Lakers vs. Suns Game Preview: Cloudy skies in LA as Suns visit

Lakers vs. Suns Game Preview: Cloudy skies in LA as Suns visit

The cloudy skies have killed the Lakers’ positive vibes. The Los Angeles Lakers are in the midst of their longest losing streak, which just so happens to coincide with their worst stretch of injuries of the season. The Phoenix Suns are hurting even worse in the win-loss column, which might have something to do with T.J. Warren missing extended time. Nick Young and D’Angelo Russell have begun practicing with the Lakers but are not returning Friday night. Tarik Black and Jose Calderon will also miss the game, leaving the Lakers very shorthanded once again. Things didn’t go well in...

Luke Walton hopes the Lakers’ style of play can help recruit free agents

Luke Walton hopes the Lakers’ style of play can help recruit free agents

Will Los Angeles’ free agency drought come to an end this summer? The Los Angeles’ Lakers’ struggles to recruit top free agents over the last several years have been real, if a bit overstated.
