Analysis: Lakers face a tricky, expensive path to build around their Big Three

If he’s said it once, he’s said it a dozen times: Lakers coach Frank Vogel loves talking about getting players to “star in their roles.” Back when the discourse was whether the Lakers would ever find a third star, or if one of their other players would ascend to become a foundational piece like LeBron James or Anthony Davis, Vogel stressed that the team didn’t need one as long as everyone played their part. “We need guys like that to star in those roles if you’re going to have the ultimate succe...

Taika Waititi’s ‘Flash Gordon’ Movie is Now Live-Action

Two years ago, Taika Waititi signed on to helm a Flash Gordon movie about the space opera comic hero who debuted back in 1934. The film was initially planned to be an animated feature but recent reports prove that’s no longer the case, and the project is now being developed as a live-action film. While promoting his latest release, Jungle Cruise, producer John Davis revealed to Collider that this decision was made by Waititi himself, saying, “Taika is writing it. It was a movie that was a hug...

Westbrook is the quickest fix in the NBA, but the Lakers still depend on Davis’ health

The Lakers just became clear favorites to win the 2016 NBA championship. Russell Westbrook’s birth certificate says he will turn 33 on Nov. 12. LeBron James’s papers say he will turn 37 on Dec. 25. Anthony Davis’ MRIs indicate his legs might be older than either. Officially, he is only 28. But the trade for Westbrook is red meat to the inhabitants of Lakerland, who strongly believe that every notable player in the NBA is holding one of those buzzers they give out in family restaurants, on busy n...

Analysis: Lakers face tricky choice of priorities at No. 22 in NBA Draft

So what does a shot at the future represent to a team that keeps pushing its chips to the present?

A Comprehensive Eddie Murphy Documentary From Oscar Winner Angus Wall is Deep in Production Right Now

Soon we’ll get the whole story of Eddie Murphy’s life and career in the form of a new comprehensive documentary that’s now in production. Collider...
