Focus on Dwight Howard In Statement Game Against the Miami Heat

Things have been a bit brighter this week in Lakerland. After losing six straight games in what was arguably the toughest stretch in their schedule, the Lakers have won their past two games. While these wins against the Cleveland Cavaliers (Sunday) and the Milwaukee Bucks (Tuesday) should be considered "easy wins" for the Lakers, I think we all know by now that "easy wins" are deceiving this season. However ...

With Jordan Hill Out, Earl Clark Must Replace His Spark for the Lakers

While the eye of the storm is still centered around Lakerland, the fact of the matter is that the team must come together and fight against the storm. Additionally, they must fight with urgency as time for a push is now. Sunday's win against Cleveland provided a ton of positives. Yet, the margin of error remains almost nonexistent as the storm is trying to make its final hit to knockout the Lakers from any ...

Lakers vs. Spurs Pre-Game Report: Lakers Desperate For A Win

The Lakers continue to deal with the daunting task of being without the frontcourt while trying to dig their way out of a deep hole in the standings. On top of that, the Lakers are coming off another loss (their fourth in a row) to Houston last night, which saw heavy minutes from Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant and Metta World Peace. Despite coming out of the gate with energy and hustle yesterday, the Rockets kept ...

Inconsistent Team Defense Is the Lakers Number One Problem

We all knew that the return of Steve Nash would not fix every problem that the Lakers have been struggling with throughout this season. Of course the offense under the Mike D'Antoni system would run more naturally and things would get easier for everyone under the on-court direction of Nash, but that is solely in regards to the offense. As I pointed out in my last article, the offense was never the problem, ...

Major questions remain unanswered and are only getting more complex the deeper we go into the season. The team re ...

The Need for Jordan Hill to Have a Rotation Spot

Playing with a consistent level of energy has been a recurring theme in Lakerland for the past couple of seasons. While the majority of the NBA transitioned into a fast and athletic league, the Lakers continued to rely on half-court sets. The Lakers have been called old, slow and un-atheletic (Charles Barkley most recently), which has some truth to it. This offensive utilization of the transition game and f ...

Top 10 Los Angeles Lakers Moments From 2012

It has certainly been a roller coaster year for the Los Angeles Lakers. From dealing with a shortened schedule due to the 2011 lockout to getting ousted from the playoffs in the second round for the second straight year to having one of the best off-seasons in history to firing and hiring a new coach within the the first month of the season, the Lakers have reminded us of the fact that they hail from LA, wh ...
