  1. Lakers at Clippers: What can we learn?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As a rule of thumb, preseason games aren't used to predict regular season and playoff success. A strong October forecasts little about April-June, just as a weak October doesn't mean a struggle awaits. (Except in the case of the Bobcats, whose curren...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 2011-2012 report card: Matt Barnes

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The more things change for Matt Barnes, the more they first get better, then turn unfortunately worse before reaching an endpoint that feels, for all intents and purposes, the same. Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via Getty Images Once again, inj...

  5. More for the Lakers' drawing board

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Because, you know, a 29-point drubbing by definition means you can never tweak too many things. Yesterday, Brian offered several areas in need of drastic improvement. I thought I'd add my two cents with four more suggestions. (Sadly, we likely still ...

  6. Lakers at Nuggets, Game 6: What to Watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    That the Lakers failed to close out Denver on Tuesday wasn't horrible in and of itself, but the reason for failure certainly was. It's one thing to get outplayed, especially by a quality team desperate to stay alive. Getting outworked, however, is an...

  7. Mike Brown discusses the Sessions-Blake backcourt, Ebanks and cho...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Throughout April and the playoffs, Mike Brown has periodically employed a backcourt of Ramon Sessions and Steve Blake, with the latter at the two and almost inevitably overwhelmed by his defensive assignment. The most recent example came in the first...

  8. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 104, Nuggets 100

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers remain undefeated in the Mike Brown postseason era, despite the Nuggets' pesky refusal to wave the white flag. The showing in Game 2 on Tuesday wasn't nearly as dominant as in Game 1, and I imagine Brown will point out more mistakes in Wed...

  9. The Lords of Discipline

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The three most common ways the word "discipline" is applied to the Lakers: 1) As a verb to convey punishment handed down by the league. The most recent examples include Metta World Peace's current seven-game suspension, or the four-game sentence s...

    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...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The big event at today's practice in El Segundo was obviously Metta World Peace addressing the media with his seven game suspension now official. For the most part, his comments were fairly uneventful. Apologies were offered again to the Thunder and ...

  12. The impact of Metta World Peace's seven-game suspension

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Newton's third law contends that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Using that principle as a guide, Metta World Peace met the side of James Harden's head on Sunday with a fairly vicious elbow, laying out the likely NBA Sixth ...

  14. 5 Questions about Kobe Bryant's return

    Andy Kamenetzky

    After seven games, a few surprisingly strong wins, and one semi-predictable shellacking, Kobe Bryant may finally be donning a Laker uni instead of one of those impeccably tailored, mega-expensive suits. On Friday, the Lakers will engage in a rubber m...

  15. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 99, Warriors 87

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Anti-climactic, as well as this should have been against a team missing nearly every player of notable talent. Tension can make for a fun basketball game, but against a bottom feeder, it's mostly frustrating. Thankfully, the Lakers just beat the snot...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Is the Momentum Train a'rollin? After this 103-97 win over the Nuggets, the third consecutive victory without Kobe Bryant and the second straight against a high-end opponent, optimism certainly doesn't feel out of order. Matt Barnes, Andrew Bynum, an...
