Lamar Odom had 20 rebounds in the Lakers' win over the Hawks, his fourth consecutive game with at least 17 rebounds. The last Lakers player with 17-or-more rebounds in four straight games was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1975-76.

He had back to back 20 reb games vs GS last year so this streak should continue easily tomorrow for him.

Lamar Rodman is on a whole nother level right now. He is tracking EVERYTHING down, all while at the same time playing well on offense. Damn

If LO plays like this consistently, might as well giftwrap our rings and trophy. He can be as good as he wants to be.

17rebound games is no joke.

Phil needs to start Bynum, Gasol and Odom when Andrew returns. I think we have enough coming off the bench, and if necessary, Odom can play in that second unit as well.

I just want to see our three bigs play together in the starting five. Sending Odom back to the bench will be a mistake.

Only the Odom that plays in the starting five with Gasol.

In 2009.

I dunno about starting him with Drew and Pau. I'm hoping this is just the shot in the arm that Odom needed and he'll be able to carry on with this when he moves back to the bench. He's getting these numbers against other starting big men. He should be getting even better numbers off the bench. Putting him with Drew and Pau will limit him, and I don't think we'll be getting the most out of any of them playing all 3 of them together. To maximize all 3 of their outputs, I think playing them two at a time is the best option.

I'm glad LO is on this ridiculous rebounding run. I hope it continues and he gets 21 tonight at Golden State. I know it something stupid as personal stats but at least SOMETHING is movitating him to play hard out there and keeping him focused on the floor. Thank God.
