I just hope the Lakers are willing to be patient with Kareem after his rookie season. I dunno, there's just something about him we just haven't seen yet. His college game was great, and I think since the pressure was on him, bein on the 3 time world champions, playin behind Kobe and Shaq, it kinda got to him. At times he had a lil' spark, but other than that he barely got enuff time to improve. Phil had him in most games at PG, which wasn't right. He was a rookie and doesn't have the ball handlin skills, the passing skills, or the court vision to be a PG any time soon.
Pargo had nothing to lose, since he was undrafted. He REALLY stepped up, and what I liked the most about him, is that he always tried to play D along with Kareem. At least they both gave an effort, rather than to just give up, u know? Pargo was barely activated towards the middle of the season, and I don't know why Murray wasn't taken off the roster sooner.
