Given those circumstances, Sunday night's overtime win against the ostensible rival Boston Celtics seemed like a pretty good time for some celebration. The victory snapped a seven-game losing streak for Los Angeles, and point guard Jeremy Lin scored a season-high 25 points to get them there. So, in his post-game interview, Lin was interrupted by Nick Young, Jordan Hill, and Carlos Boozer for some classic hijinks. Everyone seemed to have a pretty good time: Everyone except Kobe, I guess. While he wasn't present at the game, Kobe was asked about the moment during an interview on Monday night's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." It appears that he wouldn't have had much patience for such antics (via SB Nation): Yahoo! Sports

Lakers forward Jordan Hill made clear on Wednesday that he wants to remain in Los Angeles for the long-term, telling the L.A. Daily News, “I want to be here. I want to be a in a steady place I call home.” While Hill has been mentioned as a possible trade chip in the Lakers’ efforts to alter the roster going forward—his name has come up in connection with Goran Dragic of the Suns and Reggie Jackson of the Thunder—a source told Sporting News that it is, “highly unlikely,” that Hill will be traded before Thursday’s deadline. “There doesn’t seem to be anything happening there at all,” the source said.

For better or for worse, Hill’s tenuous health could complicate any effort for the Lakers to deal him leading into Thursday’s trade deadline. Otherwise, he represented one of the Lakers’ few tradable assets. Hill has posted career-highs in points (12.3), rebounds (8) and minutes played (28). His two-year, $18 million contract also appears attractive because any trading partner can decline his team option for next season. “It’s nothing I can control. Whatever happens, happens. I’ll keep on moving forward,” Hill said in an interview with Los Angeles Newspaper Group. “Nobody knows what will happen. No one knows who will be here. Anybody can be gone. But it’s what you sign up for.” Los Angeles Daily News

“I try to focus on my diet. But I always find myself slacking. I have to treat my body a lot better. I still have no alcohol. That’s a big plus for me. But with my diet, I find myself eating junk food,” Hill said. Los Angeles Daily News

Now he's up to 29 minutes a game, almost 12 more than his career average. "We have to get him back to playing that [energetic] way, and I don't know how we do that right now," Scott said, adding that a minutes reduction might be necessary. Hill's recovery time also has been slower than expected. "He's not recovering in that 24 hours or 48 hours, whatever the case may be, as fast as we want him to or as fast as his body should," Scott said. "It's something that we've just got to try to figure out." Los Angeles Times

No one on the Lakers would argue they are better off with Bryant. But his team-leading 24.6 points per game average has come on a career-low 33.5 percent shooting. “He’s tired, man,” Lakers forward Jordan Hill said. “He’s trying to go out there and give it his all and help win some games.” Los Angeles Daily News
