Is this roster flawed?

What ails this team so far in the early going (but getting a little beyond early).
Well, one thing may have been a remark by Jerry West in this weeks Sports Illustrated reported by Dan Patrick.

He asked West if the expectations for this team is too high. Wests verbatim answer: Way too high. The Lakers have names, and names don't win championships. When I look at this team, I see flaws.

With the inconsistent play, I'm starting to agree.

Every team has flaws. It's just about excelling at whatever you're good at.

This team is talented. But no team is perfect.

Can we stop judging the entire squad on its flaws until Nash gets back? Thanks.

Yeah, a $20M player producing like a D-Leaguer will usually make a team look bad.

I am so sick of Pau, too many excuses.

According to Pau they're fine cause they "almost won" despite him playing bad...

no, it won't. Our defense would be even worse and the fact Pau can't run this offense all year, whether it be his lack of effort or lack of legs, he won't eb able to sustain it and if he tried to by the off-season he'd be done.

Did he specify, or is he just saying what everyone can draw from a team that starts 7-8 with two superstars on their roster?
