"I guess my point here is this: If you're the Lakers, why not sign Gilbert Arenas? They worked him out a few days ago, to a chorus of bloggers (correctly) pointing out that he's hopelessly past his prime and not an obvious fit for the team. And I have no idea whether the super-secret European blood-spinning procedure he recently underwent has put the zest back in his knees, or if he's any different from the guy who coughed up that disastrous season for the Magic last year, and I'd say that the odds he'd actually help the Lakers are probably around 20 percent. But you know what? The current 'dignified wilting ex-champions' act of sitting still and making vague overtures toward Dwight Howard isn't going to help, either. Why not at least roll the dice and write your name on the season in letters big enough to see?" Brian Phillips, Grantland.com "Lake Show Entropy"

WASHINGTON (AP) -- OK, Mr. President, let's see how you do picking the pro game. Barack Obama was on his way to the Marine One helicopter on the South Lawn on Tuesday when a reporter shouted a question. The topic: Who is going to win the NBA championship, the Los Angeles Lakers or the Orlando Magic? Said the smiling president: "Lakers in six, I think." In sports terms, that means the Lakers will win the best-of-seven series in six games. The series begins Thursday. So far so good this year for Obama. A huge basketball fan, he correctly predicted that that the University of North Carolina men's basketball team would win the NCAA championship. Obama was leaving Tuesday for an overnight trip to the Middle East.
