    Daunte Wright remembered as the Prince of Brooklyn Center by Rev. Al Sharpton Publisher pauses new Philip Roth biography as author, Blake Bailey, is accused of rape and grooming The relationship between Shaquille O'Neal and the late Kobe Bryant, both on and off the court, is one of the more captivating storylines in NBA history. The duo won three consecutive titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, but their partnership came to an end shortly after an NBA Finals loss to the Detroit Pistons in 2004, when O'Neal was traded to the Miami Heat in exchange for Lamar Odom, Caron Butler, Brian Grant and two draft picks. © Provided by CBS Sports Ask any random NBA fan, and they'll tell you the reasoning behind the O'Neal trade was simple: He and Bryant could no longer coexist due to their on- and off-court disagreements, and it became a "him or me" situation, with the Lakers eventually choosing the younger Bryant over O'Neal.

    The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off of an unprecedented season as they won their 17th championship. But due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, all the post-season games in 2019-20 were played in empty arenas. This trend continued early this season as well, as no fans were allowed in the Staples Center. With no fans, Lakers’ ring ceremony in the opening night certainly was missing its general flair. Jeanie Buss reveals the unveiling of Lakers’ 17th championship banner While the ring ceremony might have concluded, the Laker fans still can celebrate last season’s prolific championship run. With the Lakers finally welcoming fans from the second week of April, the Staples Center will finally see crowds in some capacity. Given that they will have a number of fans in the arena, Jeanie Buss recently revealed when the team is going to unveil its 17th championship banner.

    The LA Lakers had an incredible run to the NBA championship last season. In just two seasons since his arrival, LeBron James brought Anthony Davis to the Lakers and then worked with him to bring the NBA championship back to LA. For the Lakers, it was their first championship in 10 years, and a signal to the league that they’re back. But the rest of the NBA is now gunning for their spot. Jeanie Buss fires a warning Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss spoke to Stephen A. Smith recently about the NBA aiming to dethrone them. She welcomed their competition, noting that their rivals make them stronger. Buss highlighted the coaching staff, including head coach Frank Vogel, and noted how they welcome the challenge.

    The Lakers are now standing at the 30-win mark after winning the last two games. It was very important for them to collect those victories to take control of their #4 seeding in the WC. Also, they will not want to impose a lot of pressure on their injured duo when they do come back.  As of now, the Anthony Davis situation is such that the team will reevaluate his condition in the coming week or so. For LeBron James, early May seems like the most probable time for his comeback. But how does the Lakers’ President view this? Jeanie Buss and her trademark optimistic self In a recent interview with Stephen A. Smith, the proud owner of the Lakers gave her prediction for the duo’s return. The 59-YO detailed: “It’s not fun having your two top players out. I’ve been proud of the way the team has kinda bounced back. We had a nice win last night. I’m looking forward to getting those two guys back. And certainly, the addition of Andre Drummond, who we picked up in the...
    If the Lakers want to be crowned the too-early favorites for the NBA title, the Nets are happy to oblige. After watching the Nets add James Harden via trade in January and, more recently, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge off the buyout market, Lakers owner Jeanie Buss had a message heard coast-to-coast: Bring it on. “It brings out the best in us,” Buss said Monday on “Stephen A’s World” on ESPN+. “When teams identify us as the team to beat and they gear up to go at us head-to-head, that makes us work harder. So, bring it on.” Nets coach Steve Nash, who played the final two seasons of his Hall of Fame career for the Lakers before retiring in 2015, didn’t exactly throw down a gauntlet in return. “They are a great team, great franchise, defending champs,” Nash said. “So, they are the team to beat.” Aldridge acknowledged he listened to pitches from other unspecified teams — the Lakers were in the mix but the Heat were considered the front-runners, according to Yahoo — before choosing the Nets.

    Getty Jeanie Buss during the 2020 NBA Finals Coming into the 2020-21 NBA season the Los Angeles Lakers were expected by many to repeat for another NBA title easily. The Lakers on paper at least had the best duo in the NBA with LeBron James and Anthony Davis and added the top two Sixth Man of the Year candidates from 2020 in Dennis Schroeder and Montrezl Harrell. Unfortunately for Lakers fans, the Brooklyn Nets burst into the championship picture like wildfire. They had already come into the season with a healthy and well-rested Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and then made the trade of the season when they acquired James Harden from the Houston Rockets by way of a blockbuster trade in January.

