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

Kobe’s Done Playing GM with Lakers

If you remember, and it’s pretty hard to forget, last summer was Kobe’s Armageddon. There was the flip-flopping and questioning whether he even wanted to be a Laker. But then Andrew Bynum started putting up double-doubles, and the tension was eased. And once Pau Gasol was acquired, Kobe was campaigning for Mitch Kupchak to be…Read More

Lakers Already Making Moves, Odom?

Not really. I guess those were some hooligans watching Game 2 at Staples Center. Next time use some common sense,…Read More

Refs Screwing the Lakers?

Another significant playoff game gone by, another critical performance by the referees. I didn’t have the sound on while watching the game so I have no idea what was and wasn’t said by the commentary team, but there was no question that the boxscore painted a clear picture of free throw disparity between the two…Read More

Foul on Derek Fisher or No Foul?

I suppose another way of asking the same question is: should the refs be blowing the whistle that late in the game? In case you missed the close play or want to see it again, here it is, because it’s pretty clear there’s a lot of contact. That looks a lot like a foul, and…Read More

Lamar Odom: Lakers Wanted the Spurs

When most players are asked about an opponent they prefer to face, they usually stay pretty P.C. on the issue giving the “We don’t care who we play” line, or the “We’ll come out ready to play regardless of who the opponent is.” That’s kind of what I expected from Lamar Odom on the subject…Read More
