Tweet of the Day: "LAKER COACHING ODDS Adelman 3-1. Dunleavy 3-1. BShaw 10-1 and dropping the more they let him interview. Byron 100-1. Byron w/o contract 1-2." -- MHeislerLATimes (L.A. Times NBA columnist Mark Heisler)

Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: " I think right now the Lakers need to take a hard, critical look at who they've got, what they can do, who they need and who they can get. This isn't the time to judge the situation through purple and gold glasses. Just as any CEO must take an unbiased view of his companies strengths and weaknesses and not be afraid to be critical, so must the Lakers do the same thing." -- Art
