    Interim Coach Bernie Bickerstaff tries to keep it simple for Lakers

    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...
  • 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...

    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...
  • 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...
  • Lakers' great expectations become two tales of one city

    Lakers' great expectations become two tales of one city

  • 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...
  • 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,...
  • 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...
  • Jeanie Buss talks about all things Lakers

     Jeanie Buss talks about all things Lakers
    "Born to the purple" means someone who comes into the world privileged and royal. That doesn't exactly describe Jeanie Buss. She was teenager when her father, Jerry Buss, bought the Los Angeles Lakers. After he died, Jeanie stepped into the job of...
