  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: 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...

  3. The Forum: How have early season struggles impacted long term goa...

    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...

  4. The Lakers bench shows signs of life

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Last week's road trip wasn't exactly a rousing success (a horrendous effort in Sacramento followed by a frustrating one in Memphis before Saturday's thumping of Dallas), but it provided the first glimpses of real hope for this season's bench crew. ...

  5. 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...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Lakers trends: 10 games of "Yeah, but ..." and "Maybe, except ......

    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...

  9. Saturday report: D'Antoni hopes to coach Sunday; DJO has hops

    Brian Kamenetzky

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The newsiest thing happening Saturday afternoon at Los Angeles Lakers practice: Mike D'Antoni confirmed he plans to coach Sunday night against the Houston Rockets, assuming his energy allows as he continues to get on his feet in...

  10. 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 ...

  11. Magic Johnson not on the (Jim) Buss

    Brian Kamenetzky

    You -- certainly including the chanting masses at Staples Center over the weekend -- wanted Phil. Magic Johnson did, too, judging by some water cooler worthy Tweets sent out Wednesday. Last night, Johnson explained his criticisms of Lakers managem...

  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. Lakers assistants left in awkward position

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- The word Bernie Bickerstaff used was "consented." Not exactly a verb of enthusiasm, but then again there was nothing to be enthusiastic about from his perspective when Mitch Kupchak asked him to coach Friday's game against Golden State...

  16. Rapid Reaction: Lakers fire Mike Brown

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Vote of Confidence strikes again. About a day after Lakers executive vice president Jim Buss expressed support for head coach Mike Brown, the Lakers have fired him. Not going to lie -- I'm a little surprised the Lakers moved this fast, but ...
