Life Lessons From Coach K and Jay Williams
Huffington Post Sports - almost 2 years
(Photo used with permission from Craig Jones/Getty Images Sport/Getty Images) It's not every day you get to hear what really happens on the court -- as the final seconds tick down to a NCAA national championship. But that's exactly what happened to me on Friday when I had a chance to chat with Duke legend Jay Williams -- about his personal experience in the 2001 championship game against Arizona. "The clock was ticking down," Williams told me. "And we knew we were about to win. But it's Chris Duhon that I remember most." Duhon, his teammate, motioned to Williams to get his attention. Williams remembers thinking, "what's going on?" "Your dream," Duhan told him. "Remember to throw the ball in the air." ***** At the beginning of basketball season, Duke's head coach Mike Krzyzewski had every member of the team stand in front of each other and present their success outlook -- a twist on today's popular vision boards. As Williams tells the story, several guys talked ab ...

Don't Forget About LeBron
Huffington Post - over 3 years
What's next isn't always what's best and while the past may seem like a simpler time with nonreplicable stars and feats, don't ignore what may happen 100 times this NBA season. LeBron. He's bigger than Karl Malone and runs the floor like Mario Lemieux cut through the ice. Remember, Mario was the same 6'4" as Dwyane Wade and had 15 pounds on one of the best shooting guards of all-time. The first time I saw LeBron in person was the day before the 2003 NBA Draft in the Westin Times Square at the rookie photo shoot and media availability. He was 18. I was 21. I was getting carded and he was signing cards. The next night, I politely told Donald Trump that he was mistaken when identifying Maverick Carter as LeBron to the woman on his arm. Trump had stopped up in the Theater before the Neil Young show that night at the Garden and the Rockin' in the Free World encore likely hit around the time the Bulls took Matt Bonner 45th overall and then traded him to Toronto for a 2nd round pick in ' ...

Can't Buy A Championship
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
The days where the Lakers could vastly rely on their poker chips to build championship contending teams will become a distant memory this offseason. The Lakers can offer Dwight Howard the most money of any NBA team, a five-year deal worth $118 million as opposed to a four-year deal worth $87.6 million for everyone else. But that may not convince Howard he would look best in purple and gold once he becomes an unrestricted free agent today at 9 p.m. The Lakers have a 25-year, $5 billion deal with Time Warner Cable that paid the team around $120 million in the first year, a partnership Lakers president Jeanie Buss said "exceeded beyond our wildest expectations." That lucrative contract, however, won't convince the Lakers to go on a shopping spree this offseason for reasons beyond giving the NBA about $50 million of those earnings in revenue sharing. More punitive luxury taxes for high-spending teams will kick in during the 2014 offseason when a crop of superstars such as Le ...

Lakers' Injuries Mount
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Steve Nash needed three injections for pain relief on the Los Angeles Lakers' day off. He's still more likely to play in Game 3 on Friday night than Steve Blake or Jodie Meeks. And just in case anybody forgot, Kobe Bryant is at home in a walking boot, his season over. Late in a season featuring just about every tribulation imaginable, the Lakers have almost no healthy guards – never mind anybody who could keep up with Tony Parker. If they can't cover the gaping holes in their backcourt and figure out how to slow the San Antonio Spurs, the Lakers' tumultuous season probably won't extend past the weekend. Los Angeles still has two star big men, but even Dwight Howard realizes this patchwork roster is getting awfully flimsy. He won't use it as an excuse for whatever happens after the Spurs took firm control of the series in Texas. "We have total confidence that we can come back and win this series," Howard said after a light practice at ...

Kobe's 'Closed-Door Meeting'
Huffington Post - about 4 years
LOS ANGELES -- Airing things out among themselves had the desired effect for the Los Angeles Lakers. Metta World Peace hit five 3-pointers on his way to scoring 17 points and the Lakers pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Utah Jazz 102-84 on Friday night, snapping a four-game skid. Coming off an 0-3 road trip during which players confronted each other last Wednesday in Memphis, the Lakers got balanced scoring and better team defense that helped them beat the Jazz for the first time in three meetings this season. Kobe Bryant suggested "our closed-door meeting that everyone seems to know about" had something to do with the victory. "It's a relief, especially against a team that's handled us pretty well," he said. "We made shots and that makes the game a lot easier. It's not about showing we've turned the corner. It's about doing it." Derrick Favors led the Jazz with 14 points off the bench. Fellow reserve Gordon Hayward scored 13 and Al Jefferson ...

Lakers Lose, Again

LOS ANGELES -- Ty Lawson had 21 points and 10 assists, Danilo Gallinari scored 20 points and hit a big 3-pointer with 13.8 seconds left, and the Denver Nuggets beat the struggling Los Angeles Lakers 112-105 Sunday night for their fifth win in seven games. JaVale McGee scored 17 points for the Nuggets, who showed no signs of weariness after a home win over Utah one night earlier. Despite two last-minute 3-pointers by Kobe Bryant, Denver maintained a lead throughout the fourth quarter of its second win in 12 days over the Lakers. Bryant scored 29 points and Dwight Howard had 14 points and a career high-tying 26 rebounds for the Lakers, who have lost three straight and four of five. Los Angeles' star-studded roster dropped to 15-18 with another mediocre performance featuring 18 turnovers, intermittent defense and little structured offense down the stretch. Denver beat the Lakers at Staples Center for just the fifth time in 26 meetings. The Nuggets hung on to th ...

