Kobe will finish exhibition play with averages of 19 points, 4 assists, 3 rebs, 1.7 steals in 26.7 mins. Also of note: shooting 39.6%.
Jordan Hill might sit Lakers exhibitions tonight in Ontario and maybe Friday in Vegas. He has a strained neck.
Kobe Bryant will not play the Lakers' last two exhibition games. He's going to rest. Opener is next Tuesday vs. Houston.
I stand corrected, anonymous GM I know assume (or hope) is David Griffin. My bad. AK
I mean, I love Pau, and think he’s a quality pickup for the Bulls. But someone is overthinking this. AK
Kobe's numbers over the last three games are pretty much what I'd expect during the regular season.
If Kobe does play tonight, I'm interested to see how much lift he has on his jumpers on the second night of a back-to-back.
Dan Haren underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left non-throwing shoulder today. He's expected to be ready at the start of Spring Training.
Damn you, Ronaldo. Incredible goal.
My last tweet was about the best shooting guard in the NBA according to GMs, but you know, 140 characters.
In regards to the Kobe talk today, ESPN and Sportscenter had a slow news day. Decided to go with a non-story. You can tell when they reach.
Lakers/Suns replaying in press room. Game was tied at 6-6. We should have gone straight to overtime right then and there.
Jeter never made a "second day" story. Never added logs to a fire. Kobe tries the same, but can't help say something interesting
Wesley Johnson, who missed game-winning FTs, said Kobe encouraged him by saying he's missed, "thousands." 1,836, actually, counting playoffs
“It’s just one of those … stretches,” Matt Barnes said, adding an expletive for emphasis.
“Obviously, they don’t know his name,” Doc Rivers said of Jared Cunningham. “He got mauled three or four times and there was no call.
Doc Rivers on Matt Barnes' shot: "Once you start thinking about it, it’s hard and he’ll get through it. We have a week to get him right."
Matt Barnes: "My thing on this team is to be able to play defense and rebound and make hustle plays. My shot will eventually come."
Matt Barnes: "I’m pressing mentally. I think that’s it more than anything. I haven’t changed anything."
Kobe didn't address specifics of ESPN Mag piece, but said, "It's not the first one, won't be the last one. ... I just kind of roll with it."
Maybe it's just me, but I'm starting to get the feeling "Sons of Anarchy" isn't building up to a heart-warming ending. AK
Kobe Bryant on Wes’ missed free throws: “I think it was good for him to miss them.”
Waiting in Honda Center locker room waiting for Kobe to talk. Last time we were here he called ESPN "a bunch of idiots." And now Take 2...
Jason Kapono is still in the NBA???
Jeremy Lin on going up against I. Thomas: “it was a great test. It does get quicker than that”
Byron on Kobe’s second half performance: “Tells me his legs are coming back”
Byron Scott told the team: “we’re close.”
Regular season can't start fast enough for Matt Barnes, who is now shooting 3/31 (9.7%) and 1/18 (5.6%) on threes.
You had one job, Wes. http://t.co/wKfXoFO85t
Game time. Suns win, 114-108
The second three by Wes stands. 109-108, Suns. 44.9 left.
Wes’ last shot will be reviewed.
Wes out there trying to redeem himself. Two straight 3s from the SF. Lakers down one with 44.9 left in the game. 109-108
I. Thomas insists on looking at Floyd Mayweather after every basket. Got a little Reggie Miller-Spike Lee action going.
Kobe is done for the night with Lakers trailing 105-102 with less than two minutes left in overtime.
Gerald Green was actually waived by the Lakers a few years back. LA actually signed Wes Johnson, twice. Bad move, bruh.
Wes Johnson makes a three AFTER PJ Tucker fouls Kobe. Of course.
Kobe nails a jumper. Game tied. 96 apiece
Wes Johnson not helping matters in OT. Fouls Gerald Green. Two shots.
Because Wes Johnson. http://t.co/rXGDOcNedz
Lakers: Price, Kobe, Wes, Boozer and Hill to start OT.
Jeremy Lin fouled out meaning Ronnie Price will likely be running the point in OT.
OVERTIME. Thomas hits the game-tying bucket and then stares at Floyd Mayweather courtside.
Overtime in Anaheim. The only good thing about that is that it rhymes.
GIVE THE BALL TO KOBE, CHIEF KEEF.
THAT WAS NOT A FOUL.
Lin fouls I. Thomas. Fouls out of the game. Ellington in for Lin.
Ronnie Price checked in for Carlos Boozer. Lakers: Price, Lin, Kobe, Wes and Hill
Kobe hits both free throws. Lakers up three, 94-91. 12.8 left.
