Nick Young throws the first pitch over the backstop at Dodger Stadium. The only surprise is that Young didn’t turn his back on the catcher, throw his arms in the air, and walk off the mound celebrating the pitch without watching where it went.

Steve Nash also expected to miss at least another four weeks.

Mike D’Antoni said the Lakers ride Kobe like Secretariat. Well Kobe’s going to be out for a while, so Pau Gasol decided to climb on Chris Paul’s back instead.

Imagine how different their history could have been if in 1922, the Red Sox had re-acquired Babe Ruth. There’s no way it would have taken 82 years before they won another championship. The gods of sport would have been appeased, and order would have been restored to the universe.
Laker Nation, rejoice. The Curse of the Farmbino has finally been lifted.

Metta World Peace got amnestied by the Lakers, but he’s taking it pretty well.

The Lakers are putting up billboards around LA encouraging Dwight Howard to re-sign with them, and promoting the hashtag #stayD12 on Twitter. How is that working out for them so far?



The #stayD12 replies range from “Good riddance, Dwight” to “Fire D’Antoni” to “Get rid of Dwight and fire D’Antoni, too.” Too bad they can’t just re-sign Andrew Bynum, but they’re capped out, and he’s not visiting teams until his bowling league’s playoffs are over anyway.

Congratulations to Dwight Howard on his third-team All-NBA selection! We knew he’d bring the hardware to Los Angeles!

NBA Playoffs throwback: Los Angeles Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs, 2004, Western Conference semifinals. 

One of the most incredible endings to a playoff game in NBA history. Kobe Bryant’s go-ahead shot is then answered by Tim Duncan’s fade away jumper that, if it had burned an extra .1 second, would have probably sealed the game for the Spurs. But it did not. Instead with .4 seconds left in the game, Derek Fisher’s prayer is answered.

A new chapter of an old rivalry begins in San Antonio on Sunday at 3:30pm EST on ABC.

I didn’t come up with Superman, I won’t get upset.

Celebrating his 52nd birthday today is Lakers legend and current Cavs coach Byron Scott. The 2008 NBA Coach of the Year won three titles with the “Showtime” Lakers of the 1980s and averaged 14.1 points per game for his career.

I will remember this game. I will remember that shot. He said he wasn’t trying to do it. You can look at the play and see it for yourself. I will take care of it later.
— Dwight Howard, complaining about David Lee’s elbow. This quote guarantees that there will be no retaliation in the teams’ next meeting, because Dwight Howard always does the opposite of what he says.
