  1. Lakers trends: 10 games of "Yeah, but ..." and "Maybe, except ......

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The early stages of the NBA season are full of surprises and interesting numbers. Whatever happens now might be an indicator of what's coming, but it might not. Some early trends are more sustainable than others, and differentiating between the two b...

  2. 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...

  3. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 103, Kings 90

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Reviewing Sunday's 13-point win over Sacramento at Staples Center is tough on a couple of levels: 1. The Kings, particularly when short a suspended DeMarcus Cousins, aren't very good (preseason victories over the Lakers notwithstanding). The Laker...

  4. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 101, Warriors 77

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- Nothing about the rest of the day was normal or expected -- not unless you think firing the head coach ahead of the season's sixth game qualifies -- but Friday night the Los Angeles Lakers did something that had been very rare in this ...

  5. Lakers assistants left in awkward position

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- The word Bernie Bickerstaff used was "consented." Not exactly a verb of enthusiasm, but then again there was nothing to be enthusiastic about from his perspective when Mitch Kupchak asked him to coach Friday's game against Golden State...

    Mike Brown is out. What's next for the Lakers? Andy and I participated in a 5-on-5 roundtable discussion on the subject, along with TrueHoop's Henry Abbott, Darius Soriano of Forum Blue and Gold, and ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst. The five questio...

  7. Rapid Reaction: Lakers fire Mike Brown

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Vote of Confidence strikes again. About a day after Lakers executive vice president Jim Buss expressed support for head coach Mike Brown, the Lakers have fired him. Not going to lie -- I'm a little surprised the Lakers moved this fast, but ...

  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 ...

  9. Rapid Reaction: Jazz 96, Lakers 85

    Brian Kamenetzky

    A week or so ago I was asked on the radio to forecast the Lakers' first five games. I called two Lakers losses, and Wednesday's game at Utah was one. Salt Lake City is always a tough place to play, particularly when the Jazz have some talent, as they...

  10. Why the Princeton makes sense

    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...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    'Tis the season to get all votey, celebrating the democratic process in all its forms. Tonight's matchup between the Clippers and Lakers, about as highly anticipated as a first-week regular-season game can be, is no exception. All week long, ESPN Los...

  12. Rapid Reaction: Mavericks 99, Lakers 91

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In these lean economic times, anyone looking to earn a little extra pocket money might consider the selling of torches and pitchforks to Los Angeles Lakers fans. Following Tuesday's 99-91 loss at Staples Center to the Dallas Mavericks in th...

  13. Rapid Reaction: Preseason comes to close

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Technically speaking, training camp didn't end with Thursday's 94-82 loss to Sacramento -- the cherry on an 0-8 preseason run -- in San Diego. The Lakers still have a few days of (much-needed) practice ahead of them before kicking off the 2...

  14. Rapid Reaction: Clippers 97, Lakers 91

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- No Kobe Bryant, no Dwight Howard, no Chris Paul, Grant Hill, Lamar Odom, or Jamal Crawford. Fair to say much of the starch in Wednesday's preseason battle between the Clippers and Lakers was removed long before the tip. Still, as yo...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Aside from learning what Pau Gasol is currently reading (The Tao of Pooh), Tuesday was all about injuries for the Lakers. The news ran the gamut from excellent to worrisome. Unfortunately, the worrisome part happens to be abo...
