Notes and video: Kobe rests, Artest questions Sasha's taste in denim

By Brian Kamenetzky

The Lakers continued to crank things up this afternoon in El Segundo, with a fairly lengthy practice capped with an active scrimmage, officiated by genuine referees. No real surprises, which is a good thing. After making his training camp debut last night, Kobe didn't practice today. Don't be alarmed- it was by design, as opposed to any unexpected issues with his surgically repaired right knee. "He looked good," said Phil Jackson. "He said he had no significant problem with it. A little swelling, obviously, but I think that's it."

A few observations:

As you'll see in the video, Artest also had a laugh at the expense of Sasha Vujacic. Informed The Machine has his own line of jeans with Rock and Republic, he smiled. "I'm sure they're tight. European style."
