JAMES WORTHY RUMORS & GOSSIP

James Worthy says Lakers still have “a shot” at landing Carmelo Anthony

The Lakers are out of the Carmelo Anthony race, right? Not according to this Lakers legend. Big Game James Worthy was a part of the Lakers’ pitch to Melo last week and revealed a few details of the meeting to SLAM Magazine today, and for what it’s worth, Worthy thinks the purple and gold still have “a shot” at landing the 30-year-old All-Star. “Carmelo has an open mind...

We’re […]

The greatest steal in Celtics Finals history that nobody talks about

We all know the holy trinity of clutch steals in Celtics playoff history.  Bird’s steal against Detroit in Game 5 of the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals.  Gerald Herderson’s pick-off of James Worthy’s lazy pass in Game 2 of the 1984 NBA Finals.  And of course, HAVLICEK STOLE THE BALL!!!!!!!  We could debate which ranks first out of those three but no doubt they were all...

Lakers News: James Worthy to represent team at 2014 draft lottery

James Worthy was the last number one pick by the Los Angeles Lakers way back in 1982. That’s why it makes perfect sense for the organization to select Big Game James to represent the purple and gold at this year’s draft lottery. The Lakers announced today that Worthy would be attending the lottery on May 20th and, as the team’s last number one pick, he’ll hopefully bring...

James Worthy’s message to the Lakers: “Don’t practice offense anymore”

James Worthy loves a good old rant and last night was no exception. After the Lakers had their worst loss (statistically) in franchise history against the Clippers last night, Worthy went off during the post-game show on Time Warner Cable: SportsNet. And, as usual, the Lakers legend was critical of the team’s defense, so much so that he actually suggested that the team no longer...

Jeff Green Gets Much Respect from James Worthy

I think Scal was the first person I heard who compared Jeff Green to Laker great James Worthy. Then it kind of caught on because I heard both Mike and Tommy make those comparisons. And fans were starting to make the comparison on a regular basis. Then he dunked on Jason Kidd and we got the comparison again. But Jeff didn't like being compared to James Worthy without Worthy...

Worthy not crowning Lakers yet

It would be hard to find a Los Angeles Laker fan who is not claiming the 2013 NBA title before the season even starts. There is no denying that adding Dwight Howard and Steve Nash to the team make them an immensely better team, but just how good? One of the greatest Lakers of all time is not ready to give L.A. the trophy just yet. James Worthy likes their chances, but does not put...

James Worthy: Miami Heat still have advantage over Lakers

  Los Lakers Lakers fans pretty much believe they have the Western Conference in the bag, after all, the measly likes of Kevin Durant, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and Serge Ibaka can’t possibly keep up with the age advanced Lakers (sarcasm font). Thus, they are already looking at the 2013 NBA Finals against the tenacious [...]

Lakers Legend James Worthy 'Wasn't a Fan' of Dwight Howard's 'Nonsense' in Orlando

James Worthy was known throughout his career as someone who perferred to play rather than talk, but his role as a studio analyst for the Lakers has him doing more of the latter and he has some thoughts on new Laker big man Dwight Howard. The Los Angeles Times reports Worthy took aim at Howard and the drawn out saga that began with Howard expressing his desire to play in a bigger...
