  2. 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 ...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It's not the craziest of talk to suggest the recent Finals between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City could be a preview of many championship matchups to come. Both teams are clearly the best in their divisions. Both feature a trio of stars in their pr...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    For any Lakers fan, any NBA finals without the purple and gold is by definition a disappointing series. The Lakers are a franchise that openly cries "championship or bust," and that standard has been enthusiastically adopted by the faithful. Thus, be...

  8. Rapid Reaction: Thunder 106, Lakers 90

    Andy Kamenetzky

    And the dream, she's now officially over. It was tight for a while, but then the fourth quarter floodgates opened early, and the Lakers were washed up in a flurry of OKC scoring. Too much Russell Westbrook. Too much Kevin Durant. Too much James Harde...

  10. 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 ...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Well, on the plus side, it's almost impossible for there to be any direction to go from here but up, right? And truth be told, a blowout result isn't altogether shocking. The Lakers just wrapped a grueling 7-game series allowing zero time for prep, w...

  12. Lakers at Thunder, Game 1: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With sincere respect to the Denver Nuggets, that it took the Lakers seven games to defeat them suggests how well the Lakers must play against Oklahoma City to have even a hope of advancing. Kevin Durant and the gang were the preseason favorites to co...

  13. Lakers vs. Thunder: What to watch with Daily Thunder

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Even before a tumultuous turn of recent events -- a lethargic home loss to Memphis, Mike Brown sitting Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum during key stretches of two contests -- this game would be huge. As I wrote Wednesday, it marks the first of five game...

    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-...

  16. Lakers at Thunder: What to watch with Daily Thunder

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It's the biggest game of the regular season for the Lakers to date, and by a long shot. Yes, they've gotten revenge twice in two tries against the Dallas Mavericks, which heals the wounds still being licked. But as far as measuring sticks go, the def...
