OAKLAND -- The Lakers hold a 56-48 halftime lead Wednesday over the Golden State Warriors, pelting them with a steady barrage of Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol at Oracle Arena. Bynum had 23 points on nine-for-11 shooting in the first half of what could be the Lakers' last game without the injured Kobe Bryant. Bryant worked out before the game and appears ready to return Friday against San Antonio. He has missed seven games because of a sore left shin. Gasol had 12 points, six rebounds and five assists in the first half as the Lakers (39-23)

OAKLAND -- Kobe Bryant missed a seventh consecutive game because of a sore left shin but moved closer to returning after completing running and jumping exercises without feeling pain. If Bryant does not feel discomfort Thursday, he could return Friday against San Antonio. "There's a chance," Lakers Coach Mike Brown said. "I'll probably be on the floor next game," Bryant added to ESPN's Ric Bucher. Several hours before Wednesday's game against Golden State, Bryant took dozens of shots and underwent a workout that included some full-speed running.

It's difficult to imagine any woman dressed in shorts, or a short unitard, on a winter day in New York or Paris. But the idea makes such good sense here, it's as if designers worldwide had Southern California in mind. In Paris, Emanuel Ungaro and Jean Paul Gaultier offer distinctly different versions of winter-weight shorts.

Thierry Mugler has a motto: "Too much is just enough." And he pushes it to the limit in his spring 1991 fashion collection. His show was the first to get people talking during a week of ready-to-wear collections that ends Wednesday. With Madonna and Grace Jones in the audiences Thursday night, and with Diana Ross and Mick Jaggar's daughter, Jade, modeling, Mugler's newest styles had some tough competition. But they were up to the challenge.

Dear Fashion Police: This is the third or fourth spring season that I've noticed predominantly short shorts in the stores. Am I the only gal who can't let it all hang out? I actually have pretty slim legs, but they ain't what they used to be, and I am desperate to cover them from the knee up. Do the designers really want to see our cellulite and varicose veins? Also, car seats get hot in the summer, and it's nice to have some protection for the back of the leg. Can you please ask the designers what they're thinking?

There goes the best farewell. There goes the funniest there ever was. Let me get this straight, the NBA is going to have a season (not even David Stern has said they'll shut down forever) and Shaquille O'Neal won't be an Orlando prodigy who blocks out the sun ... or in Los Angeles as the life of the party ... or Miami to get a last ring ... or Phoenix for a last appearance alongside Kobe Bryant as All-Star co-MVPs ... or Cleveland, where he didn't quite get "a ring for the King" ... or Boston, where he became as Bostonian as Samuel Adams, the statesman or the beer, conducting the Boston Pops, posing as a statue outside Harvard Yard?

Ladies, please step away from the seamstress shears! Put those scissors down! Fashion observers want you all to know: Just because Jessica Simpson looks amazing in her Daisy Duke short shorts in the "Dukes of Hazzard" movie, which opened last Friday, that doesn't mean you should run right out and buy a pair or hack up your favorite hip-huggers trying to make some. Let's face facts. Simpson, 25, looks delectable in just about anything. Some of the rest of us? Eh. Not so much.

The naked truth, the sheer fact, the transparent motive and other French fashion mysteries will be exposed this spring. Transparent clothes--from icy-colored organza shirts by Claude Montana to punched black leather tops by Christian Dior to perforated paper dresses by Comme des Garcons--were part of every Paris collection. Montana did it best with his see-through, man-tailored shirts, big enough to wear as coats over short body dresses or Capri-length pants.
