Nash and Blake should split minutes down the middle next season. I think it's established they can't handle playing minutes in the mid 30s every night. Have each play 24 minutes at PG. Stop playing Blake at SG in general.

I agree that Nas hand Blake should split minutes.

But you see here's the thing.  If Meeks isn't hitting shots, either Nash, either Blake, or either Kobe is going to have to come in early.

We'll see more of the same next year unless we get a stronger bench 2 and 3 if we want to see minutes actually go down.

Nash's minutes I'm not worried about with Blake, it's Kobe's minutes I'm worried about.

But I'll happily say when we have a bench that allows Kobe to play as many minutes as Nash(in the 30s)... we'll be where I want them to be.


 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

Kind of ironic how the entire season, people were complaining about the lack of youth on the team. Well it looks like Goudelock and Morris will be starting instead of Kobe and Nash.

Yeah, but there is a difference between youth and not good youth.

We really need Morris and Goudelock to have career games. Whats Morris and Goudelocks' career highs, like 15 apiece? Yeah were gonna need them to have atleast that if we want a shot. It's not impossible, and I think if they have the right mind set coming in to the game, they can actually contribute and help us get a shot at winning. Offense isn't really the major problem though, its closing out quarters, and closing out on shooters, doesn't matter who you are. Stopping Ginobli and Bonner is key, Tony and Timmy are gonna get theres whether we like it or not.

In terms of this series, Blake really is the only loss though. Nash was awful in the first 2 games. Meeks has just been bad for awhile.

 

The Lakers other options are awful, but they're healthy at least. Maybe they'll be motivated by the fact that aren't in the rotation and play well. It may be really their last chance to show something before they become FAs. Morris and Duhon had a few good games when Nash was injured. Nash wasn't going to play well at all. He's broken down, It's a miracle he actually played based on the stuff we've heard about him.

 

It's reaching at this point, but I think Nash had a 0% chance of playing well. Maybe Duhon has a .000000001% chance.

I'm shocked Mitch continues to avoid criticism from most people here.

Perhaps Mitch is mostly just a puppet now with Jimmy pulling the strings.

I don't buy it. I bet ownership has a big role when it comes to big moves like the Dwight Howard trade, but the GM has to be in charge of the roster overall. He's missed out on filling out the roster since he's been here. Even when the Lakers were winning titles, they were very top heavy.

 

What else is he there for if he doesn't have any control over roster moves?

It is difficult to put the blame on Mitch. I mean, I don't blame him at all for the moves that he made this past summer. If you told me last year that we would acquire Dwight, Steve Nash, Jodie Meeks, and Antawn Jamison while keeping Jordan Hill and getting a huge surprise from Earl Clark, I would think instant championship. On paper, that should be a very dangerous team. Unfortunately, age and injuries tooks its toll and things just didn't work out.

You have to plan for things like injury risk and age though. The Lakers should've done a better job filling out the roster with more durable players, especially after hiring D'Antoni. Kupchak also happens to get a ton of players who aren't very consistent. At some point, his track record just isn't good. Every team misses from time to time, even the Spurs and Thunder. But, the Lakers have had years upon years of bad supporting casts.

 

Many teams have injuries throughout the season and survive them just fine. There's a reason why 13 players are now allowed on an active roster. Good teams like the Spurs can survive them. The Lakers couldn't.

He apparently only has control over the roster moves that fans like.  The ones the fans hate Jimmy "obviously" made by himself
