Lakers news:

▷ Eddie Jordan reflects on Lakers’ season, offers insight

“Jordan’s words reopen old wounds and leave a bitter taste in my mouth, as I’m sure they do in yours. It makes us wonder if next season would actually be any different should the team stay together.”

▷ What the Atlanta Hawks could do in free agency to devastate Los Angeles

“This is all predicated on the idea that both Dwight Howard and Chris Paul are open to leaving their current situations with their respective teams in Los Angeles. While many aren’t anticipating either player to jump ship, both Los Angeles franchises have to be feeling the pressure and terrified at the possibility.”

▷ Making a case against the signing of Dwight Howard

“There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding Dwight Howard lately, and God help us we’re not even in the Conference Finals yet. Nevertheless, I’m going to hypocritically hop on the “O-M-G what’s going to happen with Howard” bandwagon and take a stab at one of the less popular opinions; that the Lakers should not sign him.”

Controversial NBA headline of the day:

A look back at Derrick Roses’s non-season for the Bulls

“Rose has spent many of his days since then participating in practice, watching his Bulls battle through the 2013 NBA playoffs while dressed in street clothes, eating Lifesavers on the bench, and perpetually leaving the door wide open for a postseason return.”

Did you know:

The 1947-48 Minneapolis Lakes won a championship their first year in the NBA, losing only two games in the playoffs – largely in part to the outstanding play of George Mikan.
