  1. How Steve Nash became a Laker

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The dust has settled, or is at least settling, on the shocker of a deal last week bringing Steve Nash to L.A. So how did it happen?'s Marc Stein breaks it down in a fantastically well-reported feature not only taking you inside Nash's tho...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    New Lakers point guard Steve Nash -- it's still very much fun to write that -- spoke at length with Max Kellerman and Mychal Thompson on 710 ESPN in Los Angeles this morning. They covered a lot of ground, including the process leading him to Los Ange...

    Brian Kamenetzky

  4. Lakers at Phoenix: What to watch with Valley of the Suns

    Brian Kamenetzky

    As was made abundantly clear Friday against the Rockets, the Lakers have pitched a tent in Strugglesville on the defensive side of the floor. Only twice in their last 11 games have they limited opponents to a points-per-possession figure lower than t...

  5. Lakers Late Night Replay vs. Phoenix

    Brian Kamenetzky

    That was ugly. After, things got a little uglier, perhaps, as Kobe Bryant made it clear to management he believes they either need to trade Pau Gasol or make it clear he's not going anywhere. This in between thing? Not working well. Just one of th...

  6. Lakers vs. Suns: What to watch with Valley of the Suns

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Kobe Bryant does not like the Suns. So strong is his distaste and so deep his competitive nature, it wouldn't surprise me to learn Bryant resents the sun itself. The actual, rises in the east, sets in the west sun, like some sort of hoops vampire. ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Lakers, rather quietly, have put together wins in seven of their last nine games, running their record to 7-4 following a 99-83 win over the Phoenix Suns Tuesday night at Staples. Among the highlights: Pau Gasol finished with 16 points and 12...

  8. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 99, Suns 83

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Don't look now, but the Lakers have quietly won seven of nine after starting the season 0-2, following a 16 point win over Phoenix Tuesday at Staples. There was much to like on a night where the Lakers had a few things stacked against them. Her...

  9. Lakers vs. Suns: What to watch with Valley of the Suns

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Steve Nash insists he's not asking for a trade now, and won't in the weeks ahead. As long as he's still in Phoenix, the Suns will at least bear some resemblance to those truly high-end teams of years past. Except any similarities aren't particular...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    As the NBA lockout moves toward December and the prospect of more canceled games, including the league's Christmas showcase, looms larger, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Baron Davis says he hasn't yet lost faith a resolution can be found.

  12. Lakers 139, Suns 137 (3 OT) - At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Did that just happen? In one of the more confounding games the Lakers have played in years -- all at once exhilarating and totally infuriating, at least from the perspective of Lakers fans and coaches -- L.A. kept its post-All-Star roll alive with...

  13. Lakers 99, Suns 95: At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Two in a row! Yes, that's a big deal these days. Solid work for the Lakers in the Valley of the Sun, as they continue trying to build a little momentum heading into the second half of the season. Plenty of work to be done, but as it was Tuesday ag...

  14. Suns 121, Lakers 116: At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The 2010-11 season now has a losing streak. Following Thursday's loss in Denver, the Lakers again went down Sunday night, this time to the Suns. To call this a statistically odd game would be a mild understatement. The Lakers shot nearly 50 percent, ...

  15. Lakers Week in Preview: Nov. 8-14

    Brian Kamenetzky

    After an uninspired effort Friday night against the Raptors, the Lakers responded with a much more juggernauty performance Sunday, wiping out the Blazers at Staples. Clearly the whole "fall back" thing didn't throw them off. (I, on the other hand, th...

  16. Lakers vs. Phoenix: What to watch

    Brian Kamenetzky

    To quote my mom, "Here's the thing:" Losing Amare Stoudemire hurts the Suns. A lot. Yes, his defense (as it were) never served to elevate the Suns, but overall, he's one of the best power forwards in the NBA. A team can't lose that type of talent wit...
