July 27, 2011 | 11:15 am


--A roundtable of TrueHoop bloggers all selected Dwyane Wade as the league's best shooting guard over Kobe Bryant. 

--The Times' Lance Pugmire says how the NFL ending its lockout won't necessarily speed up the NBA's effort in reaching a new collective bargaining agreement.

--The Orange County Register's Kevin Ding contends that many of the Lakers will benefit from a lockout-shortened season. 

--Ball Don't Lie's Kelly Dwyer details Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's anger at Michael Olowokandi.

--ESPN Los Angeles' Brian Kamenetzky breaks down how some of the free agent power forwards would fit in with the Lakers. 

--ESPN the Magazine's Chris Palmer ranks Bryant as the NBA's best shooting guard.

--Silver Screen and Roll's WildYams expresses concern over the NBA lockout.

Tweet of the Day: "Went for a drive, turned on @710ESPN and heard @RicBucher saying both Kobe & the Lakers would be better off trading him. Wow." -- mcten (ESPN Los Angeles' Dave McMenamin)

Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "I think we have to figure out a way to get Chris Paul. A big 3 of Kobe/Paul/Bynum would be perfect. Pick up a strong power forward who can defend, like a Chuck Hayes or someone like that, and we'll be primed for the championship." -- Gilberto Rocky Portillo
