  • Lakers Playoff Push: The remaining six games

    By Matthew Lowry on April 7, 2013
    The Lakers are a half game above the Utah Jazz for the 8th spot in the West. Right now it looks as if the Lakers have a sense of urgancy to make the playoffs. At a point in time the Lakers struggled to reach .500 and now they control their own destiny with 6 games left in the season. Many of […]
  • Thank you, Dr. Buss

    Early Monday morning, we lost a great owner and a great man: Dr. Jerry Buss, who has owned the Los Angeles Lakers since 1979, passed away at the age of 80. I’ve been a fan of the Lakers since my first game at the Great Western Fourm and to this day I appreciate every single day of it. I’m sure everyone does, […]
  • The Lakers are running their own offense and playing team ball

    Last night the Lakers fell to the Miami Heat, making their record 17-22 as of today. Throughout the social media world and the locker room, there was the talk of “moral victory” and that they were getting close and coming together.

  • Defense is the key to the Lakers turning it around

    By Matthew Lowry on January 16, 2013
    This season so far has been one giant struggle. Lakers going on losing streaks, reaching above .500 just once this season, getting to .500 only to fall back below, injuries, the  list goes on and on.
