  1. Lakers make significant changes to Mike Brown's staff

    Brian Kamenetzky

  2. One more reason to like Steve Nash: He's Batman

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Well, not literally, but Steve Nash loves to make movies. Film parodies, specifically. Like this one, and this one. His newest? A "Dark Knight Rises" spoof also lampooning the ubiquitous EXTREME! home workout videos you'll see on late night televi...

  3. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 73, Mavericks 70

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Another night when the NBA might have to resconsider the whole "I love this game!" theme it has run with over the years, but once again on their home floor, the Los Angeles Lakers managed to win. L.A. runs its record to 10-5, with tough games at M...

  4. PodKast: Jackie MacMullan on Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant, Phil ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Love him or hate him, few athletes have loomed larger on the L.A. sports scene than Shaquille O'Neal. (See what I did there?) He was a centerpiece (again!) of the Threepeat Lakers, but with success came plenty of drama, most notably thanks to a partn...

  5. Of course Kobe Bryant is arrogant

    Brian Kamenetzky

    There has been some degree of consternation surrounding comments from seldom used Dallas big man Ian Mahinmi to French NBA website BasketUSA regarding Kobe Bryant: "Kobe is super arrogant but everybody loves him," Mahinmi said. "To me, Kobe is more ...

  6. Are Lakers fans done with Pau Gasol?

    Brian Kamenetzky

    For the record, I don't believe a deal sending Pau Gasol to Minnesota, whether for Kevin Love and the No. 2 pick in Thursday's draft; the pick and whatever flotsam, jetsam and magic beans with which the Wolves would try to entice L.A.; or any combina...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Because it's apparently never too early to consider a target for your hard earned gambling dollars, the fine folks at Bodog have issued their early odds for next season's NBA title. Here's how it breaks down: Miami- 5/2 Lakers- 11/2 Chicago- ...

  9. Lakers 90, Timberwolves 79 - At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    It will not go down in the time capsule, but it will go into the win column. The Lakers knock off Minnesota Tuesday night in an aesthetically unpleasing, muddy game. But it was enough to do the trick, and continued the team's strong upward trend o...

  10. Lakers vs. Minnesota -- What to watch with A Wolf Among Wolves

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Whenever the Lakers face vastly inferior competition, the game is always much more about what they do as a group than individual matchups within the game or strategies the opposition might throw at them. Certainly it's the case tonight in Minnesota, ...

  11. Lakers Week in Preview: Feb. 28-March 6

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Only fans with expectations on the unreasonable end of things could complain about L.A.'s first week coming out of the break. Four wins, including three over playoff-caliber teams, capped by Sunday's win against the Thunder at Ford Center. Andre...

  12. It's official: No Love for L.O.

    Brian Kamenetzky

    It's official: Lamar Odom will not be a part of this year's All-Star Game. The NBA announced today Commissioner David Stern's choice to replace Yao Ming on the Western Conference squad, and it's Kevin Love. No real surprise, but still a little dis...

  13. Does Pau Gasol still belong on the All-Star team?

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The newest round of returns in (still semi-) early voting for February's All-Star Game at Staples show Kobe Bryant leading the way with over 1.4 million votes, about 200K ahead of Orlando's Dwight Howard for the overall top spot in what is, quite lit...

  14. Lakers at Minnesota: What to watch

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Lakers have 10 wins. By far the least satisfying was their 99-94 victory over Minnesota at Staples Center almost 10 days ago. The Lakers came in undefeated, tossing opponents aside like orcas do penguins. The Wolves, meanwhile, had spent most of ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    I love it when a pun comes together. Is it a good pun? Maybe not. Actually, I'm not actually sure it makes sense. Read on and let me know. I digress..., as part of its preseason predictions spread, put together a panel of 25 hoops writers...

    It's time again to empty out the Land O'Lakers mailbag. Just because we're in the dry, forbidding summer months doesn't mean there are no issues to kick around. After all, training camp is just around the corner. So without further ado, let's get ...
