Christmas battle vs Lakers most expensive ticket left for Bulls in 2014

The Bulls are once again one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference with Derrick Rose back in the mix, despite having some minor injures in his return after basically two years on the shelf.  They added Pau Gasol to the fold in the off-season as free agent signing after he spent many years […]

Kobe vs Durant: previewing the Lakers – Thunder game tonight

The Oklahoma City Thunder will play a matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night at the Staples Center. The rise of the Thunder has come with the decline of the Lakers in the past few seasons. The Lakers have been one of the better teams of this century (2000-present), but they have lost a step or […]


Are the Lakers as bad as Russillo says? (I’d bet they’re not)

Let’s get this out of the way first: the LA Lakers are indeed *bad*.  On perhaps historic levels, for this proud franchise.  But they’re not – as Ryen Russillo recently ranted – “the worst team in the league”.  To continue with the honesty – it wouldn’t particularly bother me if they were.  I love the […]

Lakers Set For Tough Game Against Steph Curry and the Warriors

The time they are a changing in L.A these days in the NBA as the Lakers are in the unusual position of being the second best team in their city. Kobe Bryant is back and healthy but he has very little support around him on this Lakers squad. Bryant this past Tuesday set another NBA record but […]

Top games for Lakers tickets in 2014-15

Last season, by just about any measure, was a disappointment for Los Angeles Lakers fans. In the aftermath of Dwight Howard taking off for the Rockets, Kobe Bryant played just six games after suffering a knee injury and the Lakers finished 27-55, missing the playoffs for the first time in nine seasons and posting the […]

Return of the King

Circle’s complete, the grown man heads back home.  The Miami Heat are now in recovery mode, and in all likelihood will be where the Cleveland Cavaliers were last season: battling for one of the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.  As far as Miami goes, their arrogance that got them the Big Three (and […]

Melo/Heat? Won’t happen…

Well… it’s been a long time since I’ve made a post here (largely due to ‘stuff-in-real-life’), but there’s lots to talk about and I find myself with a few spare minutes. First up… the thought that Melo might end up at the Heat.  Well, ok.  Worth entertaining… but I think it’s nigh on an impossibility. […]


A Year On Since The Passing Of Jerry Buss

Most of you will remember very well the shock that we had almost a year ago today when the news  that Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss had passed away due to his fight with cancer. The news was brought with such sadness due to the man that he was and what he had achieved […]


The Great Kareem

In 1989 when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar left the game at the age of 42, no player had ever played in more All-Star Games, logged more seasons, blocked more shots, scored more points, or won more Most Valuable Player Awards in NBA history. With a momentous list of team and personal accomplishments to his credit, it is […]


Turmoil? In LA? Err…

ESPN published their "NBA Turmoil Rankings", and post reading it two things spring to mind. 1. How desperate are they for news that they create a "Turmoil Rankings" piece!  Dear god, World-Wide Leader: actually do some *reporting*! 2. How on earth are they measuring this?     Some stuff leaps out: first of all, LA […]
