Bill Oram

Everybody good on the Lakers injury update or do I need to go over it again? Ahh, hell, here we go...

Gary Lee

Byron Scott knows the Lakers are in the West, but thinks they would make the playoffs in the East via @DanDuangdao. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-be…

Alan Hahn

Somehow @MichaelRapaport got footage of Willis Reed's fight with the Lakers. Wait until you see it. He mows down the entire bench.

Joe Freeman

... (cont) the starter's minutes will be scaled back for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers. Stotts said pregame he was still finalizing plan.

Amin Elhassan

Henry gets Flea and Phil Jackson in his mentions. I get L-Dawg and the kid who guarantees the Lakers will play championship basketball.

Mike Trudell

2/2: You’re in the very capable hands of @Los Angeles Lakers during games for Lakers.com, and @jaimemaggio filling in on @TWCSportsNet.

Monte Poole

Can we all,get with the program? There is only 1 Big Game James. Worthy, from the Showtime-era Lakers. Come on, people. #WorldSeries

Jovan Buha

I'm filling in for @Baxter Holmes tonight and covering Lakers-Suns, which means I'm the sacrificial lamb dealing with Kobe's response.

Bill Reiter

Jumping on with @PetrosAndMoney at 5:30 PST to talk Kobe, Lakers and my new show on @AM570RADIO starting Nov. 3.

Janis Carr

Check out @Yannis Koutroupis's piece, in which he defends Kobe Bryant from claims that he solely caused the Lakers' downfall: basketballinsiders.com/nba-pm-is-that…

If you missed this yesterday, the Lakers waived Keith Appling and Jeremy Tyler — cutting the roster down to 17. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-te…

Bill Oram

Kobe favorite Steve Blake won't make trip with Blazers for Wednesday's game vs. Lakers. (via @blazerfreeman) oregonlive.com/blazers/index.…

Tony Jones

Asked about Sunday and the second half meltdown against the Lakers, Snyder said that the remedy for that lineup is getting older

Roland Lazenby

As Jerry West told me, the Lakers are a franchise to print money. Right now Jim Buss is just printing 20s. Imagine if he had a team.

Roland Lazenby

I predict both Kobe and ESPN will survive this urine-filled water gun fight. But the Lakers? I'm not so sure.

Roland Lazenby

Lakers dueling factions make for strange stuff. The Kobe attack smacks of that. Folks are trying to duck responsibility for the coming storm

Roland Lazenby

Wow. ESPN's got a full court press to trash Kobe+his contract. Depicts Jim Buss and his Lakers as victims of Kobe's ruthlessness. Great PR

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards announce they will wear alternate blue unis every Weds road game and at home Dec 3 vs. Lakers and March 25 vs. Pacers.

ICYMI: Lakers Kobe Bryant on mentoring rookie Julius Randle: “It means he can’t [bleep] it up” bit.ly/1yfis7x

Flavio Tranquillo

Is Kobe the reason for the Lakers' downfall? espn.go.com/espn/feature/s…

Sean Highkin

The notion that the Lakers were "rattled" by Ramon Sessions leaving proves my theory that @TheWagofMutombo is their shadow GM.

Kamenetzky Brothers

They did have little success pre-Kobe. AK RT @jen_villar: @Los Angeles Lakers wouldn't be Lakers without Kobe being himself. Best work ethic ever

Gary Lee

Paul George responded to ESPN’s report about being “turned off” to sign with the Lakers because of Kobe Bryant. lakersnation.com/lakers-rumors-…

Eric Pincus

Lakers' Julius Randle can take hard knocks, wants to dish some out (with @Mike Bresnahan ) latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Kamenetzky Brothers

Dude… Pau. AK RT @Dre_Dynasty6:To be honest, Kobe never really needed star FAs. Look at 2009 Lakers. Great role players, but no other stars.

Eric Pincus

Hasn't mattered in recent games - but Steve Nash still listed as the Lakers' probable starter for Suns on Tuesday

Eric Pincus

One more point - Lakers also lost a true visionary in Dr. Buss - turn of the Lakers has to be linked to that on some level

Eric Pincus

I do know that Dwight Howard bristled at the Lakers coming out early saying D'Antoni would be back - taking a hard stance there

Eric Pincus

Also - worth noting the new collective bargaining agreement changed how the Lakers can operate - some difficulty adapting

Sean Highkin

How about the Lakers just suspend operations like Chivas USA until they're actually good again so we can talk about something else

Eric Pincus

I'm not pointing the finger at Stern - I'm just saying - can that be omitted as part of the story of the Lakers turn for the worse?

Eric Pincus

David Stern derailed the Lakers makes a lot more sense in how the CP3 veto came about - can that be left out of argument of what happened?

Eric Pincus

Last I had heard from Sessions is that when he opted out, he was surprised the Lakers didn't call him

Sean Highkin

How could Paul George have gone to the Lakers even if he wanted to, without signing the qualifying offer? What am I missing?

Gary Lee

Lakers announced they have waived Keith Appling and Jeremy Tyler. The roster is now down to 17 via @Ryan Ward. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-te…

Ben Bolch

Well-connected analytics guru told me Lakers are only NBA team acting like they don't know his company exists. Time to move out of 1985.

Mark Medina

Lakers waive Keith Appling, Jeremy Tyler bit.ly/1ycn12D

Eric Pincus

Lakers waive Jeremy Tyler, Keith Appling latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

The Lakers have now announced - what I previously reported - Appling and Tyler waived
