    I like McRoberts too, but he needs to learn how to play smart. I don't think Brown trusts him because he gets out of control and makes terrible decisions.


    You maybe right on this, but it doesn't excuse the fact that these guys are missing wide open shots. I believe the problem with teh bench is that there's not a guy like Odom who can create shots for himself and others. That would free up Barnes to slash and Blake to sit on the three point line. It's probably too much to ask of Blake and Co. to generate offense w/o Kobe or Gasol on the floor.

    The Lakers would have to cut a couple players to bring in 4 guys. This would also make future deals more difficult.

    I also think we should stop signing and trading for mid-level/solid/average/veteran players. They almost always seem to be a waste. It looks like LA is getting a good deal until 5 games into the season. They take up salary room and prevent LA from trading for or signing talent.
    Look at all the Lakers signings from 2008-2011

    I read an article once about Lamar. In the article he talked about how much he loved the beach, being near the beach, and how the beach gave him energy. He went on to say that if he didn't live near the beach that he would become depressed. Somehow this always stuck with me and when he was traded to Dallas I thought to myself that this wouldn't end well.

    The guy has been pretty soft his entire career. He has always had top star talent, but never had the kill instinct to be an alpha dog.

    Convincing Laker win over the Heat. Kobe hitting some really tough shots.

    My take-away is how they ran the offense when Kobe sat-- through Bynum. Bynum did a great job waiting out the double team and making the smart pass. Of course, no one on the court was big enough to guard him so he had a field day down low.
