  • Ranking the draft’s top prospects

    By Corbin Weinerman on April 17, 2014
    Last night, the Lakers’ season mercifully came to an end in San Antonio as the Lakers stopped the Spurs from matching their highest win total in franchise history. Also, the 2014 Lakers cemented their legacy as the worst Los Angeles Lakers team of all-time. The NBA remains vehemently adamant that “tanking” is bad for the game, yet some teams, *cough* […]
  • If rumors are true, John Calipari coaching Lakers would likely appease Kobe Bryant and could lure LeBron James

    By Ross Pickering on April 7, 2014
    John Calipari to the Lakers? Why not? Just before the Kentucky-UConn game this evening, a rumor was shared courtesy of former Ketucky player and NBA executive, Rex Chapman. According to Chapman, Calipari will leave Kentucky after this season – win or lose – and is a “done deal” to replace Mike D’Antoni as the head coach of the purple and […]
  • Could Kevin Ollie or Kurt Rambis be the next head coach of the Lakers?

    By Ross Pickering on April 7, 2014
    Just like the Undertaker, Mike D’Antoni is a dead man walking (sorry, I couldn’t resist a reference to last night’s Wrestlemania.) Yes, D’Antoni has lost the support of the majority of the Lakers’ fan base – though he was never truly embraced due to the whole Phil Jackson thing – and now it appears that the team’s star player has […]
  • POLL: Should the Lakers trade their lottery pick for Kevin Love?

    By Ross Pickering on March 28, 2014
    Scroll down to vote in our poll… Earlier today, an interesting Lakers rumor was shared by ESPN’s Marc Stein. According to Stein, there is a belief around the league that the Lakers will attempt to trade their upcoming lottery pick for Kevin Love. However, should the Lakers even entertain such a trade? Right now, the purple and gold are projected […]
  • Lakers Season In Review: 2013-2014

    By Joey Rudin on March 16, 2014
    It’s official. The Los Angeles Lakers are mathematically incapable of being in the playoffs.  Of course, we already knew they wouldn’t make it.  All this means is that they are more games back from the 8-seed in the West than the number of games left in the season. For this reason (and because I’m having surgery on my hand and […]
  • Lakers Week in Review: Week 19

    By Joey Rudin on March 10, 2014
    This may have been the oddest week of the season. If I told you that within 7 days, the Lakers would beat the Trail Blazers in Portland, and the Oklahoma City Thunder in LA, you wouldn’t have believed me.  I wouldn’t have believed me.  And yet it happened. If I told you that the Lakers would give up 132 to […]
  • What the Lakers must do in order to sign Kevin Love

    By Naveed Chowdhury on March 8, 2014
    There have been constant reports of Kevin Love potentially coming to Los Angeles Lakers in 2015 and, after losing Dwight Howard during the offseason, it gave the Lakers fans hope for the future. It seemed like Love coming to Los Angeles was a sure thing until he burst that bubble by basically saying that the Timberwolves currently have a better […]
  • Lakers Week in Review: Week 16

    By Joey Rudin on February 16, 2014
    Chris Kaman hit the nail on the head. After the Lakers’ most recent loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Chris Kaman said that the Lakers “are not used to winning right now.”  This may seem obvious as the Lakers have now lost 22 of their last 27 games. However, 12 out of those 22 losses were within 10 points.  This […]
  • Laker Fans: Show Steve Nash some respect

    By Alex Campos on February 14, 2014
    It figuratively kills me to say this, but Laker fans need to take note from New York Yankee fans. I understand that there are very different circumstances in baseball and basketball. The Yankees are not crippled by a salary cap. Baseball teams can spend as much money as physically possible – just look at the Los Angeles Dodgers. On Wednesday, […]
  • Lakers Week in Review: Week 15

    By Joey Rudin on February 8, 2014
    It finally happened. For the first time since January 3rd, the Lakers held their opponent under 100 points.  After giving up 64 points in the first half, the Lakers held the Philadelphia 76ers to just 34 points in the second half en route to a 112-98 win. That is a pretty encouraging half of defense, and it was spearheaded by […]
