Tweet of the Day: "Perspective on Kobe's shin: He usually plays when he could play. But if he doesn't rest this properly, condition will just return." -- KevinDing (Orange County Register's Kevin Ding)

Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "A healthy Kobe is a big factor for the Lakers. Another big factor, though, is avoiding the Grizzlies in the opening round. The Clippers should be concerned, too. I think they could take out the L.A. teams as the home or road team. I was there when the Lakers lost to them at Staples. The Blue Bears have size and a lot of speed." -- TomHicks
