The Country’s Top Up & Coming Recruiter Is Reportedly In The Mix To Join Pitino’s Staff

Earlier this week we learned that Indiana assistant coach Kenny Johnson was in the mix for the vacant spot on Rick Pitino’s staff. It doesn’t appear that Johnson has been offered the job at this point, but Scout.com reports that he’ll surely accept if offered. In the past 24 hours another name has surfaced as a potential replacement for Kevin Keatts. Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports...

Lakers end season finale with 113-100 victory over Spurs

It's all over. The Los Angeles Lakers ended their 2013-2014 season with a 113-100 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, their record at 27-55 after another grueling season. What goes up must come down, or in this case, what's already down must be put down mercifully. Goodbye '13-14 Lakers. We'll likely hardly know ye' going forward. It's fascinating to watch...

Grizzlies pull away from Lakers 102-90

The Lakers gave out gas cards, fast-food coupons and casino getaways on fan appreciation night. They couldn't give their fans a victory, much like the rest of the season. The Memphis Grizzlies needed a win to help stay in playoff contention and got it, 102-90, Sunday at Staples Center. The Lakers (25-55) added to their most losses ever and finished 14-27 at home, their worst...

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...

Wesley Johnson hopes to re-sign with Lakers

Wesley Johnson, a former 4th overall pick back in 2010 is having a great second half of the season.Image via: Wikimedia CommonsWhat is really ironic is that Johnson had a career high 29 pts against the Lakers back in 2011.

Lakers Beat Trail-Blazers and Now Face Pelicans

Game Report: Lakers (21-39) defeat Trail Blazers (41-19) – 107-106

The Lakers, who’ve won roughly one-third of their games, went into Portland and beat the Blazers, who’ve won roughly two-thirds of theirs. Go figure. After leading for most of the game, the Lakers bumbled badly down the stretch, missing eight consecutive shots over a span of six minutes until Wesley Johnson scored on a set play in the final seconds to give the Lakers a 107-106...

VIDEO: Wesley Johnson scores game-winning alley-oop on inbounds pass from Kent Bazemore versus Portland

What an amazing end to an amazing game. On a night where Wesley Johnson helped make Mike D’Antoni’s “small ball” strategy work to perfection against a bigger Portland Trail Blazers team, it was only right that he would end up scoring the game-winner, too. With 7.1 seconds left in the fourth quarter and the Lakers trailing by one, D’Antoni drew up a sneaky play that was...

Grizzlies fend off Lakers

MEMPHIS -- It's never been about looks for the Memphis Grizzlies. Ugly is just fine, especially now. The Grizzlies need all the wins they can get -- and a little bit of help -- to find some comfort near the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. A 108-103 win against the depleted Lakers Wednesday was as good a win as any at this point. Here are three observations from the...

Gasol Rips D’Antoni’s Coaching & Says Lakers Are Selfish

Pau didn’t pull any punches after the Lakers lost to the Pacers. Basically, he ripped everyone. Gasol indirectly challenged coach Mike D’Antoni to take control of his team that the 33-year old believes is being sabotaged by selfish play. “That’s why you have to be disciplined and implement discipline, that’s how you kind of make that better or make that not a factor,...

Lakers 2014 Draft Prospects: Wesley Johnson thinks L.A. should draft Jabari Parker

If the NBA’s lottery were held today, the Los Angles Lakers would be projected to own the fourth overall pick and would have a 10.35 percent chance of ending up with the number one overall pick in June’s draft. For that reason, there’s a lot of talk around Lakerland regarding the top prospects from this year’s draft class. While ESPN’s Mock Draft still has Joel Embiid as...
