Robert Sacre compares Chris Kaman to Ron Burgundy

It was a long season for members of the Los Angeles Lakers as they missed the playoffs and were decimated by injuries all year long. With such struggles and adversity it can be hard to keep a good perspective on things. Lakers center Robert Sacre while doing exit interviews with the media seemed to be in good spirits. How can you not be when you compare a teammate with Ron Burgundy...

Chris Kaman, Jordan Hill open to Lakers return depending on changes this summer

Today is day one of the Lakers’ 2014 exit interviews, and one thing is clear: The guards love Mike D’Antoni (well, aside from Kobe Bryant who is now on vacation in France) and the bigs hate him. OK, hate may be a bit of an extreme word – after all, nobody really has a bad word for D’Antoni as a person – though it’s obvious that his system doesn’t cater for the big guys...

Chris Kaman on why the Lakers signed him: “I don’t really know”

This has been such an odd season with a lot of strange stories, though the strangest may be The Chris Kaman Story. When Kaman was signed by the Lakers during July’s free agency, many speculated – including myself – that the purple and gold had plans to trade Pau Gasol and use The Caveman as the Spaniard’s replacement. Why else would the Lakers spend $3.2 million on a player...

Lakers ‘leaning toward’ keeping Mike D’Antoni

The Los Angeles Lakers are 25-49 and on pace to finish with their worst record in 54 years.  But that doesn’t mean head coach Mike D’Antoni will be fired after the season. According to Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report, the Lakers are leaning toward keeping D’Antoni for at least one more season. D’Antoni has one more guaranteed season left on his Lakers contract, and the club...

Chris Kaman went from playing five minutes on Friday night to becoming the first Laker since Shaquille O’Neal to record 28 points, 17 rebounds and 6 assists just a few days later. Of course, this season has been extremely crazy, so this strange turn of events isn’t really all that surprising. Kaman recorded his impressive stat line in just 32 minutes of play.

Chris Kaman regrets signing with Lakers?

And in the not so breaking news section: It appears that Chris Kaman regrets his decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers. After signing with the Lakers this past summer, Kaman has appeared in just 37 of the team’s 72 games and has had a poor relationship with head coach Mike D’Antoni all year long. In fact, Kaman recently revealed that he hasn’t talked to D’Antoni for...

Chris Kaman starts after arriving ten minutes before game.

The Lakers flew to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks Thursday, and center Chris Kaman stayed behind for personal reasons. He then caught a commercial flight and joined his team at the arena ten minutes prior to tip-off.  No big deal, Kaman didn’t even need to warm up. He started the game and scored 13 points in the loss. Chris Kaman has arrived at the arena in Milwaukee. He might...

Chris Kaman Finally Gets Start for Lakers, Shows Up 10 Minutes Before Gametime

Chris Kaman hasn’t exactly had what one would call a successful season with the Lakers. Earlier this year, Kaman famously was seen lying down on the bench during a game against the Cavs in which Los Angeles had to take a technical to keep Robert Sacre in the game after he fouled out. He also apparently hasn’t spoken with coach Mike D’Antoni in three weeks due to the reduced...

Chris Kaman says he hasn’t talked to Mike D’Antoni in three weeks

Kobe Bryant doesn’t seem to get along with Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni, though that’s a message sent through anonymous sources. Want a Lakers veteran willing to go on the record about his issues with D’Antoni? Look no further than Chris Kaman. Safe to say, Kaman’s excitement was sarcasm. He hadn’t played in the Lakers last 10 games and has missed 35 games overall due...

Chris Kaman Hasn’t Talked to D’Antoni in 3 Weeks

D’Antoni is coaching like a man who knows he is going to be fired, so he isn’t going out of his way to be buddy buddy with any of his players. Can’t say that I am surprised by this.

WATCH: Nick Young launches 3-pointer, celebrates too early

Phil Jackson’s first visit to Staples Center as an employee of the New York Knicks ended up being a nightmare he’d probably like to forget. The Knicks surrendered 51 points to the Lakers in the third quarter — franchise records for most points given up in a quarter and most points scored in a quarter, respectively. That’s right, the 2013-14 Lakers, featuring a starting lineup...
