    The Los Angeles Lakers kicked off the new year by losing their first six games of 2013, but their fortunes could suddenly be changing.  On Sunday, they snapped their streak of futility by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers.  And last night it was their two superstars, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, that were leading the way […]

    When you’re a superstar athlete, your every step is watched and analyzed. The more successful you are, the more everyone knows your every mannerism, tick, and facial expression.

    The Los Angeles Lakers made some pretty big additions to their roster in the offseason—Steve Nash and Dwight Howard—that elevated expectations through the roof.

    11 Most Dominant Championship Runs in NBA History

    We’re almost halfway through the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and so far the San Antonio Spurs have yet to lose a game. In fact, going back to the end of the regular season, they’ve won 18 straight. That’s what I call hot. If the Spurs maintain their dominant play, they have a chance of joining some […]

    The NBA on TNT halftime crew are no strangers to awkwardness.  That fact was evident when they decided to stage a “Shirts-Off Contest” between Charles Barkley and Shaq on Tuesday, and it was reinforced once again during halftime of yesterday’s Game Two showdown between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Stat Line Of The Night — 4/29/12 — Andrew Bynum

    If there is one area of the Los Angeles Lakers’ game that they should be able to take advantage of against almost any team that they may run into during their 2012 playoff run, it is their size in the paint.  They were putting that glaring advantage on display during Game 1 of their Western […]

    The not-so-peaceful elbow that Ron Artest, a.k.a. Metta World Peace, delivered to the head of James Harden was one of the most talked about stories in sports from the past weekend.  It would therefore only make sense for this wild on-court incident that unfolded during Sunday’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma […]
