Drew Gooden is a Spur (or will be by the end of today.) Joe Smith is a Cav (ditto.) And the Lakers are happy with what they have.

Although the Lakers had discussions with representatives for Smith, the 14-year veteran decided to head to Cleveland, according to several reports. But the Lakers are far from upset, even though they could have used another big body inside.

“We like what we’ve got,” Phil Jackson said. “We don’t want to change the chemistry. We’ve got such chemistry on this team. We can use a big guy, but we anticipate Andrew (Bynum) is going to be back and give us some help in the last month of the season.”

Bynum, who suffered a torn medial collateral ligament, could return to the team as early as March 30. The Lakers are 13-3 since he went down Jan. 31.

I swear when I see Bynum healthy again in a Lakers uniform I'm going to shed man tears. After watching a few past Lakers games I seriously started to miss him. 26 days is a long time but I know our guys can hold out.

"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

Very exciting news. I'm happy we didn't sign anyone. I'm a firm believer of the "Team Chemistry" factor and I thought signing someone would mess with the confidence of some of our players. I'm very happy...

Never trusting reports regarding AB's injury status until I actually see him.

Nice to be optimistic though.
