Don't feel sorry for Pau Gasol. He doesn't feel bad for himself.
Kobe Bryant played only six games this season and Steve Nash barely made it through 10, but Gasol will appear in his 57th game Wednesday against San Antonio, the same team that blasted the...

SACRAMENTO — Pau Gasol's vertigo came back with a vengeance and Chris Kaman's right calf wouldn't cooperate.

SAN ANTONIO — Sure, why not. Another ragged moment for the Lakers and their fine tradition.
They never lost this badly to the San Antonio Spurs until Friday, a 119-85 blush of a game for the visitors that blew past their embarrassing 32-point...

PORTLAND, Ore. — Funny guys, those Lakers.
Their own fan base turned on them weeks ago, more interested in pingpong-ball percentages than on-court victories, so what did the Lakers do?

SACRAMENTO -- Sad news for Lakers writers. There might be only seven games left to cover the eminently quotable, entirely likable Nick Young.

Jodie Meeks was the star of the Lakers' show last Sunday, outscoring Kevin Durant but also reminding his team of something less enthralling.
He'll be a free agent in July. Almost all the Lakers will be, in fact.

The Lakers will probably be mathematically eliminated next week from a playoff spot, four weeks before the regular season ends.

Chris Kaman found time to joke about his best game with the Lakers. The rest of the season, excruciating at worst and challenging at best, melted behind him.
He had 28 points, 17 rebounds and six assists in an easy 115-99 victory Sunday over the Phoenix...

MILWAUKEE — It's been a common theme this season, all those Lakers in the last year of their contracts.
It can lead to friction — Pau Gasol poked at the selfishness of some teammates after a loss last month in Memphis — and can...
