Oh my ****in god,Nash is out till december and some fans Are asking for a new point guard...this panic is ridicolous.we have already three pgs,that aren't very good,but there's no guards left
Our roster on paper was so nice, but these PG injuries and coaching/offensive (and even defensive) changes have them all confused. Once they figure out what kind of team they are (and get rid of Pau for a more athletic, quick big man) then they'll win more consistently.
Miami didn't win right out of the gate when they got LeBaby and Bosh. They were struggling into mid-season if I remember correctly. Regardless, people thought they couldn't play together and that there was too much star power on the roster. Well, they got to the finals 2 years in a row, right? I think the Lakers will be fine. Here's to hoping for Atlanta to change their minds on J-smoove.

Bucher's a joke.
Duhon seems very comfortable in the offense [ unlike many others with a learning curve ], he is shooting pretty darn well [ 44 FG%; 39 3PT% ], and he is taking care of the ball -- assist-to-TO ratio of greater than 4-to-1 -- so he is an asset to be exploited, at least for now. Morris can contribute, too [ perhaps by playing some 2 guard ], but he should probably be handling the ball a tad less until he has a fuller grasp on all things offense, both macro and micro ...
The Lakers need to cut TOs as a team down from 17-18 a game to 10-14 per contest and the wins will start to mount, especially if guys like Morris, Jamison, and Hill can stop being sucked down into the FT shooting 'abyss' that is Dwight Howard [ even Pau needs to shoot FTs better than 76%, although Gasol cracking 80% again may be a pipe dream ]. The Lakers do not usually get much in the way of breaks from NBA officials, so when the referees actually are sending L. A. to the line, the players need to damn well step up and produce ...
