  • An NBA season of highest highs for some, and lowest lows for others

    An NBA season of highest highs for some, and lowest lows for others
    Almost everyone gets to see the crazy step-back three-pointers and wild flip-ins that make Kevin Durant so great, his top plays consuming hours of air time on ESPN, TNT, NBA TV, etc. Considerably fewer have been privy to the madness that is Byron...

    Lakers paid $129.5 million in salary, luxury taxes for early exit
    The Lakers spent $99.9 million in salary this season for a roster that went 45-37. Additionally, the team will pay $29.6 million in luxury taxes -- a total of $129.5 million to get into the playoffs and suffer a first-round sweep by the San Antonio Spurs....
  • Of tweets, tanks, and tabloid fodder: the NBA midseason awards

    It's always more fun to be inclusive when it comes to NBA midseason awards. So for every Kevin Durant (our most valuable player), we like to mix in a Larry Sanders (most exasperating) or a Kendall Marshall (most unlikely rise to a starter). Here,...
  • Lakers in limbo while awaiting free agent Dwight Howard's decision

    Lakers in limbo while awaiting free agent Dwight Howard's decision
    A.C. Green left the Lakers for Phoenix exactly 20 years ago this summer, perhaps the only important player they ever lost to free agency. It so irritated Jerry Buss that he appealed to his players a few months later at training camp with an...

  • Heat the team to beat in NBA's Eastern Conference

    PLAYOFF-BOUND 1. Miami 2012-13 finish: 66-16. Coming: Michael Beasley, Greg Oden. Going: Mike Miller, Juwan Howard. The Heat propped up its three-peat hopes with two balky knees and a whiff of controversy. Oden has already encountered knee...
  • NBA rookie hazing appears to be on the way out

    Hazing in the NBA has always been about as sinister as a Dora the Explorer backpack, as menacing as a Hanson song. If it were a reality television show, it could air on Nick Jr. Cue the cute and cuddly Earl Clark dressed as a banana. Cut to Quincy...
  • Not many change-of-address cards after the trade deadline

    Not many change-of-address cards after the trade deadline
    It was the trade deadline that was nearly D.O.A. Besides the last-minute deal that sent Evan Turner from Philadelphia to Indiana, it was mostly a day of high-profile inactivity. There have been minute-long slug races that produced more movement. Pau...
  • Nash, World Peace, Meeks, Blake to miss Sunday's game for Lakers

    Nash, World Peace, Meeks, Blake to miss Sunday's game for Lakers
    The Lakers will be even more shorthanded for Sunday's playoff game against San Antonio than they have been, though that doesn't seem possible. Metta World Peace will miss Game 4 at Staples Center, along with Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jodie Meeks and Kobe...

    Earl Clark: 'I want to be a Laker' next season
    Earl Clark was in line for a substantial pay raise after breaking free of an otherwise mundane four-year career. Then came March and April. The Lakers forward lost his spot in the starting lineup when Pau Gasol returned from a foot injury; Clark...

    Time to look back on Lakers' season and ahead to the next
    Now that the season has ended for the Lakers, there's time to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future. Most of the material over the coming months here on the Lakers Now blog will focus on what the Lakers can do in preparation for next season....
