Lakers Have a Good Game Plan for Celtics: Revenge

No one likes to lose. There isn’t a feeling that is quite as horrible as losing. You can’t forget losing — it stays with you. You wait for that chance to get your revenge and do everything in your power to make that happen. Well, the basketball gods have heard the wishes of Kobe Bryant…Read More

Jackson Tries to Squash Rumors, Still Leaves Future a Mystery

We all know by now that Phil Jackson is an absolute master of mind games.  Most will argue that it’s one of the main contributing factors to the success he’s had throughout his career.  The most likely scenario for Jackson’s future is that he either continues to coach the Lakers, or retires.  Last season, he…Read More

Lakers Take Care of Business with Thrilling Road Win

One round into the 2010 NBA Playoffs, and the defending champs have already been tested.  After the Thunder took game four to tie the series 2-2, I wrote how the Lakers needed to take care of business at home in Game 5 if they wanted to avoid flirting with disaster heading back to Oklahoma City’s…Read More

Phil Jackson Tweaked by T.J. Simers, Drops F-Bomb in Post Game Conference

Ahh, the perils of live television! ESPN and ESPNEWS got burned Sunday when they chose to run Phil Jackson’s post game news conference live following Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals series between the Lakers and Rockets. Bothered by the notoriously fearless and often times disrespectful T.J. Simers, who asked if the Lakers were…Read More

Phil Jackson Done With Lakers After Next Season

I’m guessing this isn’t necessarily at the forefront of Laker fans’ minds considering the team went to the finals last year and appear poised for another run this year. Still, despite the strong start and the focus on the matter at hand, what Phil Jackson supposedly dropped in an interview with Magic Johnson will certainly…Read More
