Better Over the Backboard Shot: Rondo or Kobe?

Your Morning Dump… where maybe we overreacted a little

Lakers Success Hinges on Farmar, Bynum… Not Artest?

If the Lakers are going to repeat (typing those words makes me want to vomit), they are going to need a productive, stable season from Ron Artest, right? Maybe, maybe not.
