  1. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 101, Bobcats 100

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- Mike D'Antoni alluded to it before the road trip, after the Lakers lost to Utah. At some point, the Los Angeles Lakers had to draw a line and take a stand. Clearly it didn't happen in Cleveland or New York. It may have,...

  2. Rapid Reaction: Knicks 116, Lakers 107

    Brian Kamenetzky

    That the Los Angeles Lakers are struggling isn't surprising. Everyone understood coming in they had a top-heavy roster built around stars, supplemented by the type of bench players who require talent around them to be effective. With Steve Nash and P...

  3. Rapid Reaction: Thunder 114, Lakers 108

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Los Angeles Lakers went into Friday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a 9-10 record, nearly a quarter of a season's worth of frustration and disappointment already banked, and little hope for quick improvement. They've defeated very f...

  4. PodKast: On Howard and Kobe's moment, Pau's future, and 30,000 po...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Lakers may be short on wins relative to expectations, but they've certainly not disappointed in the "things to talk about" category. This week has been no exception. Pau Gasol's future in Los Angeles is again being called into question, a future ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Everyone knows the Lakers are built to win a title now. Everyone also knows the season hasn't quite gone as scripted, with three different coaches, major injury issues, and 10 losses in 19 games. So how have early season struggles impacted the te...

  6. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 103, Hornets 87

    Brian Kamenetzky

    First things first: Here's the big historical takeaway from Wednesday's badly needed 103-87 win for the Los Angeles Lakers over the Pelicans (sorry, not yet) Hornets in New Orleans ... Kobe Bryant reached 30,000 points for his career. ...

  7. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 115, Dallas 89

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Referring to the 14th game of the season as a "must-win," even for a 6-7 team falling well short of massive expectations, is hyperbolic even by sports media standards. Still, after dropping the first two games of their three-game road set, the Lakers...

  8. Rapid Reaction: Kings 113, Lakers 97

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Said Mike D'Antoni after his first loss as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, Wednesday night in Sacramento: "I thought we were very lethargic. From the opening tap, the first half might have been the worst basketball I've seen in 10 years. We ...

  9. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 95, Nets 90

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Finally, the Los Angeles Lakers got rid of all this run-and-gun, Bernie Bickerstaff-shootout nonsense and got a coach who not only could get the win, but keep the opponent to fewer than 100 points so the Staples Center faithful could score some free ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The early stages of the NBA season are full of surprises and interesting numbers. Whatever happens now might be an indicator of what's coming, but it might not. Some early trends are more sustainable than others, and differentiating between the two b...

  11. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 114, Suns 102

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Lakers won Friday night at Staples Center easily enough that garbage-time minutes -- or at least a garbage-time minute -- were afforded to the likes of Earl Clark, Robert Sacre and Darius Johnson-Odom. Still, I suspect ...

  12. 5 questions facing the Lakers under Mike D'Antoni

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Nobody in the stands at Staples Center this weekend was chanting "We want Mike" -- and not just because doing so would potentially have sent mixed messages to management. No, the locals wanted Phil Jackson, and thought they were getting him. (In f...

  13. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 103, Kings 90

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Reviewing Sunday's 13-point win over Sacramento at Staples Center is tough on a couple of levels: 1. The Kings, particularly when short a suspended DeMarcus Cousins, aren't very good (preseason victories over the Lakers notwithstanding). The Laker...

  14. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 101, Warriors 77

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- Nothing about the rest of the day was normal or expected -- not unless you think firing the head coach ahead of the season's sixth game qualifies -- but Friday night the Los Angeles Lakers did something that had been very rare in this ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Mike Brown is out. What's next for the Lakers? Andy and I participated in a 5-on-5 roundtable discussion on the subject, along with TrueHoop's Henry Abbott, Darius Soriano of Forum Blue and Gold, and ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst. The five questio...

  16. The dreaded vote of confidence for Mike Brown?

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Approach me on the street and accuse me of being an alcoholic, and I'll deny it. "Of course," you might say. "Denial is the first sign of being an alcoholic." True enough (according to the literature, at least), but it's also the first sign of ...
