    Andy Kamenetzky

  4. Dwight and Shaq are not besties (and other practice notes)

    Andy Kamenetzky

  7. A purple-and-gold crossroads for Kobe and the Lakers?

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Even for fans harking back to the days of West, Baylor and Wilt, it's probably hard to think about the Lakers without Kobe Bryant. Next season will be his 17th with the franchise, the longest any player has donned a Lakers uniform. During this time, ...

  9. 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...

  13. Rescued from the chat archives: The lockout and legacies

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The added benefit of Wednesday's chat -- aside from it just being awesome -- was the reminder of a question I wanted to explore from a previous chat: Turner (Indiana): Who do you guys think the lockout for a full season effects more? LeBron's c...
