Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are getting married this Sunday and it is being reported it will be filled with purple and gold.
Lamar has invited the entire Laker team to the wedding including coaches and management. The event will be a private affair and since the wedding is taking place so fast (Odom proposes last week and the couple met last month) people are being invited over the phone and that is how the guest list is being prepared. Could you imagine Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson, and Ron Artest being the groomsmen at your wedding? Dayum.
So far, the location has not been leaked but since the entire team has been told, expect it to leak. Lamar wanted to be married before he leaves for training camp October 7th. So far, Khloe has not been spotted with a ring.-Dr.FB
With Trevor Ariza most likely going to the Rockets or the Cavs, the Lakers made a bold move and are about to sign Ron Artest for 3 years/$ 18 million dollars.
Shaq is now a Cav and promises to get the King A Ring. We will see if Lebron gets one.
Unhappy to see Ariza go. Artest is a great defender but what he comes with could be deadly. Oh well. Under Phil Jackson, Rodman bloomed into a flower with less trouble. Maybe this could just work.-Dr.FB
Congrats to the Los Angeles Lakers as they defeated the Orlando Magic 4-1 to win the NBA Title.
This is Kobe Bryant's 4th NBA title, Phil Jackson's 10th title, and the Lakers' 15th title in their history.
There was a parade today in W. Hollywood. There is about to be another one for the Lakers. Purple & gold baby, purple & gold.-Dr.FB

Bynum out 8 to 12 weeks for ligament tear
NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum will miss eight to 12 weeks after tearing the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
Bynum was hurt in the first quarter of Saturday night's win at Memphis. Kobe Bryant drove to the basket, missed the shot and crashed into Bynum's right leg. Bynum immediately grabbed his knee.
Bynum is the Lakers' third-leading scorer and second-leading rebounder, averaging 14.0 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks.
The 7-0, 285-pound Bynum's injury brought back bad memories of last season for the Lakers. He went down in mid-January and was expected to be sidelined 8 to 12 weeks after bruising a bone in his knee and briefly dislocating his kneecap.
Instead, he missed the final 46 games of the season, as the Lakers lost in the NBA finals. He underwent arthroscopic surgery May 21 to remove cartilage debris and smooth some rough spots on the underside of his kneecap.
"This is a team that went to the finals last year that we put on the floor, so they're confident in what they can do," coach Phil Jackson said at the Lakers' shootaround Monday afternoon, before they announced the severity of the injury. "We know we're going to miss his presence, his rebounding ability. But this is a very capable team."
The injury came as the 21-year-old seemed to be taking a major step forward in his fourth NBA season. In the five games before he was hurt, he was averaging 26.2 points, 13.8 rebounds and 3.2 blocks and shooting 65.3 percent from the field.
"It changes our team, and the rhythm that we're playing with," Bryant said at the shootaround. "Obviously we found a great rhythm there with him in the lineup, particularly the last week or so. So we're going to have to make some adjustments."
Bryant insisted the Lakers could still win a title without Bynum.
"There are teams that lost in the finals that go back and win the next year," he said. "I think having Andrew in the lineup makes us a dominant team. With him out of the lineup, we're still a great team. You put him in the mix, it takes us to another level."
