While Collison would be great and would be more than the Lakers can ask for in a mid-season free agency pick up, I still have concerns.
- He's been out of the game, trying out a career that has nothing to do with basketball. At least when Melo was gone, he was trying to get back into the league. What kind of shape is Collison in? And, does mentally being away from basketball affect him?
- I really don't want to wait that long. LeBron is doing so much to carry this team, and the supporting cast is getting worse and worse. The Lakers looked like complete trash out there today against the Pistons even with AD out there in no-LeBron lineups.
- I want a more prolific scorer. Collison will help with the play-making and shooting, but he's never really been the kind of guy that puts up a lot of points. I think the Lakers need someone beyond LeBron and AD who can put up a lot of points. We can't really trust Kuzma right now.
