Great article from Colin Ward-Henninger on the Lakers bench.
Examiner: The Los Angeles Lakers had one of the deepest, strongest, reserve units in basketball during the 2007-08 season. Led by breakout years by guards Sasha Vujacic and Jordan Farmar, the “bench mob” used to strike fear in the hearts of opponents and extend leads.
Last year they were downright poor, giving up leads left and right. The only bright spots were Lamar Odom, who was wildly inconsistent and started after Andrew Bynum’s injury, and Shannon Brown, who didn’t join the team until the end of the season.
This season did not start off well in Tuesday night’s win over the Los Angeles Clippers, with the bench giving up yet another lead.
