If Shannon Brown Departs, Who Can the Lakers Replace Him With?

The Lakers acquired Shannon Brown in February 2009 in a trade that sent F Vladimir Radmonivic to Charlotte for Brown and Adam Morrison. The Lakers didn't expect to get too much out of this trade, other than to bolster up the depth of their bench, and to get rid of a player who Phil Jackson often referred to as a "space cadet". In his two and a half years as a Laker, Brown has proved to be much more than jus ...

Remember Me? Looking Back at Lakers Letting Go

We’ve all heard the saying, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. After winning the 16th championship in franchise history last June, Mitch Kupchak, general manager of the Lakers, added five new faces to the Lakers bench.

Game Recap: Lakers vs. Kings Vegas Style

Tonight's game vs. the Kings was filled with lots of ups and downs, just like the city of Las Vegas itself. Pulling away to a 22 point lead was just like that hot streak of black jack, followed by putting it all on black...and then all of a sudden your only up $3, or 3 points in this case. Regardless, if you are smart enough to stick to your guns and walk away while you are ahead, you come out a winner even ...

Road to the Repeat: First Stop – Anaheim

Tonight, in Anaheim, it all begins again.  The Lakers kick off the 2009-2010 campaign with the first of eight pre-season games tonight at the Honda Center versus the Golden State Warriors.  While I tend not to sink much importance into the pre-season match ups (after all they don't count), there is something more exciting about this seasons first game/practice.  Very likely, the excitement stems from the ch ...
