  • He's just the man to lead the Lakers: Phil for president

    On farewell day, they waved until their hands hurt. Kobe Bryant pleaded for Lakers management to pay millions to Dwight Howard, millions to Pau Gasol, millions for the luxury tax, anything to keep the Lakers together for the final year of his contract....
  • Bill Walton never takes a timeout from talking

    In a week when you thought you might have heard it all, I present to you Bill Walton speaking to USC students and bashing UCLA basketball. "I never knew they had pretty girls here at USC," began Walton, one of UCLA's all-time greats, after being...

     Clippers at a crossroads with Doc Rivers decision
    It was the summer when a good NBA team was bold enough to become a great one. It was 1999, and the team was led by two stars who had carried it to three consecutive playoff appearances. But each time it had fallen short of the NBA Finals and been swept...

    Think the Lakers should let Dwight Howard go? Think again

  • Mike D'Antoni takes chants, still hopes to turn them to cheers

    Mike D'Antoni takes chants, still hopes to turn them to cheers
    It is the chant that has defined the season, yet somehow has not defined the man. The most amazing thing about the derisive jeer that has rained upon Mike D'Antoni's slumped shoulders for the last six months is that not once has he jeered back. "We want...
  • In the list of great Lakers accomplishments, this isn't one of them

    In the list of great Lakers accomplishments, this isn't one of them
    Yay? One of the most hyped teams in NBA history fell exhaustedly into the playoffs Wednesday. Appropriately, it happened with only three hours left in the season. Fittingly, it was clinched when they were just standing around. Ten minutes before the...
  • It's high time to present our NBA awards

    And we thought a thorny issue for the NBA was tanking. Turns out, it's toking. "…I believe in marijuana," said Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders, "and the medical side of it." Sanders believes in weed's medicinal powers so strongly that he...
  • Jeanie Buss talks about all things Lakers

     Jeanie Buss talks about all things Lakers
    "Born to the purple" means someone who comes into the world privileged and royal. That doesn't exactly describe Jeanie Buss. She was teenager when her father, Jerry Buss, bought the Los Angeles Lakers. After he died, Jeanie stepped into the job of...
  • Why Lakers' hiring of Mike D'Antoni is bad, in 7 seconds or less

    The new Lakers coach famously wants his players to shoot in seven seconds or less. I’m not going to require that long to list the reasons that hiring Mike D'Antoni was yet another Buss blunder. He's never taken a team to an NBA Finals. He has a...
