Time is our best friend and our worst enemy. Experience makes you better, but it means you’re running out. You do want to maximize your time and take advantage of situations and the opportunities that present itself. I can’t take advantage if I’m watching or not doing anything.

IT’S OFFICIAL: They’re getting the band back together for one more season. In Phil Jackson’s own words:

I know I promised a few Laker haters I’d move on, but there is one bit of unfinished business I have to address.

In addition to securing their 16th championship in dramatic fashion on Thursday night, the Lakers also earned the Press Conference of the Year honor in the very last presser of the 2010 season, thanks to this 9:50 of pure brilliance by the one and only Ron Artest.
