The Lakers are well-represented throughout the NBA. On Saturday, former Lakers center Andrew Bynum signed with the Indiana Pacers. Guard Shannon Brown, who won two titles with Bynum and the Lakers, also signed a 10-day contract on Saturday with the San Antonio Spurs. On Friday night, the Lakers fell to the Charlotte Bobcats, 110-100, a team armed with four ex-Lakers. In total, 14 former Lakers are under contract with other teams -- more if training camp invites and traded draft picks are included: Charlotte Bobcats: Ramon Sessions, Josh McRoberts, Jannero Pargo and Chris Douglas-Roberts (training camp invite)

Boston Celtics forward Glen Davis had surgery Tuesday to repair his broken right thumb after fighting with a childhood friend while riding in an SUV. Davis is expected to sit out at least six weeks and the Celtics said he also could be suspended for his behavior. In a statement released by the team, Davis apologized to his teammates, coaches and the organization. Davis signed a contract with Boston last summer that would pay him about $6 million over the next two years.

  The Lakers played against a bunch of guys who used to be on their team, and the result was like everything else this season. Boring. Uneventful. A loss. The Charlotte Bobcats were the winners Friday, 110-100, extending the Lakers' stupefyingly futile run to 3-18 since Dec. 21. Four former Lakers got in on the action for the Bobcats, but Al Jefferson trumped everybody with 40 points and 18 rebounds at Staples Center. Pau Gasol's body language is usually a good indicator of the Lakers' temperature.

Lakers 88, Charlotte Bobcats 85 (final) Pau Gasol shut down Charlotte's Al Jefferson in the final minutes as the Lakers made a late push to end a three-game losing streak, winning their first game since the return of Kobe Bryant from an Achilles injury. Kemba Walker, the game's leading scorer with 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting, converted a jump shot with 2:50 left to give the Bobcats a six-point lead.  They wouldn't score again. With the Lakers down by six, Nick Young hit a three-pointer to slice Charlotte's lead in half.  Kobe Bryant hit a layup and a pair of free throws to give the Lakers the lead.

Kurt Rambis was back in town, enduring a season that couldn't get much worse. Somehow his dry sense of humor remains intact while approaching the end of his second season as coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. He eyed up a small group of reporters when it was time to start his pregame news briefing Friday at Staples Center. There was a slight pause. Nobody asked any questions. "Is that it?" he said wryly, breaking the brief silence and pretending to head back into the locker room.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It hasn't looked as if the Lakers will soon add one of those golden trophies to the window sill that overlooks their practice court. Whether it's the slow return of an aging superstar or Pau Gasol's hot-and-cold play (mostly cold), there haven't been any indicators of a 17th NBA championship and ensuing parade snaking through downtown Los Angeles in June. But Kobe Bryant looked a little more like Kobe Bryant and his goal remained the same after the Lakers rallied for an 88-85 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday.

Chris Paul and Dwight Howard became free agents at 9:01 p.m. PT on Sunday. At 9:02 p.m., all but a handful of NBA teams stopped daydreaming and resumed their pursuit of more realistic options. If Paul and Howard represent the Rodeo Drive of this year's free-agent class, available to a select few, then there is still plenty of quality shopping to be done at nearby mega-malls. Andrew Bynum, Al Jefferson and Nikola Pekovic are all available. And those are just some of the top centers.

The list includes Blake Griffin , Brian Skinner and Marcus Camby . All victims of Clippers teammate Craig "Rhino" Smith , and all injured during training camp. Now, perhaps, is the time to add an opponent to the list. Smith, jokingly, had a former teammate in mind with tonight's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. None other than Big Al. As in Al Jefferson . "I told him I'm going to take him down," Smith said, laughing, at practice Sunday.
