El Dorado High huh? I went to Kennedy in La Palma (graduated 86). Our schools played each other in sports and I believe they still do.

Placentia is a great town. North Orange County is a super place to live.

Most likely February. Shaq will be first to come back (maybe out only one more week), then Kobe will come back hopefully before the All-Star Break, since he has been voted one of the starting five. Karl Malone's injury seems the most serious so that might take a while longer.
