Tweet of the Day: "Odom taking a seat following one of his best games since the invention of the Snickers Bar." -- LarryCoon (New York Times' salary cap expert Larry Coon)
Reader Comment of the Day: "Interesting timing by Kobe and the organization. By signing now, Kobe is making a statement...essentially telling the basketball world that LA is his home and the Lakers are HIS team. He's not hedging his bets and awaiting the outcome of this year's playoffs before making up his mind. Kobe is where he wants to be and he let everyone know." -- bronxlakerfan
