Kobe Bryant will meet Carmelo Anthony personally later Thursday night in Los Angeles in efforts to recruit him to the Lakers.
Where will they meet? Will they be at Kobe's house? His favorite restaurant? Favorite club? Where? We're all dying to know, right? Not really. Just like Joakim Noah personally recruited Melo for Chicago, Kobe is being told to do the same here. He'll take him out, show him a good time and Melo will move on to the next city to check the local flavor. Either way, none of this matters to the fantasy world until he officially signs somewhere.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Cameron Maybin went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday’s 7-1 loss to the Mets.
Maybin is seeing plenty of time in center field for the Braves right now, as he is a strong defensive player with exceptional range. At the plate, he has been anything but consistent, going just 4-for-28 over the last eight games. However, Maybin has displayed an unexpected power stroke, as three of those hits have left the yard. With enough at-bats, the fleet-footed 28 year old could have a shot at 15/15 production with regards to homers and steals. Analysis: Nate Miller
