The Los Angeles Lakers have a worse record than the Philadelphia 76ers, who lost 26 straight games last season. That’s one of those I-Never-Thought-I’d-Say-That-Out-Loud types of statements. With their loss to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday, the Lakers are 0-5 to start the season. Other winless t...

  It’s about time, Pau. For the first time in the last four years, Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol stood up for himself. He finally stuck it to the Lakers organization, which has treated him worse than dirt since the 2009-2010 championship season.  The team has cobwebbed Gasol’s mind with trade talks, hir...

There is no reason to panic about the Lakers' winless preseason, and any negative reaction is an overreaction. Judging a team by its preseason record is naïve because there is no way to know if a team will excel or fall under pressure based on exhibition games. The Miami Heat had slow star...

Ron Says: This offseason’s blockbuster trade among the Lakers, Sixers, Nuggets and Magic not only neutralized the point of last season’s lockout to spread out talent in the league, but also created another title-contending super team by adding the best center in the league to an already star-studded...

This is mostly dedicated to the casual Laker fan bereft of actual basketball knowledge who only watches when the playoffs come around. Plastering everyone’s Facebook news feeds with “Trade Gasol!” after every bad game he has is not only something that could irreversibly harm the team if...
