  2. Lakers at Rockets: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Under the best of circumstances, conventional wisdom dictated the Lakers would require some time to jell. With so many new faces (and at the time, a new offense, which eventually sparked the decision for a new coach), instant chemistry would be a tal...

  3. How the James Harden trade affects the Lakers

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Well, this was unexpected. Not because I thought moving James Harden would be unfathomable for the Oklahoma City Thunder. I actually expected OKC to explore trade options if contract extension terms weren't agreed upon come Oct. 31. I've heard ...

  4. How the new Lakers might have helped

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It's not the craziest of talk to suggest the recent Finals between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City could be a preview of many championship matchups to come. Both teams are clearly the best in their divisions. Both feature a trio of stars in their pr...

  7. A purple and gold guide to rooting in the Finals

    Andy Kamenetzky

    For any Lakers fan, any NBA finals without the purple and gold is by definition a disappointing series. The Lakers are a franchise that openly cries "championship or bust," and that standard has been enthusiastically adopted by the faithful. Thus, be...

  9. 2011-2012 report card: Metta World Peace

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It was an interesting season for Metta World Peace. (Is there any other kind?) The campaign began with a visibly/admittedly overweight MWP tapped to pick up where his close friend Lamar Odom left off: The bench Kahuna. Having watched Metta spend two ...

  10. Rapid Reaction: Thunder 106, Lakers 90

    Andy Kamenetzky

    And the dream, she's now officially over. It was tight for a while, but then the fourth quarter floodgates opened early, and the Lakers were washed up in a flurry of OKC scoring. Too much Russell Westbrook. Too much Kevin Durant. Too much James Harde...

  11. Lakers Late Night Replay: Game 3 vs. Oklahoma City

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Wow. Just... wow. There are losses. There are bad losses. And there are bad losses that carry the sting of 1,000 bees -- all born and raised in Oklahoma, naturally -- working in unison to attack as one. A primo chance to drastically alter the tone...

  12. More for the Lakers' drawing board

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Because, you know, a 29-point drubbing by definition means you can never tweak too many things. Yesterday, Brian offered several areas in need of drastic improvement. I thought I'd add my two cents with four more suggestions. (Sadly, we likely still ...

  13. Lakers Late Night replay: Lakers vs. Thunder, Game 1

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Well, on the plus side, it's almost impossible for there to be any direction to go from here but up, right? And truth be told, a blowout result isn't altogether shocking. The Lakers just wrapped a grueling 7-game series allowing zero time for prep, w...

  14. Lakers at Thunder, Game 1: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With sincere respect to the Denver Nuggets, that it took the Lakers seven games to defeat them suggests how well the Lakers must play against Oklahoma City to have even a hope of advancing. Kevin Durant and the gang were the preseason favorites to co...

  15. The impact of Metta World Peace's seven-game suspension

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Newton's third law contends that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Using that principle as a guide, Metta World Peace met the side of James Harden's head on Sunday with a fairly vicious elbow, laying out the likely NBA Sixth ...

  16. Lakers vs. Thunder: What to watch with Daily Thunder

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Even before a tumultuous turn of recent events -- a lethargic home loss to Memphis, Mike Brown sitting Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum during key stretches of two contests -- this game would be huge. As I wrote Wednesday, it marks the first of five game...
