    Andy Kamenetzky

    After Tuesday's lemon against Indiana, this was just what the doctor ordered. Defensively, there were issues, particularly when it came to stopping ball penetration. But the Lakers played with great energy all night, and the offense was souped up wit...

  2. Lakers vs. Nuggets: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    If the Lakers have been the most underwhelming team relative to expectations so far this season, the Denver Nuggets may run a close second. After pushing L.A. to the limits in a tough, seven-game first round series during the 2012 playoffs, the ingre...

  3. Lakers vs. Mavericks: What to Watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

  8. 2011-2012 report card: Metta World Peace

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It was an interesting season for Metta World Peace. (Is there any other kind?) The campaign began with a visibly/admittedly overweight MWP tapped to pick up where his close friend Lamar Odom left off: The bench Kahuna. Having watched Metta spend two ...

  9. The Lords of Discipline

    Andy Kamenetzky

  11. The Bench, the Kobe-Sessions backcourt, defense: Lakers practice ...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Last season, even with eventual 6MOY Lamar Odom leading the way, the most reliable element offered by the Lakers' bench was unreliability. With LO in Dallas, the bench predictably floundered mos...

  13. Rapid Reaction: Grizzlies 102, Lakers 96

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Well, that wasn't fun on any level. Here are three takeaways from the loss. 1) From start to finish, the Lakers were off their collective game. Typically, a Sunday evening game begins at 6:30 pm PT, but the ESPN broadcast moved the time an hou...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It was a fairly mellow afternoon in El Segundo, the vibe notably casual after a whole bunch of hand-wringing over the Lakers' 0-2 start (which came on the heels of more hand-wringing over "pick your favorite issue since camp opened"). But after two s...
