    From Lakers insider to food truck driver
    The hand that once wrote about daily NBA schedules on a greaseboard in the Lakers' locker room now composes daily specials on a surfboard propped against a sunset-colored truck. Kona Sunset Shrimp Tacos, two for $7. The distinctive voice that once...

    To replace Jerry Buss, Lakers should dream of Jeanie

    If Jeanie Buss ran the show, could Phil Jackson's return be far behind?
    Let's take this a step further. The two basketball experts in town, Magic and Plaschke, have declared Jeanie Buss should be in charge of the Lakers. This has to be a blow to Jimmy Buss, who probably understands he also won't be Phil Jackson's choice...

    Chris Paul has Clippers thinking big, despite thumping by Spurs
    I'm thinking the best place for Dwight Howard's statue outside Staples is right beside Oscar De La Hoya's 7-foot likeness. That way they can keep the guys together who have been beaten up the most in the building. De La Hoya was 0-1 in Staples and so...

    Current Lakers owe better than this to brilliant owner Jerry Buss
    What had been softly whispered for months, almost as if saying it aloud might make a terrible thing come true, became sad and public knowledge Thursday. Lakers owner Jerry Buss, not seen this season around his beloved team and for nearly a year removed...

    Lakers' Dwight Howard says sitting out is painful for him too
    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Kobe Bryant doubled over in laughter when I asked whether he thought the day would come when Bynum played so well. Will Bynum. A runt who plays for the Pistons. Shredded the Lakers' interior defense. And by the way,...

    Lakers' great expectations become two tales of one city
    That didn't take long. On Oct. 30, one of the presumably most powerful teams in NBA history opened its season by marching on to a Staples Center floor ringed in blinding belief. On Sunday, one of the potentially most disappointing teams in NBA history...
  • He's just the man to lead the Lakers: Phil for president

    He's just the man to lead the Lakers: Phil for president
    On farewell day, they waved until their hands hurt. Kobe Bryant pleaded for Lakers management to pay millions to Dwight Howard, millions to Pau Gasol, millions for the luxury tax, anything to keep the Lakers together for the final year of his contract....

    Denver's George Karl dials back the hatred
    The unraveling of the Lakers over the season's first few weeks was so complete that not even purple-and-gold pugilist George Karl could enjoy it. The Denver Nuggets coach, you may recall, made his feelings for the team that has repeatedly knocked him out...
  • Bernie Bickerstaff's long journey through life makes time with Lakers special

    Bernie Bickerstaff's long journey through life makes time with Lakers special
    He sits on the second row. The moment he gave up the throne, he moved back to the second row. It suits him there. His journey makes sense from there. He is as close to the ushers as the superstars. He is midway between his deepest roots and wildest...
