Merry Christmas! The Los Angeles Lakers were center stage today, as they generally are on Christmas, this time battling the #1 team in the east, New York Knicks. After a dismal start to the season, the Lakers defeated the Knicks today, 100-94, yet as good as the game was what happened half way through the 1st QTR that dominated twitter! Chris Brown entered the Staples Center with Rihanna!

Yes! While the Lakers are the main attraction, Chrihanna (what there fans call the couple) took the spotlight! Now I know we can read so much into this, but for there first public appearance together, what better place than a Lakers game on Christmas Day, court side at the end of the Lakers bench!

They seem to actually be enjoying the game, and not phased by the attention at all! Rihanna was sporting the necklace Chris gave her over a month ago that she wore to her launch of her new fragrance Nude.

Why is this even news at this point? Well earlier this Christmas morning, Chris ex Kaerucche, decided to put a picture up on Instagram wearing nothing but a “Chris Brown Bathing Ape” T-shirt while sitting on the side of the bed. But as soon as the news hit that Rihanna & Chris were entering Staples Center, the picture was gone!

So as we all was waiting on Rihanna’s response to the pic via her own Instagram, she decided to allow the media to do it for her by entering the most watched game on Christmas Day! Boom!

Now does this mean they are an official couple? Who knows with these two! But I see Chris face is no longer hidden when he is with Rihanna. And the PDA was on full display. Is it for publicity? Honestly I say yes & no! Yes because they want to control what the public get to see vs the widespread stories of the media! And no because I believe they just want to be together and it be Nobody’s Business! I mean that can’t have beef when they know that video will be the most watched on YouTube for years lol. Can you imagine if they had put those 2 on kiss cam? SMH..pandemonium!

In other news doesn’t this kid look like he can belong to rapper The Game? Lol! Glad to see them take the time to take the pic with the kid either way.

Now watch as they leave 3 minutes before the end of the game, that was far from decided! So yep…they came, they conquered, & they upstaged the Lakers! Well except for the real fans like me! I was focused on the Lakers keeping the win streak alive.

She bad!!! The Laker sideline reporters kept speaking about how Ri had little boys going into puberty just looking at! She bad!! Man just let them live! They know the consequences of there actions, and if they willing to endure them, so be it!



Well I must say I am one happy LAKER fan right now. The Oklahoma City Thunder have just traded away their 6th man of the year, James Harden. Yep you read that right. Harden was up for a contract extension, that technically could have been revisited at the end of the season, but Sam Presti tried to get a deal done by the deadline of 10/31 offering James 4yrs, $53-54M.

First tell me why that’s not a good deal? James get’s paid, and he stays on a true contender?! He get’s traded to Houston, who will pay him a max deal believed to be $60M for 5yrs of service. Seriously, $6M is the difference here? This guy, along with Durant/Westbrook were the future for the OKC Thunder. I hope someone tells James that he has officially become the Joe Johnson of the NBA. He got his money, but he will be stuck at the bottom of the playoff pole, if he is there at all. Being a 6th man, & being THE MAN are two entirely different things. When you are keyed on night after night, with the role players he’s going to be a long 82 games. But hey, I’m a Lakers fan so I just say thank you!

As for OKC, I understand you got Kevin Martin, & Jeremy Lamb in the deal along with picks…but Kevin Martin hasn’t played a full 82 games since…well the beginning of his career. Yes he can score, but if he is not available for the playoffs what good will it do? And what about this chemistry everyone continues to talk about? People saying the Lakers will have problems this season because of possible chemistry issues, well please believe this is a totally different dynamic for this OKC team as well.

The NBA season officially begins 10/30. I pray that DirecTV comes to terms with Time Warner Sports Net, in order for those in California can get the Lakers channel, as for me, NBA League Pass all day.



Los Angeles Lakers center, Dwight Howard, sat down with Espn’s Ric Bucher for Sunday Conversation. Dwight speaks on his time in Orlando, what his biggest fear was, and what he thinks about being a part of the Lakers organization. Check it out.



Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade, sits down for the first time with Kietta (Real Talk W/Kietta) to tell her side of the story. We have all heard about the tumultuous battle that has ensued for the custody of Dwyane Wade & Siohvaughn Wade’s children. With so many accusations being thrown around siting that Siohvaughn was mentally unstable, among other things, Dwyane was given full custody of their 2 sons.

Now my only 2 cents concerning this(which amounts to nothing lol) was I do recall seeing pictures of Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union prior to him being officially divorced from Siohvaughn, and I am one that believes SEPARATED DOES NOT MEAN DIVORCED. But with that being said…you really don’t know who is telling the truth in the matter between Siohvaughn & Dwyane, but there is one person I definitely believe…Siohvaughn’s mother. I don’t think that lady would lie for her daughter or Dwyane simply because of her fear of God. Her relationship with HIM is far more important to her than what either of them is going through…hey I can just hear it in her voice.

Check out the interview below…



Oh my goodness. Mike Bresnahan of the LA Times is reporting that the Lakers are unwilling to give up Pau Gasol for Boston’s 25yr. old walking triple double, Rajon Rondo? I really hope that this is not true. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m one of the biggest Laker fans in the world and I love what Pau Gasol brings to our team, but we are talking about a guy in Rajon Rondo who has a Chris Paul type mindset on the court, and his hunger to win is always on 10. I’m not sure if that’s a good move for the Lakers not to explore this situation deeper. You have to give up something to get something, and unfortunately, Pau is the only “movable” piece we have.

The Lakers are unwilling to trade Pau Gasol for Rondo, making a deal with Boston unlikely before the trade deadline Thursday.

The only reason I’m okay with the trade of Pau Gasol for Rajon Rondo is simply because the offensive style the Lakers are now running calls for a point guard that’s on the highest level. Lebron James in this same offense was able to get to the finals with a pg named Mo Williams, so imagine Kobe, Andrew, and Rajon on the same team. That would definitely be an upgrade for Mike Brown’s chances to get back to the finals again.

It’s always tough to trade a player of Pau’s caliber, simply because of his dedication to the organization and the team. Also you know the Lakers don’t want to have another big “falling out” with a player, like with what happened with the Lamar Odom trade. I would not want to be Mitch Kupchak. What do you think LakerNation, is this a good decision by the Lakers to not trade Pau for Rondo? Will a lower level pg do this roster any justice, or should you go for the right now/future all in one trade?



The Lakers and Heat met up yesterday at the Staples Center for there 2nd of 2 matchups for the season. This time the outcome was very different. The Lakers who have only lost 2 games at home, made sure to keep it that way. The Miami Heat, who were without Chris Bosh, because of a death in his family, came into Staples after losing by 1 to the Utah Jazz. Where most criticized James again, for not being willing to take the last shot in the game, instead opting to pass to teammate Udonis Haslem.

Okay so first let me just say this, people get over it! Lebron James does not, and may not ever develop the killer instinct of Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant. Just allow him to be the new era Oscar Robertson of the league. We have never witnessed a specimen of his type when it comes to an ALL AROUND GAME. Now don’t get this twisted for me becoming a Lebron James fan, uh uh..won’t happen. LOL

Now, with that being said, shout out to Metta World Peace aka the artist formerly known as Ron Artest, who from the tip, had his sites set on making LJ work for every shot, point, assist he made. If you were paying attention, you would have seen that MWP has dropped some significant amount of weight since the beginning of the season, and his body finally looks toned, chisled, and ready to do work. It’s also evident by the fact that he has had 3 dunks in the past 3 games. To me he was the difference in this game. His stat line read, 17pts/4steals (the numbers that matter most to me). Check out what Ron said during a post game interview with NBA TV, as he made the Lakers Big 3, the big 4!

I could go on to talk about the great play of Andrew Bynum as well, but at this point, people should really be getting over this trade Bynum for Howard thing. It’s one thing that I can’t stand, is panting over a guy who does not want to be on your team. Howard is so afraid of the continual comparisons to Shaq, that he is willing to forfeit his possibility of becoming a champion right now, by playing with the best player in the world, Kobe Bryant. So if Brooklyn is where he wants to be, then so be it. We will see him in the finals, and take his candy one more time.
