    Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash to assist in pursuit of Dwight Howard

    Heat faltering may leave Lakers in position to lure LeBron James
    The Lakers don't have to say it and can't under the rules, but they've got to be pulling for the Indiana Pacers to beat the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. They'd probably even root for the  San Antonio Spurs to win the title if that means...

    Lakers season wrap: Coach Mike D'Antoni worthy of blame or credit?
    In a year defined by injury, Coach Mike D'Antoni became a lightning rod for criticism, despite leading the Lakers (45-37) team to a 28-12, seventh-place finish. In the closing moments of the Lakers' sweep by the San Antonio Spurs, the familiar chant...

  • He's just the man to lead the Lakers: Phil for president

    On farewell day, they waved until their hands hurt. Kobe Bryant pleaded for Lakers management to pay millions to Dwight Howard, millions to Pau Gasol, millions for the luxury tax, anything to keep the Lakers together for the final year of his contract....

    Time to look back on Lakers' season and ahead to the next
    Now that the season has ended for the Lakers, there's time to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future. Most of the material over the coming months here on the Lakers Now blog will focus on what the Lakers can do in preparation for next season....
  • Clippers are still playing second fiddle to Lakers in L.A.

    The Clippers have now sold out 92 straight home games with Saturday night's playoff victory in Staples Center. I have always thought it fascinating that there are 19,060 Clippers fans in all of Southern California and every one of them goes to every home...
  • Lakers begin playoffs with a '1996' vibe, and that could be bad

    The last time they tried this, it didn't go so well. The last time the Lakers attempted to win a playoff series without Kobe Bryant, they had home-court advantage, a future Hall of Famer, and absolutely no chance. The year was 1996, and after lurching...
  • Mike D'Antoni takes chants, still hopes to turn them to cheers

    Mike D'Antoni takes chants, still hopes to turn them to cheers
    It is the chant that has defined the season, yet somehow has not defined the man. The most amazing thing about the derisive jeer that has rained upon Mike D'Antoni's slumped shoulders for the last six months is that not once has he jeered back. "We want...
  • Mike D’Antoni introduced as Lakers new coach
