You can counter speed with athleticism. It doesn't need to be young guys, just athletic players. This team is sorely lacking in that department. I was in favor of trying to get an athletic wing all summer, but the opportunity to get that type of player never came up.
Ok, this I can mostly agree with. I guess an athletic older player would be fine, but those guys tend to not be as athletic, not have the same stamina, or more injury prone as youthful players. I think athleticism and youth are almost interchangeable, with a few exceptions of course and vice versa(not all youth are athletic).
Maybe I should make this clear: when I say youth, I mean below 30. I realize non-lottery 1st or 2nd year players shouldn't be relied upon to contribute, so the age range is probably 24-29 for me.

Now they're finding out in quick fashion that you actually have to show up night in and night out when the target is on your back like it always is here in L.A..

That being said, I think they'll make it. They've yet to show me they're anything other than a 1st round exit though.
