Here's a nice little report from Marc Berman that explains this photo shared by eomede07 and this silly-ass TMZ video (not that either really needed explaining). Berman reports that "Hollywood" Mike Woodson (this is his nickname?) spent a long weekend in Los Angeles visiting several of his players. Woodson, along with Jim Todd and Darrell Walker, flew to L.A. to catch up with Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler, who are training together in preparation for the Olympics. At some point, Jeremy Lin flew down from Palo Alto to join them and the whole group went out to dinner at what appears to be Mastro's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. My sources can neither confirm nor deny that Jim Todd ordered the Scottish Salmon Fillet but sent it back because it was "too Scottish". Meanwhile, Woodson can be seen in that video favoring fist bumps over handshakes. Smart man.

Later, Woodson headed out to a gym in Anaheim to hang out with Landry Fields (hence that photo). So, basically, Woodson took a trip to keep up with his troops, and perhaps to put in an extra good word with a couple free agents-to-be. Cool.
