Nick Young Is Just Like Prince And Michael Jackson Says Nick Young

459269900-2

Nick “Swaggy P” Young is known for many things but a lack of swagger isn’t one of them. The Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard recently returned to the Lakers lineup from injury and the Lakers have since gone on a two game winning streak. Coincidence? Of course not, says Swaggy P. “It’s all about my

Jeremy Lin Eloquently Captures Everything Wrong With The Lakers

jeremy lin

The NBA season is young but there is already one fact that is undeniably clear. The Los Angeles Lakers are awful. As of Monday, the team is currently 1-9, “good” enough for last place in the Western Conference. The only worse team in the entire NBA by W-L record is the 0-9 Philadelphia 76’ers (who

The NBA Reveals Christmas Jerseys For 2014 Which Are Thankfully Sleeve-Free

The NBA has quickly made it a tradition to make their Christmas games special by having the teams dress in one-off alternate Christmas jerseys. The practice makes the games feel more celebratory and, not coincidentally, allows the NBA to sell even more jerseys. And while the past couple of years have been an unmitigated disaster

Lakers Forward Ed Davis Trolls Charles Barkley After Team’s First Win

fron88

Charles Barkley’s headine-captivating¬†hunger strike is over following the Lakers’ 107-92 win over Charlotte on Sunday and one Lakers player is especially happy about it.

Appreciating Gerald Green Dunking All Over The Lakers

Gerald Green

Let’s take a moment and thank the Phoenix Suns for re-re-introducing super-human dunk machine Gerald Green into our lives. The former 18th overall pick (in the 2005 NBA draft) was a member of the last preps-to-pros class, and his career quickly descended down the path of “cautionary tale” as he bounced around to four teams

Three Lakers Converge On A Rebound

Lakers

Good job, good effort, fellas. In a related story, Kobe Bryant scored 39 points (on 37 field goal attempts), as the Lakers only lost to the Phoenix Suns by six points instead of twenty. One other item of note: with Kobe attempting to shoot the Lakers back into it, Carlos Boozer (of all people) led

charlesbarkley

In today’s episode of “Charles Barkley Speaks For America”, we have a comment from last night’s broadcast of the Cavaliers-Knicks game, for which the Chuckster and Reggie Miller teamed up to provide color analysis alongside Marv Albert.

Kobe Bryant Didn’t Just Call Dwight Howard “Soft” The Other Night

BASKET-BKN-BKO-NBA

So, yeah. Can’t repeat too much of what Kobe Bryant had to say to Dwight Howard during the Lakers and Rockets game on October 28th. Let’s just say that “teddy bear” was not among the descriptors that Kobe threw Dwight’s way on the court on Tuesday night. Language is obviously NSFW. My dude Kobe letting

Welcome Back, NBA! We’ve Missed You!

NBA

Before we get to Tuesday night’s action, a quick note: This NBA recap column will (hopefully) be a recurring thing. It won’t run every day, and most certainly not weekends (I like having some semblance of a life), but I’m shooting for three days a week, or whenever I see fit. Also, it won’t address
