    Andy Kamenetzky

    Apparently, there's a provision in the new collective bargaining agreement mandating the Lakers and Timberwolves play once a week in seasons taking place during a leap year. Thus, the third meeting since Feb. 29. But despite Minnesota standing pat at...

  2. The Forum: Are the Lakers in decline?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The direction of the Lakers is being questioned by everyone from fans to media to Kobe Bean Bryant himself. Whether because of the new CBA less friendly to high-spending franchises, Lamar Odom's abrupt trade or Jim Buss' increasing power, there's a n...

    Here are the talkies from Friday's players meeting at the Beverly Hilton. I'm going to post some additional thoughts later, but for the time being, here is a quick rundown. Washington Wizards big man JaVale McGee left the meeting early for unspeci...

  8. Numb to the lockout

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Monday's labor negotiations between the players and owners ran so deep into the New York night, they actually bled into my west coast evening as well. After much time spent waiting with one eye on Twitter updates and the other on the Cardinals-Brewer...

  9. Monday meeting between players and league canceled

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Considering Monday was also the deadline for a deal before the opening two weeks of the schedule are toast, this development ain't good news. ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard is reporting a sitdown was floated for Monday, but that idea went sou...

  10. Amnesty odds for the Lakers

    Andy Kamenetzky

    At some point, there will be basketball and a new CBA governing the game's economics. It's been widely speculated the new deal will include an "amnesty" clause, allowing each team to cut one undesirable contract. The player would still get his money,...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Not the news hoped for at the end of Tuesday's meetings in New York, but also not terribly shocking. Even those optimistic about a reasonably normal 2012 season figured the preseason would be toast. Certain things were simply destined to be sacrifice...

    It's the gabfest that keeps on giving! Talking points included the ramifications of Kobe Bryant playing in Italy during the lockout, players worthy of a trade involving Lamar Odom or Andrew Bynum, and which Laker would be cut if the new CBA includes ...

    Kobe Bryant turned 33 almost a week ago, but for a player of his magnitude, we'll extend the celebration. Heck True Hoop's Henry Abbott, he of the "King of the Kobe haters" reputation, to not only popped by, but sang The Mamba's praises. Amazing, hu...
