DB: No more tattoos yet.
DP: Would you ever go full body?
DB: I'd never do full body. But then again, I said I'd never do sleeves. There'll be a couple more in the future, but definitely not full body. My mum would kill me.
• Shame Game
Jerry West said the Lakers weren't well-equipped to defend their title this season and isn't surprised that they were eliminated by Dallas. But he was disappointed by Game 4, when Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom were ejected for flagrant fouls. "Some of the things that I saw out there were pretty classless," West said. "I was a little bit embarrassed. Not with the loss, but with some of the things that I saw on the floor, which were not [things] that someone who wears a Lakers uniform should do."
• Kindred QBs
Kurt Warner said Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt recently asked him about the quarterbacks that might be available postlockout. Warner said his former team should set its sights on the Bengals' Carson Palmer. "I think he's one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league when he's in a situation where he feels comfortable," Warner said. "The way they played the game when I was here is [a good fit for] what Carson does."
