LA Lakers: weighing up the past

The coming NBA season marks the what is – in all likelihood – the final year of Kobe Bryant.  It’ll cost the Los Angeles Lakers a total of $25 million for the pleasure, but indications from Kobe (via Mitch Kupchak) have been that this will be his last.  Would I bet on this?  Well… no […]

Los Angeles Lakers Preview

The Lakers have been a sleeping giant in the Western Conference the past two seasons, playing well below their franchise standards. The Lakers, who are used to setting the pace in the West, have been snuffed during free agency, leaning on the brittle body of Kobe Bryant, and fielding a lineup of relative unknowns. It’s […]

Where’s Lamar Odom Now?

Four years ago, Lamar Odom was a pretty big name in the NBA. He was the 6th man of the year for the Los Angeles Lakers, and he was a big part of two championship teams. The versatile forward was also making a name for himself as a celebrity, as he married into the Kardashian family and was […]

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. […]

LeBron James… gets it.

It's no secret that I've been a critic of LeBron James over the years, there have been no shortage of anti-LBJ diatribes here: but I gotta say, I'm now a bit of a fan.  I know when I decided to try appreciate him, I'm not sure when it happened – becoming fully appreciative of the […]


The way the Lakers have played this season, and the way the fans have reacted, has had me thinking about 'passion'… and the differing levels of fandom.
