Lakers sign Kaman, Clippers adding Jamison?

  The Los Angeles Lakers have come to terms on a one-year deal with free agent center Chris Kaman. They used their mini-mid-level exception (just over $2 million).

Odom Returning to L.A.?

  According to ESPN’s Ric Bucher, Lamar Odom has his heart set on returning to Los Angeles. This isn’t breaking news considering that Lamar has played like a lost puppy all season long following the botched Chris Paul trade that ended his days with the Lakers. “I’m told that Lamar Odom is desperate to...

While Lamar Odom brought versatility and depth to the Lakers, his loss may be felt most during ‘crunch time’ in Los Angeles.  In recent years, Odom was often out there on the floor to finish games alongside Pau Gasol.

What is Magic’s Beef with Lakers?

What is Magic’s Beef with Lakers?

No one can dispute the love that Magic Johnson has for his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers. The HIV virus may have left his bloodstream but the purple n’ gold never will. That’s why I’ve been caught off guard by his comments lately towards the Laker organization and its players. I always admired how he tried...
