Lakers News & Rumors Recap: “Hollywood Nights” Coming Next Season

1236432_10151563158786006_1153453440_nI follow the Lakers’ Instagram account to feel like a really cool insider, especially when they share pictures of their new “Hollywood Nights” uniforms. The Lakers released a video via their Instagram account suggesting that the team will also be featuring a new black alternate jersey this season. It isn’t known when and where these will be worn, but some cool fashion choices are brewing. Keep is up L.A.!

During the “Kobe Up Close” special, Kobe Bryant said that Tracy McGrady, with his size and athleticism, was the guy who gave him the most problems. Bryant and McGrady were easily the two best wings in the NBA during the early 2000s. McGrady got caught this morning by TMZ at the airport and acknowledged Kobe’s compliment. Check out the video to see who he thought was the best player he ever played against.

LeBron James named his top three basketball players of all time, which are Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Julius Erving. Magic Johnson was not included.  However, when LeBron was prompted to list a fourth player, Johnson was #4. Unfortunately that wasn’t enough for the former Lakers player, and he took to Twitter to express his feelings.

“NBA Championship rings are all that matter; Jordan 6, Me 5, Bird 3, LeBron 2 and Dr. J 1.”

Yikes. Johnson is bit offended that he wasn’t included in James’ top three players of all time, and rightfully so. If you consider how great and accomplished Magic was during his career with the Lakers, he deserves a spot in the top three.

Today is Throwback Thursday, and LN is bringing you the first time Kobe hit a game-winning shot! Bryant has had a number of these over the time, but there is just something about number one. The clip is from the 2000 playoffs against the Phoenix Suns. This shot gave the Lakers a 2-0 series lead as they would eventually win the series 4-1 on their way to the first championship of the Kobe-Shaq era and also marked Kobe’s first game-winning jumper of his career. Check it out here.
