Stephen A. Smith says Lakers should trade Lebron James

Perpetual windbag, master of cohost subterfuge ( and canoodling) and incessant dour criticizer of black athletes, Stephen A. Smith recently commented on the Lakers and what they should do to improve.

Campazzo suspended, Ellington fined

Wednesday the NBA announced a suspension for Nuggest guard Facubdo Campazzo and a fine for Lakers guard Wayne Ellington for a dustup and Ellington’s later comments on social media.

The Lakers cannot even fire a coach the right way

The worse kept secret in the NBA was the job security, or lack thereof , of Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel.  Considering the expectations, assigned by some of the more optimistic or delusional Laker or LeBron fans, the 2021-22 season was an abject failure and a disappointment of the highest order.  Say what you will about the 2013 Lakers, at least that team made the playoffs ( unfortunately it cost the basketball world the last vestiges of the real Kobe Bryant on NBA hardwoods).  Anytime a high profile organization fails ,but especially…

Russell Westbrook is not the main reason the Lakers stink

Criticizing Russell Westbrook is en vogue right now. Turn to nearly any national sports show and at some point and listeners will be subjected to Westbrook slander of varying degrees. The problem is not with the critical light shone upon Westbrook, per so, but the issue is the false narrative that the spets media is attempting to spin that Russell Westbrook is the anchor that is dragging the Lakers to the bottom of the Western Conference.

The Great MAMBA 

When I first saw you, you had a swagger to you.  Everyone said you wanted to be Jordan but would never be him. It was the 1998 All Star Game and I saw you had no fear. You didn’t back down to MJ.

I watched you miss 3 pointer after 3 pointer in Utah but you didn’t put your head down, you continued to work. …
