    Brian Kamenetzky

    Kobe Bryant's consecutive All-Star Game streak reached a record-tying 14 last week when the Western Conference starters were announced, but another Laker saw his streak end. Pau Gasol's more modest run of three straight mid-winter classics has com...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Through the first two quarters of Spain's 77-68 victory over Germany in Round 2 of the European championships Wednesday, observers of Pau Gasol (paugathologists) might have felt a little top-of-the-brow sweat forming. Gasol, who missed Spain's last g...

  4. Beating the Heat doesn't mean being the Heat

    Brian Kamenetzky

    From the moment the SuperTeam! formed last summer in Miami, the NBA locked into an arms race for the finite pool of elite-level talent. Old-fashioned, garden-variety, championship-caliber teams weren't enough anymore. Either a roster could be punctua...

  5. Lakers vs. Mavericks, Game 2 - What to watch

    Brian Kamenetzky

  10. Lakers 110, Mavs 82 -- At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Who knew Dallas would come to town, and a Lakers-Nuggets game would break out! I kid (sort of), but in what could very well be a preview of the Western Conference Semi-Finals, the Lakers sent a very, very strong message to the Mavericks, outscorin...
