Career 9 points per game, 36% 3PT. Shooting 42% from 3s this year, hes been closing games out at PG off the bench instead of Jeremy Lin, been doing that for weeks (including the game where we got beat at Houston). He hand an off year last year because of Linsanity and the lockout ottherwise 3 out of hte 4 years hes been rock solid

He was the 29th pick in the NBA Draft...the Lakers pick. We sold that pick for $3 mil and a 2011 2nd rounder, which turned out to be Andrew Goudelock

Not whining about spilled milk here but I remember in 2009 and 2010 lot of people were asking to look for a point guard who can create and shoot 3s and we basically gave that guy away and got someone else just like him and cut him

Heres how Douglas is doing his last 5 games facing teams like us, San Antonio twice and Boston

29 mins, 12.6 pts, 2.2 assists 58% 3s

Just something to think about. We've done well with trades and an occasional FA signing (Artest, Jamison, Meeks) but drafting has been terrible

I know 2nd rounders and late 1st rounders aren't exactly gold mines but when you want to be the best and when you have limited flexibility due to a high paying roster wouldn't you use your draft picks wisely instead of selling them away.

^ he was bad last year. Otherwise he's been solid. Hes a very good bench player not a starter someone like that is what we need.

You could be more mad that we didn't take Isaiah Thomas.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

The problem with that stuff is when you get one good guy out of those draft picks you usually get 4 or 5 bad ones and that adds up to a bad team.
