    Lakers begin playoffs with a '1996' vibe, and that could be bad
    The last time they tried this, it didn't go so well. The last time the Lakers attempted to win a playoff series without Kobe Bryant, they had home-court advantage, a future Hall of Famer, and absolutely no chance. The year was 1996, and after lurching...

    Mike D'Antoni's Lakers are very quick — to fall behind
    NEW YORK — How bad is it? I see Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni having lunch Thursday with Jack McCallum, who wrote about his time with D'Antoni in Phoenix in a book: ":07 Seconds or Less." And I'm asking D'Antoni if he's already working on a sequel:...

    Kobe Bryant triple-doubles down on new Lakers era
    Kobe Bryant considered it no big deal Sunday that his 22-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist performance against the Houston Rockets was his 18th triple-double, a feat that didn't inspire much more from him than a small smile. And maybe in one sense he was...

  • Turnaround is wishful thinking for Lakers

    Turnaround is wishful thinking for Lakers
    Shaq was wearing a Dodgers sweatshirt at the Clippers game, enough blue cloth there to double as a Dodger Stadium infield tarp, and he was shaking hands with Manager Don Mattingly. "That's a billboard on him," said Mattingly, who apparently didn't...

  • Feel the passion, Lakers fans, as the moral victories pile up

    Feel the passion, Lakers fans, as the moral victories pile up
    I came to Staples Center on Friday night pretty darn excited, the Lakers coming off two incredible moral victories and Magic Johnson and Jim Buss full of good cheer. Happy days are here again. Or, as Buss put it in a radio interview, "How can you not...

    It's time for Pau Gasol to assert himself
    If Pau Gasol's feelings were hurt a year ago when the Lakers tried to trade him to the Hornets for Chris Paul, his subpar performance last season is easier to understand. But when trade rumors were revived around midseason, Gasol should have been fired...

    Pau Gasol shows his versatility in Laker win over Portland
    After he swished the three-point shot that gave the Lakers a 20-point lead over the Portland Trail Blazers late in the second quarter of what would become a 104-87 thrashing, Pau Gasol pumped his fist and floated to the bench on the sound of roars from...

    Lakers blow it with hiring of Mike D'Antoni
    The Lakers say Jerry Buss, Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak were unanimous in agreement, you know, in blowing it. Everyone is so excited. We’re told it’s 95-5 that Phil Jackson will be the next Lakers’ coach, no one mentioning that the 5%...
