  1. 2011-2012 report card: Josh McRoberts

    Andy Kamenetzky

    If you're a reserve looking to become a fan favorite, a recent blueprint has been firmly established. You can be a relentless hustler who pursues every loose ball and relishes the dirty work, ala Ronny Turiaf and Josh Powell. You can be a highlight d...

  2. The Bench, the Kobe-Sessions backcourt, defense: Lakers practice ...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Last season, even with eventual 6MOY Lamar Odom leading the way, the most reliable element offered by the Lakers' bench was unreliability. With LO in Dallas, the bench predictably floundered mos...

  3. Lakers at Suns: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    A full 48 hours won't have passed since these teams battled in L.A., which means by definition very little has changed. In theory, the Lakers remain the superior team, even on the road that's doubled as a purple-and-gold Achilles' heel. However, fami...

  4. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 106, Bobcats 73

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Man alive, the Bobcats are bad. I mean, really bad. If there is a prime takeaway from this evening, it's that Michael Jordan's new team is eons away from becoming Michael Jordan's old team ... the Wizards. Here are four more takeaways. 1. Kobe Br...

  5. Rapid Reaction: Bucks 100, Lakers 89

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers entered this contest with a 1-6 road record, but I was willing to cut them some degree of slack. Yes, championship-caliber teams can win on the road, but at the same time, the majority of their losses have come against quality teams. Portl...

  6. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 90, Grizzlies 82

    Andy Kamenetzky

    They say you don't get style points for a pretty win, which, by extension, means you don't lose points for an ugly win. And that's fortunate, because the Lakers otherwise might have ended the night with -2 on the scoreboard. The W was secured, but th...

  7. Lakers at Nuggets: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers ended 2011 on a winning note. The chance to kick off 2012 in that same positive fashion (against the same team, no, less) is immediately staring them in the face. On Saturday afternoon, the Lakers played host to the Nuggets. Tonight, Denve...

  8. Andrew Bynum's return approaches: Practice report, videos

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It was a fairly mellow afternoon in El Segundo, the vibe notably casual after a whole bunch of hand-wringing over the Lakers' 0-2 start (which came on the heels of more hand-wringing over "pick your favorite issue since camp opened"). But after two s...

  9. Chat transcript

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Twas a lively conversation, as one would expect after the purple and gold finally enter the win column. The Laker Nation is breathing easier, but hardly easy, and questions still remain. Among the talking points were the roles of Josh McRoberts an...

  10. Lakers Late Night: Lakers-Bulls

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Today's show, which picks up after the camera accidentally fell off a stand, and before that a weird stretch where people could hear me, but not see me. But that back story aside, it theoretically provides some decent information. Plus, me in a suit,...

  11. Andrew Bynum's suspension reduced to four games

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Christmas comes early for the Lakers, who've been due to catch a break of any kind. The league has decided to reduce Andrew Bynum's five game suspension by one for his playoff elbow to J.J. Barea. With the seasoned shortened to 66 games, the punishme...

  12. Lakers Late Night replay, plus Lakers-Clippers postgame videos

    Andy Kamenetzky's Arash Markazi joins the fun, and while the Lakers did lose again to their Staples Center roommates, there were certainly positives to take away. Among the talking points were Kobe Bryant's wrist injury, the battle between Devin Ebanks an...

    Two days later, they meet again. As we continue to gauge the readiness of the Lakers and Clippers as Christmas looms, here are five items to watch for in their final preseason action. 1) How much progress is evident for the Lakers in Game 2? As ...

  14. Countdown to Christmas: Forward(s) March!

    Andy Kamenetzky

    There is no way of discussing the Lakers' forwards without discussing Lamar Odom. His abrupt trade to Dallas would be the elephant in the room, except that would require everyone to stop talking about it. It's no exaggeration to say the potential eff...

  15. Lakers beat Pacers: The Reactions

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Before last night's 118-96 win over the Indiana Pacers, I appeared on the 710 ESPN's Kia Motors Lakers Shootaround Show with Steve Mason. One of our guests was Dan Dakich, who covers the Pacers for 1070 The Fan. Dakich wasn't sure if Coach Jim O'Brie...
