  1. 2011-12 Report Card: Pau Gasol

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Harry How/Getty Images If only the rest of Pau Gasol's 2011-12 season was this easy. It wasn't exactly the start to the 2011-12 season Pau Gasol had in mind. The ink hadn't yet dried on the new collective bargaining agreement between players and...

  2. 2011-12 Report Card: Ramon Sessions

    Brian Kamenetzky

  3. 2011-12 Report Card: Devin Ebanks

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Coaches frequently note the difficulty rotating three players through one position during a game. There just aren't enough minutes available. For the Lakers, who had Metta World Peace and Matt Barnes as the primary small forwards, it's particularly t...

  4. 2011-12 Report Card: Troy Murphy

    Brian Kamenetzky

  6. Jordan Hill on 710 ESPN

    Brian Kamenetzky

    This morning, I wrote about the performance of L.A.'s "wild cards" through the first four games of the postseason. The most consistent and impactful has been forward Jordan Hill, who has three 10-plus rebound games, and two double-doubles. Sunday,...

  7. The value of the "wild cards"

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Sitting at the podium an hour or so ahead of Game 1, Denver coach George Karl spoke about the serious star power at the top of the Lakers roster. You do your best, he said, but sometimes only so much can be done about Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Andr...

    Brian Kamenetzky

  10. 2010-11 Lakers report card: Kobe Bryant

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In the end, it really wasn't all that eventful. Kobe Bryant's 2010-11 season lacked many of the elements concerning some heading into last summer, on the heels of his most injury-riddled season in recent memory. Yeah, he missed only nine games -- ...

  11. 2010-11 Lakers report card: Andrew Bynum

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In a lot of ways, the 2010-11 season was a perfect encapsulation of Andrew Bynum's professional career. It was framed, as things always seem to be with him, by injury. Surgery on his right knee last summer eventually costing him the first 24 games...

  12. 2010-11 Lakers report card: Ron Artest

    Brian Kamenetzky

    On a personal level, the 2010-11 season was a great one for Ron Artest. Starting in the preseason, he made himself an unlikely but powerful advocate for mental health awareness, compiling a body of public good including the raffling of his championsh...

    Brian Kamenetzky

  14. 2010-11 Lakers report cards: Steve Blake and Shannon Brown

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The failings of the Lakers' bench (non-Lamar Odom portion) during the 2010-11 season were well documented, particularly when measured against the optimism surrounding the group heading into training camp. Like a lot of people, I figured the Lakers fi...
