    EVERYTHING LAKERS w/ STEPHANIE LAKERGURL BEARD -UNTOLD STORIES ABOUT KOBE BRYANT

    in Basketball

          So, this is the final season for Kobe Bryant.  He will rank in the top portion of all time great basketball players.  In the top.  I have never seen anyone as intense as Kobe.  Michael Jordan may be the top BBall player of all times, but I didn't see the intensity that Kobe played with when he was on the court.  This doesn't make him better than Jordan, and you are looking at a wounded Kobe, who is probably still better than quite a few players, but his intensity?  Put in Mike Singletary from the Chicago Bears football, and Ray Lewis from the Ravens - for their intensity.  Intensity gives you an edge - YOU ARE TOTALLY FOCUSED - Totally, as focused as Stephanie Beard is going to be on today's show - share that spark of interest on B Ball with her - 347-205-9366.

    Lakers Nation Podcast Episode 11: D'Angelo Rising

    in Basketball

    LakersNation.com's Jabari Davis was joined by Jamieson Welsh (Fox Sports Radio) and Jordan Buscarini (Castle Country Radio) once again for this week's episode. The three of them discussed Kobe Bryant's condition and where the bulk of his remaining minutes should be devoted, as well as D'Angelo Russell's continued improvement both by the eye-ball test and the numbers and whether he should be the permanent starter at this point.


    Corey Hansford also joined the show in order to give a mid-season assessment and chime in on this week's LakersNation.com Roundtable Discussion: which of the young core players has shown the greatest potential to be a superstar at this level?


    Davis also asked each of them to put on their proverbial GM hats and decide which direction would be the best way to go with the future of the small forward position with rumors of potential interest in upcoming free agents like DeMar DeRozan, Hassan Whiteside and Harrison Barnes (amongst others) from the organization.

    Lakers Nation Podcast Episode 12: Dave Schilling

    in Basketball

    LakersNation.com's Jabari Davis caught up with former Grantland.com contributor and current writer for outlets such as The Guardian and Vice Sports (among others) Dave Schilling for this edition of the podcast. The two of them discussed the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers, how watching Michael Jordan compete with Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp made Schilling fall in love with the NBA during the 1990s, Schilling's thoughts on the young core and several other topics related to the current team.


    Schilling voluntarily acknowledged his desire for the team to move in a different direction with the coaching staff after the season and even offered a 'familiar' solution as a potential head coach. The two of them also addressed the upcoming free agency period and which strategy the front office should take as well as Schilling's belief that LSU's Ben Simmons is the prospect the Lakers should most covet in the upcoming NBA Draft

    Lakers Nation Podcast: Episode 7

    in Basketball

    LakersNation.com's Jabari Davis was joined by Jamieson Welsh (Fox Sports Radio) and Jordan Buscarini (Castle Country Radio) for the seventh installment of your Lakers Nation Podcast. The trio discussed Magic Johnson's recent comments about the front office and Jim Buss in particular. Davis asks if Johnson's criticism, while somewhat accurate, comes across as a bit of revisionist history given the fact that the former Laker-great publicly endorsed several of the moves he seems to be critical of at this point. 


    Davis also asked the panel to discuss some of the positive developments they've seen from the young core, while also addressing the current rotation, player frustration and whether the team may consider moving anyone if a more compatible or promising player were to become available on the market.


    Rather than their customary 'Final Shots' to close the show, the three of them took a moment to acknowledge some of Kobe Bryant's greatest moments since the 20-year-veteran officially announced his retirement last week.