    Getty Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. There’s been so much debate over who is the best player in the NBA over the last few years. LeBron James has spent over a decade dominating the league but it just seemed like a matter of time before somebody better showed up. Kevin Durant looked like he could take the mantle, then Steph Curry, then Kawhi Leonard and then Giannis Antetokounmpo. While all four of those men are elite superstars, none of them have done enough to prove that they’re better than LeBron. Giannis made it clear that awards and stats don’t matter. He believes that the Los Angeles Lakers star is the best around and it’s not even debatable. “For sure, I think he’s one of the best players in the league. For sure. There’s no doubt,” Giannis said, via USA Today. “He’s a champion. And as long as you’re the champion, you’re the best player in the league. I don’t care who’s the MVP, I don’t care who’s the leading scorer in the NBA. If you’re the champion on...
    Whether it is on the basketball court or in the business world, Shaquille O’Neal is a force to be reckoned with. He is one of the most dominant players the NBA has ever seen.

    A couple of days ago, Kyrie Irving caused a stir among NBA fans all around the world when he suggested that the league should change its logo to a silhouette of the late Kobe Bryant. While some criticized the comment, fans all over the world have supported the initiative. Even Kobe’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, came out in support of Kyrie. Yesterday, Lakers’ President Jeanie Buss became the latest person to come out to bolster Kyrie & Vanessa’s comments. She tweeted, “I agree with Vanessa Bryant. Kobe set a standard and players agree too. Let me know what you think.” This is not the first time that the NBA community has wanted Kobe to be the logo. After the tragic death of the ‘Black Mamba‘, fans around the world signed a petition to change the league’s logo. The league, however, didn’t pay any heed. The NBA community has been absolutely buzzing about a possible change in the league’s logo. There hasn’t been a major change in the league’s logo since its rebranding in 1969. Given the current logo’s popularity all over...
    In September 2019, a handful of NBA executives joined hands to create a premium line of Tequilas named Cincoro Tequila. Almost 1.5 years since then, the brand and two of its owners are again making headlines for some non-business reasons. It is the Lakers’ President Jeanie Buss and the Hornets owner Michael Jordan. Recently, the six-time grand slam champion MJ turned 58-YO and received wishes from all around the world. Among all the wishes, the one that stood apart came from Jeanie Buss, who raised many eyebrows with her style. Lakers’ President and her cryptic message for Michael Jordan The 59-YO high-achieving NBA executive wrote a question on her Twitter post and left everything else to the imagination.  This post immediately led to brewing rumors about the phenomenal leader making a move on Air Jordan. However, one must logically read them as mere reactions to a very sweet post from an MJ fan who has watched him age like wine.  Interestingly, Jeanie and MJ share many commonalities, the most common being legendary coach Phil Jackson. After the Jordan era ended...

    At times, talented players are not the only thing a team requires. A lot more thought goes out into bringing new players into an established team. The perfect example of this is Dwight Howard being acquired by the Lakers in the 2011-12 season. His chemistry with the team just didn’t fit and the Lakers’ president blames their then head coach, Mike D’Antoni. Even when Dwight was just in high school, he became a prospect that nobody could miss out on. He was so highly skilled that he didn’t even need to go to college and directly made it to the 2004 NBA Draft. Orlando Magic grabbed Howard when they had the chance, and since then he has been making a significant impact. So much so, that he ended up carrying Magic to the NBA Finals and ended up with the Defensive Player of The Year Award. However, it was only a matter of time before Howard wanted more growth. He was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, but then the downfall beg an. By the looks of it, a Kobe...

    Since the league is resuming on neutral grounds, there won’t be any significant home games for the participating teams. The staff inside the bubble are also limited. This means that there will be lots of work in hands for everyone. That is when Rob Pelinka stepped up for the Los Angeles Lakers and made life easier for his team’s staff.  For those of you who are unaware of who Pelinka is, he is the General Manager of the Lakers and the Vice President of Basketball Operations.

The letter began with, “Dear Whore,” and it appeared to have been written on a typewriter. The letter only got nastier and used the n-word. “After 60 years as a huge Lakers fan, I now say to hell with the overpaid … traitors and the NBA,” the person wrote. The n-word was blacked. “Go to hell and join (expletive) Kobe Bryant” is how it finishes.
