Dwight Howard Gets Last Laugh

NBA: Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard, James Harden

The return of Dwight Howard for his 1st game against the Lakers in Staples Center since he became a Houston Rocket wasn’t even close. Howard and the Rockets’ starters were on the bench laughing for the entire 4th quarter.
“I thought we did the best thing we could possibly do and come out here and play well and get a win, and Dwight got us going early,” Chandler Parsons said put it mildly.

My Eyes Have Seen The Glory

    To think Kevin Durant didn’t have his ‘A’ game and still scored 31 of his 43 points in the 2nd half in a win over the woeful Lakers blows the mind.

Let’s Get Drunk & Be Somebody

Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

Best question to Mike D’Antoni on Tuesday before the Lakers left on their road trip: What are his plans if the Lakers land a White House visit? Stumped, D’Antoni finally mumbled incoherently for a few seconds before he said “We’ll talk about that later.” Oh?
Six straight losses now for the Lakers, who are stumbling their way to the bottom of the Western Conference and won’t come within sniffing distance of the White House.
Nick Young blows a gasket, shows some fight when his teammates don’t and the Lakers blow another game in Phoenix.

He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands

Blake Griffin, Chris Kaman

    Blake Griffin and the Clippers put the Lakers in a vice grip and manhandled them with the worst beating since the 2 teams started playing each other. They blitzed them with a 43-point 1st quarter and it over from that point on.

Sopping Up Me Some Cornbread

cornbread

    Being a Laker fan and being in the sad state like the Celtics, I figured it would be a great idea to tweak 1 of the villains from when the rivalry was full of venom and serious hate. Crossing paths in the cafeteria at Staples with Cornbread Maxwell (I can still see him waving that freaking white towel), who works C’s broadcasts, during Wednesday’s Clippers-Celtics snooze fest, I couldn’t believe my fortune.
    “If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that’s a Laker tie,” I said with all the sarcasm I could mount.
    He froze like those guards from Boynton (you reading this Gerry Triggs?) frequently would when I would give them my patented shake move and blow by for a layup.
    After Maxwell regained his composure, then moaned and groaned for about 10 seconds, he finally blurted out: “Ain’t no Laker tie!”
    I’ll bet the farm he’ll check his wardrobe more closely when the C’s return to play the Lakers.

Hey, Look Who Got Off Skid Row

    For Laker haters, it’s been an excellent stretch. Fortunately, for the L.A. fans, the Utah Jazz stopped by and you know the rest of the story. We would have liked to have told you Trey Burke’s version of it but he slipped out of the locker room and let Gordan Hayward explain it all.

‘Now You’re Trading Me For Him?’

Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Four

    WTF
    The class act known as Pau Gasol is enduring trade rumors again. This time he’s gone, but sometimes we wonder how much the Lakers appreciate him.

Taking The 5th

Lamar Odom Flips Out On Photographers In Los Angeles

    lamar2

You reading this Lamar? Want your old job? Didn’t think so.
The Sixers came to L.A. looking for some thrills. As luck would have it (every squirrel gets a nut) Philly found its thrills beating the Lakers for only their 2nd road win this season. Philly caught Cleveland to tie for the worst road mark at 2-13. How about that? The banged-up Lakers were in a giving mood, dropping their 5th straight.
Other lowlights: Mike D’Antoni got a little testy with a reporter before the game after the scribe asked why Laker reserve point guard Kendall Marshall wasn’t playing. “He’s not as good as ‘X,’” D’Antoni said, referring to Xavier Henry. “He’s got to be better than the point guard we have out there. And ‘X’ right now is doing a pretty good job. The other thing going against him is I don’t know him. I’ve maybe seen him play two minutes. I don’t think we’re at the point to experiment. He’s trying to find his way in the league. Hasn’t established that yet.”
Lo and behold Marshall spelled Henry when the latter strained his knee, then played 16 minutes and scored 8 points and handed out 3 assists. The rest of the story…
