Things in Lakerland have been coming together these past few weeks, and Laker Nation is beginning to buzz. Once the postseason comes along, no one will be looking forward to playing Kobe Bryant and his Lakers.
I'm a ballplayer. I'm a pro. I've been in an NBA training camp and have competed in some of the top leagues overseas. Based on these experiences, do I think an openly gay competitor would be accepted in the sports world?
No matter who is brought up, none can compare to the dominance of combination Shaq and Kobe. If only they stayed together and resolved their alpha male differences, the duo could have attained more than eight championships in their respected careers.
James, frustrated with the comparisons, took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to voice his opinion on the situation.
So far the reviews on Howard's commitment to that work have not been stellar. It doesn't really matter if that's my opinion, but it does matter if it is Kobe Bryant's opinion.
Kobe is putting the responsibility on his big men, Dwight, Pau and Earl Clark to be active and aggressive in the post, and demand the ball. If they do not seem engaged or aggressive positing for the ball, Kobe has recently thrust his bigs into the spotlight and they "had" to deliver.
I believe in comebacks and I believe in forgiveness, but they can't happen in the absence of humility, empathy, and genuine remorse. Lance Armstrong has yet to demonstrate any of those things.
As the February 21st trade deadline approaches, the Lakers must make these decisions very quickly; for if they do not, they put the five to ten year fate of the franchise in jeopardy.
So far the Lakers' season is nothing more than a failure, a bust, a sham in the eyes of every Los Angeles fan that hasn't jumped on the Clippers bandwagon by now.
Regardless of an individual's opinion, American or not, this idea that an American's right to bear arms is "sacrosanct" runs too deep to influence a difference in thought process.
Oh, what a night. And what a difference. Like many, I was torn on what to do for New Year's Eve 2012. How many of you agonize over which friends to ...
Even though it's early, the Los Angeles Clippers have proven that they are an elite team in a competitive Western Conference and competitive western city.
With playoff hopes fading for the Lakers, the team needs to get their act together, and fast. The City of Angels might just be a correct nickname for the club offensively (7th in NBA in scoring) but it's looked rather ghoulish on the other side of the ball.
Kobe Bryant became the fifth player and the youngest to reach the 30,000 career point plateau in last night's Lakers win in New Orleans. The other four? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain.
The Los Angeles Lakers have just officially entered the conversation as the best team in the NBA.
The Lakers have always been a unique franchise owned by unique owners. Jerry Buss is 78 and wants to spend his last years watching the type of basketball that he and his fans love. Get ready for some SHOWTIME!
