-Magic Johnson says "72-10" should be replaced by "however many wins-continual improvement" as the Lakers' goal.
-Andrew Bynum may be growing before our very eyes, but that doesn't mean most games don't still contain an eye opening moment or three. Which makes sense, after all. If Kobe Bryant concedes that much remains for him to learn, it's pretty safe to declare the backside of Drew's ears "wet."
