We need Fast PG

Steve Blake was only good for bench PG.

But if he starts more gams when Steve Nash is hurt or injured,

Lakers is still slow old team.

Lakers need someone when Kobe Bryant's turnover the ball during isolation

A PG that can stop the opponent's fast break.

Or a PG who can score around 7~10 points.

I hope Lakers can get J.J. Barea, or WIll Bynum or Luke Ridnour or Nate Robinson?

Lakers should trade Steve blake or Pau Gasol to improve.

Fast PG's are over rated. I would prefer we get a slow PG with limited lateral movement. And we shouldn't over estimate the athleticism in youthfulness either. A battle tested PG thats been through the trenches of every game situation and has shown resiliency to his step.

Consider Doug Collins. He just had a new hip put in. This could make him a great addition and he could use his newer stronger hip to take charges and bump other PG's to create separation when posting up. Thoughts?

To some degree, yes. The thing is whenever the lakers go up against two quick guard one is gonna be burning us all night which has been the case all season.

 

Then again cant tell if your post is all sarcasm lol

it was my most sarcasm ever...lol.

 

But on the flip side, we had Sessions who was fast and increased our tempo and transition game imo helped defensively so other PGs wouldnt burn us off the dribble. And then MWP/Pau complained about him being to fast....so....idk wtf these guys want...lol

Let's get him back!  Maybe Mitch can dangle our 2018 and 2019 1st round draft picks in front of that idiot Jordan?

Ramon Sessions 12'-13'

61 Games

27.1 mins

14.4 pts

3.8 asts

2.8 reb

.408 FG%

 

His scoring is up about 2 ppg from when he was a Laker. But his apg with us was 6.2. Thats down for obvious reasons.

And for the same reasons his FG % with us was .479 so that dropped for obvious reasons.

 

But Blake has been doing a great job the last 20 games. So no issue there. Sessions wanted to start and then when Nash came here that wasnt gonna be a option in efforts to utilize KB's time left and pair the MVP duo in the back court.

 

But as for the future Sessions is 26. Nash is 39.

I don't want half-assed players to patch things up. Let these contracts expire, then we shall take a look at who's available.

Only slow pg I would ever want right now is Andre Miller.

 

Let me clarify: I don't want Andre Miller, just saying he's very good at what he does, and much better than Steve Blake

I miss Sessions.

 

Nash is an offensive player, but his defensive woes outweighs his usefulness on the offensive end.

He's always welcoming opposing players to their hoops. It's just so hard to ignore

Sessions is a wrose defender than Nash.

 

 

Seriously.

 

 

Sessions was the worse ever.

 

We need a better PERIMETER player.

 

It could be Wilson Chandler. 

 

 

I think NOW , even though Clark plays some 3, I think we are slow at the 3.

 

 

We need a guy who could play 2 or 3, with Meeks and Blake at times.

 

 

Kobe could rest more and we would close out games better because of that.

We had an excellent speedy PG in Ramon Sessions and we let him go last summer. It was a fatal mistake to pick a 38-year-old one-dimensional player over an athletic and young PG in his prime. 



Arguably the greatest franchise ever

The ONE position the Lakers needed was a quick point guard who could play defense.  Forget about scoring, they needed a shut down defender at the PG position. 

 

So what does Mitch Kupchak do?  He signs an old, aging, often injured Steve Nash, who could not play defense against my grandmother. 

 

Once the guard penetrates, everything else opens up, so its a quick pass to the wing or a cutter and its goodnight Irene. 

 

I saw this happen a dozen times yesterday with the Clippers and it is just ridiculoous. 

 

Do I totally agree with the original poster.  A fast PG who can play defense.  The Lakers have the other pieces they need to be competitive. 

 

Sessions was marginally a better defender than Nash, with SPG of .8.  Nash has .6.  I guess that is 30% better defensive player, though.

Lakers could have had Kyle Lowry. Young with defensive chops to boot.

 

But of course we sign the player way past his prime and give him 3 years at age 39.

This is why I still believe an attempt or atleast a 10 day contract on the infamous DELONTE WEST would have been an extremely low risk but high reward situation.  Not only could he possibly defend opposing guards well but he is a combo guard who can also potentially score as well.

Sessions was a MUCH better Defender than Nash and if we had a lineup of Sessions, Kobe, Clark Hill and Howard that would probably be way better defensively than any other possible line up now 

 

there's no way we can afford Wilson Chandlers contract
