Jackson acknowledged Odom is “flourishing from the effects of starting,” but then added: “If he can carry that from the bench to the floor, that’ll make us that much better.”

Odom wasn’t able to play anywhere close to this way before Bynum got hurt Jan. 31, so it remains to be seen whether Jackson can get Odom to do it now that he has found a groove again.

If Lamar can bring the same impact he's had while starting, then I would want him to return to the bench too. We'll be even that much better.

Something tells me Lamar isn't going to like that.

And who'll start then ? Trevor ? Jordan ? Josh ? Vujacbrick ? These guys are not starters yet. Lamar is the only "bench player" than can play well as a starter ...

I think Bynum should come off the bench. It will be too risky to start him right after he comes back. And he can bring the energy ro the second unit. Lamar can't...

LO is still going to start when Bynum comes back because Bynum is not starting when he comes back. He needs a few games to get his conditioning back.

For the playoffs, and especially if we play Boston, Phil needs to start:

C - Bynum
PF - Gasol
SF - Odom
SG - Kobe
PG - Fisher

That way, we have way too much size up front for many teams. Hell, Gasol will more than likely play 40 minutes plus anyways, so just rotate him and Odom out of the lineup, play Kobe as usual, and get the job done this time around, instead of using guys like Walton in the starting five, who will get bullied around.

If memory serves me right, it'll be the biggest and most talented lineup since Bird, McHale and Parish, and we know how good they were.

Do you think Phil is going to play the big 4 without even trying the lineup in the regular season?

If Bynun doesn't come back during the season, then he can't tinker with the line-up.

He'll have time if Bynum gets back before the playoffs. It's not like we are going to fall to an 8th seeded team, either.

LO is going to come off the bench. As soon as Bynum can he will start. We aren't going to have Pau keep guarding Shaq and Duncan in the PO's. PJ will keep starting Luke.

Even if and when Bynum is able to come back to the starting lineup, I think it's plain and clear that Lamar is much more comfortable starting. I know people say it's not whether you start the game, but how many minutes you get is the important thing. Odom, however, has showed that starting (even at the 3) is absolutely imperative to his game. Keep him as a starter....PHIL!

well lemme say this, as well as Lamar has been playing, he doesnt establish he middle like the Big fella. Also Andrew cant lead those benches like LO. but if he isnt up to speed i think phil will start LO
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers
