Who you looking at, old-timer? Though we're not sure if the Lakers have to be rebuilt, reconfigured or merely revived, this season is like a long-running western in which they can't get a sarsaparilla at the local saloon without being called out by attitudinal post-adolescents or grudge-bearing codgers. Happily for the defending champs, spring is a ways off, because the post-adolescents and codgers are shooting them full of holes. Not that coach Phil Jackson is worried.

The Lakers went into the season as the country's top-ranked team, and anything short of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship would have been a disappointment. Shriver, in his 35th season, had a senior-laden team that was driven by last year's difficult loss to Loyola in the title game, which spoiled a potential perfect season. The Lakers' response was an 18-0 record that produced the program's 10th league title. It was Shriver's sixth league championship as head coach and third undefeated season - the last coming in 2006 - and he now has a 490-135 career record.

The Lakers are the NBA's most valuable team, and 12 franchises lost money in the 2008-09 season, according to Forbes magazine. In its annual listing of the value of NBA franchises, Forbes finds the Lakers to be worth $607 million, up 4 percent for the league champions. Second are the Knicks at $586 million, but that is a 4 percent drop. The Knicks led the rankings the four previous seasons. The Bulls ($511 million), Pistons ($479 million) and Cavaliers ($476 million) round out the top five.

Kobe, Phil make it work K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Carmelo Anthony would make any team he plays for better because the NBA is all about talent and creating matchup problems. In both departments, Anthony succeeds. And don't fret about Anthony and Kobe Bryant coexisting: Great players figure it out. Furthermore, Phil Jackson is a master at meshing talent, although how Anthony would fit in the triangle offense is a question mark. Anthony is one of the game's elite scorers, and the Lakers have enough size to overcome the loss of Andrew Bynum, though most reports state this is all a fantasy because the Lakers aren't parting with Bynum.

It's too soon to tell Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Who knows? We haven't seen the real Lakers yet. This is not LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh working through their growing pains during a 9-8 Heat start to the 2010-11 season. This is a Lakers team that has yet to play a single game intact under the D'Antoni system. For now there is nothing but chaos, chaos exacerbated by Pau Gasol's knee issues. Only when Kobe Brant, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard and Steve Nash are together on the court, playing in whatever style D'Antoni is supposed to be delivering, can we appreciate the level of desperation.

Bryant isn't himself Mark Heisler Los Angeles Times No. At least not in their present version, with Kobe Bryant less of a factor than he has been since he became a starter in 1999 at 21. For all the controversy constantly whirling around him, Bryant's greatness has been the one thing the Lakers always could count on. He pulled off so many miracles, they seemed commonplace, like last spring's 14-point fourth quarter in...

To title behind Howard Baxter Holmes Los Angeles Times The Lakers and Celtics have been knotted at 17 championships each, but Dwight Howard will lead the tiebreaking charge. Yes, Virginia, Kobe Bryant will have as many rings — six — as Michael Jordan. Oh, there's a season to be played? Semantics. Howard's back will be fine and the Lakers will roll through the West before meeting the Heat for it all. And there, you won't see LeBron James and company in the paint nearly as much as they are accustomed.

It's a hard world to get a break in when two-time defending champions don't have their own ESPN "microsite," like Some People. If no one else cares, the Lakers are excited about the coming 2010-11 season. Oh, it already started? Those last six games were real? It's quiet around the Lakers, now in no-drama mode, just as I foresaw. Too quiet. Of course, I foresaw it three seasons ago, when the arrival of Pau Gasol, an effortless fit with Kobe Bryant, seemed to herald a new harmonious age. Instead, after strolling through the 2008 postseason — at least until the Finals, where the Celtics smoked them — the Lakers took back-to-back roller-coaster rides to win their 2009 and 2010 titles.

There was excitement and satisfaction and also a big sense of relief for the No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team Friday at Towson's Johnny Unitas Stadium, an understandable mixed bag of emotions. Before that was a continuation of the excellent play the Lakers displayed all season as they overpowered No. 2 St. Paul's, 17-11, to claim the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship and complete an 18-0 season. It's the 10th league championship and fourth in the MIAA for Boys' Latin, which was the league's last team to enjoy a perfect season when it went 21-0 in 2006.

These are exhilarating, and, truthfully, scary times for fans of the Boys' Latin School varsity lacrosse team with just one game remaining -  May 16, against archrival St. Paul's School in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference final.  Up to now, the Lakers' season has been pretty much perfect. They're the No. 1 team in the metropolitan area, according to The Baltimore Sun, and are also No. 1 nationally in the most recent Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse rankings.

On Tuesday, the No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team took time to savor another impressive accomplishment. Immediately after comfortably defeating their biggest rival, No. 2 St. Paul's, by an 18-12 score on Senior Day, the Lakers celebrated with the student section on their home field. Not only did the win clinch the top seed in the upcoming Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs, it marked a second straight season the team plowed through its demanding regular season with a perfect record, this time finishing 16-0.

The No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team was mostly kept in check during the first half against determined McDonogh on Tuesday. And then things got even worse in the third quarter, as its high-powered attack was kept scoreless and the No. 4 Eagles led by two goals going into the fourth. How did the undefeated Lakers respond? Impressively. Boys' Latin scored four straight goals to start the pivotal fourth quarter and after host McDonogh pulled within one, the Lakers scored three more in a row to pull out an 11-8 win in Owings Mills.

A number of things could have slowed down the Boys' Latin lacrosse team on Tuesday, first and foremost a formidable opponent in Calvert Hall. There also was a cold, steady rain that was accompanied by high winds, but the No. 1 Lakers wouldn't be deterred. Patrick Spencer scored four goals, Keegan O'Connor scored three and Shack Stanwick dished out four assists while goalie Jack Pezzulla made timely saves early to enable Boys' Latin to come away with a 12-5 home win over the No. 6 Cardinals.

The difference between the area's No. 1 team, Boys' Latin, and the state's consensus top public school team, Hereford, turned out to be fairly significant on Thursday. The Lakers, also ranked No. 1 nationally, was better in every phase and got a three-goal, eight-assist performance from All-Metro first-team senior attackman Shack Stanwick, seven goals from senior Colin Chell and a dominating effort from senior faceoff specialist Hunter Moreland to come away with a 14-5 win over the host Bulls.

Kobe Bryant will play limited minutes in the Lakers' two European preseason games as he rests his knee following offseason surgery, coach Phil Jackson said Saturday. The NBA champion Lakers will take on the Timberwolves in a sold-out game Monday night at London's O2 Arena, then play FC Barcelona in the Spanish city on Oct. 7. "He's not going to play a whole lot," Jackson said. "His playing time will be limited, maybe 6-7 minutes in his first run, then we'll see if he can play another set. "He's not doing anything too explosive, but he looked good and shot the ball well.

Remember the Heat routing the Lakers in Los Angeles on Christmas? Remember Kobe Bryant promising to kick rear ends at practice, announcing: "You don't just have two rings and say we're satisfied with what we've got. … I'm not rolling with that.

Remember the Celtics coming into the Staples Center on Jan. 30 and rocking the Lakers' world too, by which time half the local talk-show hosts were on medication?

For the first three-plus quarters of Saturday's Baltimore City Division I boys basketball championship game, scrappy Lake Clifton was doing all the little things a little bit better against No. 1 and undefeated City. And then, City senior guards Kamau Stokes and Omari George had seen enough. First it was Stokes who hit a big 3-pointer. Then it was George's turn. He scrapped for an offensive rebound, got fouled and made two free throws. The next possession George did the same, this time making the follow shot and converting a three-point play.
