Rookie Swings Back At Byron Scott

    Gimme that.
    Emmanuel Mudiay didn’t take well Lakers Coach Byron Scott’s assessment this week that the Denver Nuggets rookie point guard, who the Lakers passed over for D’Angelo Russell, among others, in the 2015 NBA Draft, was a “true” point guard. Ouch. Scott also said that Mudiay didn’t make good decisions during his workout with the Lakers.
    Tuesday night, with Mudiay scoring 12 points and dishing out 10 assists, the Nuggets got the last word against Scott and the winless Lakers.

Los Angeles Lakers Media Day

Kobe Media Day 9-28-15

    Hibbert Media Day 9-28-15

Kobe Bryant wouldn’t say if this season will be his last despite injuries forcing him to miss the majority of the past two campaigns. “Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t,” Bryant said. “Hell if I know.”
Just another Media Day in El Segundo.

Son Rises In West



Did we mention Kevin McHale blew off half the media scrum? Didn’t think so. But sometimes karma’s a bitch and it’s a bitch with drama.
We had a feeling something might be brewing before the game, especially with Sam Cassell counseling Austin Rivers. And if you’re buying that line of bullshit, could we interest you in more hyperbole?
Our blow-by-blow.

Gangs Who Couldn’t Shoot Straight

Heat Lakers

    The Lakers shot 31.5 percent but had a chance to take the Miami Heat to overtime until Kobe Bryant bricked a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left. Such is life in the NBA for these 2 franchises.
    The good news, though, is LeBron will be in town for 2 games on Thursday and Friday.

Nothing But Net

    It’s why we love the NBA. On any given night…
    Best part of Laker-Warriorts game (OK, almost) was Vlade Divac sinking a half-court shot for $90,000 going to charity. Who says this isn’t season for giving?
    Oh, and about that basketball game.

Green Acres

Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers


The Lakers cut Gerald Green 3 seasons ago. That was during the Mike Brown era. Green hasn’t forgotten it. After he torched Byron Scott, Kobe and the winless Lakers’ crew Monday night, I asked Green what happened in his short stint in L.A. “You’d have to ask (Lakers GM Mitch) Kupchak. I don’t know.”
Know this. Green likes to light it up in Staples. He came off the bench for 26 points, a nice ally-oop slam and Phoenix held off the Lakers.

Draft Tier


    Plenty of NBA clubs have needs. Some more than others. The latter sreams you Laker fans.
    We’re on record as saying they’ll grab Marcus Smart, but the Mitch Kupchak in us says Aaron Gordon, if he’s around. Or will Joel Embiid fall into their lap?
