No Lakers were named to the first or second NBA all-defensive teams, although Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant and Metta World Peace all received votes. Bryant, who is recovering from an Achilles' injury, posted a graphic image of the tendon mid-surgery.
Pau Gasol confirmed that he'll miss the European Championship in Slovenia as he works to get his knees healthy.
The Lakers' season ended after four playoff games, despite the team playing $129.5 million in salary and luxury taxes.
Phil Jackson's new book, "Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success," is to be released on Tuesday. In the book, Jackson looks extensively at Bryant. He also writes about learning how to communicate with World Peace.
In a chat with Jay Leno on the "Tonight Show," Jackson said the Lakers' win over the Boston Celtics in seven games back in 2010 was the most gratifying victory of his career. The Hall of Fame coach also recalled his non-hiring by the Lakers in November.
