    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...

    Bill Walton never takes a timeout from talking
    In a week when you thought you might have heard it all, I present to you Bill Walton speaking to USC students and bashing UCLA basketball. "I never knew they had pretty girls here at USC," began Walton, one of UCLA's all-time greats, after being...

    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...
  • Clippers at a crossroads with Doc Rivers decision

     Clippers at a crossroads with Doc Rivers decision
    It was the summer when a good NBA team was bold enough to become a great one. It was 1999, and the team was led by two stars who had carried it to three consecutive playoff appearances. But each time it had fallen short of the NBA Finals and been swept...
  • Lakers' great expectations become two tales of one city

    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...
  • Think the Lakers should let Dwight Howard go? Think again

    Think the Lakers should let Dwight Howard go? Think again
    We have a major difference of opinion. And I understand why you are wrong. You began the season thinking, and being told by the media, the Lakers were going to be great because they had so much talent. You didn't get it in the first five games, so Mike...
  • Dwight Howard's departure from Lakers is best for all concerned

    Dwight Howard's departure from Lakers is best for all concerned
    The Lakers didn't lose a center, they dodged a bullet. Take a hike, Dwight, and don't let your cape hit you on the way out. Dwight Howard has been formally chased out the door of basketball's greatest franchise by its legacy, its pressure, and,...
  • Mike D'Antoni takes chants, still hopes to turn them to cheers

    Mike D'Antoni takes chants, still hopes to turn them to cheers
    It is the chant that has defined the season, yet somehow has not defined the man. The most amazing thing about the derisive jeer that has rained upon Mike D'Antoni's slumped shoulders for the last six months is that not once has he jeered back. "We want...
  • In the list of great Lakers accomplishments, this isn't one of them

    In the list of great Lakers accomplishments, this isn't one of them
    Yay? One of the most hyped teams in NBA history fell exhaustedly into the playoffs Wednesday. Appropriately, it happened with only three hours left in the season. Fittingly, it was clinched when they were just standing around. Ten minutes before the...
  • For Kobe Bryant, Lakers' woes are question of characters

    For Kobe Bryant, Lakers' woes are question of characters
    CLEVELAND — A rattled and clueless Mike D'Antoni, asked whether this latest Lakers' debacle against a Cleveland team with only four wins was embarrassing, said: "No. "It's basketball. I hate it. I'm down. But I'm not embarrassed … that's...
  • Phil Jackson's agent disputes story on UCLA search

    Phil Jackson's agent disputes story on UCLA search
    The other day I wrote a funny story, which failed to get a laugh out of Phil Jackson's agent, Todd Musburger. The way I heard it, UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero called Musburger's office, and talked to his son, Brian, about Jackson helping UCLA...
