever needed was Kobe Bryant going down. The second to last thing they needed was to lose Dwight Howard in an elimination game due to a second technical foul early in the second half.
It has been a rough season for Dwight Howard. Heck, its been a rough couple of years for the big man. From his inglorious departure from Orlando to his landing...
The Los Angeles Lakers are once again going to be shorthanded against the San Antonio Spurs, as you can officially add Metta World Peace to the team’s long list of players that will be sidelined due to injury. Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters – including Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles – that World Peace wanted to “give it a go” for Game 4, but the team elected...
It's alright, Kobe. Not even you could watch this video without giggling in amazement; after all, this is the Keyboard Cat. And it is glorious.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace had his knee drained prior to Game 3, and his play was clearly impacted by the procedure. In speaking with reporters – including Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles – after the game, World Peace referred to himself as the “weak link” and said that he “probably” will not play in Sunday’s Game 4 matchup against the San Antonio...
The Los Angeles Lakers are certain to be without guard Steve Blake tonight when they take on the San Antonio Spurs. There is also a chance that they'll be without fellow guards Steve Nash and Jodie Meeks, who are both considered doubtful to play in Game 3.D’Antoni: “Realistically Meeks is more doubtful than Nash, but we’ll see how they feel.” Morris, Goudelock &...
Magic: "I've never let my team down"
Dwight Howard pulled a typical Dwight Howard move during Game 4, getting ejected and quite possibly walking off the court as a Laker for the last time.
Andrew Goudelock was called upon by the Los Angeles Lakers in desperation.
The team lost both of its starting guards (Steve Nash and Steve Blake) to injury and had two other on the team that couldn't play the whole game despite a short rotation. This would be his first NBA playoff game with one of the league's most richest franchise's.
A normal player would&...

Down 2 games to 0, the Los Angeles Lakers may be holding on for dear life in the team’s first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs heading into Friday’s Game 3 match-up at Staples Center, but that doesn’t mean Metta World Peace isn’t doing everything in his power to make sure that he is ready to take the court and compete. On Friday, MWP tweeted photos providing compelling...
