Yeah, I am starting to worry that maybe we wasted half of our mini-MLE on this guy. He doesn't seem to have any fortitude. If things don't go his way right away, he just fades away...HATE THAT.
DJO was impressive BOTH as a scorer AND handling the ball and getting people open passes...if he wasn't playing with Reeves Nelson and Aguilar and Goudelock, I think he would have been even more free to do damage. I think DJO is almost getting the nod for backup 1 from me after this look...I know it is premature, but what other back up PG can offer us Youth, Athleticism, Speed, HANDLE....AND SCORING??
It's premature, but I am definitely already leaning toward a back up back court of DJO/CDR. Both hustle, play good D, RESPOND TO ADVERSITY WITH INCREASED INTENSITY, and demonstrate a winning attitude.
Also, Sacre is going to be an EXCELLENT bench big, IF HE EVER GETS RESPECT FROM THE REFS
Canter was just uprooting him, culminating in that (what I thought was a FLAGRANT) offensive foul that wasn't called. The refs were CERTAINLY in mid-season anti-laker form in the third quarter
Nash + Howard + Bryant + Artest + Gasol + Jamison + Meeks - Hill - Clark = 33-31? In Playoff race but lots of work left to save season, Lakers could be biggest sports bust of all time. Phil IS NOT walking through that door! D'Antoni still won't play more than 8. Dwight Howard's FT% sinking fast. Kobe's working too hard. Pau cap trade? Clark 2 Expensive 2 keep? MWP amnesty? Projected '12-'13 Record 43-39. Most...Disappointing...Ever!
