Johnson-Odom appeared in four games for the Lakers this season, where he totaled four rebounds and one assist in six minutes.

The Los Angeles Lakers are not doing well. They are continually losing as they attempt to find their ways, if possible. The future of being in the NBA Playoffs this coming Spring 2013 is not looking too bright at the moment. At first they blamed their coach and he got [...]
Things are not going as planned this season for the Los Angeles Lakers, and fans are none too pleased. The Lakeshow have managed a paltry 15-18 record even with the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. While we believe that it is easily no one player which is the root of the problem, this plea to have Gasol fired is pretty phenomenal. The icing on the cake is the Sarah McLachlan...
We’re one happy family T…
Lakers star Kobe Bryant had a bit of fun with his newly formed Twitter account yesterday. A report surfaced that Kobe and Dwight almost came to blows after another frustrating loss, so Kobe shot out the pic above. No better way to squash a rumor than to make fun of it. Definitely funnier than their current #11 spot in the Western Conference.-TO

It could be a combination of all that.
Things will go from bad to worse if his shoulder injury is anything serious. Here is what Dwight had to say.
“I would like to play but I just want to make sure that my shoulder is good to go,”...
LOS ANGELES Bill Parcells, the Super Bowl-winning football coach, thoroughbred horse owner and noted philosopher once uttered, You are what your record says you are.

Funny stuff. Somebody remixed Sarah McLachlan’s PSA for the ASPCA into a PSA for trading Pau Gasol. The video has gone viral over the last 48 hours and is guaranteed to make you laugh:
Kobe Bryant vs. Dwight Howard
So much for the rumored fight between Los Angeles Lakers stars Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard. Bryant posted this photo to his Twitter page today.
"The mamba vs d12 !! It's on lol," Bryant wrote.
How dare they put Mike D'Antoni in the middle. Can we get this signed for WrestleMania, Vince McMahon?

While Metta World Peace tried to do his part, the Los Angeles Lakers couldn't overcome the loss of three frontcourt players, including a pair of All-Stars, during their opener to a brief road trip through Texas.
