LOS ANGELES- Paying no heed to the faltering economy and how little gross national product they were generating by playing hooky, 1,110 Lakers season-ticket holders spent Wednesday afternoon watching their beloved and supposedly championship-bound team practice at Staples Center.

Here are 10 noteworthy (and bad) things they saw in the last hour of scrimmaging:

1. Andrew Bynum and Kobe Bryant miss connections on three consecutive passes— two thrown by Bynum, one thrown by Bryant on the old-stand-by Shaquille O'Neal play on which Bryant drives and then drops the ball off in traffic to his waiting center.

2. A little while later, Bryant ducks his head and drives again before firing a pass across the lane toward Bynum — except Bynum has vacated that spot in anticipation of an offensive rebound. "Oh, Drew! Stay there!" Bryant yells.

3. Vladimir Radmanovic, not Lamar Odom, is playing for the purple first team, so Odom is sitting out — or more accurately, lying down. He stretches out his legs and lets out a big yawn.


Not the type of stuff I want to be reading...

Bryant and Drew will figure things out.

As for Odom, isn't he always yawning?

9. Bryant wins the last scrimmage with back-to-back dunks. Then he wins the team-wide wind sprints — backpedaling to the finish line to reinforce the victory to his trailing teammates. Then he hits the final free throw that officially ends practice. This isn't supposed to be a one-man team anymore, by the way.
