He's often the forgotten one in the Lakers' mash-up of who's coming-who's going after this season.
It's easy to understand why Robert Sacre is overlooked even though he's one of only four Lakers under contract after June — three if you toss out...

Kobe Bryant was annoyed.
Really, really annoyed.
The Lakers traded Steve Blake before the February deadline, immediately sending a dissatisfied Bryant to Twitter.
He said he was "not cool" with the trade "AT ALL," hitting caps lock for effect and...

Point guards are the lifeblood of Coach Mike D'Antoni's system, the heads of the snake that drive and score or kick out to open shooters in a perfect basketball world (see: Steve Nash, 2005).
Too bad none of them can stay healthy on the Lakers.

How well will Phil Jackson do in New York? Quite well, I'm sure; after all, he has Jim Buss' cellphone number and a number of castoffs to send west.

The two towers approach delivered a single, familiar result.
Another Lakers loss.
Pau Gasol got his wish, the chance to play next to fellow 7-footer Chris Kaman, but nothing really changed Tuesday in a 124-112 victory by the Portland Trail Blazers...

Of all the indignities, this was the lowest of the low: Clippers 142, Lakers 94.
It wasn't only the Lakers' worst loss ever to the Clippers. It was their worst ever to anybody.
The Clippers appeared to play five-on-three that night, outscoring the...

Like a perfectly functioning carburetor on an engine that's otherwise shot, there is one part of the Lakers that continues to hum: their three-point shooting.
Kendall Marshall and Jordan Farmar both ranked among the top six in the NBA in three-point...

Nobody got hurt. The Lakers didn't lose by 50. There are only three games left.
These were reasons for the Lakers to celebrate a 112-95 loss Friday to Golden State at Staples Center.
The season that won't ever end is down to a handful of days. Nobody'...
