After tonight's game, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant embraced Mavericks forward and former Laker Lamar Odom and spoke into his left ear for a good 10 seconds.

It appeared to be a pep talk, especially when Bryant ended the conversation by thumping Odom's chest with an open palm.

When asked about the exchange, Bryant said, "None of your business what I said."

What does Bryant see when he watches Odom play for the Mavericks? On Wednesday, Odom scored 1 point, shot 0-for-3 from the field and pulled down 1 rebound in almost 24 minutes. When Odom badly missed a free-throw early in the second quarter, boos rained down from the American Airlines Center crowd.
