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 ...

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 ...

Lakers Nation Poem: A Very Lakers Christmas Wish

All I want for Christmas is for the Lakers to beat the Heat, So purple and gold can once again reign down Figueroa Street, Do it for Chick Hearn, do it for Kobe, or do it for Dr. Buss, Just bring that sense of urgency and make winning this game a must, Give me couple threes from Meeks, and a nice dunk by Swaggy P, But make sure to bring out some of that scrappy D, Pau Gasol doesn't need a triple-dip, but it ...

Nick Young: Possibly The League’s Sixth Man, But Currently The Lakers’ MVP

When Nick Young signed with the Lakers this past off-season, I had moderate expectations. I figured he would add some scoring, take pressure off of Kobe to create shots, and become a solid addition off the bench. He's certainly added all of that, but been so much more for the Lakers thus far -- exceeding my expectations, by far. I expected him to be streaky, but he's been nothing short of consistent -- poss ...

Lakers New Found Depth Breeds A New Team Identity

When Dwight Howard deciding to leave the Lakers for Houston, Plan B was in full effect and management executed their contingency plan. The Lakers amnestied Metta World Peace, acquired a few players who took less money to play for the purple and gold, and then picked up some more players prior to training camp who unexpectedly made the final roster and have even become major contributors thus far. Wesley Joh ...
