  MILWAUKEE - Somehow the days get even more unpredictable for Chris Kaman. He went 10 games in a row without getting off the bench, then started for the Lakers on Tuesday against the New York Knicks because Pau Gasol was sidelined by vertigo. He also voiced his displeasure that day with this season, saying he "can't wait till it's over," a shot at Coach Mike D'Antoni and the small-ball concept. That was the easy part for Kaman. He did not travel with the Lakers the day before Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks because he stayed in Los Angeles for a family member's undisclosed medical procedure.

Something about the sleek lines and brooding bulk of the 1941 Buick Special sedan grabbed young Harry Bradley. He didn't yell out or run up to peek in. And unlike most 5-year-olds, he didn't badger his parents to buy one. What he did was go home and draw it. Fifty years, tens of thousands of sketches and hundreds of sleek sedans later, Harry Bradley is still at the drawing board, the favored spot for one of Southern California's best-known automobile designers and illustrators.
