Whether or not the Triangle makes it's way back to L.A. Which I believe it ultimately will, We desperately need floor spacing......

Floor spacing serves 2 purposes; #1 to give the man with the ball room to operate to go one on one. #2 To run the pick and roll to perfection #3 To provide room for wide-open shooters to receive the ball.

Option #3 needs to Be Knockdown, Lights Out, Dead-eye Shooters....we are sorely lacking in this area. it will make Dwight so much more Dangerous. it will give Kobe a Safety Valve. Pau, will find this man all day long. and Nashie will get 4 assists a game to someone who is automatic

May I nominate the first acquisition: Mike Dunleavy Jr.

He is a Knockdown, Lights Out, Dead-Eye Shooter who just plain drains it....He is also a real strong rebounder for a Small Forward..He will get you 7 Boards a game

He will give you 12-15 points a night and will go off for 25-30 on any given evening. he needs only about 18-25 minutes a game to do this too.... Oh and he's a great 3 point shooter as well

We are missing a pure shooter, on this star-studded team

Pull the trigger on Dunleavy...............Mike Dunleavy Jr.........not Senior Mitch..........

i'm so sick of Metta shooting under 30% from 3 and under 40% FG

i wish we could move Kobe to the 3 and have Meeks start at SG....it would space the floor so much

When Metta stops jacking up shots, it will open up possibilities for our "knockdown" shooters in Jamison and Meeks. Phil, if he comes, should totally ban Metta from shooting.

Jamison has put up worse shooting percentage than Metta and Meeks is streaky. The benefit though is that all three can make threes. But I'm more worried about Jamison than I am about Metta, because Jamison is known for those shots so he'll be taking them often because he stretches the floor. So it's very impairative he hits them. Metta I can live with missing a few because most of his damage comes from the post and from his defense and the "occasional" three. But Jamison and Meeks are here for that reason in particular and it's vital.

Exactly. Teams will exploit Metta's poor offense whenever he's on the floor. With Meeks on the floor, who will they leave open?

Kobe would take a beating at the SF position I think, it would wear him down too much.

Of course, Metta shooting .281 and Ebanks shooting .200 from 3 isn't going to get it done.

But, Nash is one of the best shooters in league history at the PG spot. Kobe have been exceptionally solid from the 3pt range and Meeks, who is so among the better shooters in the game should also get some more time at the 2, once we get a new coach. From the PF-spot, a Gasol-Jamison combination is just about as get as it can get as well from that position.

We will basically have two solid floorspacers on the floor at all times with this roster, so im not that concerned.

We've got some good shooters in Meeks, Nash and Jamison, therefore floor spacing is not a concern right now. A good SG-SF who can shoot the 3-ball would be awesome though because World Peace is absolutely a liability on the offensive end.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

We were not seeing a lot of quality production from our players due to bad rotations. I could've sworn I saw Blake, Metta, Jamison, Hill, Howard at one point on the floor

1gaurd, 2 forwards, 2 centers?

damn right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! metta should only get pt to lock someone down,,,teams will just leave him open to double :turrible:

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Metta needs to only focus on shooting in the gym, both jumpshots and freethrows.

IMHO, we need more slashers and people capable of creating off the dribble. Dribble penetration frees teammates up for open, uncontested shots. Those are easier to hit with consistency and will raise our collective shooting %. If we're going with Kobe at 3, Meeks is a decent option on our team. Blake is also a decent shooter when he plays off-guard.

Goudlecok would have been another who could've been developed into a pretty good outside shooter.

If we're talking about getting one via trade, that's hard. Most teams need shooting also so they aren't giving them up for free.

And MD Jr. ? LOL...we want to get better defensively, not exponentially worse (exaggeration, but not by much)

Yeah I noticed off the ball we stop moving, people don't know what to do if the ball isn't in their hands,
we deff could use more slashers and people need to be more willing to set screens off the ball and
not just the bigs.
