Starring: Andrew Bynum and Kobe Bryant starting for the West's All Stars. Andrew Bynum makes his first appearance in the all star game and is understandably excited:

"For me, it feels good because this year, I'm putting up the numbers that qualify me for it, and the fans voted me in," he said. "So it's not like I was picked by the coaches out there.
"I can't wait to go."

Tonight, the Lakers are in Denver to face the Nuggets. Last month, the Lakers lost a close contest to the Nuggets on a tough back to back game. The Nuggets are just coming off a blowout of the Clippers, so the Lakers should have the edge in energy this game. When asked about the upcoming road trip, Metta World Peace replied with something totally unrelated:

"I grew up around roaches," he said. "And it was bad. Too many of them. To many friends, yeah, in New York. I got a lot of roach friends.

I'd wake up, they'd wake up in my cereal. They'd wake up like, you know, just Ron what's up, good morning. One leg in my macaroni, the other leg in my corn. They just made themselves comfortable at my home."

Also, are the Lakers eyeing "Skip-2-My-Lou" Rafer Alston?
