Clippers' Jordan Farmar has his best game of the season against Magic latimes.com/sports/sportsn…

Kamenetzky Brothers

Yes, because Aldridge is hurting for a great point guard. AK AlRT @addzeeferrari: small market vs LA? Say pair him with Rondo?

Kamenetzky Brothers

Among many reasons I don’t see LaMarcus Aldridge coming to the Lakers? He’s not big on spotlight and media. POR market a good fit. AK

Byron Scott said Nick Young is “exactly what we need off the bench” with the Lakers undefeated since his return. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-on…

There can be a big-grinning, fun-loving teammate Kobe loves. My column on @NickSwagyPYoung, not @Dwight Howard, ICYMI: bleacherreport.com/articles/22743…

If you missed this after the win last night, Kobe has a goal for Nick Young this season: Win Sixth Man of the Year. lakersnation.com/kobe-bryants-g…

Kamenetzky Brothers

Which is one extra year. C’mon, you can’t be this delusional. AK RT @aphillip712: he signed a two year deal to play in Charlotte. Really?

Kamenetzky Brothers

It’s a big deal to the player, though. AK RT @aphillip712: That is not a major dif when Kobe's contract comes off the books after 2nd year.

Kamenetzky Brothers

They aren’t winning “b/c” of anybody. Three wins in all. AK RT @TheArmoTrader: LA hasn't been winning b/c of Young. It's ALL Ed Davis, Hill.

Deprived of Kobe v. Dwight, Wes Johnson v. Harden became the key matchup last night. You'd never believe who won. bit.ly/1p3g8k0

Kamenetzky Brothers

“Just" need to? AK RT @OAKLEAF24: Lakers just need to finish w/2nd worst record & they'll get top 5 pick. Lottery is only based on top 3.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Granted, if the Lakers continue mostly losing, the goal may BECOME bottom-five tanking. But that's a different story. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

If the goal truly is bottom-five tanking, you don't bring back a guy like Nick Young, who's capable of taking a game over. Too risky. AK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Last night's win, BTW, is why I don't buy "Lakers stealth tanking." Unless it's YOLO tank mode like Philly, hard to bank on losses. AK

So Dwight ended up being a late scratch. He's getting it checked at doctor this morning.

Ramona Shelburne

Word on Dwight Howard's knee injury: He mentioned it at shootaround but thought he'd be able to play. It didn't feel right pregame (cont'd)

Kamenetzky Brothers

MT@Baxter Holmes: Nick Young defines "swag": "I leave a presence. I'm like Michael Jackson, Prince, all those other guys."

Kevin Ding

Nick Young likes his fun, but he's far from Dwight Howard in Kobe's eyes. My column from Houston: bleacherreport.com/articles/22743…

Kobe can play nice now but he meant what he said about Dwight. For whatever it's worth, a lot of people agree with him.

Mike Trudell

We're cool - he's great. Honestly, everyone likes him. Everyone. RT @TheRealJoserr: what's your relationship like with @NickSwagyPYoung

Mike Trudell

Probably Kobe. Or B Scott. Def. not Swaggy. RT @AnthonyIrwinNBA: who from in and around organization would do best in a zombie apocalypse?

Mike Trudell

Year 19 in the NBA, I think he's a machine. RT @Yours_truly24: How's are Kobe's legs after playing close to 80 min. on back to back nights?

Mike Trudell

All of it. I don't even try to get food when he's in line. RT @Maxwheeler13: @Mike Trudell how much food has @John Ireland consumed so far?!?

Mike Trudell

Not really, I look to @AGMLA and @PintoLakers for that (they sit in front of me) RT @ibeo: has any of swaggy's swag rubbed off on you?

Just a numbers game with Young/Kobe/Lin/Price all healthy. RT @CB_1019: @Mike Trudell why clarkson hasn't been getting no PR??

Bill Oram

Bryant: "You try to be as conscious as possible to the fact that kids are watching and things like that. But it’s hard.”

Kobe said unfiltered trash talk is more visible in digital age. Sort of interesting issue. "Everybody has a camera." ...

No real news on Randle just yet, sorry. RT @MannyRock21: @Mike Trudell Hows the progress with Julius Randle?

It's always in the locker room… RT @JOPO363: @Mike Trudell is kobe giving the team his new sports drink?

Mike Trudell

I do. Different team w/2 legit scoring threats. RT @_CallMeBreezy_: @Mike Trudell Do you think the Swaggy P effect is really working?

Mike Trudell

I certainly think so. RT @Tommy_A7: @Mike Trudell Will Nick Young's good start continue off the bench? #fantasylife

Mike Trudell

I think Henry's still working his way fully back. RT @DKBDolo: why has Scott shortened the rotation? Seems like Henry would play more

Mike Trudell

Kobe's said for years how much he likes and respects Dirk. RT @ManWithNoName__: @Mike Trudell How does KB feel about Dirks millstones.

Mike Trudell

He's fun. All folks around the team in a better mood when he's in the mix. #swag RT @JohnnyNBA: @Mike Trudell How about that Swaggy?

Gary Lee

Today was a good day.

Mike Trudell

I can take a few Lakers questions before the team takes off from Houston for Dallas if you got 'em.

Jeremy Lin

Gutsy team win!! Thanks @Houston Rockets for the classy video...good seeing everyone back at the TC!

Kevin Ding

Swag, according to @NickSwagyPYoung: "I leave a presence. I'm like Michael Jackson, Prince, all those other guys."

Bill Oram

Kobe called Dwight "soft" in Oct., but doesn't think Durant truly thinks Howard is, ahem, a "pussy." Called it "a heat of the moment thing."

Beton Duran

LAL expect Wayne Ellington to return to the team in advance of Friday’s game in Dallas. Thoughts have been w/him as he tends to his family.

Basically, Swaggy and Hill make fun of each other for 4+ minutes straight while I try to mediate/instigate and move the microphone around.

Kevin Ding

Given that Kobe has called me a p---y before, this is good to know. ;)

The @NickSwagyPYoung + Jordan Hill postgame banter is worth your time on @TWCSportsNet. Check online or watch replay on Access SportsNet.

Kobe: “When you get in argument with somebody, you'll say things out of frustration and out of anger that you really don't mean."

Mad Dog ALL DAY! "@beychua: Dance off @John Ireland vs @Mark Madsen who would win?"

Does Kobe feel Dwight is a p---y? "No, I don't feel that way," Kobe said. "I don't think Kevin (Durant) does either."

21-58 from Kobe, Young, and Boozer, and the Lakers win. Wouldn't have guessed that. BK
