Too many quick shots and one-on-one forays to the rim from the second unit led Coach Phil Jackson to consider playing Luke Walton with that group more often.

Jackson hopes Walton's unselfishness and knack for setting up teammates will jumpstart a unit that has struggled at times since Lamar Odom moved into the starting lineup after Bynum's injury.

"I don't think they're really feeding the system the way they've got to feed the system for everyone to stay happy," Jackson said. "They're young and they look for their own game first rather than how to do it together. They don't trust each other together. That's the key that they're still missing."

If Odom keeps playing at this rate, maybe he should start when Drew gets back. If it doesn't work go back to Luke starting before the playoffs(hopefully we have Bynum before).

Drew should come off the bench if he returns. Don't change things when the team's winning. PJ should know that.

He'll come off the bench for few games.. and after that he's a starter for sure.

Luke isn't going to fix the second unit.

PJ understands the value of a person moving the ball within a triangle. Luke is excellent at that but when Bynum comes back he would force the second unit to run through there sets/triangle once the ball is dropped into him. He is not a bad passer either.
