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
Dwight WHO??? Good riddance. Rumblings of Carmelo (and others surely to follow) combined with visions of 3 or 4 more years watching Mamba going Vino next to a crop of young athletic ballers makes the precious blinding light at the end of the tunnel glare off of my newly minted shiny happiness!!! #redemption 4 Swaggy P, Pau, Nash, Wes Johnson, Farmar and Lakers as a team and FA destination!
