    This Day In Sports History (June 12th) — Los Angeles Lakers

    It was on this day in 2002 that the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA Championship.  They would do so by defeating the New Jersey Nets 113-107 in Game Four of the NBA Finals. The Lakers entered the 2001-02 NBA season having won the last two NBA Championships.  And with the likes of Kobe Bryant, […]

    The poor Kobe-less Lakers were completely outclassed by the San Antonio Spurs during Round 1 of the 2013 NBA Playoffs. Tony Parker and company swept L.A. right out of the playoffs in four straight games, outscoring them by a whopping 75 points. Now coach Mike D’Antoni will have the whole offseason to ponder what life […]

    What is an NBA fan to do when his team of high-priced underachieving superstar players is on the verge of getting swept right out of the first round of the playoffs? Well, for one Lakers fan on Sunday, the answer to that question was “heckle the Spurs’ Matt Bonner without mercy.” Why Matt Bonner? The […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/17/2013 — Pau Gasol

    The Lakers entered their season finale on Wednesday not knowing whether they would be taking part in the 2013 NBA playoffs, but a loss by the Utah Jazz assured them of at least the eighth spot in the Western Conference, and a victory over the Houston Rockets later that night was enough to bump them into seventh. Leading the […]

    Have you ever heard an athlete quote Right Said Fred in a post-game interview before? No? Well, that’s about to change. The Los Angels Lakers beat the New Orleans Hornets 104-96 last night to climb into 8th place in the Western Conference, and thus, they are now in the playoff picture. Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 3/12/2013 — Dwight Howard

    Nothing seems to motivate a basketball player quite like playing on the road against their previous team in front of the fans that they used to call their own.  We’ve seen Vince Carter do it to the Toronto Raptors.  We’ve seen LeBron James do it to the Cleveland Cavaliers.  And last night, it was the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 3/6/2013 — Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant went into last night’s game against the New Orleans Hornets with a nagging elbow injury.  He came out of it with one of his most impressive performances of the season. The Lakers trailed the Hornets by as much as 25 points, and with 6:22 remaining in the game they found themselves trailing by a score […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/24/2013 — Kobe Bryant

    Prior to yesterday’s NBA match-up between the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers, Mavs owner Mark Cuban suggested that the Lakers should consider using the amnesty clause on Kobe Bryant.  Well, let’s just say that perhaps Cuban should have waited until after the game to open his mouth, because his comments seemed to inspire […]
