The Nick Young Redemption Song

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 16:10:47 +0000

Nick Young may never quite be the same effervescent player he was for the Los Angeles Lakers three years back. Too much water has passed under the bridge and time has a habit of adding a layer of shade or two. But the fact that he’s still with the team is one of the most […]

Preseason Preview and Chat: Lakers vs. Suns

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 21:53:34 +0000

The Lakers’ preseason ends tonight with a match up against the Suns. While the team still has a couple of roster cuts to make — and maybe an assistant coach to hire? — and then sort out whether or not to treat this game like a real dress rehearsal, I think there is really only […]

Coach World Peace?

If you look only at the cumulative stats, Brandon Ingram is not having a very good preseason. He’s shooting 41% from the field, scoring 8.1 points a night, grabbing a little over 2 rebounds, and dishing almost 2 assists a game. For most of the team’s 7 exhibition contests, he could be seen floating around the perimeter, […]

Preseason Preview and Chat: Lakers vs. Warriors

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 21:25:48 +0000

After a loss to the Kings on Thursday, the Lakers are now 2-3 in the preseason. Thursday’s game saw a fantastic offensive performance from D’Angelo Russell undone by bad defense across the board. The Lakers couldn’t contain dribble penetration, didn’t tag cutters, had slow rotations back to the 3 point line, and gave up open […]
