Lakers' starting 5, listed by Mike Brown today:
1: Fisher
2. Bryant
3. Barnes/Walton/Ebanks
4. Gasol
5. Bynum

6. MWP

Uh huh.
hey, errbody's got holes in their lineup....here's the roster of the odds-on favorites to win the title:

1. ______
2. Wade
3. Lebron
4. Bosh
5. Eddy Curry facepalm.gif

6. Haslem
7. Battier
8. Miller

maybe Arenas or Baron might want to come run point in Miami Beach.....actually lemme not even joke about that, it might just come true mad.gif

And how do you list Perkins as 6-10 and Durant 6-9?

I read that rookie PG Norris Cole is looking good and may even beat out Chalmers.
Yeah, Arenas or Davis would not be good.
Eddy Curry at the 5 is not a hole; it's a Grand Canyon. He's going to start over Haslem?

Eddy Curry sits out practice again

MIAMI -- Eddy Curry has been an uplifting presence to his new Miami Heat teammates. But he hasn’t yet been able to do much on the court.

Curry, the Heat’s attempt at a reclamation project at center, missed his second consecutive practice Tuesday. He made it through his first workout with the team on Saturday but left his second practice on Sunday early and now has missed the new two sessions.

The Heat say Curry has been sore and has a hip flexor after his limited work thus far.

“He went really hard that first day and so we want to do it at an appropriate level,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We’re being proactive in making sure that, hopefully, he’ll be able to go in the next couple of days.”

Simply, this is not the start Curry or the Heat were hoping for. While the team has kept its expectations low and clearly wants to go slowly with Curry in the hopes he can continue to improve, already being on the shelf is a reminder of just how much of a long shot it may be.

Curry, who has played just 10 games in the past three years and was not in the league last season, said he’d lost 70 pounds in preparation for training camp. Curry checked into camp weighing over 300 pounds, which was more than the goal the team set for Curry when the worked him out at the end of last season. But team president Pat Riley decided to give him a look, offering him a contract last week.

Intriguing. Weren't the Lakers-Wolves discussing Pau for Love + Minn pick last summer?

Vujacic's trade exception expires today; I hope the Lakers use it for something.

Kobe Bryant's Wife Files For Divorce He Cheated Too Much

Kobe Bryant's wife has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Vanessa Bryant filed legal docs Friday afternoon, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Vanessa -- who stuck by Kobe after he was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado woman in 2003 -- decided to end the marriage because she believes Kobe has been unfaithful ... again.

As one source puts it, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough," adding, "This one is the straw that broke the camel's back."

And our sources say ... Kobe "desperately" wants to win Vanessa back and will do "whatever it takes" to save their 10 1/2 year marriage.

According to the legal docs, Vanessa is asking for joint custody of their 2 daughters -- 8-year-old Natalia and 5-year-old Giana -- but Vanessa is asking that Kobe get visitation rights, which means she wants the kids in her care most of the time.

We've learned the couple has NO PRENUP, so 29-year-old Vanessa is entitled to half of the empire Kobe built over the last decade.

She's also requesting spousal support ... which is typical in divorce cases. Kobe, who filed his response to the divorce minutes after Vanessa filed her petition, says he will pay her spousal support.

According to the docs, Vanessa is being repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser and attorney Samantha Klein. Wasser reps oodles of celebs, including Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Maria Shriver and Kim Kardashian.

Kobe went to the Jay-Z concert Tuesday night in L.A. without Vanessa, and people who saw him there say he looked miserable.

Vanessa signed the divorce petition on December 1. Kobe signed his response on December 7.

Oh yeah, that $4 million ring Kobe gave Vanessa after the 2003 scandal .... It's all hers. A gift is a gift.

I just heard John Ireland say, "We have breaking news to report...." and I'm thinking, Dwight?, a PG?, who?...and it's this. Sad.
