  1. Rapid Reaction: Jazz 117, Lakers 110

    Andy Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- On the plus side, the Los Angeles Lakers put the screws to the Utah Jazz down the stretch of the fourth quarter, transforming what appeared to be a deflating blowout home loss in the making into merely a deflating home loss. That's ...

  2. Practice report: Conditioning, learning the new system

    Andy Kamenetzky

    During a recent edition of The Forum, I singled out Darius Morris as the most pleasant surprise of the season for the Los Angeles Lakers. To me, Morris epitomizes an unseen turn of events, given his inexperience and how shaky the kid looked during pr...

  3. Lakers vs. Nets: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    A historical footnote is in the making, as tonight marks the first meeting between the Los Angeles Lakers and the newly face-lifted Brooklyn Nets. These ain't your daddy's Nets anymore, with the presence of Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov and r...

  4. PodKast: The Mikes, PJ and Bernie

    Andy Kamenetzky

    There are occasionally periods when the news cycle doesn't provide us much in the way of juicy topics for the podKast. Safe to say, this isn't one of those periods. Plenty to chop up, with Mike Brown out, Mike D'Antoni in, and Phil Jackson -- along w...

  5. Lakers vs. Kings: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With so much tension swirling around the Los Angeles Lakers since their poor start, it wasn't shocking to see a lot of energy channeled into a walloping Friday win over Golden State. This was a team clearly in need of a cathartic release, and Mike...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Practice report: Bodily updates, the second unit and DPOY claims

    Andy Kamenetzky

    In the eyes of many NBA pundits and fans, two factors are commonly cited as the biggest threats to the Los Angeles Lakers' championship quest: health and chemistry. Both elements have reared their ugly heads during a heretofore winless preseason, oft...

  8. Rapid Reaction: Kings 99, Lakers 92

    Andy Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- Yes, the Los Angeles Lakers remain 0-for-the preseason, but all defeats are not created equally. With Dwight Howard's long-awaited debut finally in the books, the vision of what this team may look like moving forward became more clear....

  9. Dwight and Shaq are not besties (and other practice notes)

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Not that friction between the two big men is a government secret, of course. Shaquille O'Neal was the first big man drafted No. 1 overall by the Orlando Magic and the first to adopt a Superman persona. He's also made perfectly clear the notion of a "...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water, along comes the shark fin and ominous music, packaged in the form of a rumor involving Dwight Howard. Here's a excerpt from the ESPN news link: "The Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76er...

  12. Ode to joy

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As far as livings go, "professional athlete" isn't the worst by which to make your money. For starters, said money is often ludicrously good for stars and even generous for those along the fringes. On top of that wealth, your world becomes an oyster ...

  13. Rapid Reaction, Game 4: Lakers 92, Nuggets 88

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It wasn't pretty, but the lack of style points will easily be forgotten in the Los Angeles Lakers' 92-88 victory over the Denver Nuggets in Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round series. Probably the time this piece has been read. Ain't nobod...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    A lot of factors can swing a playoff series. Individual and stylistic matchups. Home court advantage. Coaching. Unconsciously hot shooting. Injuries. Star power. And of course, experience. While oodles of "been there, done that" doesn't guarantee a...

  16. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 98, Spurs 84

    Andy Kamenetzky

    In my mind, this was the most significant win of the season for the Los Angeles Lakers. On the road ... against one of the hottest teams in the league ... no Kobe Bryant ... during a stretch when it has become very easy and justifiable to question th...
