Nick Young’s Return Will Infuse Some Life Back Into These Lakers

PAGES: 1 | 2 As I took my seat at Staples Center right before tip-off against the Golden State Warriors, something was severely off. It was my first game in attendance of the 2014-2015 season, and things had changed drastically since the last game I attended -- which happened to be a game last season against the Warriors as well, albeit that game resulted in a win for the Lakers. There was no energy in the ...

From Garbage Man To Post Man, Jordan Hill Takes On A Bigger Role

It was almost a sure bet that Jordan Hill would be gone after last season. Although Hill played in 72 games last year, he started just 32 of them and was under-utilized in Mike D'Antoni's offense. Mike D'Antoni resigned, but the Lakers drafted forward Julius Randle with the seventh overall pick, which added to speculation that Hill was all but gone from Los Angeles. However, Mitch Kupchak decided to re-sign ...

Kobe Vs. Dwight: The True Franchise Star Vs. The Heir Non-Apparent

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 It's been over a year since the Dwightmare saga finally ended, as Dwight Howard opted to bolt from Los Angeles in favor of Houston. It's a grueling topic to bring back up for Lakers fans, but it was one of the few that Henry Abbott of ESPN The Magazine chose to rehash in his recent article, which claims Kobe Bryant is destroying the Lakers' franchise. Coincidentally (or maybe not), the Lake ...

Five Reasons 2014-15 Lakers Could Really Mesh Together

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 Coming into the 2014-2015 season, expectations are much different than in years past for the Los Angeles Lakers. There's not much chatter of championship hopes, and making the playoffs seems like the most reasonable aspiration for this Lakers team at this point in time. The Lakers were unable to lure a superstar to Los Angeles over the summer, and instead of spending big money o ...

Why Kobe Bryant Will Still Be The Best Shooting Guard In The League

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 The last time Kobe Bryant played a full (or relatively full) season, he completed one of his most impressive seasons. Where ESPN had ranked him number six coming into the season and number seven coming into the previous season, Kobe put on an absolute show and even ended up fifth in MVP voting for the 2012-2013 season. Obviously team performance is factored into that award and the Lakers ba ...

Lakers Need Nick Young To Have A Big 2014-15 Season

When Nick Young signed with the Los Angeles Lakers prior to last season, I had modest expectations. I expected him to be a streaky shooter, take some pressure off of Kobe Bryant, and be a solid sixth man. What actually transpired was far beyond that. Part of what happened was due to endless injuries for the Lakers, but nonetheless, Swaggy P emerged and became a star for the Lakers. Swaggy P was goofy off th ...

Lakers Should Consider Mark Madsen For Head Coaching Position

PAGES: 1 | 2 I'm going to get called all kinds of names for what I'm about to say -- crazy, stupid, maybe I'll even get cursed out -- but it wouldn't be the first time. After the Lakers missed out on Carmelo Anthony in free agency, it officially sent the team into semi-rebuilding mode. As in, the Lakers are mainly dishing out one-year deals and maintaining their financial flexibility for next year's off-sea ...

The 6-1 point guard from Little Rock, Arkansas had his share of big-time moments, adversities, and triumphs during his 18-year career with numerous teams, but he'll mainly be associated with and re ...

What To Take Away From The Donald Sterling Scandal

Obviously, the recording of Donald Sterling's conversation with his alleged girlfriend was horribly disturbing. (Here's the audio, if you haven't heard it yet.) Not only that his viewpoints reflected those of someone living in a different time, but the fact that this was an "educated" man who was in a position of power and great influence by being a lawyer, a real estate tycoon, and an NBA owner, made this ...

Where Kobe Bryant’s Legacy Stands And How His Return Will Affect It

It seems like so long ago, but Kobe Bryant completed one of his greatest individual NBA seasons just under a year ago after tearing his left Achilles tendon. He started off the season shooting lights out, altered his game to drop dimes more often than some of the league's best point guards, and finally pushed his body to the limits by playing nearly every second of every game down the stretch of a grueling ...
