The Lakers; a whole lot of smoke and mirrors
posted at 7/24/2012 2:53 PM EDT
Jamison, good offensive player, no defense
Nash, great player on last legs... no defense
Metta Wood head, who knows/questionable everything
Hill, good rebounder
Gasol, still solid/ top player when motivated/ Does he really want to be there?
Bynum, One of the best Centers, when motivated/questionable attitude when things don't go right. Do you think shopping him around will help?
Kobe, was one of the best, still top ten, not a clutch shooter anymore(if ever)
Bench, Hill, Goudelocks, ebanks, Murphy, and Johnson, ???
Don't forget that the Lakers’ defense collapsed at the end of the regular season and in the two
playoff series. Last year they got blown
out several times..Not to mention the sweep by Dallas the year before.
On Paper they are a competive group. But when things are tough, their true colors are revealted. I predict they will have a decent regular season, but will falter in the playoffs...sound familiar?
I don't see any additions that will change this dowhill trend. Now if they sign
Howard, that's another story....Did he sign already??http://nba-point-forward.si.com/2012/07/18/antawn-jamison-los-angeles-lakers-free-agency/
