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
John Brown is practicing Thursday.
Brown should be a full-go this week and will see a fair share of the targets regardless of Michael Floyd's status. Obviously he'll see more if Floyd is out, but even if he's in, Brown should have ample opportunities this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
