I am sorry to see Rudy T. go

I feel bad about Rudy Tomjanovich leaving the Lakers because of his ailment. I think that he could do much for the Laker organization and for the team. However, the man has reached his physical limits and I wish him well. Sign in to see full entry.

Kobe's Lakers Get Past KG and Co.

The Lakers' recent win over Minnesota reminded me of those days when they would come from behind an opponent's lead and win a ballgame. But I also noticed that the TimberWolves seemed to go slack on their game when they had a comfortable lead. Did they treat the game as a kind of practice session? Sign in to see full entry.

Lakers at 6-5 and 8th

I have seen the Lakers at the top of the West's standings for the past five years. Now that they are no longer the powerhouse team that they used to be, it is still consoling to see them holding a respectable place in the middle of the Western pack. I have seen only two of the past eleven games and... Sign in to see full entry.

The New Lakers

I wasn't even aware that the pre-season games are being shown on TV. But the other day, I got a brief view of the new look Lakers in a game against the Goldern State Warriors.
