    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Lakers may be short on wins relative to expectations, but they've certainly not disappointed in the "things to talk about" category. This week has been no exception. Pau Gasol's future in Los Angeles is again being called into question, a future ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Everyone knows the Lakers are built to win a title now. Everyone also knows the season hasn't quite gone as scripted, with three different coaches, major injury issues, and 10 losses in 19 games. So how have early season struggles impacted the te...

  3. The Lakers bench shows signs of life

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Last week's road trip wasn't exactly a rousing success (a horrendous effort in Sacramento followed by a frustrating one in Memphis before Saturday's thumping of Dallas), but it provided the first glimpses of real hope for this season's bench crew. ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Said Mike D'Antoni after his first loss as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, Wednesday night in Sacramento: "I thought we were very lethargic. From the opening tap, the first half might have been the worst basketball I've seen in 10 years. We ...

  6. 5 questions facing the Lakers under Mike D'Antoni

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Nobody in the stands at Staples Center this weekend was chanting "We want Mike" -- and not just because doing so would potentially have sent mixed messages to management. No, the locals wanted Phil Jackson, and thought they were getting him. (In f...

  8. The dreaded vote of confidence for Mike Brown?

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Approach me on the street and accuse me of being an alcoholic, and I'll deny it. "Of course," you might say. "Denial is the first sign of being an alcoholic." True enough (according to the literature, at least), but it's also the first sign of ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Thursday afternoon in El Segundo, Mike Brown explained in clear terms why he believes the Princeton offense is a key to success for the Lakers this season: "We don't want to be so one-dimensional where when you play good teams, they say 'OK, Steve N...

  11. Lakers Predictions for 2012-13

    Brian Kamenetzky

    One major component of the sports media business is making predictions. To call it more an art than science is a major disservice to art. It's more about making the best possible educated guess before hoping enough time passes that nobody remembers w...

  12. Dwight Howard: Improving fundamentals improves his health

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Dwight Howard has yet to appear in a game for the Los Angeles Lakers, but he's hardly been sitting around. For most of training camp, he's operated -- poor choice of words, I know -- without restrictions during practice, and in those end-of-scrimm...

  13. The Lakers can sign Derek Fisher, they just shouldn't

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Mark Stein delivered the news Tuesday afternoon. The original assumption, that CBA rules prevented Derek Fisher's return to the Lakers until March 15, turns out not to be true. Because Fisher was bought out by the Houston Rockets following last ye...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Preseason games are rarely enticing, but they don't necessarily have to be this ugly. Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers, light on stars, were again waxed by the Utah Jazz, 114-80. Their preseason record stands now at 0-4 heading into Friday's gam...

  15. Kobe Bryant balances the scales

    Brian Kamenetzky

    It started with basic ballhandling drills, the kind you probably did at your summer basketball camp in middle school. Head up, hard dribbles in different rhythms. Then he moved just above the free throw line, and snapped the ball between his legs. On...
