Some of his best Bball has been played at the SF position with E. Brand at PF. He has the handling abilities and passing skills. His length and size at sf will create trouble for most of the other sfs in the league. I think he will adapt well back to his natural position, as will Gasol. Keep what we have its not broken, we overachieved last season. Its not broken all we need is a healthy Bynum and Ariza off the bench

he also started at SF with us in the 05/06 season

Yes he can do a lot of stuff at the SF position but can he hang on defensively with opposing SFs?

can he stay healthy?

with Gasol and Bynum taking over space in the paint can Lamar knock down long range shots (which was non existent last year)?

I hope he answers those questions in training camp.

Most of us are getting a little tired of him but we're willing to give him a chance at SF and see how this massive lineup does

Yeh, he was skinnier before though. I'm not tired of Lamar even though there have been times where he would frustrate me (but everyone does that too) but I still want him on the team. We'll let the experiments continue.

That was his first 2-3 years...he was the star in the first 2. Brought in Brand and his numbers took a hit.

If you really want to talk about his production at SF, look at his teams winning % with him at SF...not good.

At this point of his career I don't think his abilities make him the perfect SF like he was for Clippers. He was a main scoring option for the Clippers, now his needed abilities for the Lakers have been set on the table and one of them is to not be a main option for scoring.

1. was slimmer and younger

2. different offense

3. zero talent around him so numbers were inflated
