Interesting article about Odom’s state of mind with Bynum’s return. Odom has been playing phenominal since he has returned so I find this a bit overdone.

nastyO.C. Register: During the game (Lamar) Odom’s shoulders distinctly slumped when Sasha Vujacic didn’t give Odom the ball in a secondary-transition opportunity for Odom to swoop to the hoop. Instead, Vujacic reversed the ball back to Jordan Farmar, who made a simple and proper post-entry pass to Bynum, who had deep post position and scored.

Odom jacked up a corner 3-point shot and missed on the next Lakers’ possession.

In general, Odom lingered around the perimeter more than Phil Jackson ever wants and will have to figure out again how to make the most of fewer opportunities. Unlike the start of the season, though, Odom can easily see the light at the end now, and it glimmers with gold.

(Andrew) Bynum undoubtedly enhances the Lakers’ chances – did these 16 points in 21 minutes change your ridiculous opinion that the Lakers are better without Bynum, George Karl? – but there’ll be plenty of time to evaluate just how well Bynum is moving laterally, getting to the point of the ball for rebounds and staying down on pump fakes.

    i didnt even see L.O. struggle at all. but if it is, then things will only get easier. bynum will get better and better along the way. hez showing signs of gettin better and its only been two games. but as for L.O., just stick to the goal and be patient and in the end he’ll be spraying champagne and smoking cigars kissing that trophy.
