It’s no secret that Kobe Bryant’s been struggling this season. NBA players know it. Fans know it. And the media definitely know it. And Bryant apparently knows it too. So much in fact, that he’s announced his retirement at the end of 2015-16 season. From The Player’s Tribune: Dear Basketball, From the moment I started
It’s no secret that Kobe Bryant sucks right now. In 11 games this season, the Lakers legend is averaging 15.2 points (the second lowest average of his career after his rookie season), 3.5 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game on a depressing 31% shooting percentage (and an even more mindbogglingly bad 19.5% from three). To
One can understand not wanting to give up the three-point line to Stephen Curry, even in transition. The man is really, really good at making long-distance shots. However, the innovative defensive technique of “literally jumping to Curry’s side off of a little head jab” may not be the best way to guard the reigning MVP.

Thanks to something close to a perfect storm, tickets for tonight’s regular season match up between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers are selling in the hundreds of dollars. The huge demand for tickets can be traced to a few reasons according to StubHub spokesman Cameron Papp: “The aspects of being the
In all of sports, it is harder to find a bigger homer than Earvin “Magic” Johnson. The Los Angeles Lakers all-time great is well known for his eternal optimism when it comes to the purple and gold, even if it’s been (understandably) tempered this season. Take these beautiful Tweets from earlier this month. Laker Nation:
The Golden State Warriors are currently sitting at a record-tying 15-0 start to their season. The opponent who will try to deny them history is the decidedly less successful Los Angeles Lakers who have a Western Conference worst 2-11 record. Still, because he literally can’t just say that his squad will likely lose, Los Angeles
After the Lakers win over the Pistons on Sunday, Lakers guard and swag expert Nick Young broke out a fantastic *NSYNC shirt to make a statement about the Lakers being “in sync.” Good win … Way to be NSync out there 👀😂😂 A photo posted by Nick Young (@swaggyp1) on Nov 15, 2015 at 9:49pm
The Mavericks handed the Lakers their eighth loss of the season yesterday. Dallas center Zaza Pachulia somehow had 18 points and 16 rebounds while shooting 11 free-throws, but Dirk Nowitzki had this sweet move on the left block posting up Kobe Bryant. The German started to post the 38-year-old Bryant after Larry Nance Jr. switched
Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers played against the Miami Heat without the help of Kobe Bryant, who sat out due to some back issues. While Kobe was unable to suit up, he was able to offer some sage advice to Dwyane Wade’s son Zaire. After Wade mentioned that he didn’t like how Zaire didn’t
It’s no secret that Kobe Bryant’s 2015-16 season is off to a rough start. In five games this season, the 20 year veteran is averaging 16/2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game while shooting an abysmal 32.1% from the field and 21.1% from three. His team’s record isn’t faring much better at 1-4.
It’s no secret that D’Angelo Russell has been struggling to start the season. Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott running around without his pants on, shouting orders and not playing him in the fourth quarter to end games certainly hasn’t helped, but that’s beside the point. While Karl-Anthony Towns, Emmanuel Mudiay, and Jahlil Okafor
