Good defense by Kaman on Aldridge there. I like how he embraces the physicality better than Pau.


he also beats Pau up and down the court pretty consistently, when Pau's at half court Kaman is under the basket.  That may speak volumes. 


This off-season it wouldn't surprise me if the Lakers decide they'd rather pay Kaman over Pau if it came to picking which one to keep.  They both do essentially the same thing, both aren't MAJOR defenders but Kaman hustles more and embraces contact more.   Pau is the more skilled of the two but what Kaman lacks in terms of talent he makes up for in grit and right now that's what the Lakers do need.  

D'antoni pretty much insinuates this but if he talks about Pau again it's just gonna cause another firestorm and Kobe will just take more issue with him for talking about Pau.. but it's plain as day right now anyway, though I do expect Pau to bounce back and finish this game strong there are just some areas of grit and hustle Kaman will always have over him at this point in both of their careers.  Then again Sacre has more grit and hustle than Gasol at this point in their careers so that may not say much.

Alright so now we see who will wind up on the bench if Kaman and Pau start together.  Jordan Hill. 

And nice shot by Nash!

He might just end up making that MDI March fool's story real after all now.

Game was in jeopardy early when Batum hit a 3 to make it a 9 point game, but the Lakers as often close to usual, didn't bust a Philadelphia and just roll over. They kept fighting whether for themselves or for the team, but they kept fighting and thus we still have ourselves a game.

Well it's just impossible for Sacre, Hill, Kaman, Gasol and Kelly to all play and get viable minutes.  It's an impossibility which is what D'antoni was trying to say. 

Even tonight look, Wes Johnson and Jordan Hill haven't played a minute yet because of it X_X  

I'd sit Gasol the rest of the year so he can get himself right and let Kaman, Hill, Kelly get shine to be honest.  Gasol really doesn't have a reason to play anymore games he's given us pretty much what he'll give us. he should sit out and let us see more of these other guys imo.

Pau & Nash both shouldn't be playing any more games at this point imo, but what can ya' do? Farmar's coming back pretty soon though. Wonder if they'll likely sit Nash out then.

Probably.  Nash and Farmar actually both haven't played much this year.  nash I can understand as he has something to prove.  These "once in a while" games I don't mind from Nash as we haven't really seen him much and he DOES imo have to prove he can still do this.  Gasol we already know what he can do, I think we've seen him enough this year to gauge it.

Nicholas Young has seemed to be on fire since coming back. That player hater role really has him inspired.

R. Kelly looking so confident these days. Day & night from that massive slump or wall he hit a while back.

Nash 7/4/7 in 10 minutes.  

I think this is pretty much more evidence just how much NASH is the one that makes this offense work.  It's STEVE NASH'S offense.

Nash going to the back to get stretched instead of having to sit on the bench and get cold.
