  1. Why Mike D'Antoni was the right choice

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Give the Lakers credit. They never run out of ways to keep the world guessing. One day after giving Mike Brown a public vote of confidence, they send the guy packing. And then upon prepping everyone for the "Godfather Part III" installment of Phil Ja...

  2. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 99, Knicks 82

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Sweet Virginia, the Lakers are a .500 team again! After a week spent biting fingernails and ducking in fear of a falling sky, things seem to be stabilizing a bit. Obviously, there's still more work to do, but it's nice to see the team seemingly movin...

  4. Lakers vs. Knicks: What to watch with ESPN New York

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Can the Lakers, to use Kobe Bryant's typical parlance, "keep the train rolling?" Well, the New York Knicks have improved by leaps and bounds over last season, but they're also reeling at the moment. In the meantime, the Lakers have strung together a ...

  5. Week in preview: January 3-9

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The skeptic would dwell on how unpleasant the Lakers have become to watch. The optimist would note how things can only improve in a competitive setting, which makes four games over the next seven days an ideal opportunity. Game of the Week Sund...

  6. Phil Jackson's competitiveness and closing out on the road

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Tonight presents the Lakers a shot at punching their ticket to a third consecutive NBA Finals. Winning on the road is never an easy proposition, much less during the playoffs in a close-out scenario. Thankfully for Lakers fans, the purple and gold ar...

  7. Big shots and disrespect: Practice report and video

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As one would expect, El Segundo's man of the hour was Ron Artest, he of the offensive rebound and layup heard 'round the world. One hell of a redemptive effort for Ron-Ron, who'd put his team in a pickle-pickle with two horrible late-game shots withi...

  8. New PodKast: Game 4 recap, plus some practice quotes

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The wonderful thing about sports is the unpredictable nature. Unless you're talking WWE, crooked boxing (or according to the conspiracy nuts, the NBA), there's no script being followed. The games, as they say, can't be played on paper, and the chance...

  9. Five "non-zone" things to watch for in Game 4

    Andy Kamenetzky

    After the Suns finally got on the board last Monday, much of the chatter centered around the Lakers' poor reaction to Phoenix going zone. Without question, the Lakers' response to the defense left something to be desired. But as Fleetwood Mac famousl...

  10. The Internets done turned on Amare

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As we noted in Tuesday's postgame video, the defensive side of the ball was a brutally humiliating experience for Amare Stoudemire. I mean, wretched. Brian suggested Alvin Gentry be allowed to play seven guys at once, since Amare equaled -2 defenders...

  11. Lucky-Gate: Lakers practice report and video

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Heads up, Phil Jackson. You're not the only principal in this Western Conference finals willing to toss verbal shots across the bow. Before Phoenix's practice Tuesday, Amar'e Stoudemire was asked about Lamar Odom's monster effort in last night's 1...

  12. PodKast: Previewing Lakers vs. Suns with Kim Hughes

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The upside of landing a current NBA player or coach as a PodKast guest is their insight is as good as it gets. Even a former player or coach isn't in the loop quite like an active member of the NBA frat. However, there's a catch-22. These are also th...

  13. Lakers-Suns pollapalooza

    Andy Kamenetzky

    With last night's 111-96 beatdown of the Utah Jazz, the Lakers put to bed any concerns about extreme vulnerability created by a tough first round against Oklahoma City. A sweep will do that for a team's image. But if brooming an opponent reinforces a...

  14. Lakers 102, Suns 96: One Moment

    Andy Kamenetzky

    4:26 remaining in the third quarter. Pau Gasol blocks Steve Nash's three-point attempt in space, Derek Fisher gets the loose ball and the Lakers streak down the hardwood with numbers, primed to build on a 71-58 lead. One assumes, given how Phoenix...

  15. Phoenix 118, Lakers 103: Sloppy is as sloppy does

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Christian Petersen/Getty Images These are the sorts of high percentage looks from the opposition that can hurt a team. Ain't no real way to sugar coat things: The Lakers looked awful for the majority of this very one-sided defeat in the deser...
