Robert Horry laid into former teammate Kobe Bryant while speaking at the ninth Lakers All-Access event at Staples Center. "[When] Kobe is on the weak side, he needs to start paying attention to where the ball is and not be flying around, thinking he's some stealth bomber where he can get steals nonstop," said Horry. The Lakers (17-21) have struggled this season as a team to play defense, and Horry put a sizable share of the blame on Bryant. "That's the only reason you won two games, you solved the problem," continued Horry, speaking of Bryant's move to covering point guards Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Former Lakers star Robert K. Horry was in a traffic collision Tuesday evening in South L.A. with a motorcyclist that ended with the biker being taken to a hospital with what were described as moderate injuries. Horry, 43, was driving a 2014 Infiniti east on the 105 Freeway west of Normandie Avenue in the Athens neighborhood about 5:10 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. Horry was in the No.1 lane in "heavy traffic" and the motorcyclist, identified as 44-year-old Xerxes M. Baldonasa of Long Beach, was moving in the same direction and was driving between two sets of double yellow lines that separate the carpool lane and the No. 1 lane "approaching the left rear" of Horry's vehicle, the CHP said.

Before Kobe Bryant spoke Thursday night at "Kobe Up Close Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel," Robert Horry took the stage. "[Bryant] has all kinds of accolades, all kinds of praise going, but he's still working hard every day," Horry said. "It makes you want to work hard. That's what guys realize when they come to the Lakers organization. " Bryant and Horry won three rings together with the Lakers (2000-02) but the former teammates didn't always see eye to eye. Bryant's intensity in practice and even in games could be a little much for a seasoned veteran like Horry.

Just another day at Lakers practice, where Kobe Bryant defended the franchise's reputation, Dwight Howard fought off the "he's-having-too-much-fun" criticism from Robert Horry and the Lakers continued to hope another statement victory was on the way. Last things first, they'll get another chance Thursday against Miami after accruing all of … two? ... three? ... declarative victories this season - at Golden State, home against New York (on Christmas), and maybe/perhaps/possibly at home against Brooklyn in November (even though the Nets fired their coach recently because of poor performance)

Robert Horry is being listed as doubtful tonight at Dallas, one game after he made his first start as a Laker only to leave in the fourth quarter because of a sprained left ankle. Horry, injured when he landed on the foot of Seattle's Detlef Schrempf with 7:56 remaining in the fourth quarter Sunday, did not practice Monday. He will be examined again today, but it appears likely he will sit out and Jerome Kersey will temporarily return to the opening lineup at small forward.

Dwight Howard stood in the Lakers' locker room before the Miami game with an arm around his girlfriend. "Judy," he said, while introducing her to everyone. That's Judy, as in his imaginary girlfriend, as in take that, Robert Horry. Now how can you not love a lighthearted soul, who saves his intensity for the court and believes anyone as lucky as he is to be paid playing a game, should smile all the time? Enough already with the stuffed legends, the ex-Lakers prattling on and on about how things should be done just like they did them.

It's a hard world to get a break in, although for some more than others. If you're the Lakers, you can miss two shots in the final seconds of Game 4 in the 2002 Western Conference finals, with the Sacramento Kings about to go up 3-1, and see the rebound batted out to the only player who isn't going for it, who hits the winning three-pointer. Only you, Robert Horry. Or you can be down one with :00.4 left in San Antonio in 2004 after Tim Duncan's floating 20-footer, see your designed options taken away and inbound it to the only player who's open, who throws up an 18-foot half hook, which goes in. Thanks, Derek Fisher.

Welcome to his jungle. Del Harris long ago tired of having to defend Robert Horry to the masses disappointed in not having a power forward who averages 10 rebounds a game. New ammunition arrived the night before--19 points on seven-of-seven shooting, nine rebounds and four blocks in the Game 3 victory over the SuperSonics--so his coach wasn't about to let the moment pass Saturday without bringing some deserved attention to an outstanding showing.

In the last 25 years, there have been some improbable shots in Lakers playoff history, along with some equally memorable reactions. Here are some of the top shots and a snippet of their aftermath. 2010: As time expired, Ron Artest scored off Kobe Bryant's airballed three-point attempt to give the Lakers a 103-101 victory Thursday over Phoenix in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals. Reaction: "I don't know why I left him in the game," Coach Phil Jackson said. "I actually questioned it myself when I put him out there on the floor, and there he was. Made the key play."

Lakers, Spurs lead awards recipients Now, for our eagerly awaited NBA Decade Awards, or at least they might be eagerly awaited if they came up more often than once in 10 years. Teams of the decade -- Lakers and San Antonio. History isn't remembered by decades, but eras, which may not fit neatly into decades. The Lakers' 4-3 edge in titles over the Spurs this decade hardly demonstrates that they ruled, since it's 4-4 over 11 years counting the Spurs' title in 1999.
