    Andy Kamenetzky

  2. Lakers at Rockets: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

  3. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 119, Rockets 108

    Andy Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- Mike D'Antoni says he opted to delay his debut because of pain, fatigue and the adverse effects of medication. Personally, I think the guy's scared to follow in Bernie Bickerstaff's footsteps. And that fear ain't subsiding any time soo...

  4. How the James Harden trade affects the Lakers

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Well, this was unexpected. Not because I thought moving James Harden would be unfathomable for the Oklahoma City Thunder. I actually expected OKC to explore trade options if contract extension terms weren't agreed upon come Oct. 31. I've heard ...

  5. Lakers vs. Rockets: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

  6. Derek Fisher now officially a member of the Thunder

    Andy Kamenetzky

    From the moment the Lakers traded Derek Fisher to the Rockets, a buyout was heavily anticipated. The odds of Fisher remaining with an 8-ish seed for the remainder of a career in its severe twilight felt low. And even with Kyle Lowry sidelined, third-...

  7. Lakers at Rockets: What to watch with Red94

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With the Western Conference tighter than James Brown's rhythm section back in the day, every game counts for the Lakers. Which, by definition, made Sunday's debacle against a short-handed Jazz squad an opportunity gone irresponsibly wasted. And which...

  9. What Derek Fisher meant to the Lakers

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Glenn James/NBAE/Getty Images Fisher's time with the Lakers won't be easily forgotten. We always hear athletes, media and fans alike talk about how sports is a business. This summer, we witnessed a harsh reminder of this reality when the season was...

  10. Metta World Peace thinks he could have been Kobe's rival

    Andy Kamenetzky

    In November, I wrote about how Kobe Bryant's never had a true rival over the course of his career. I'm not talking "Magic-Bird 2.0," but rather a universally acknowledged rival of any kind. There's nobody linked to Kobe, whether through meaningful he...

  14. Lakers 114, Rockets 106: At the buzzer

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It wasn't pretty, but for the time being, style points are a minor consideration. Plus, as Pau Gasol noted, "ugly" and "valuable" aren't mutually exclusive. "I like these kind of wins better than if we would have won by 20 points," explained El Spani...

  15. Lakers vs. Houston: What to watch with Red94

    Andy Kamenetzky

    When this current five game home stand began, today's contest was pegged as the fourth easiest behind the cream puff Kings. A relative breather between Boston and San Antonio. Of course, that was before the Lakers actually lost to Sacto, much less Bo...
