Blake, duhon, Morris, Meeks

Mwp, and Jamison?

Every championship contender goes two deep some times 3 deep

Look at the Knicks they passed on being superstar heavy signing Jeremy Lin and they got Kidd, Felton, shumpert, prigioni, brewer, jr smith

They go 3 to 4 deep at the 3

Okc and clippers have backup squads that can play with r starting squad

So we r too superstar and big heavy

Boston has same problem paying old guys too much money 1 young star and depth at guard Bradley lee Barbosa terry but no bigs.

Lakers did a horrible job building the bench that's why we gas out and lose games late.

Won't win till we get depth

This Lakers team needs a massive reconstruction process as soon as possible.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

The problem is we don't have any lock down defenders or athletic wing players who can run and shoot that's the problem with this team
Duhon
Meeks
Blake
Jamison
MWP
are all done for as I'm concerned... they can't defend or make plays for others and don't hustle AT ALL it's sad to say our team was much better last year than this year... just look at the record

We weren't that deep when we won back in 2009 and 2010. The starting lineup sure as hell wasn't as talented as it is now. We have the talent. Just terrible chemistry.

There is a fine line between an all star laden/veteran/former champions/ mature team and a just plain old team. The Lakers have crossed the line. The stars are old and the subs are bad.

Those squads were more athletic and had a motivated Gasol and Phil.

No, the biggest problem is that we look for three's from players who can't shoot, instead of playing to our strength inside.

Chemistry is a pressing issue, but we have bigger concerns right now:
1. Poor coaching
2. Lack of attitude and focus
3. Terrible transition D
4. Weak perimeter D
5. Streaky and inconsistent shooting
6. Poor bench production
7. Pau Gasol
8. Howard's FTs

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

they have too many PGs that are not the type of athletic super fast PG that can score & finish at the rim (which LA desperately needs)
They have no other SG besides Kobe (since Coach D refuses to use Ebanks at SG)
They have no Spot up/catch & shoot SFs (which is a recipe for disaster in Coach D system & utilizing D12 in post)

What is the infatuation with Ebanks? He is garbage. It's arguable that Duhon may be the worst backup PG in the league. As bad as the bench is, when Duhon's defender sags off to double team one of the other scrubs, the bench is even worse. The coach is a hack and completely useless. Like someone else posted, they shoot too many 3s and have putrid defense on the perimeter. If the lakers could use Duhon's partially guaranteed contract for next year as an attractive partial expiring contract and then use Ebanks and his expiring contract, maybe they can get a decent backup something.

Ebanks plays better D than any of the bench players! When he gets meaningful mins he plays well on both sides of the ball.

Our last two title teams didn't exactly have a bench with depth, but you are correct with the problems.

Backup point guard is a problem along with our backup small forward. Our backup SG, Meeks, isn't a problem as long as he understands to just shoot and do nothing else. It seems to me that whenever he tries to attack the basket or be a playmaker, it makes his shot go south.

I still believe that the back up point guard is the most glaring issue. When Duhon or Morris come in, they are unable to run the offense correctly so the team becomes stagnant.

If we could add a quality backup PG and back up wing, that will help this team instantly.

backup pg is the biggest issue. because our 2nd unit needs offense off the dribble. but, that doesnt have to come from a backup pg(thats just most common),,,a player who can create offense off the dribble makes a whole unit better;every player.

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