Steve Blake's extended absence points out Lakers' lack of depth

Lakers probably will stick with Darius Morris and Chris Duhon as they await return of Steve Nash, as Blake sets surgery and may not play again until February. Nash won't be back during three-game trip. Once thought to have too many point guards, the Lakers suddenly could use at least one high-quality backup.

Kings vs. Lakers: Five things to watch
The Sacramento Bee - over 4 years
The Lakers are in town. That should be enough to inspire a spark out of the Kings tonight. The Kings usually play with energy - something they've lacked a lot this season - when they play the Lakers. But at some point the Kings have to execute to end their losing streak, which is at five games. Here are five things the Kings could try tonight to end their losing streak. 1. Hack-a-Howard: Lakers center Dwight Howard was 7 of 19 on free throws Tuesday night against Brooklyn. The Nets went to fouling Howard intentionally late, but still lost to the Lakers. 2. Attack from the point: The Kings are starting Darius Morris at point guard while Steve Nash and Steve Blake are out with injuries. Aaron Brooks, Jimmer Fredette and Isaiah Thomas have to be aggressive and test Morris. 3. Glass watch: The Lakers figure to have the advantage rebounding with Howard and Pau Gasol. The Kings can't make their job easier by taking bad shots that can be rebounded easily and lead to ...

LOS ANGELES -- Danny Green hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 9.3 seconds left, Tony Parker scored 19 points and the San Antonio Spurs beat Los Angeles 84-82 Tuesday night in the Lakers' first loss since firing coach Mike Brown. After Pau Gasol missed a 3-pointer, Tiago Splitter's hustle prevented the Lakers from controlling the rebound before the buzzer sounded on Los Angeles' first game since hiring Mike D'Antoni late Sunday night. Interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff ran the team for the third straight game. Tim Duncan had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, who improved the Western Conference's best record to 7-1 thanks to Green's third 3-pointer of the night. Kobe Bryant had 28 points and eight rebounds for the Lakers, who dropped to 3-5 after committing 17 turnovers on a poor shooting night. Dwight Howard had 13 points and 15 rebounds. The Lakers found another kind of drama in their first game since the club surprisingly bypassed 11-time NBA champion Phi ...

Steve Nash's MRI Results Are In
Huffington Post - over 4 years
LOS ANGELES -- Steve Nash has a small fracture in his left leg and will be out of the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup for at least another week. The Lakers announced the results of their point guard's MRI exam Saturday, throwing yet another complication into their dismaying start to the season. Nash got hurt in a collision with Damian Lillard on Wednesday night, bumping legs with the Portland rookie in the second quarter. The two-time NBA MVP attempted to keep playing in the second half, but quickly left the game again. Nash missed the Lakers' 105-95 loss to the Clippers on Friday night, dropping the Lakers to 0-3 for the first time in 34 years and just the fourth time in franchise history. The Lakers host Detroit on Sunday night. The Lakers initially announced Nash had simply bruised his leg, but the MRI exam revealed a small fracture on the head of his fibula. Such injuries vary widely in their severity, and the Lakers will re-evaluate Nash next weekend. Coa ...

2012 NBA Playoffs: Orlando Magic Team Preview
SB Nation - almost 5 years
Note: This post serves as a general playoff preview for the Orlando Magic, not a specific look at their forthcoming series against the Indiana Pacers. It's designed for the casual NBA fan who (soundly) decided to follow other teams during the regular season. - Ed. Orlando Magic Team Record: 37-29, third in the Southeast Division, sixth in the Eastern Conference How would you describe the Magic in the regular season? Up-and-down and ultimately disappointing. The Magic had to deal with the constant drama surrounding Dwight Howard, which was supposed to end when he made the surprise decision to waive his right to become a free agent in 2012. Instead, the drama continued when coach Stan Van Gundy confirmed to the media that Howard had asked team management to fire him. And then Howard hurt his back and missed the rest of the season. But more than the drama, Orlando just isn't as good a team as it used to be. Otis Smith's moves have robbed the Magic of their depth, a ...

    More Details Hide Details Duhon played a key role in the Bulls winning their first playoff series since the Michael Jordan era against the Miami Heat. The Bulls swept the Heat four games to zero. Duhon provided key minutes as the sixth man in the series against Miami, where he played more minutes because of the foul trouble Kirk Hinrich was plagued with throughout the series. After the Bulls fell in a 3–0 hole, a deficit no team has come back from in the NBA Playoffs, Duhon played solidly off the bench. He hit a key three-pointer in Game 4 that forced the lead to 23 points. In a relatively easy Game 5 win, Duhon scored 8 points off of 2 threes and a driving lay-up. The trade of Ben Wallace and Joe Smith to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Larry Hughes and Drew Gooden also caused a logjam in the backcourt. He eventually found his way back into the rotation and once again proved to be a solid floor general.
