Phil Jackson Called Off Practice After A Quick Video Session!!!
Quick day in El Segundo today. Phil Jackson called off practice after a quick video session. The Lakers will practice tomorrow before boarding a 3 p.m. flight to Phoenix for Wednesday's Game 5.
-- Kobe Bryant was a first-team selection to the NBA's all-defensive time, the seventh time in his 11 seasons that he's been a first-team or second-team selection. Bryant got 14 first-place votes out of 30, and fellow first-team selection Raja Bell got seven first-place votes and 11 second-place votes. Bruce Bowen, Tim Duncan and Marcus Camby also made the first team.
-- Phil said Lamar Odom felt better today, after a tough game in which he was limited by his elbow and shoulder injuries. Only rest and (likely) surgery will help Odom at this point.
-- Phil once again mentioned the possibility of putting Radmanovic on the active roster, but he said the same thing before Game 4 and didn't do it. Presumably, Brian Cook would be the odd man out, and given that he has a sprained thumb, that switch wouldn't be a stretch.
Not much else news going on. Players were not available to reporters today, so the only interview transcript is from Phil Jackson. More tomorrow...

What's the video?
Do want to be pessimistic, but this series is pretty much over. I dont see the lakers winning any games in Pheonix.
