    Brian Kamenetzky

    The question of how Kobe Bryant will adjust to playing with the new, elite talent around him has led a healthy percentage of Lakers-related conversations since the team traded first for Steve Nash, then Dwight Howard. Bryant is, to say the least, a d...

  4. Kobe Bryant, historical rankings, and incredible success in L.A.

    Brian Kamenetzky

    When Kobe Bryant passed Shaquille O'Neal to become the NBA's fifth all-time leading scorer, it prompted a flurry of debates about his place in basketball history, but also his ranking among great Lakers, as in this video with ESPN's Tim Legler. I ...

  5. Kobe Bryant ties NBA record with 14th consecutive All-Star bid

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Watching Kobe Bryant on a day in, day out basis, it's easy to become desensitized to how good he is, because he's been doing it so well for so long. Kobe drops 34? Been there, done that. Days like today, though, tend to drive both points home. ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Love him or hate him, few athletes have loomed larger on the L.A. sports scene than Shaquille O'Neal. (See what I did there?) He was a centerpiece (again!) of the Threepeat Lakers, but with success came plenty of drama, most notably thanks to a partn...

  10. Shaq in the rafters: Who says no?

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The debate, to me, is cut and dried: Of course Shaq gets his number retired by the Lakers. To the point it's not actually a discussion. (Or, as ESPNLA's Ramona Shelburne writes in this debate, "Duh.") Three titles, three Finals MVP's, a garden variet...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    With a driving layup at the 6:43 mark of the third quarter in what became a complete blowout of the Detroit Pistons as Staples, Kobe Bryant passed Dominique Wilkins- a player who once graced my wall in poster form- for 10th place on the NBA's all-tim...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Comparisons between the two are ubiquitous to the point I'm always hesitant to put Kobe Bryant and LeBron James together in any discussion. Beyond the overkill, in sports, like politics, people tend to react viscerally rather than thoughtfully to any...
