Here's an article authored by Kevin Ding of the OC Register (my favorite along with Mark Heisler). He has convinced me that we don't need to bring in another guard yet.
Also, I was thinking about the concept of 96 minutes. Bynum, Gasol and LO essentially divvy up 96 minutes among the 3 of them at the 4-5 positions. What's wrong with Fish, Sasha and Kobe divvying up 96 minutes at the 1-2 positions? Fish's minutes can still be limited and Sasha can really ratchet up his game if he gets 25-32 minutes a game. Do we really need another guard?
I like how Sasha has stepped up as of late, he's not a true point guard, but we don't need one in the triangle offense. Sasha makes Luke expandable. I am unsure if the Lakers will make a move for a point guard, but I think a quick, backup guard like Speedy Claxton and or a Ty Lue would be a good thing. We need some quickness on the perimeter (it's unfortunate that Lindsey Hunter is unavailable, he's a good defender and knows the triangle)
I am still in favor of trying to "steal" Kirk Hinrich from the Bulls.
Let me just remind you all of the "heavy" minutes Fish was playing against Memphis and Orlando because the players on the bench were struggling to get the job done (all road games), we still need a backup point guard that can help us defensively...
Sasha has been playing well as of late, good article. happy New Year to all of you.
