as big of an upgrade as Nash is he can get outplayed by Lawson or Curry or Chris Paul or whomever any night of the week. And Duhon has no shot against Bledsoe or Jarrett Jack or any guys like that.

So we start behind the curve with the first position we put out there.
Kobe/Meeks play well enough.
Metta,Pau,Jamison,Ebanks as our forwards ...I'm not impressed. Metta is playing better but still jacking shots. Pau is a shell of himself. Jamison and Ebanks haven't played any notable games in a while.



So, when you look at Kobe and Dwight trying to make up for these players, it's damn near impossible.

And then Kobe and Dwight still have to deal with guys who can play. DeAndre Jordan and Jamal Crawford, or Klay Thompson and Bogut or Tyreke and DeMarcus Cousins and that's just in our division.

The league has gotten a lot better, and the names on our team aren't as good as they once was.


The point is, much like the Knicks, we need another year to put the team around our Two Superstars and Nash

I would take most of the Clippers, Nuggets or Spurs bench over 3 of the Lakers' starters at this point.

These are our 3 weakest positions defensively and where we need help the most defensively. PF isn't so bad if Hill is playing the 4 and Metta can do ok there. But definitely the 1 and 3 spots are where we constantly get burned. We really need defensive help on the perimeter off the bench for Nash at PG and either at starting SF or backup SF. If Kobe stays at the 3 then possibly a defensive SG. The lack of defense and athleticism at these positions is one of reasons why they get lit up so much.

Agreed. He's defense isn't good but I wouldn't say he gets outplayed every night.

With good help defense and especially a dominant defensive center, I can live with Nash's defensive limtitations, given everything else he brings. The Lakers knew what they were getting when they traded for him. Its the other guys' defense that is the issue in my mind.

I agree but why such small font?
