^^What we'd like and what we will see are going to be two different things unfortunately..... Fisher is going to start for this team this season unless we get a top flight point guard..... which is unlikely. Even if we get that point guard, he's still going to play significant minutes..... probably at the expense of Blake. He is a "sage" of the team and is very well respected and will have to step aside this year. I do think we will buy him out in the off season or find another way to move him into the front office.....

Kid's got moxie... If the organization brings in Arenas or Smith, it will curtail his development unless said potential signees play the 3 spot.

When G-Lock plays 20+ mins he's astonishingly good.

Article about 2 weeks old but good stuff..

Ideally, Brown wanted to have Goudelock playing in the backup shooting guard role with Steve Blake serving as the substitute point guard. Brown tried it for a while, then went in another direction after Blake suffered a rib/sternum injury.

Goudelock stepped in as Derek Fisher's backup at the point the past four games.
"He's got that grit, he's got that will to perform well," Bryant said of Goudelock. "He's extremely aggressive. That's what mambas are. He's definitely got that DNA. Throw it up. Put that ball in the hole."

Goudelock was surprised by the reaction on Twitter and elsewhere to his new nickname. He was called G-Lock while he was a standout at the College of Charleston. Others called him Drew, but that was confusing when he joined the Lakers. Andrew Bynum, a 7-foot center, is known as Drew to his teammates.

"It shocked me," Goudelock said of Bryant's nickname for him. "He doesn't give me many compliments in practice. He's a pretty closed- mouthed guy when it comes to emotions and things like that. For him to show any emotions toward me was a thrill."

Goudelock can do a pretty fair imitation of Bryant with the ball in his hands. What he can't do is mimic the hissing snake noise Bryant makes when he wants his teammates to pass him the ball.

He tried it and failed miserably, cracking up Brown, Bryant and the rest of the Lakers after Tuesday's game.

"I can't do it," Goudelock said. "I tried it and it didn't work out too well."

Scorer's mentality. Very nice form on his outside shot. Supremely confident. Riles used to say "shoot it up or sleep in the streets" back in the day. Goudelock definitely fits the bill. If he can only develop a mid-range game, he'd be even more capable.

Meanwhile, the squad's former backup at the position is accumulating DNP's in The Desert.

There were a couple mid-range curl screens called for him earlier in the year that he executed well. Kinda Rip Hamilton-esque. We haven't done much of that since.

^At this point, the offense is still a work in progress or a jumbled mess not to mention Blake's absence caused a ripple effect. Brown still has not settled on a consistent rotation as well.

Give him 20min and you'll get +10pts/game every night !!

Sadly, he's our most consistent scorer off the bench

I still can't get over how money he is with the floater. :wow: If I had to guess he's hitting 75 - 80% of them? Who doesn't enjoy the hell out of watching this kids's game, moves, confidence for a rookie and that sweet, rapid-fire, great looking J. :jam2: :jam2: :jam2:

Fish do the honorable thing and suit up in a shirt/tie.....just stealing good minutes from this guy. Blake is no starter but I'd live with him starting with Glock the main backup pg/sg. Fish should only play 10mins or so.

Could Goudelock do what Jeremy Lin's doing?

Postby Doberman on Wed Feb 15, 2012 3:27 pm

The reason I pose this question if because 6 games ago, Lin wasn't even considered NBA material. Obviously that's false. He just needed a chance. There are probably a few of these "scrubs" in the league that haven't really been given the chance to prove themselves. Not just a chance to prove they're successful, but outright prove that they're "failures" and not worthy of a starting job.

With Goudelock, we KNOW he can shoot. From anywhere. He's not as natural a PG as Lin, but if you look at his stats from college and D-league, it shows (like Lin) that he gets alot of assists AND turnovers.

If we just bench Fisher and play Goudelock for 35 mpg, do you think he can averaged 27 ppg and 9 apg like Lin?

Well it could go to the Jeremy Lin thread too. Since it's a very specific topic, I thought it could use its own thread.

If I told you 2 weeks ago that Jeremy Lin could average 27/9 as a starter, would you have believed me? You don't think Goudelock could put up some sick numbers with playing time? He had 10 points last night in just 13 minutes.

Not on this team with Bryant, Gasol, and Bynum. Lin is putting up big numbers because Stoudamire and Anthony have been out. Once they get back his numbers will go down.

Stoudamire was back in the last game and both he and Lin scored 20+. I think it also depends on the system. Lin thrived because he was suited to the system of d'Antoni. With the Lakers, he probably wouldn't have performed at such a level.

Goudelock is a shooting guard mentality, inj a point guard's body. He's a good pick up for where we got him, and definetly has skills, but I can't tell you how much better Lin is as a passer, and a distributor of the ball. There were 2-3 possessions where Bynum was widen open, and he did nothing. I could even sense Bynum getting frustrated with it. Again, nice offense off the bench, but he's nothing like Lin as a player...unfortunately!

'Tis a shame he dropped off the Rookie Ladder. Imagine if he averaged 32 mins a game like almost everyone on that list. He would score a lot more than most people think.
