  3. Pau Gasol still unsure of his future in Los Angeles

    Brian Kamenetzky

    It's been a couple months since the failed mega deal that would have sent Pau Gasol to Houston, bringing Chris Paul to L.A. (wearing purple and gold, specifically) in return. But just because David Stern put the kibosh on that deal doesn't mean the e...

  5. Lakers: The damage is done, all that's unknown is degree

    Brian Kamenetzky

  6. NBA kills deal for Chris Paul

    Brian Kamenetzky

  7. How the new CBA impacts the Lakers

    Brian Kamenetzky

  8. The NBPA raises the ante on the NBA: Thoughts from the room

    Brian Kamenetzky

    As far as CBA stakeouts go, my first was pretty short. Only about two-and-a-half hours in the dim, maroon-hued lobby of the Westin Times Square. That should have been my first sign Monday wasn't going to end well for NBA fans. Still, like many fol...

  9. Big Wednesday: A few CBA thoughts

    Brian Kamenetzky

    For a while, we've known under a new CBA some of the historical advantages enjoyed by the Lakers -- namely the ability to generate revenues and spend at very high levels -- would be mitigated. They'll be sharing more other franchises, and will find s...

  10. NBA cancels the first two weeks of the regular season

    Brian Kamenetzky

    One of Kobe Bryant's most admirable qualities is an insistence on suiting up whenever humanly possible, not simply because he's a ludicrously competitive guy but because, as Michael Jordan did before him, he knows there are fans in the stands specifi...

  11. So maybe Fish has time for that Impact League after all?

    Brian Kamenetzky

  12. Derek Fisher: Kobe Bryant looks good, far better than the CBA

    Brian Kamenetzky

    First things first: It was nice to see Lakers guard and NBPA president Derek Fisher in something other than a business suit, basically the guy's uniform since the Dallas Mavericks keelhauled the Lakers in May. Friday afternoon, clad in gym shorts and...

  13. Ron Artest and "Dancing with the Stars"?

    Brian Kamenetzky

    David Stern and Billy Hunter will once again hit the negotiating table next week, but fans are still looking for indications on how long this whole lockout thing might last. One sign of a potentially protracted labor battle would be Kobe Bryant actua...

  14. Lester, Goudelock show the real damage is behind the scenes

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The lockout will bring plenty of face time for David Stern, too much footage of Derek Fisher in a business suit, and periodic comment from the league's elite. But while they might be among the stars in the drama, those behind the scenes bear the brun...

  16. The Nightmare Scenario

    Brian Kamenetzky

    We all know the NBA is facing some serious labor strife after this season, and none of us know exactly what financial system under which the league will operate a few years from now, some surely more advantageous to the Lakers than others. But it's f...
