08:10 AM ET 03.29 | Kobe Bryant may be trying to get the band back together. [Bryant] is planning a hard push to recruit Derek Fisher and Lamar Odom back to the Lakers as free agents in the summer, a source familiar with Bryant's thinking told NBA.com as Fisher prepares to return to Staples Center as a member of the Thunder. Whether either would be receptive is unclear -- Fisher and Odom loved their seasons in Los Angeles, but were hurt to be traded within the last 3 1/2 months. It is known, however, that Bryant plans to use his close friendship with both to convince them that a reunion is in everyone's best interest, bruised egos and all. Management -- unable to comment on interest in players on another roster -- will have to be convinced as well.

Mike Brown would bench him for that.

And Jabbar, West, Robertson and Magic as well.


WTF is Kobe drinking?

He's doing his best to undercut any authority that Brown thinks he has by encouraging Bynum to keep tossing up 3's as well by comparing Bynum to his early self.

Yeah... nothing lie having another fat headed diva on the court that thinks he's bigger than the team.

Next issue... how to teach Bynum how to rape hotel maids and then make up with your woman by buying her a ring that cost a bazillion bucks.

Vanessa Williams -- but Rick screwed that up.

Rick is probably too busy with his acting career.
