2014-15 NBA Preview: Houston Rockets

In the process of trying to land a third star, Houston saw some of its talent drift away, and they scrambled to replace them without losing a season. Morey has infamously flipped his players quickly and used them like assets, never worrying about the role players who got away. This led to a rich cache in goods, which they used to trade for Harden and they eventually stole Howard...

Jeremy Lin takes sane approach to his opportunity with the Lakers

If you ever meet Jeremy Lin, don't bring up the "L" word. He doesn't like it. Definitely tries to create distance from it. That wild run in New York might as well have happened three decades, not three seasons, ago. The Lakers guard now considers himself more Linteresting than Linsanity, in case you missed his online spoof of the debonair man in the popular beer...

It’s that magical time of year in the NBA, when hope springs eternal and all teams think that the upcoming season will be their best ever. While some teams will surely be rising up, the same amount will be rising down, with the rest floating along treading water (rising sideways). Since we at The Hoops Manifesto are always 100% accurate with our predictions, we’ve taken the...

One Bold Prediction For Every Laker

Jeremy Lin Lin will not start Unforunately for Lin, his bold prediction is negative.  Lin was traded to the Lakers this off-season in order for the Rockets to clear cap space and for the Lakers to compensate for their lack of moves.  The thing is Lin is an above average passer, but he hasn’t shot the ball all that well and has not been effective playing next to star players...

Lakers’ Kobe Bryant mentoring Jeremy Lin on defense

The workload for Jeremy Lin seems as heavy as any advanced course he took at Harvard. “Jeremy’s biggest challenge, which he loves, is I’m really going to challenge him to be a great defensive player because he can,” Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said. “He has the speed. He has the length. He has the size. But he’s never had to take on that challenge to be a great defensive...

Jeremy Lin says Kobe Bryant has taken a mentorship role for him

For the most part, Jeremy Lin is still working his way out of the shadows of Linsanity. His role will vary with the Lakers for the most part whether he’s backing up Steve Nash or as starting point guard. But Lin will have plenty of help in terms of veteran advice. There’s obviously Steve Nash and then there’s the maniacal Kobe Bryant. After Thursday night’s preseason game...

2014-15 NBA Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

If it weren’t for the franchise’s legendary status and the return of Kobe Bryant, the team would be lucky to have an appearance on national TV and they’d be buried under other headlines. The Lakers are an uncomfortable marriage of a rebuilding program and a flagship for their aging superstar. This is no disrespect toward Kobe or the franchise, but this is an awkward transition...

Jeremy Lin relishing opportunity to guard Kobe Bryant during practice

When Jeremy Lin was first traded to the Los Angeles Lakers back in July, most thought the move was a simple salary dump by the Houston Rockets who were looking to clear cap room in order to make a run at signing Chris Bosh. For assisting the Rockets, the Lakers received a couple of draft picks, and it was thought that Lin was simply a filler on an expiring deal. However, simply...
