Lakers keep practicing; Kobe Bryant still not doing much

While the rest of the Lakers continued to practice during the fifth day of training camp, Kobe Bryant stood on the sidelines and watched yet again.

Bryant and Lakers center Andrew Bynum are recovering from surgeries to their right knees.

Bryant practiced some Monday night, but has done little else since then.

Bynum has not practiced, but he has done some flat-foot shooting.

The Lakers will play their first exhibition game Monday in London against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

When asked if Bryant would play in London on Monday or in Barcelona, Spain, when the Lakers play Regal FC Barcelona Oct. 7, Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said:

 "That's still to be determined. Right now, he's had only one practice live and just short."

Jackson knows that the fans in London and Spain want to see Bryant play, but rest might be better for Bryant.

"Yes, you want the fans that have paid -- I was going to say dollars, but it's not dollars -- to have an opportunity to see remarkable players," Jackson said. "But if he's not well enough to do so, obviously we won't do that."

Dear Laker Fans of Machine,

Nobody on Laker team as tough as Machine!!! Please do not let perfectly groomed eyebrows and velvet hairband of Machine fool you.

Machine also like to say "you are welcome" to all Laker fans of Machine for making most clutch free throws in history of NBA.

Machine also also like to announce new sexy jeans designed by none other than Machine. Machine think jeans are bit baggy for Machine's taste, but either way, Machine look sexy. Machine ask all Laker fans of Machine to please buy jeans of Machine. Picture of jeans of Machine is attached:

Machine is always broken. All you did was take some valuable playing time for me. Watch me play in NJ an dI will show you what a working machine looks like. I will leave you in the dust if you ever guard me.

Hey guys. None of you were deserving to take my role, but Steve B is going to be real good for us. I think he is the one Phil will trust to take my minutes away and maybe my strating gig too.

Dear Laker fan of Machine, Alan da Laker Fan:

Sincerely,

SASHA V.

re: alan da lakerfan. i think your machine is broken

The Contraption has spoken. Again. And again. And again.

@CAP’S GOGGLES… Nice additions. Like them all, especially Pearl Jam. Been a long time Eddie Vetter fan. Here was my Valentine song this year for Mrs. LakerTom: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuq7RYQ8Wa0
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@DJ… Concerts give life to some of the craziest stories. I remember Mrs. LakerTom and I going to an Elvis Costello concert and he played a couple of songs from the Beatles. There were four young girls sitting in front of us and I swear to God one of the girls turned to the others and said “Who are the Beatles?” That was one of the first moments when I felt my age, sort of like watching you hit below .300. LOL. Go, Yankees.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
DBDH… ROFLMAO… “Chuck Norris real name was Matt Barnes.” Too funny, man. You are on a great role.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
KOBEMVP888…. “I'm not sure I like this Bynum moratorium. :)” LOL. Think of it as a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order. Mrs. LakerTom asked why I seemed so happy. I told her basketball season was finally here and Kenny just cashed my retainer check so I no longer have to fend off the Bynum Bashers by myself. Of course, the Bynum Bashers have counsel too. Only problem is that is pro bono legal aid.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
JEFE101… My bad. Until I get my Google implant, you guys will just have to bear with me. When I was thinking of the song, what kept going through my mind was Del Shannon’s version. I almost didn’t post the James Taylor version because for some reason it didn’t seem right – too slow. Thanks to you, now I know why. Here it is: http://il.youtube.com/watch?v=jAamFAuEw8c&feature=related
And speaking of Del, who could not love this one: http://il.youtube.com/watch?v=8TLLcvWeiKw

TOM

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what the Machine, Jordan F and Derek F do so quit yapping. It's the Black Mamba with the Spaniard that's going to lead us all to the 3-peat!
