Timing, Not Personnel or Agendas, To Blame For Dwight’s Departure

Regardless of how you feel in the aftermath of Dwight Howard deciding to leave the Lakers and sign with the Houston Rockets, it's important to note that there isn't a single individual to blame for the position the Lakers find themselves in today. This isn't David Stern's fault because he did the job he was supposed to do as "owner" of the New Orleans franchise and took the trade that would best increase th ...

Duncan, Spurs Title Won’t Pass Kobe, Lakers In Battle For This Era

There's been a lot of talk lately about who the best player of this current era was and much of that has to do with Tim Duncan and the Spurs being back in the NBA Finals for the first time since 2007. Some were genuine in their support for Duncan and others just seemed to be inflating his accomplishments and downplaying his shortcomings in what seemed like a blatant attempt to diminish Kobe Bryant's legacy ...

Dwight Howard, Golden State Rumors Shouldn’t Be Worried About

Another day, another team. Dwight Howard's list of possible destinations has reportedly expanded to include the Golden St. Warriors. While nothing in the NBA is impossible, the English language doesn't have a word for the closest something can be to being impossible without actually calling it impossible. Here are three big reasons why Dwight Howard won't be a member of the Golden State Warriors next season ...

10 Misconceptions Regarding Lakers, Free Agency, and Off-Season Plans

I can't get mad at the average fan for not knowing the finer points of the NBA's current collective bargaining agreement (CBA). It isn't the easiest thing to digest, and besides, who needs rules when it comes to fantasizing about ways in which the Lakers can get better, right? As soon as it seemed as if people finally got a grasp on the old CBA, the league's owners decided to lock the players out and many o ...

2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers Midseason Report Card

The 2012-13 Lakers are on pace to becoming the biggest disappointment in the history of professional sports. Never have expectations and results been further apart. In spite of their failures, it's still unfair to pain the entire team with the same brush. There have been some pleasant surprises mixed in with all the negativity. So it's only right that I judge each player on the roster individually. So witho ...

D’Antoni’s Silver Linings Playbook Is The Right Strategy For The Lakers

There's nothing we can do about it now. What's in the past, is in the past. The Lakers awful start to the 2012-13 season was nothing that anyone envisioned when the team acquired Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in the offseason. In addition to lofty expectations, the team has had to deal with injuries to four of their top-six players, including a season-ender to back-up center/power forward/spark plug Jordan H ...

What You Need To Know About Every Lakers Trade Rumor

December 15th, one of the key dates on the NBA calendar, has come and gone. The day is significant because it marks the first day players who signed contracts this past summer with new teams are eligible to be traded. In a league in which incoming and outgoing salaries involved in most trades need to be within reach of each other, the increase in the number of players who are now eligible can only help to f ...

Andrew Bynum Wrong About Kobe Despite Mamba’s Agreement

Before the Lakers played the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, ESPN Los Angeles' Dave McMenamin sat down with former center Andrew Bynum and asked him a few questions about the past, present, and future. During his time in Los Angeles I was a staunch supporter of Bynum's on various blogs. I defended both his abilities as well as quotes of his that I thought were misinterpreted. Perhaps his most famous quote was ...

It Feels Like We’ve Seen This Lakers Movie Before

Seems like it was years ago when Sports Illustrated's NBA Preview came out with Dwight Howard and Steve Nash on the cover and the headline, "Now This Is Going To Be Fun". Little did we know that they were referring to fans of the NBA's other 29 teams. Being a Lakers fan isn't easy these days and it doesn't seem to be getting easier. Who would have thought the Lakers would be 9-13 after 22 games, especially ...

Mike D’Antoni Is As Much About The Future As He Is About The Present

So it turns out Phil Jackson isn't coming back after all. Instead, the Lakers signed Mike D'Antoni's to be the 25th coach in franchise history. And while he isn't the guy who topped the wish list of most fans he's not a bad consolation prize either. That's because the move is just as important to the club's future as it is to the present. If the most important offseason issue facing this team will be whethe ...
