Magic Johnson, Losing, And A Fractured Lakers Organization

PAGES: 1 | 2 Being a hypocrite doesn’t make you wrong. It just makes you a hypocrite. With that in mind, I turn to recent comments from Magic Johnson during an event in New York. Magic is a figure synonymous with winning, but while entertaining this Steiner Sports audience, the Point God didn’t just make a statement wildly counter to his image. He likely committed blasphemy in the eyes of many Laker fans: " ...

If You’re A Lakers Fan And Want Them To Tank, Just Stop

Normally when I write an editorial here (such as this one on Wayne Ellington, or this one on Kobe's shooting), I look at a lot of statistics and that tends to be a big part of what I write about. This will not be one of those articles. This one's from the heart. As an extremely passionate Lakers fan, the comments from Magic Johnson bothered me on a number of levels. Magic is a Lakers legend, arguably the gr ...

PAGES: 1 | 2 Rajon Rondo and Kobe Bryant were spotted eating breakfast together in Boston and it almost broke Twitter. Reports of Kobe trying to recruit Rondo hit the airwaves, but both players shrugged it off.

PAGES: 1 | 2 Now that the 2014-15 NBA season is a quarter of the way through and the Los Angeles Lakers have stumbled through it at 5-15, head coach Byron Scott has made it clear that some changes will be made to the Lakers starting lineup.

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 ...
