Do The Basketball Gods have any love for the Lakers?

First off if you know me, you know I’m a diehard Lakers fan and some of this post will make you laugh, some might make you mad, but hey it’s all my opinion. It could be right, wrong or indifferent. I just wanted to get that off my chest before I start a little rant about my favorite NBA squad. The Lakers off-season started early this 2013-14 season soon as Kobe broke his knee...

Love for McDermott? Bulls rookie waits out trade rumors

Bulls rookie Doug McDermott admitted on Tuesday that he was close to settling on a place in Chicago. And yes, he’s likely renting rather than buying. Smart decision. While the Kevin Love-Bulls trade rumors have seemingly quieted down to an almost complete silence, according to a source, the team was still in pursuit of the Minnesota All-Star forward, and that meant the package...

Thunder wanting to upgrade its offense is the right way to go

Roll call on the Thunder summer. Drafted Mitch McGary. Tried to sign Pau Gasol. Did sign Anthony Morrow. Re-signed Grant Jerrett. Let’s see. A rookie with all kinds of offensive talent but probably not ready for NBA defensive assignments. A former superstar who isn’t the player he used to be but still has a great set of ball skills. The NBA’s second-best shooter, behind only...

Kobe’s message to Carlos Boozer

Carlos Boozer was recently amnestied by the Chicago Bulls, who brought in former Laker forward, Pau Gasol, to fill the void at power-forward. The Los Angeles Lakers responded by snatching up Boozer off of waivers. Boozer is now a Laker, and reportedly had a conversation with Lakers’ great, Kobe Bryant. The message Kobe sent to Boozer was one we’d all expect Kobe to send. “Be...

Gasol talks about telling Kobe that he had decided to sign with Chicago

Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant have been through a lot playing together for six seasons and having won two championships in that span (I still think there should be an asterisk next to the 2010 championship because of Perk going down).So, naturally it was tough for Gasol to tell Bryant that he was leaving the Lakers for less money to join what could be a potential contender in the Chicago...

Report: Bulls Trying to Trade for Kevin Love

The Bulls just signed Pau Gasol, so it would be a curious move to try to bring love in as well. But, according to ESPN that is the move they are trying to make. Sources say that the Bulls, though, have this re-entered the race and would appear to be the biggest threat to the Cavs, thanks largely to the Golden State Warriors’ resolute unwillingness to add longtime Wolves target...
