Lakers Avoid 11th Straight Loss As Bryant explodes for 38 points

It was a night were the Lakers wanted to avoid a dreaded 11-game losing streak which would set a franchise record. None of the players wanted that, especially their leader Kobe Bryant. Last night, Bryant made sure the Lakers would not lose and would stop the losing streak. Bryant exploded for 38 points on the way to a Lakers victory over the Timberwolves. Randle, Williams, Clarkson, and Russell all had…

Lakers Tie Franchise Record With 10 Consecutive Losses

When you thought things couldn’t get any worse, last night the Lakers lost to the Hornets 101-82 which resulted in their 10th straight loss. The Hornets are exactly a contender in the East with a record of 23-25, but the Lakers just didn’t have it. They looked lethargic from the start and just couldn’t recover. The loss marked the Lakers 10th consecutive loss tying a franchise record. It’s not exactly a…

Shaquille O’Neal To Be Immortalized

Shaquille O’Neal must have a big smile on his face after learning that he will be immortalized with his own statue outside Staples Center during the 2016-2017 season. O’Neal will join Laker legends Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Jerry West, Kareem-Abdul Jabbar, and Chick Hearn as the only Laker legends to have a statue. After Shaq, we can be sure that Kobe Bryant will be next. Shaquille is arguably one of the…

Lakers On Pace to Set Worst Record In Franchise History

There’s no question that the Lakers aren’t a very good team. In fact, they’re at the bottom at almost every category in the NBA. Last season, the Lakers had an overall record of 21-61 which was their worst in franchise history since being in Los Angeles. It was understandable last season since the team was riddled with a tremendous amount of injuries with players that most people haven’t heard of….

Lakers are playing tougher, but still can’t get over the hump

Thirty eight games into the season and the Lakers have actually looked a lot better. They’re still losing games, but they seem to have found some chemistry. The past two games, the Lakers have played their opponent tough. They had an awful start against the Kings in Sacramento this past Thursday, but they battled all the way back from a 27 point deficit. It seemed like the Lakers were dead…

The Sixers were trying to avoid an NBA record 19 straight losses. Before the game started, Kobe Bryant was hailed with cheers and a unbelieveable introduction by the Sixers announcer as well as a tribute video. Kobe was booed for years by the…

Can the Lakers stop the Warriors From History?

Lakers not only losing games, but could be losing potential future free agents

  Last season was a disaster for the Lakers due to multiple injuries. This year there were higher expectations. New signings and new young talent were supposed to right the ship. Instead, the Lakers have accumulated a record of 1-8 (currently standing). The only win was against a Brooklyn Nets team (currently 1-8) that have struggled mightily as well. The Lakers highest pick in recent memory hasn’t gone off to a…

Lakers Off to a Lackluster Start But Some Bright Spots Shine Through

Can the Lakers fix this mess?

The Lakers have started their ’15-’16 campaign with an 0-3 start. Not exactly what the Lakers and it’s fans had in mind. They are also two losses away from replicating the start they had last season. What has caused the Lakers to fall to such a bad start? It’s a lot of factors and just like last season, the defense has been one of the main culprits. The Lakers have…
