  1. Mike Brown confident a full training camp will pay dividends

    Andy Kamenetzky

    There's no question the circumstances Mike Brown encountered during his first season in L.A. weren't easy. No offseason communication with players. A shortened, chaotic training camp filled with drama surrounding Chris Paul, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom....

  2. 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 ...

  3. The Lakers, the NBA, and the bell that can't be unrung

    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...

  4. Gauging how the Lakers' offense might look under Mike Brown

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With the lockout now ended, we can actually examine questions beyond, "When will we see basketball again?" One topic, of course, is how the Lakers' offense will run under new coach Mike Brown. Since October 2005, we've seen this Lakers core run the t...

  5. Matt Barnes, Baron Davis and others on the lockout ending

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Matt Barnes was among several NBA athletes on hand Sunday at a L.A. charity basketball game organized by Baron Davis. Naturally, the postgame media sessions centered a lot on the presumably ended lockout and basketball happily back in business. Of co...

  6. The Forum: How are the Lakers hurt most by a canceled season?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The 2011-2012 season hasn't been canceled yet, but it's a fate unnervingly realistic at the moment. Were all the games axed, what's the biggest fallout for the Lakers? Along with Ramona Shelburne, we debate the question....

  7. Players to disband union, "nuclear winter" looms

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Good times in New York on Monday, as Derek Fisher took the stage among a sea of players (including Kobe Bryant) and announced the latest move. The newest proposal from the NBA has been rejected, and convinced the league isn't/hasn't ever been negotia...

  8. Players to mull over revised league offer

    Andy Kamenetzky

    And that's how the evening ended Thursday in New York. No deal in place, but Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter have something definitive to present to team reps on Monday or Tuesday. In theory, were the deal accepted on both sides -- Stern expressed conf...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Should the players just swallow their pride and make a deal? Should Lamar Odom start, come off the bench or get moved next season? Should Shannon Brown debate a career in the NFL? These and other questions were tackled in today's chat. Click he...

  11. The lockout just got real

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Up until now, the NBA lockout has largely existed as more of a conceptual bogeyman than a bully taking lunch money. The focus had always been looming deadlines. In July, when owners officially locked out players, the actual season was too far away to...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    A few days ago, I interviewed Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo as part of the "L.A. in my Game" series. (The discussion will be posted later this week.) While I had the Bruin standout on the phone, I asked for his take on recent comments from former NHL/D...

  13. Mike Brown has been ready to coach the Lakers since 2010

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Assuming there's ever a 2012 season for Mike Brown to make his debut, it will by definition be compressed. Everything from the games played to the time for getting everyone on the same page will be served by way of a bullet train. Factor in how Brown...

  14. The Forum: Will fans abandon a locked out NBA?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    After three days of marathon negotiations between players and owners, talks have broken off without any resolution. Needless to say, that ain't good. In the meantime, a recent poll showed that 42 percent of fans are so fed up by the lockou...

  16. Magic Provides a Reminder of LeBron's Immediate Future

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Should a television studio ever give Magic Johnson another shot at late night host (and if so, please call the show "The Magic Hour II: More Magic"), the Hall of Famer already has his jokes stockpiled. Exhibit A came during a speech last Saturday ...
