Lakers a steaming pool of nepotism and nincompoops

Lakers a steaming pool of nepotism and nincompoops

CBS Sports Ken Berger with some harsh words for Lakers ownership: The Lakers' front office is an uncommunicative, rudderless fiasco, and the unrest and paranoia that have been festering for years threaten to derail the team's plans to ride Bryant to his sixth NBA title while they still can. And much of it can be [...]

Is Pau Gasol having an emotional breakdown?

Via the LA Times: In a game that featured plenty of Kobe Bryant (36 points), plenty of Andrew Bynum (17 points and 14 rebounds) and an improving bench (34 points), Pau Gasol scored 10 points on four-of-13 shooting. Though it appears pointing out a descrepancy involves splitting hairs, Bryant believes reports linking Gasol in a [...]

Enemy Chatter: KG was repeatedly allowed to miss shots

Enemy Chatter: KG was repeatedly allowed to miss shots

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here’s a dose of ‘enemy chatter’ from Los Angeles. The Lakers survived because the Celtics couldn’t take advantage of another weak offensive output. Ray Allen hit some shots early, and one big three late, but [...]

Recap: Celts loss the cherry on a crap sundae of a game

Recap: Celts loss the cherry on a crap sundae of a game

The quality of basketball wasn't quite at the level of 2008 or 2010 (or my kids youth league), but the drama was vintage Celtics vs Lakers. In the end, the Lakers were a smidge less awful than the Celtics. The result – an 88-87 LA victory in overtime. In a game officiated to their benefit [...]

Rumor: Celtics interested in Rondo for Gasol swap

Rumor: Celtics interested in Rondo for Gasol swap

Hoopsworld has this absolutely stunning trade rumor: Additionally, sources have told HOOSPWORLD that the Boston Celtics do have interest in (Pau) Gasol for their All-Star point guard.

Lakers interested in Paul Pierce?

Lakers interested in Paul Pierce?

Sam Amico covers the Cleveland Cavaliers and NBA for Fox Sports. He touched on the Paul Pierce trade speculation during an afternoon live chat. I don’t see any viable trade scenarios between these two teams. A Pau Gasol for Paul Pierce swap works in the trade machine, but I don’t see Danny pulling the trigger [...]
