2012-13 NBA Division Preview: Pacific Division

It would be a shock to most basketball fans if the Los Angeles Lakers didn’t take home the Pacific Division crown this season. But just because there likely won’t be much intrigue outside of the Lakers and Clippers as far as actual standings are concerned, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of Pacific Division storylines to follow this season. Will the new-look Lakers, led by Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Pau ...

Mike Brown Looking To Crawl Out From Under Phil Jackson’s Shadow

Recently, former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson spoke with ESPNRadio in Chicago about the new-look Lakers building chemistry on the court this season. Here’s what Jackson had to say: “It’s finding a role that each player can move towards and be comfortable in,” Jackson said. “I think that’s how you want to feel.

Time Is Of The Essence For New-Look Lakers

With the Lakers set to begin training camp this week, it’s time to buckle-up and get ready for what promises to be an exciting, expectation-filled 2012-13 season. When a team adds the best center in the game and one of the best point guards in league history to a roster already boasting Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, lofty expectations are par for the course. The Lakers have recently been reported as being co-f ...

Taking A Look At The Lakers’ Backup Point Guard Options

For the first time since Hector was a pup (sorry, I couldn’t resist using a Chickism this close to the start of a new season), the Lakers won’t be worrying about production from the point guard position. That’s what signing Steve Nash will do. Even though Nash is much closer to the end of his career than the beginning, he is still one of the best point guards in the league. Last season in Phoenix, Nash was ...

Lakers All-Time First, Second, Third and Honorable Mention Teams

The other day on the Lakers Nation forums, there was a topic posted by one of our writers, Ramneet Singh, discussing the Lakers’ all-time starting five. After several comments discussing Ramneet’s selection, a commenter, known as EvenSteven, suggested the Lakers have had so many great players throughout the years, they deserve to have an all-time first, second and third team. A light bulb then went off in m ...

Ranking Each Month Of Lakers’ Schedule From Easiest To Most Difficult

With the Lakers set to begin training camp in less than a month, I thought it would be a good time to take an in-depth look at the team’s 2012-13 schedule and rank each month’s slate of games from easiest to most difficult. Each page will represent a different month (November-April) on the schedule and will include an analysis, game of the month, the number of home games versus road games, how many sets of ...

Shaquille O’Neal And The Art Of The Not-So-Happy Ending

The Los Angeles Lakers announced last week they will be honoring Shaquille O’Neal with a jersey retirement ceremony.  The ceremony will take place during halftime of the team’s April 2nd game against the Dallas Mavericks. In his eight seasons with the Lakers, Shaq led the team to three consecutive championships, was named to six All-NBA First Teams and was named league MVP in 2000. There’s no doubt Shaq des ...

Could Dwight Howard’s Absence Lead To A Less Than Perfect Pau Gasol?

Thanks to Dwight Howard missing the first part of the upcoming 2012-13 season with his surgically repaired back, Pau Gasol will begin the season as the starting center for the Los Angeles Lakers. Having played alongside the often injured Andrew Bynum the last five seasons, Pau is no stranger to sliding over from his power forward position and manning the middle. The last time Gasol was forced to play extend ...

Ranking Mitch Kupchak’s Player Transactions As Lakers General Manager

Since taking over for Jerry West as the Lakers' General Manager prior to the 2000-01 season, Mitch Kupchak has made some of the most memorable and successful transactions in team history. Kupchak first made his splash as the team’s G.M. by signing Karl Malone and Gary Payton in 2003, and he has recently formed a Big Four in Los Angeles, bringing Steve Nash and Dwight Howard to town to join forces with Kobe ...
