The Lakers (17-32) have a chance to win two in a row on Friday night when they visit the Philadelphia 76ers (15-35). Injuries have decimated the Lakers, who have won only four games in 2014. The 76ers have struggled as well, dropping 14 of their last 17. The Lakers will play without four of their top six scorers with Kobe Bryant (knee), Pau Gasol (groin), Nick Young (knee) and Xavier Henry (knee) missing the game because of injuries. Jodie Meeks could be a game-time decision after injuring an ankle on Wednesday.

Micheal Ray Richardson, a former NBA All-Star guard, said today that he has decided to stay with his Italian basketball team rather than accept an offer from the Philadelphia 76ers. "I'm going to stay," Richardson said after talks with Paolo Gualandi, president of Knorr Bologna. "Everything is OK now. I'm happy and they're happy." A team statement said Richardson and Gualandi "reached an accord of total satisfaction for both sides."

Charles Barkley says the NBA world has been divided into a list of good guys and bad guys. Magic, Michael and Larry are on the good-guy list. He is on the bad-guy list. Barkley can't be talked out of this argument. Other superstars say the politically correct thing. Barkley says the things nobody else has the nerve to, things that cause teammates to cringe, officials to call technical fouls and reporters to delete the expletives.

Reporting from Philadelphia — They are a special duo in their own right. Reggie Evans and Kenyon Martin did all the little things that helped the Clippers defeat the Philadelphia 76ers, 78-77, Friday night. Evans had 10 rebounds, half of them offensive. He didn't score, but he played with energy and hustled throughout his 19 minutes. Martin had seven rebounds, one blocked shot and three points, and he played good defense at power forward and when he was switched over to small forward.

These could be Royce White's final NBA stats: two teams, zero minutes played. In what may go down as one of the saddest stories involving a first-round draft pick not named Len Bias, White has been waived by the Philadelphia 76ers after playing in five exhibition games. His release comes after never having played for the Houston Rockets, the team that selected him 16th overall in the 2012 draft and later traded him to the 76ers following a season that included a suspension and a stint in the Development League.

If the Philadelphia 76ers are willing, the Lakers might have a way under the luxury tax and, more important, the repeater tax. The league currently levies a progressive tax that penalizes teams for every $5 million they spend on salary over the threshold of $71.7 million. The repeater tax, which won't start until the 2014-15 season, adds a dollar-for-dollar tax in addition to the progressive tax.  A $90-million roster at the current threshold would cost a team $39.3 million (progressive)

The top plays from the NBA's All-Star game invariably repeated themselves in the boy's front yard every year. As a preteen he would throw the ball off the backboard and dunk it, pretending to be Tracy McGrady. So what if the goal was only 7 feet and sometimes the kid's more athletic friends would execute the moves better than he did? He wasn't going to let anyone tell him he couldn't live his immeasurable dream. More than a decade later, Jrue Holiday will head to Houston perfectly content to be himself.

  There may be no compromise short of a roster overhaul that can save a divided Lakers Nation from its biggest worry heading into 2013. You know, the physical cliff. The Lakers are Paleolithic by NBA standards, with an average age of 28.4. Three of their starters are already in need of retirement-benefits advisors: Pau Gasol is 32, Kobe Bryant is 34 and Steve Nash turns 39 next month. With advancing age come not only wear-and-tear injuries (see Gasol's knees, assorted Bryant body parts)

- Andrew Bynum has some advice for Dwight Howard. Be patient with Kobe Bryant. "I think Dwight's a great player, but he's going to have to get accustomed to playing with Kobe, obviously, and not touching the ball every single play," Bynum said Sunday before the Lakers beat Philadelphia, 111-98. Bynum said Bryant helped him "tremendously" earlier in his career, but the 7-footer wanted the ball often in the post as he gradually improved as a player. It didn't always happen. "Later I thought I was able to get the ball more and do more things with the ball, so I could definitely see how at the end it could stunt growth," Bynum said.
