Young ranked fifth among Lakers with a 10.7 nERD on Friday night, per numberFire Live. That brings his nERD to a 1.7 on the season, which ranks second among Lakers players and...

Even Kobe Bryant is preaching patience with the young Lakers

Even Kobe Bryant is preaching patience with the young Lakers

When Kobe is saying to slow your roll, it might be time to consider it. The Los Angeles Lakers 10-10 start skewed expectations for the team considerably. The early success showed just how good the team can be when everything is clicking, but no team plays their best basketball for an entire season. Nowhere was this demonstrated better than by the Lakers’ regression to the mean since then, going 6-21 over their last 27 games since that serendipitous 20-game start. However, the Lakers’ young talent should never have offered much expectation of early success. Young teams simply don’t...

Cavaliers notebook: LeBron James, Kyrie Irving named East starters for All-Star Game; Kevin Love likely to be picked as reserve

No Lakers were named as All-Star starters

No Lakers were named as All-Star starters

The snub is real. The starters for the 2017 All-Star in New Orleans were named on Thursday night, and for the first time in 18 years, Kobe Bryant will not appear in the marquee event. Bryant was not voted in as an All-Star starter in what is one of the most colossal snubs in NBA history mainly due to his not being eligible since he is, you know, retired, and none of the other young Lakers were voted in by a combination of fans, players and media to start the game. The lede here was facetious, as no Lakers were among the fan voting leads as those began to trickle out over the past few...
