2015-16 NBA Rookie Survey: D’Angelo Russell Voted Best Playmaker

Beyond the annual all-access NBA rookie photo shoot, NBA.com also conducted its seventh rookie survey where incoming players are polled about a series of NBA-related topics which ranged from predicting the 2015-16 Rookie of the Year to guessing which rookie might ultimately have the best NBA career to which current players remain the most popular amongst the incoming class. -- What will D'Angelo Russell mak ...

Jamaal Wilkes: Lakers Have ‘Very Real’ Chance To Make NBA Playoffs

Los Angeles Lakers Hall of Famer Jamaal Wilkes expressed confidence not only in the current direction of the front office, but in this team's chances to at least compete for a playoff spot in a tough Western Conference during this recent video provided courtesy of Time Warner Cable Sportsnet: I know last year [21-61 W/L] was hard, hard...you know, we're not used to that in 'Laker Land," former Los Angeles L ...

Metta World Peace Shines Light On Mental Health In Sports

Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace may be best known for his tenacious defense, past antics or perhaps even that 'dagger' three pointer down the stretch of Game 7 back in 2010, but his honesty about mental health and what he's endured throughout life could actually make his greatest impact upon society. World Peace’s style of appearing to generally wear his heart on his sleeve in life (and ...

D-Fenders News: Casey Owens Named New L.A. Head Coach

After a disappointing 17-33 tenure that resulted in not even qualifying for postseason play following the 2014-15 Developmental League regular season, the Los Angeles D-Fenders decided to go in a different direction from veteran coach Phil Hubbard. -- What will Kobe Bryant make this season? Find out here! --- Team President/CEO Joey Buss and General Manager Nick Mazzella announced the decision to hire Casey ...

Lakers Game Preview: Lakers Must Maintain Momentum Versus Rockets

With the initial disappointment of the loss of Kobe Bryant behind them, the Lakers must continue their winning ways in tonight's season finale versus the Houston Rockets. It may seem crazy to see the phrase "winning ways" in the same sentence as this year's team, but I remind you of the fact that these Lakers have gone 27-12 since that late-January road loss at Memphis. The progress has been difficult to re ...

Lakers Game Preview: Zero Margin For Error Against the Hornets

The Los Angeles Lakers realize the task that is before them. While some people think the team's solemn responses to post-game questions (following the loss to the Clippers) were a sign of being deflated or lacking heart, I would actually chalk that up to resolution and understanding of the circumstances. Five games remaining, tied in the loss column with the Jazz (41-37), and without the benefit of the head ...

In House That He Helped Build, Shaq’s No. 34 Will Hang In Rafters

Earlier this season, I wrote what some would consider to be a 'scathing' article about Shaquille O'Neal's seemingly personal issues with newly-acquired superstar big man, Dwight Howard. As I stated in the previous article, honest assessments and criticisms are entirely fair and precisely what we tune in to TNT's Inside The NBA for. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to be what was taking place at the time, and I ...

Lakers Vs. Kings Pre-Game Report: Lakers End Road Trip in Sacramento

Put simply, you cannot continue losing games to teams below the .500 mark. Following an encouraging stretch of games where they actually played some semblance of the type of entertaining basketball many of us expected, the Los Angeles Lakers are in the midst of another difficult patch at a time when they can least afford it. While it is certainly fair to acknowledge the fact that this team has been decimate ...

Kobe Bryant Just 35 Points From Surpassing Wilt Chamberlain

It's almost fitting that, at 34-years-old, Kobe Bryant sits just 34 points beneath a fellow scoring 'giant'. Whether it takes place on the second night of a back-t0-back vs. the Milwaukee Bucks or Saturday night vs. the Kings (in Sacramento), Bryant is set to overtake Wilt Chamberlain's 31,419 point total for fourth on the All-Time NBA scoring list. ---- Test your black mamba knowledge by taking this Kobe B ...

Lakers Vs. Wizards Pre-Game Report: Lakers Look To Bounce Back

After 'hitting a wall' on Monday in Phoenix, the Los Angeles Lakers are looking to not only return to their (recent) winning ways, but also look forward to the reported returns of both Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant. Given the difficulties this team has endured, the phrase "winning ways" may sound somewhat humorous at first glance, but I want to remind all of Lakers Nation of the fact that this team still has ye ...
