Lakers vs. Bobcats Game Preview: Lakers Look For First Win Since Kobe’s Return

The Charlotte Bobcats are a much improved team from a season ago, evidenced last night by losing a close game in Indiana against the Pacers, who sport the league's best record.  The Bobcats have been the epitome of a poor team the last two seasons, as they finished with a 21-61 record last year and then a mere 7 wins (7-59 record in the lockout shortened season) the previous season. However, under first-yea ...

Ramon Sessions: A Potential Game Changer for Lakers

After four games of observing the newly acquired point guard, we have a gauge of what Ramon Sessions can do for the Los Angeles Lakers, and what we can expect from him going forward. We can expect a quick guard who can create shots for himself, but can also drive into the lane and break down defenses en route to setting up his teammates. He showed flashes of this at the beginning of the fourth quarter durin ...

In Crunch Situations with Derek Fisher it’s Simply “This is What I Do”

Derek Fisher did it again. With the Lakers in need of some late game heroics, Fisher did not hesitate to provide his services. He gave the Lakers nine of his 13 points in the fourth quarter; the last three coming via a pass from Kobe Bryant to drain a 26-foot three pointer with 3.1 seconds left to lift the Los Angeles Lakers over the Dallas Mavericks, 73-70. At 37 years-old, Fisher is towards the end of his ...

How to Realistically Solve the Lakers’ Point Guard Issue

A ton of critics are speculating that the Lakers will need to acquire a younger, more athletic point guard via trade. Deron Williams is the big name that is being urged for general manager Mitch Kupchak and owner Jerry Buss to acquire. This would indeed be more than pleasing to Laker fans as Williams' star power and great abilities at the point guard position would not only solve the current position proble ...

Deep Three Fishin’: Lakers top Dallas on Fisher’s Three

Staples Center had a familiar aura Monday night. Tons of celebrities were present, Lamar Odom checked in off the bench to a standing ovation by the Lakers' sold out arena, and Derek Fisher hit yet another dagger three point shot to hoist the Los Angeles Lakers (10-5) over the defending champion Dallas Mavericks (8-6). The only differences were the absence of Phil Jackson sitting on his throne, a fluid offen ...

Matt Barnes’ Performance is a Key for the Lakers

When Matt Barnes was signed by the Los Angeles Lakers prior to the 2010-11 season, it was seen as a smart move by the organization. Barnes would bring his defensive mentality and hustle to the bench and would act as a sufficient reliever for Metta World Peace. However, injuries would sideline this potential in 2011, leaving fans and Barnes himself with disappointment. During this past off-season and the ext ...

NBA Power Rankings: Heat, Bulls and Thunder off to Fast Starts

30. Washington Wizards: Washington is the only winless team the league. On a brighter note they do host the Timberwolves and Raptors coming up at home. 29. New Jersey: Deron Williams is shooting less than 40 percent from the field and is very high in turnovers while low in assists. Without Brook Lopez in the lineup it does not look good for the Nets. Maybe Deron wishes he was still hooping in Turkey? 28. Ne ...
