Why Kobe Bryant Playing In 2016 Rio Olympics Would Be Perfect

Last year, when Tom Thibodeau offered Kobe Bryant a spot on the Men's 2016 USA Olympic Basketball Team, the Black Mamba declined. Last week, however, USA Basketball Executive Director Jerry Colangelo said Bryant still has a chance at making the team, despite not attending the team's mini-camp. Apparently Kobe and Colangelo actually discussed the possibility in June, and while no guarantees were made, Colang ...

Lakers’ Draft Pick And Salary Cap Changes Set Stage For Comeback

Let's rewind a few weeks to the night of the NBA Draft Lottery: Most Lakers fans were on pins and needles at the thought of the team losing its top-five pick, as there was a 17.2 percent chance that could happen.

When Tatu ...

Jordan Clarkson Gives Lakers And Fans Hope Going Forward

For years, Los Angeles Lakers fans have longed for the point guard of the future. They may have unsuspectingly gotten their wish in Jordan Clarkson. Magic Johnson is obviously the purple and gold standard when it comes to Lakers point guards, but the craving began after the departure of Nick Van Exel in 1998. Derek Fisher eventually became the starting point guard as the Lakers began winning championships a ...

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.

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 ...
