The Credits: "Pariah"

Starring: Pau Gasol is the odd man out this weekend as Bynum and Kobe are headed to Orlando for All-Star Weekend. Which is a shame considering he is beginning to show black swan Pau of late. Even then, the Lakers didn't have enough horsepower to match the run and gun Thunders:

Bynum was brusque with reporters after the loss Thursday night and walked away, saying: "We played like (expletive) and we got beat."

Speaking of Bynum, he is going to undergo a routine knee procedure:

Andrew Bynum did not seek any postgame treatment for his problematic right knee despite some discomfort in the final moments of the Lakers' loss Thursday night in Oklahoma City.
Bynum had previously been scheduled to receive a Synvisc injection from his personal doctor, David Altchek, in Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Friday.

It doesn't sound serious, though any headline with the words "Bynum" and "Knee" are bound to worry us a bit. He'll still be able to play in the all star game so he should be okay.

Much more after the jump...
