Last year everybody was like "we need veterans we are in win now mode and we can't have too many young players cause we aren't rebuilding"

This year "we need young players because we have to many old and slow players"

LOL and people said I was wrong this whole time smh... we might as well develop the little young talent we have in Morris and look to get a small forward or maybe a combo guard to play with meeks

Morris hasn't developed into [expletive] so scratch that

Morris is wildly inconsistent. He played great against Dallas and the last game against New Orleans, but did absolutely positively nothing against Houston and Orlando. He needs to develop some type of consistency with his game.

Well Id rather play Duhon and Blake over Morris because they are the better players and will result in more wins.

Like last year, I'm just waiting for roster moves.

I have no faith in this team doing anything as is.

Starts with D12 free throw

D12 Free throw kills lakers momentum and confidence to finish the game

D12 Free throws gives the lakers pressure


Lakers are not bad finisher but this year they are bad finisher


I said many many times that D12 was not the answer that everyone swore he was, not wishing Bynum back but he did a good job with free throws, huh? Many other areas were lacking. maturity leading the group. This team I use that word very loosely, has an identity issue not every player "knows" what their role is. And if they do they don't execute it. lack if nergy on defense and laziness on offense. I'm hoping Nashs return will spark something. I also have been waiting for a coach to get upset when these blokes don't do what they are supposed to. throw a chair something to show emotion.

U cant truly evaluate the team until the entire roster especially the starting 5 are healthy & on the court together for multiple gms. for now its still a science project

Don't know why you think Morris coming off the bench is such a bad thing.

Duhon understands the offense better. It's obvious and Morris works better when he provides a spark with the bench unit when he differs and waits for the spot up three. What he did in the 2nd half against New Orleans is what he would be most effective doing for this team and it showed that. He was finally looking for Meeks, and spotting up waiting for the pass to hit the three as well as when he drove he was looking to throw a controlled pass.

This is the type of things he should do with the bench unit especially while he's learning this offense.


Duhon already knows the offense and is a veteran with it and has shown to my EYES that he is a better fit for the starting lineup as I SAW him throw out 8 assists and then throw out 10 assists and I saw Morris go through the motions trying to get his starting position back becoming a ball stopper and then I SAW Kobe get into him about it and tell him to wait to be differed to and let the game come to him and I SAW Morris listen and get a wide open three at the end of the 3rd with which him and Kobe celebrated. I SAW then that Morris seemed to "get it" after that point and started to enjoy the role he was given playing with LOADS more confidence than he did at first.


What that tells me is that Morris should embrace being someone with the bench that differs to others(like Meeks), drives in control looking to pass to the open center or player and waits for the spot up three point shot instead of trying to force his own.

I SAW that Morris MOST effective when he plays this way and he should stay with it and harness that.


Are you going to deny that?

morris is getting shook all across the court by westbrook, i told u hes easily shook,,,i see it everygame. hes just a decent defender because of effort

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

Blake and Duhon.

Also, pg position is not only about defense but it is also about creating, passing, dribbling and shooting. Duhon and Blake are all better than Morris at those things and have higher basketball IQs

Lakers need perimeter D, particularly on the ball. Like almost every game, that was the difference against OKC. You not be able to guard Durant, but better perimeter D can at least contain him a bit more.

They got everything easy during that run in the 2nd quarter. At that point, you need to have good individual defenders. Metta simply isn't good enough at that anymore.

Honestly, I say the same thing after almost every loss. It's baffling that nothing has happened about it. It would make the Lakers so much better.

Honestly, I know its been brought up before, but the only bench solution we have to help with perimeter defense is DELONTE WEST!
West, Meeks, Jamison would spread the floor for the second team tremendously.
