Kobe Bryant Passes Michael Jordan For 3rd On NBA’s All-Time Scoring List

PAGES: 1 | 2 | 3 Well, Kobe Bryant finally passed Michael Jordan as the third all-time scoring leader in NBA history against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. What does it mean, exactly? For one, it means that Kobe has cemented his legacy as one of the greatest players to ever pick up a basketball, once again. Second, it means that Bryant's dedication to the game and relentless work ethic has allowed hi ...

Lakers Should Consider Bringing Jeremy Lin Off The Bench

Jeremy Lin has been inconsistent thus far this season. While he's averaging 11.8 points and 5.1 assists with an eFG% of 50.6 this season, he's averaged just 7.3 points and 4.3 assists on an eFG% of 25.0 in his last three games. He's certainly had some outstanding games, however, such as an 18 point, 11 assist outing against the Minnesota Timberwolves last Friday. Similarly, he had a solid 15 point, 10 assis ...

Kobe Bryant Having The Most Prolific 19th Season In NBA History

PAGES: 1 | 2 The Los Angeles Lakers are off to a horrid start this season. However, although Kobe Bryant hasn't quite been as efficient as he's been in the past, he's doing things in his 19th NBA season that simply haven't been done before. Few players have made it to 19 seasons in the NBA, and even fewer have displayed a level of play that Kobe Bryant has. Four players come to mind when you combine longevi ...

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 ...
