1. The Lakers acquired No. 55 pick Darius Johnson-Odom and No. 60 pick Robert Sacre in the 2012 NBA Draft last Thursday!!! Woot! Woot!

2. Deron Williams to stay with Nets, no go for Lakers. Boo.

3. Bynum and MWP being offered up for Dwight Howard. Again.

4. Gasol to become a (Timber)wolf? At least he and brother Marc will have some Midwestern fun together…

5. The LA rivalry heats up…as of last Friday, Lamar Odom is a Clipper!!!! (Again.)
But he won’t be going to London in red, white and blue! Chris Paul will be representing, though!

5. …because the Olympics are coming! The Olympics are coming! Get ready for Kobe and Co. to show the world how we play this game! In the meantime, here’s a look at how the King dominated in 2008. Go USA Go!

6…and in case you’ve been living under a rock, Lebron’s Heat are the 2012 NBA champions, defeating the Thunder 4-1. What should the Lakers do to get Kobe his 6th ring in 2013?

UPDATE!!!!

7. …and in breaking news former Phoenix Suns Guard Steve Nash is now a Laker!!! Woot!

    I think it all depends on what Melo wants glory or a ring. If he can do what LBJ and Bosh did, which is chsooe a team that is best suited for a ring, he may be down to take less shots and let Kobe do most of the work. I think you’d have to be real stupid to assume that when you enter KobeLand, you know that you are not going to be the No. 1. Of course, I’m assuming Melo is not stupid, and I’m not convinced that he isn’t because, to me, anyone who demands a trade from a good team (Nuggets have been dangerous the last five years or so) is pretty stupid. I think the best argument against this trade is that Melo doesn’t make the team better defensively, which clearly the Lakers need right now. However, Bynum isn’t exactly doing that either when he’s on the bench all the time. Fact is, right now, the Lakers are just as good without Bynum as they are with him on the floor (the stats prove this they have almost the same exact record), so if they could add Melo, I really believe they would be the best, if not second best, team in the West (the Spurs are killing right now). Phil would just have to work some magic like he’s done so many times and handle another big ego onto the team with a infamous history of egos. That, and teach Melo how to play a little more D. At the end of the day, adding a superb player like Melo (one of the best scorers in the league) can never hurt your team. That’s just a fact. He’s way too talented. This will be proven when he leaves the Nuggets and then they struggle to make the playoffs this year.

    Great point. The Celtics were big last year, and now they’re bigger. Shaq, Jermaine (if he ever gets hhtlaey), Perk, Big Baby and Kevin Garnett are all good big men. That’s five to the Lakers’ two (Gasol and Bynum). I don’t see how they’ll be able to win a seven game series again if Bynum, on even one knee, isn’t there.
