The number of the day is:

February 2, 2009


8-12, as in Andrew Bynum will miss eight to twelve weeks with a torn MCL. Its so fitting that this news comes on groundhog day, considering this is exactly what happened last year. This leaves the Lakers with basically two options; Sit and hope for his return, which the best case scenario is somewhere between the end of the regular season and the second round of the playoffs. Forcing them to move Gasol to center and Odom to the four, a starting lineup that helped propel them to the NBA finals. But we all remember how they were manhandled in the finals. So if the haunting memories of last years finals creep into Dr. Buss' and Phil's head, GM Mitch Kupchak will have to do his best Monty Hall impression. The best option here would be moving Odom and his expiring contract for a true big man, allowing Gasol to stay at his position of power forward. One of the more intriguing options here would be Brad Miller. A true center who can pass the ball and score when needed making him a great fit for Phil's triangle offense. Whatever the Lakers decide to do, it becomes more and more apparent that while Bynum is one of the more promising and talented players in the game he is one of the most injury prone centers in the game.

I think tht if the Cardinals made it to the Super Bowl, the Lakers can make it through this season with the results they were striving for last season. But thats just me.
