Tweet of the Night: Metta World Peace

LAL_World Peace_Metta

Here’s an underrated statement for this season’s version of the Los Angeles Lakers: they have not been the luckiest of bunch in terms of injuries suffered, from top to bottom. This team was tagged as the undisputed best team in the league before playing a single game together. Obviously, that has been far from the case. It’s easy to say that the team simply hasn’t gelled – which is true – but they certainly would have been much better than what

SH Blog: Kyrie Irving could still return this season, Love considers shutting it down

Kyrie Irving 2

If you are a lottery team heading towards nowhere in particular as the season winds down, what do you do when your best player is due back from an injury?

After Friday’s dispiriting home loss to the Washington Wizards, Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni could not take it any longer. D’Antoni went on a wide-ranging rant against his team, targeting its lack of commitment and effort on both sides of the ball. He said the Lakers were “messing with the basketball gods” and called their championship aspirations “laughable.” Although D’Antoni mentioned no one by name, very few wearing the forum blue and gold appeared exempt.

Kobe Bryant
  There you have it, folks. After being diagnosed with a severely sprained ankle last week, Kobe Bryant is officially back in the lineup. Bryant actually tried to give it a go the very next game after injuring himself, but was taken out of the game after a rough first quarter against the Indiana Pacers.

SH Blog: Wall remains adamant about his worth as max player, Chris Paul calls out Clippers defense

John Wall

Not long ago, many wondered if John Wall could ever reclaim his reputation as the possible savior of the Washington Wizards – a burdening label immediately thrust upon him when he was drafted with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010-2011 NBA Draft. In fact, some openly wondered if he’s even worth building around. And when I say “not long ago”, I’m talking about just weeks ago.
