JAMES WORTHY RUMORS & GOSSIP

James Worthy says Lakers still have “a shot” at landing Carmelo Anthony

The Lakers are out of the Carmelo Anthony race, right? Not according to this Lakers legend. Big Game James Worthy was a part of the Lakers’ pitch to Melo last week and revealed a few details of the meeting to SLAM Magazine today, and for what it’s worth, Worthy thinks the purple and gold still have “a shot” at landing the 30-year-old All-Star. “Carmelo has an open mind...

Lakers News: James Worthy to represent team at 2014 draft lottery

James Worthy was the last number one pick by the Los Angeles Lakers way back in 1982. That’s why it makes perfect sense for the organization to select Big Game James to represent the purple and gold at this year’s draft lottery. The Lakers announced today that Worthy would be attending the lottery on May 20th and, as the team’s last number one pick, he’ll hopefully bring...

James Worthy’s message to the Lakers: “Don’t practice offense anymore”

James Worthy loves a good old rant and last night was no exception. After the Lakers had their worst loss (statistically) in franchise history against the Clippers last night, Worthy went off during the post-game show on Time Warner Cable: SportsNet. And, as usual, the Lakers legend was critical of the team’s defense, so much so that he actually suggested that the team no longer...

Stop With the James Worthy, Jeff Green Comparisons

I HATE this guy I HATE the James Worthy comparisons, stop stop stop! You guys should too. Today James Worthy gave Jeff Green "respect" and doesn't mind the two being compared. I don't care! I hope all of you guys feel the same, this guy is one reason we did not win back to back championships in the 80's. Stop comparing Jeff Green to him. Let's all think...

Jeff Green Gets Much Respect from James Worthy

I think Scal was the first person I heard who compared Jeff Green to Laker great James Worthy. Then it kind of caught on because I heard both Mike and Tommy make those comparisons. And fans were starting to make the comparison on a regular basis. Then he dunked on Jason Kidd and we got the comparison again. But Jeff didn't like being compared to James Worthy without Worthy...

Worthy not crowning Lakers yet

It would be hard to find a Los Angeles Laker fan who is not claiming the 2013 NBA title before the season even starts. There is no denying that adding Dwight Howard and Steve Nash to the team make them an immensely better team, but just how good? One of the greatest Lakers of all time is not ready to give L.A. the trophy just yet. James Worthy likes their chances, but does not put...
