Lets say they all come back at nearly the same time.
Will politics dictate Nash play?
If Kendall continues to be a young project, who sacrifices the most?
Will Blake ever play?

Can we keep Swaggy P happy? We do want him to OPT IN.
And will we start upsetting teams if they can remain healthy , and obviously which guards would you trade ?

Swaggy P will stay on the bench regardless, that's the role he seems to want the most over starting. 

 

Xavier will continue to be a prospect.

It depends on how well X progresses with his jump shot.  We have 4 point guards now 

Nash
Blake

Marshall
Farmar

 

I'd assume once Blake gets back if he remains healthy he'll be starting, and Nash or Farmar will be coming off the bench.  

 

X to me will always be in the rotation somehow.  After the trade deadline things will become a little more clear.  X seems safe at the 3 spot, Kelly seems safe at the 4 spot or the 3 spot depending,  

We have a lot of depth but I'd assume Blake will start, and depending on Farmar's health Marshall will get some time.  I really don't want to compromise his development so I hope he gets time on Nash and Blake's return.


 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

I doubt Nash ever comes back. If Marshall keeps on putting up 10+ assists a night, he'll get minutes.

LeBron James will NOT leave the Miami Heat.

Nash has to go. MDA has to love the way KM distributes the rock.

100000% sure if nash came back he would start. As for mpg..  not sure but he will start. But if marsh keeps playing good or even better i can see blake and farmar getting a lot less time because that what MDA does. Goes with whats hot , then one bad game he'll throw KM in the dogg house because we have 3 PG's

Farmar's injury will be chronic.  Hamstring injuries never heal without bringing about other injuries or recurring, he's done.

 

Nash, I love the guy, but he has no business playing any more.

 

Blake will go to a backup role but run away as soon as he can to a team that uses him properly and values him.  And when he does, good for him, he deserves better than this train wreck.

 

Nick Young will opt in to stay with the Lakers no matter what.  This has been his dream for a long time.

 

And no matter, the health, this team won't upset anyone.  The foundation, culture and system is flawed, you can't do anything when that's broken.

Fido, I know you've seen a lot if ball, but u don't know if Farmar won't be healed or if Nash cant contribute.

Has anyone seen Manu play this season.

I feel like Farmar will get back. But Nash, not so much.

How have the Lakers been misusing Blake?

Players can bounce back, but the odds aren't good.  And since Farmar has already re-aggravated his injury this quickly, it's not a good sign.


Also, Popovich's system and style don't run players into the ground for the sake of higher scores.  That makes a huge difference.  This system is unstructured and far too loose for players to not over-exert themselves.  You run Ginobili in this ragtag ridiculousness and his injury would remain chronic as well.

 

Anyone played in this system is mis-used.  It's basketball for infants, no structure no system, just run fast and shoot.  That's not going to help any player succeed for anything longer than the short term.  this is now the 4th team it's been seen on, same results every time.

Blake will be the starting PG. The guy is doing everything in his power to come back stronger, even trained his left arm. I hope Marshall isn't forgotten and gets minutes in some way.

Nash had a bad back in Dallas

Amare was healthier as a Sun than Knick

Barbosa

Bell

Marion all had good health there

 

 

Fido, please stop with the broad generalizations.

 

Blake hurt his elbow this season, but with Brown it was something else and with Phil something else

 

 

 

Hamstrings are a common injury and re-injury type situation

 

 

Kobe has hurt himself at the end of the season or playoffs for at least 3 or 4 years in a row

 

Who else? Oh yeah, Xavier was D'Antoni's fault...

This wasn't a doorway for you to start up your pro-D'Antoni rants or some other falderall you feel fit to try and sell.  They were healthy yes, because it was a time and space where everything fell into place.  However, that time has passed and the system you (and apparently the Lakers) are so in love with has proven two other times, after that team got run into the ground by stronger systems and coaches  that it does not work and it runs players into the ground.

 

Phoenix was lightning in a bottle (mostly due to Nash being at the top of his game), not the consistent truth.

 

You asked for opinion, I gave you mine based on history and knowledge of injuries and how professional sports work.
