Pau will be fine in a week or so. However, the labrum tear is something to keep an eye on. Will be hard to play with, and if he has surgery he will be out for the year.

Lakers suck. I hope they blow the draft and take a horrible Euro league player like we did with Yaroslav Koralev.

What draft pick? They don't even have one. If they make the playoffs it goes to Cleveland. If they don't, it's an unprotected pick to the Suns, even if they end up with 1st overall.

I think Odom had the same kind of injury Dwight has when he was on the Lakers and had to miss the rest of the season. Sucks if it happens to Dwight.

Sure would seem that way, though they would probably have lost the next 3 with Howard and Gasol.

I just don't see how they win any meaningful games...not unless they have some undiscovered talent on the bench ready to break out.

But they're a "superteam", right?

You all seem to forget... the media already crowned them champs back in October and the media is never wrong Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_03

Now kobe gets exactly what he wants... to do it all by himself.

Good luck snake-boy wink

I don't believe so. The Suns have access to it unprotected if the Lakers are inside the top 14. The "least desirable" talk only has to do with the Cavs and assumes the Lakers make the playoffs.
