Assuming all of our point guards come back, how do you see the new depth chart? I don't see Nash playing next year. If he comes back, it'll be this year to finish his basketball career on good terms.

 

Farmar's hamstring injury worries me. I hope it doesn't begin to become a recurrent problem. I'd like for Farmar to stay since he's our most athletic and fastest PG as well as being our best defender at the position. Also, he's able to create his own shot and his chemistry with Young and the bench was superb. 

 

Between Blake and Marshall, I don't know yet. Blake's obviously better offensively with his threes and he can be a pesky defender. He also has playoff experience. Problem is, he's 33 and has been injury prone. Marshall has been dishing out assists, but he's also played heavy minutes being our only legit PG. But when you factor in how little time he has spent with the team, he seems like the better facilitator. And he can be our future (not exactly starter) PG considering he's only 22.

 

I think this team needs one more athletic PG that can defend. Bledsoe would be perfect, but it will be nearly impossible to attain him since the Suns will match any offer. 



Marshall is a guy we definitely need to spend time on and keep developing, all he really needs is a jump shot, I have no problem having a guy like him even starting.  

Farmar I'd like to stay as well off the bench.  It at least takes care of a position in the off-season.  Marshall has everything but the consistent jump shot, but we got him for two years and should use him and develop him.

 

When Nash comes back I gather he'll come off the bench, Blake will probably go back to the starting lineup.  

As far as next year goes, if Marshall keeps improving or keeps playing well I can see us letting Blake walk if he wants too much money, other than that Blake would be a nice third option 'just in case' with our point guards with Marshall and Farmar being starting and bench pg. 


Now is the time to really start developing guys we want here for the next two seasons which is where Mitch is going to subsequently make his championship run.  So spending time developing Sacre and Kelly and Marshall is vital going forward.   Williams and Kaman to me are like placeholders till guys develop.  Sacre has developed nicely so thus Kaman won't play.  Kelly is still getting there but once he does, Williams won't play.    

It's quite a scenario because as well as Blake has played and how badly I want Nash to finish the season strong I don't want to compromise Marshall's development.

A team under .500 scored 137 points on the Laker's home court and won by 20+.

 

 

 

That is embarrassing...

Dozens of Auburn football fans watched the game from Staples Center's lower bowl on the night before the BCS championship game at the Rose Bowl.

 

Love seeing Auburn get the short end of the stick.

Dyan Cannon is throwing up in her mouth a little. (edit...surgically repaired mouth)

Damn bruh, you cold.

I just don't understand the purpose of the thread. Issue with what? Nothing happened.

Some people seemed to take exception to it in the gameday thread, but yet now here (not shockingly), all of a sudden they've either stayed quiet or changed their opinion on the matter influenced clearly (whether they admit it or not) by overwhelming popular opinion.

I never understand how fans say 'we' when the tea is good or great and "them" or 'The Lakers' when we struggle.

Psychology 101.

I wish we could have signed Nate.

We "could" have, but we didn't. Would have would've made more sense.


yo.

The Clippers are going nowhere because their personnel is mismatched to the style they want to play and the style they should play.  Also, any team that has no defensive anchor anywhere won't succeed, especially inside.

Guess who else the Clippers are signing to replace Chris Paul..

 

 

@BA_Turner: The Clippers are going to sign point guard Darius Morris to a contract today, per sources.

They could have gotten Seth Curry too. 

It's at times like this I'm glad we scooped up Marshall when we did.

R. Kelly says he and his teammates were not happy about Nate's little fun at their expense. A reporter then proceeds to call him & the team out on their boxing out and he responds...
