Well at least they beat the worst team in the league (Charlotte Bobcats). Then again, that was at home, inside the comforts of Staples...

13-26 – The Detroit Pistons are 13-26, almost the exact opposite of the Lakers’ record to date, and the Lakers STILL could not pull...

The buzzer sounded to signal the end of the third quarter. Frustrated with his last miss, Lebron James shoved the closest player in front of him, innocent bystander, Troy Murphy. Seeing this, Pau Gasol stepped in and pushed Lebron James back, which was followed by Udonis Haslem pushing Gasol. In came Metta to administer some World Peace. Gasol walked away, glaring at James on his way to the bench. Gasol and James were hit with double technicals as a result. Frankly, that was a technical well-spent for the resident Spaniard and the Lakers.

Despite their losing record (12-24 after tonight’s game), the Sacramento Kings are a young, energetic team teamed up with a handful of veterans. It’s a group filled with a lot of talent, and today, they gave the Lakers everything they had, forcing the home team to work until the very end. Seven Kings’ players scored in double figures and they played a clean game, giving away the ball on only five occasions. But it wasn’t enough.

Well, of course Kobe Bryant played tonight. Of course he passed every test to assure his condition post-concussion was game ready. Of course he...

A big show – that’s what All-Star Weekend usually is. Yes, there is a game to be played, yes, a collection of the league’s best players are in the same arena to go head-to-head, and yes, it’s a three-day event that entertains. It also signals a break in the NBA schedule – a short hiatus, if you will. But in this abbreviated regular season, mired by the effects of a long lockout, this All-Star Weekend provided something more than entertainment. It provided some hope for the NBA’s millions of fans.

In their last two visits to Oklahoma City, the veteran Lakers defeated the young Thunder and the player formerly known as Ron Artest was...

Everything is bigger in Texas…especially when Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol are in town. On the first night of a back to back, the Lakers arrived in Dallas fresh off a week’s worth of, “he said, they said, no one said.” Tonight, however, they let their playing do the talking, and in the end, the men in purple got the last word.

  Pau Gasol walked down the regular line of teammates before the game, hugging and bumping chests along the way. Whatever words were uttered by...

The latter part of the third quarter had all the makings of a huge comeback for the Lakers – 27 points down, everything going...

  When it comes to the Phoenix Suns, Kobe Bryant is always ready to unleash his fury; fury over the team who eliminated his Lakers...

Home, sweet home. In their first game back from the Grammy road trip that produced a 3-3 record, the Lakers were more than happy to...

The Lakers led 2-0, then 4-3 to start the game. Then they fell behind by as many as 14 and then scraped their way...

The Lakers and the Celtics may be rivals. They may hate each other for as long as the NBA has existed, to eons into...
