Nba.com: With Steve Blake sidelined by a rib injury, the Lakers have turned to their second-round pick out of the College of Charleston. And the rookie has responded in a big way. In his last four games, Goudelock has averaged 11.5 points on 50 percent shooting (17-for-34 FGs, 8-for-14 on 3s) and has been a real bright spot for the Lakers bench in their recent struggles. The Lakers are reportedly looking for backcourt help (Gilbert Arenas, Mo Williams and Morris Peterson have all been mentioned), but the rookie guard has been aggressive and looks to be a potentially nice pick out of the second round. If he continues to see the backup minutes and hit shots like Video this one (nice tear drop against Clippers), he could stick around The Ladder.
Goudelock has just earned 8th spot on the nba rookie ladder. Glad to see that, he earned it.Anyway, he can be our first real steal from 2nd round since Nick the quick.
Hope so. We need it, desperately. He can help the team as much as he can help our cap. Good luck Goudelock
I kinda disagree with us not having a second round steal since Nick. IMO, any second rounder that ends up being a rotation player (or even a starter) for at least a year or two should be considered a great pick. And with that said, Luke Walton was probably a steal in the second round.
Redd, Ginobili, Millsap, Mo Will, Monta, Scola, Arenas, Boozer = real 2nd round steals. I know they were like 1 in the milion but even those strange things happens each year. And it seems like it doesn't happen here anymore.
Ronny, Luke, even Sasha, Farmar (both late first rounders) were decent at most, that ain't no steal imo.
