Who do you guys think has been the most impressive overall off the bench? Farmar? Odom? Ariza? Someone else?

I'm going with Ariza. His defense has been tremendous in the first couple of games, and he's draining his shots consistently!

Here's his stats for the first two games:

vs. Blazers: 4/7 shooting (2/2 threes), 11 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 2 blocks
@ Clippers: 4/7 shooting (2/3 threes), 11 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal

I agree Trev is really improved his game, coming into the season he only hit 9 three pointers in his career. Shows he really worked on his shot in the off-season.

To me, I've been impressed with Derek Fisher attacking the basket. The overall Laker squad has been impressive, even Luke had some good moments in there. I'd like to see Bynum start finding his offensive game though.

Ariza definitely. I already knew what to expect from Lamar, Sasha, and Jordan, but Ariza I was still iffy on even with all the praise he got for his off-season improvement. Jordan has also surpassed my expectations, just not as much as Trevor.

Ariza/Mihm both have improved greatly. Mihm has done well so far. Hopefully he can consistently do well for this team.

Odom? No way, lol, I like Odom, but he's still not making those jumpers consistently whatsoever enough for me, Ariza as said hands down.

Farmar's close, but with Ariza's top notch defense along with his offensive game drilling jumpers, it's too much.

Although mostly in garbage time indeed, nonetheless, Mihm has impressed a bit too.

I thought Ariza and Farmar were the most impressive. It's great seeing Ariza again especially when we missed him last season. Farmar has improved so much and I'd like to see him continue to improve.

i say farmar, to me he is the leader of this team, and to me that doesnt bode to well for odom, but i didnt pick ariza bcuz i feel farmar feeds him perfectly.
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

Trevor has impressed. Farmar has played better than he did last year but I don't think he's there yet.

Ariza has impressed me with how consistent his jumper is (well, as consistent you can get in two games) and it reflects how much work he's put in over the summer. I agree with Farmar being close, but not there yet even though he also has improved from last season.

I said the entire Laker squad has been impressive, but Derek Fisher has been a stand out, meaning that I think the entire bench has been impressive as well.

Lakers held the Blazers and Clippers to 34% and 38% shooting. Scary.

Definitely Ariza. He is trying to play his way into the starting line up. Although, I think he will do better with the back up squad.
