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 ...

Lakers Nation Conversation With Dwight Howard: Superman Revealed

Just as with the discussion with former Laker Josh Powell, we were fortunate to land an exclusive interview with Dwight Howard for this week's Triple Threat Podcast. My co-host (Jamieson Welsh), and guest-host (Jory Dreher) were each in agreement of the fact that our 40-plus minute discussion with Howard was the most candid, open, and honest conversation we've ever heard from a star of his nature. Just as h ...

Lakers Madness: Looking Back At Future Lakers In NCAA Tournament

In the spirit of the upcoming March Madness frenzy, I decided to take a look back at some of the all-time greatest NCAA Tournament players and performances from future (now former) Lakers. As one might expect from an organization with as rich a history as the Los Angeles Lakers, such a list could get extremely long. I decided to narrow it down to the seven future Lakers that not only had fantastic pre-NBA c ...

With Bryant Hobbled, Can Dwight Howard Be Superman?

Judging by the frenzied Twitter response to Wednesday night's disappointing 96-92 defeat by a short-handed Atlanta Hawks, I wasn't the only member of Lakers Nation concerned over the Lakers' playoff hopes when Kobe Bryant hit the floor. Without belaboring whether Hawks guard Dahntay Jones intended to injure Bryant or not, the replay footage brought upon an absolutely deafening silence (likely in all of our ...

Lakers Vs. Hawks Pre-Game Report: Lakers Look For Fifth Straight Win

Kobe Bryant asked Dwight Howard to return to Orlando, a place he called home (both personally and professionally) for eight years, and remind them of what they were now missing out on. I'd say responding to jeers, mean-spirited signs and shirts and an absurd amount of intentional fouls with a 39-point, 16 rebound, 3 block game did exactly that. Following the game, Howard told Laker sideline reporter Mike Tr ...
