Tweet of the Day: "As I said last night - appreciated Kobe's sentiment - but it's immaterial to big picture of what LA trying to accomplish as an org" -- EricPincus (Hoopsworld's Eric Pincus)

Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day:"Kobe needs to learn patience. There is almost 1 month until the trade deadline. And no one will know what will happen until DHoward/Orlando makes their move. The Free Agency market changes drastically depending on that move. The lakers would be foolish to do anything to change their current position. " -- Jay Taylor
