Lakers need cash motivation to take charges

Lakers need cash motivation to take charges

The Los Angeles Lakers have never been known as a team that takes offensive charges. They are trying to change that. Last series, Phil Jackson called his big men "thin-chested" as a way of goading them into standing strong and taking a hit, and the team has been offering financial incentive — $50 per charge. [...]

The Lakers game plan for Rondo

The Lakers game plan for Rondo

Jackson said that the Lakers have four players they will put on Rondo at times: Bryant, Derek Fisher, Shannon Brown and Jordan Farmar. Even though Boston's "Big Three" have been transformed to the "Big Four" thanks to Rondo's emergence, Jackson believes that Rondo still falls further down in the pecking order in a controlled game [...]

Superchoke

Courtney Lee is off the hook. Dwight Howard is the new goat of this series. Yes, I know he sucks at free throws. But if Howard makes one of the two freebies with 11 seconds left and Orlando up 3, the Magic win this game. There's no second-guessing Stan Van Gundy for not-fouling the Lakers. [...]

Et tu, Larry?

Et tu, Larry?

You know, I'm having a hard enough time coping with Kobe Bryant's seemingly eventual championship (and the onslaught of Laker trolls that will hit this site)… the last thing I needed was to hear Larry Bird's current favorite player is a Laker.

No Confidence in the Magic

No Confidence in the Magic

  While I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Orlando Magic manhandle the Cavaliers, deep down, minus all the talk about x's and o's, I doubt their ability to beat the Lakers on the biggest stage in basketball. You can't underestimate just how bad Kobe Bryant wants to redeem himself after last year's embarrassing performance. As for [...]
