Right now Bynum and Odom are playing 29 and 26 minutes per game and that's just not enough for a team's third and fourth best players.

I realize Odom is somewhat of a liability with his perimeter point shooting but it's not like our other SFs have lit it up from outside. Plus Pau can play SF on offense when LO is in.

Frankly I wonder why were paying them 30 mill a year to be glorified role players.

i think that playing odom with gasol and bynum will work. when gasol came in odom played great around him, now he has even more pressure lifted off his shoulders by having bynum around

Pau SF!?

We aren't in the position to slide these possibilities though....I like the idea of LO coming in for Andrew or Pau with Pau going Center.

for some reason, our offense (after we got pau) was so much more fluid then it is in this early part of the season in my opinion. we need to establish andrew in the post more, he doesnt get enough touches near the basket

I agree they should go to the big lineup, LO will have a chance to play the point forward role and he might benefit from it.

Well I'm sure they've tried this during training camp, and I think the coaches have their reasons for not trying during the season.

Our strength is our depth, we shouldnt burn anyone out, especially HUGE guys like Bynum. Our team is fine, we just arent playing our best ball yet, and Detroit was on, thats it.

Radman is still a better shooter at the 3 than Lamar...

Plus Lamar will get the ball at the 2nd unit and they love to run, which is a perfect fit for his style...
