  1. 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...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Lakers vs. Rockets: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    After a few weeks of middling and even disinterested looking performances, Wednesday's victory over the Clippers felt like just what the doctor ordered. The Lakers were dialed in for 48 minutes, often executed with precision, and seemed unwilling to ...

  4. Lakers at Rockets: What to watch with Red94

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With the Western Conference tighter than James Brown's rhythm section back in the day, every game counts for the Lakers. Which, by definition, made Sunday's debacle against a short-handed Jazz squad an opportunity gone irresponsibly wasted. And which...

  6. What Derek Fisher meant to the Lakers

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Glenn James/NBAE/Getty Images Fisher's time with the Lakers won't be easily forgotten. We always hear athletes, media and fans alike talk about how sports is a business. This summer, we witnessed a harsh reminder of this reality when the season was...

  7. Metta World Peace thinks he could have been Kobe's rival

    Andy Kamenetzky

    In November, I wrote about how Kobe Bryant's never had a true rival over the course of his career. I'm not talking "Magic-Bird 2.0," but rather a universally acknowledged rival of any kind. There's nobody linked to Kobe, whether through meaningful he...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    And with that, the Lakers are back above .500 again. Here are five takeaways from the win: 1) Kobe Bryant shot the ball a lot again, but with considerably improved selection Predictably, Kobe's 6-for-28 disaster in Denver generated the talk typ...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    "When a team trades u and it doesn't go down? Now what?" Lamar Odom didn't even require 140 characters to pose the $64,000 question. For those who felt it impossible to top the PR nightmare that was the NBA lockout, prepare to scoop your jaws o...

  11. Lakers vs. Houston: What to watch with Red94

    Andy Kamenetzky

    When this current five game home stand began, today's contest was pegged as the fourth easiest behind the cream puff Kings. A relative breather between Boston and San Antonio. Of course, that was before the Lakers actually lost to Sacto, much less Bo...

  13. Lakers vs. Houston: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    For the second time since Pau Gasol swapped places with Kwame Brown, the Lakers have dropped three consecutive games. It's hardly the sign of a falling sky. Frankly, most franchises would kill for these kind of "problems." But it's nonetheless indica...

  14. Week in preview: Nov. 29 -- Dec. 5

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Under most circumstances, I would peg a week against the Grizzlies, Rockets and Kings (a trio with 16 wins between them) as relatively easy. Then again, most circumstances don't typically feature the Lakers hitting the road on a two-game losing strea...

  15. Practice report and videos: Blake and bling

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Tuesday's 112-110 win over the Houston Rockets marked quite the purple and gold debut for Steve Blake. A pair of third quarter triples to help spark a rally. The game-winning three-pointer to ice a come-from-behind victory. An entire fourth quarter o...

  16. Lakers vs. Rockets: What to Watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Tom Petty noted back in '81 how the waiting is the hardest part. Nearly 30 years have passed, and science has yet to discover a cure for the anxiousness during the countdown to an epic event. Like, say, the quest for a third consecutive NBA title. Th...
