Lakers-Magic pregame

ORLANDO, Fla. — Check out Ron Artest’s new ‘do for today’s game against the Orlando Magic. He dyed it gold and purple. The word “defense” is dyed in Hebrew, Hindy and Japanese, although Lakers coach Phil Jackson thinks it might be Korean. Meanwhile, Kobe Bryant came down with an upset stomach and was a late arrival to the arena. He is expected to play. Asked for Bryant’s status, Jackson cracked, “All-Star, guy who has scored 25,000 points, possible Hall of Fame candidate when he retires, four championships.” When it was point out that Bryant wasn’t yet at the arena, Jackson said, “Oh, that.”
