Tweet of the Day: "The real reason Pau pushed Humphries? He's also upset about the whole "Kardashian" thing " -- ESPNLandoLakers (ESPN Los Angeles' Andy Kamenetzky)

Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "Andrew Bynum needs to get over whatever his psychological/emotional problems are and become a real teammate. That means thinking of others; considering the consequences of one's actions, their impact on those around you; and taking responsibility for one's choices. Unless he matures (and quickly), he's going to be headed down the path of formerly-great athletes who are broke and in trouble (e.g., Alan Iverson, Dennis Rodman, et al.). Nothing is more pitiful than watching the self-immolation of a potentially great person who is victim to "self-will run riot."" -- Swatkinslaw
