SORT BY Relevancy
Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers are used to contending for championships, but through five games the team is tied with the Philadelphia 76ers (0-6) for the fewest wins in the league -- zero.
Bryant’s disdain for losing and the struggles of the Lakers prompted an interesting question: Would the Lakers and Knicks benefit from a trade involving Bryant?
New York has Phil Jackson, the Triangle offense and cap space to absorb Bryant’s contract and the Lakers aren’t going to contend this season with or without the team’s longtime superstar.
Conversely, the Houston Rockets were undefeated until Saturday night after some experts believed the team would take a step back with the loss of Chandler Parsons and free agency addition of Trevor Ariza.
In the Eastern Conference, the Cleveland Cavaliers have gotten off to a slow start (2-3) and not dominated out of the gate as many predicted.
With that in mind, Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops joined Yahoo! Sports Radio to discuss the struggles of the Lakers and Cavaliers, the rumors surrounding Bryant and how James Harden and Dwight Howard have carried the Rockets.
The Boston Celtics kick off their 2014-15 road schedule by traveling to Houston, TX to take on Dwight Howard, James Harden and the Rockets.

The Houston Rockets are legitimate contenders in the Western Conference. The Houston Texans have the No.1 overall pick in the NFL Draft and desperately need a franchise QB. Is there one available? And a quick word on the Southland Conference tournament in Katy, which I'll be covering this week.
(We might get into some Astros talk if we have time. Couple of interesting notes there.)
Fresh off Game 1 of the Blazers-Rockets series, how far can Houston really take this thing? Also, the football media has waned on Teddy Bridgewater in startling fashion. All of a sudden, everything that's been said about him as a promising NFL prospect is out the window. Hard to make sense of it. But let's discuss.
Welcome to Day 2 of NBA Free Agency, when we will learn how the lack of state income taxes could have an impact on Carmelo Anthony's future.
A day after being feted by the Chicago Bulls, Anthony will visit the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets today. If he signs with either team, he will not have to pay any state income taxes because Texas does not levy them.
New York? Oh yeah.Not only is there a state ioncome tax, but there is a city income tax for residents of the five boroughs. California? Yup. And not only is there a state income tax, there is a millionaire's tax that makes the NBA's luxury taxes look tame by comparison.
You can bet your bottom dollar that both the Rockets and Mavs will make sure this is made known to Anthony, and you can bet your other bottom dollar that the Mavs will point out the fact that they can give Anthony a max salary, whereas the Rockets and Bulls cannot.
Plenty more on the Melo situation along with lots of other news from the first day of NBA free agency in this interview with The Fan Morning Show on WHFS in Tampa, Florida.

MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- Rockets Away Dream Babies. Coming back from business trips in Wilmington, Nort Carolina and several seminars in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I find that the world has changed just over several weeks. It has changed so much, my ex is not even talking to me. No mad either. The President is to meets with leaders from Central America about their kids; The Rocket red glares are still flying across the deserts of Israel, and President Putin continues to supply rockets that have taken the lives of over 298 people that has nothing to do with him or his imperialistic actions.
We will be talking sports and having fun doing it. We will be joined by 76ers G Tony Wroten, who will discuss his upcoming basketball camp, season and more. Also, Rockets G Scotty Hopson, who will discuss his summer league play and the upcoming season. Former University of Cincinnatti star and NBA free agent Sean Kilpatrick will join us to discuss his bif time summer league performance and more. Talking Ray Rice and Stephen A. Smith fallout, MLB trading deadline, NFL tradining camps and so much more. Listen @ Blogtalkradio.com/pgant or call 646-727-3070
