I like Odom and think he's the perfect fit for Bryant. If the Lakers had Mike James (playing within himself) the Suns would have never got to play the Clippers, and it would have been the Lakers losing to the Mavs in the West finals. I really think this team is a Mike James away from contender status. And maybe a Hilton Armstrong or Saer Sene.
If the Lakers could somehow get their hands on Joel Pryzbilla and Mike James they are a top 4 team.
