Kobe on Dwight: ‘next year he’ll be unbelievable’

  It’s exit interview season at the Lakers’ training facility in El Segundo. Kobe Bryant, and his crutches, took the mic. Here’s what he had to say about pending free agent Dwight Howard and his chances of re-signing:   “I hope he does. It’s a matter what he feels in his heart. He’s reached...

Nash, Blake, Meeks out for Lakers

  The injuries keep coming out in Los Angeles. Who says Lakers haven’t been consistent this season?   In the second half of the Game 2 loss at San Antonio last night, Mike D’Antoni may have lost both of his point guards.   Steve Nash says he re-aggravated his right hip/hamstring injury from a few...

Steve Nash gets epidural

  Is Steve Nash pregnant? I mean, when you hear the word ‘epidural’, isn’t that what comes to mind?   Seriously, it appears as though Nash’s body is failing him. He started the season breaking a leg on a routine D-slide down court. Now, he’s suffering from an ailment that stretch from his hip...

Steve Nash out again

  I’m still not certain if Steve Nash’s injury from Thursday night was his hip or his hamstring. One thing, though, is for sure…..he is out again. Just minutes into the Lakers’ game at Sacramento on Saturday night, Steve re-injured his hip/hamstring. He will not return to the game. Steve Blake will take ‘The Nashster’s minutes...

Kobe, Nash limping towards playoffs?

  The Lakers didn’t just lose a basketball game at Milwaukee on Thursday night, they lost health too.   Steve Nash suffered a ‘hip spasm’ against the Bucks. It showed early in the second half when he made three un-Nash like passes for turnovers. He left the game and did not return. Steve Blake...

Report: Nash to Pacers for Granger, Hill?

Are the Lakers trading Steve Nash to Indiana for Danny Granger and George Hill? Um, I say Not. This report is making its way around the net with reported origins from ESPN. I have urged the Lakers to pursue Danny Granger in the past to help replace Kobe’s scoring one day. Getting George Hill...

Nash vs Howard: Steve is the problem

  Steve Nash, the always supportive teammate, is probably the last guy to get into it with a fellow baller. That’s why fans and media (like Kevin Ding) are up in arms the day after the former MVP was irate at Dwight Howard on a play that went wrong for the Los Angeles Lakers in Miami. I’d...

Lakers still have a big problem

  All this ‘Kobe Johnson’ stuff is all well and good, but the Los Angeles Lakers still have a big problem…. …and it’s not the Kobe-Dwight beef. Kobe Bryant as point guard and Steve Nash spotting up? it’s just bizarre. It can’t possibly be the recipe for continued success in L.A….not even in a local...

Passing Kobe, Hidden Nash

  Well, it only took 19 years. Kobe Bryant has decided that shooting less and setting the table for his teammates more is the way to play basketball….and the Lakers have won their last two games because of it. Friday vs Utah Jazz: 14 pts (7-10 shooting), 14 assts, 9 rebs Sunday vs Oklahoma...

Nash agrees with me, Lakers ‘lack committment’

  Rick Reilly of ESPN reported that Steve Nash cites a lack of commitment by players to the system as one of the reasons for the Los Angeles Lakers’ struggles this season. “We’re not all committing to what they want us to do,” Nash said. “We’re half stuck in our own, old ways. We have to...

Recap: Grizzlies drop Lakers by 13

  The offense is back in Memphis! The Grizzlies, after not eclipsing 85 points in their last six games, scored 106 as they beat the Lakers Wednesday night at The Grindhouse. I expected Mike D’Antoni to hide Steve Nash on Tony Allen in this game, but he didn’t. Instead, Steve was put on Mike...

Lakers meet to ‘clear the air’

  The Los Angeles Lakers held a meeting in Memphis before Wednesday’s shootaround. Kobe Bryant directly asked Dwight Howard if the bigman disliked played with him. “Guys went at each other a little bit,” said a person who witnessed the meeting. Mike D’Antoni opened up the meeting by expressing his fatigue of reading grievances expressed in...

Lakers should use ‘Stockton rule’ with Nash

  There’s a laundry list of issues for the Los Angeles Lakers these days. One of which, is their poor bench play. Whenever this group plays a contender, they lose all control of the game early in the 2nd quarter (see losses to Spurs, Thunder, and Clippers). Fear not, I have a solution for Mike D’Antoni....

Lakers can take positives from Clipper loss

  The Clippers beat the Lakers 107-102 Friday night. While the Lakers never led in the game, all wasn’t lost. The purp n’ yellow can take a lot of positives away from this one. 1. Mike D’Antoni can easily improve bench production. The Lakers’ worst stretch against the Clippers happened to start the 2nd...

Lakers beat Warriors in instant classic

  The Lakers beat the Warriors in an instant classic on Saturday night, 118-115 in overtime. They came back from a double-digit deficit in the second half and showed a lot of confidence in Mike D’Antoni’s gameplan. The contest reminded me of the electricity of that 2001 contest that featured 50 point games by both Kobe Bryant...
