    Brian Kamenetzky

  2. Wednesday's game and the magnitude of Andrew Bynum

    Brian Kamenetzky

  3. Kobe Bryant to sit Wednesday in San Antonio

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Good. I wrote before Tuesday's game against New Orleans the Lakers Kobe Bryant ought to sit until the tenosynovitis (inflammation) in his left shin heals. Obviously not having Bryant in the lineup against a team as good as San Antonio does serious...

  4. Mike Brown, Gregg Popovich and managing minutes

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Phil Jackson used to reference Red Holzman all the time, and Mike Brown does the same with San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, whose staff he served on from 2000-2003 and who is clearly a major influence. Still, if there's one place Brown hasn't...

  7. "We've had a bad week." Monday practice report and video

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In my trade, we're taught to avoid yes/no questions, as well as "leading" inquiries, because both tend to limit the quality of an answer and the number of directions a questionee can go with his response. Best to leave people with as much room to roa...

  13. Week in Preview: Jan. 31-Feb. 6

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In a vacuum, the 33-15 record isn't all that worrisome. It gives the Lakers a winning percentage (.688) that nearly matches last season's mark (.695), and we know how that movie ended. Of course, the Lakers neither live nor play in a vacuum (fortu...

  14. Spurs 97, Lakers 82: At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky
