Bryant expressed optimism the past two days of treatment and rest will make his foot feel "90 percent" when the Lakers (1-3) play tonight at Utah (1-2). Brown expressed optimism he'll reduce Bryant's current playing time, which has hovered at an average of 37 minutes through four games.

"I want to try to really be conscious of Kobe's minutes, Brown said. "What I can do is as we go on, is continue to be more conscious of not throwing him out there."

Bryant posted 40 points in 43 minutes in the Lakers' loss Friday to the Clippers. Even though Bryant played only 32 minutes in the Lakers' win Sunday over Detroit, Brown put him back in as the Lakers nursed a 24-point lead with less than nine minutes remaining. He stayed in for another four minutes and 41 seconds. Brown said he believed both scenarios would lead to a win.

Hmm. So Brown is concerned about minutes but he put Bryant back in the game against DET? :-{

Everyone was yelling at their TV screens when that happened. Put Pau and Howard back in, fine. But Kobe was certainly not necessary.

Chauncey Billups without hesitation said that Mike Brown was the best coach he ever played for and they asked him about Karl and he said Mike Brown again. No one even mentioned Del Negro his current coach. Hahahahahahaha

Philly VS New Orleans on ESPN and Spencer Hawes is rocking a hilarious mullet with a sketchy mustache.

Please tell me you mean Larry Brown, Jim? To think that anyone -- let alone Chauncey Billups -- would say that Mike Brown is their favorite coach truly hurts my soul.
