Kobe Bryant has a suggestion for Lamar Odom.

"Send the referees a bouquet of flowers," he said.

Odom finished with four points, six rebounds and five assists in 23 minutes. Against Denver on Friday night, he had 12 points and five fouls.

"Lamar just really had an awful day," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said Sunday. "There were a couple really bad calls against Lamar that limited his time."

Odom and Jackson were not enthralled with the calls Sunday.

At Odom's request, Jackson looked at the sixth foul on a replay in the Lakers' locker room after the game.

"It was a really bad call," Jackson said. "You're going to have situations like that where you have young referees that make calls that aren't good. You just have to live with it."

Said Odom: "There were about three or four calls. That's the way the ball bounces, two games in a row. I never really got to play."

You know watching that game I'm willing to let him off the hook. There were some seriously ticky-tacky fouls today.
"If you could stop all the players that get publicized and all the players that the NBA likes and all the players, you know, the players that win the MVP's, you know, for their offense. And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too. But some of them, you know, they like "this guy he can shoot, he can score, he can dunk." and I want to be the one to stop all those guys, you know, and just kinda spoil the whole party." - Ron Artest

Yeh, I hate ticky-tack fouls. Sometimes it's too inconsistent but can't be blamed.
