Future Is Bright for the Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off of consecutive losing seasons for the first time in recent memory. Bad decisions by former front office boss Jim Buss and former general manager Mitch Kupchak set the Lakers back in a huge way, and fans were praying for a miracle to come and rescue them. Enter team…

Lonzo Is Ballin’

Look, I know it's only the NBA Summer League.  In fact, I almost never pay too much attention to it. But I can't help but notice the buzz generated by the presence of Lonzo Ball throughout the 2017 NBA Summer League.

Who Should Replace Mike D’Antoni?

With Mike D’Antoni quitting, the Los Angeles Lakers are once again starting from the drawing board.
