I like the Lakers but there's no way in hell they will win a Championship with that weak arse bench.
Antwan Jameson (Shell of his former self)
Jordan Hill (Nice player but nothing more than an energy guy)
How can you build a team with a bench this putrid? The Lakers have a great starting 5 but with this bench, I don't see how they can get out of the WCF. Will they make any moves to sure up their bench? Bunch of scrubs and you have to have a decent bench not only for the playoffs but to rest your players during the season so they'll be more fresh for the playoffs.
Anyways, they better make some moves and do something with this bench.. Teams like OKC, Miami, Boston, NYK, etc... All have a bench that is a major and underrated aspect to winning a 'Ship.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Nah the bench is a way bigger issue.. Lakers won with Shaq, weak bench will kill you
I think they'll be fine. They have a better bench than last year. They choked two games away in that series with OKC last season. I have a little more faith in this squad.

Agree to disagree.. That bench is CRAP. Not a championship team with that bench.. No way.. Just my opinion and I honestly like the Lakers.. I cannot pick the Lakers to even get out the WCF with that bench.
As soon as the team developes an identity the bench will follow suit. Hard to cap on the bench when the starters took the first 5 games off this season.
The lakers will get a shooter at some point. I can see the lakers making it to the finals with there roster they have now. Jordan hill can bang with any back up big man in the west. Jamison can hit some shots. The key is metta if he can continue to score the lakers will be hard to handle imo
Again.. Agree to disagree.. If Jordan Hill and a washed up Jameson is your argument.. You have some Purple and Gold shades on.
Hell the other L.A. team has Jamal Crawford, Bledsoe and Odom.. Now they have a legit bench.
Lmao it was good enough to list Jamal and Bledsoe but throwing Odom, the worst basketball player in the NBA is actually a negative for your argument.
Yeah you might be correct lol.. He has the talent though
Odom >>> Jamison
The Lakers can piss off. Geaux Hornets

I don't know man. Think you're overrating that bench by a ton
Has Darius Morris been starting? I thought he was a bench player for them as well.
Don't bash Ebanks like that.
saw Meeks play in high school, dude was good
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
College also. Pros? He sucks. Not a consistent enough outside shooter.
Nash and Steve Blake are injured.
D-Mo has been playing alright though, good to see his horrible decision to enter the pros hasn't ruined his promising potential.
no argument from me
Meeks was beast at Kentucky but is garbage in the NBA, like Adam Morrison
Our good luck charm. The Lakers haven't been to the Finals since he left... Won two championships while he was on the bench.
Haha.. I still love Morrison, always brought great laughs
Are garbage. Kobe and Nash are a shell of their former selves, and Dwight sucks. Thats not even taking into account their coaching situation which is a dumpster fire.
It'll take a maricle for them to get out of the 1st round (assuming they make the playoffs mind you).
I was right with you up until the Dwight part.
Kobe is a shell of his former self (still great but much worse) and Nash can't even get healthy enough to stay on the court.
Kobe? Much worse? Dude. GTFO. He's shooting over 50% from the field. His assists and rebounds are up. Get off LeBron's dick.
