Josh is one of the best shot blockers/weakside defenders in the league.
But a quick look at his head to head duels
16 games vs KG, Garnett averaged 20 pts, 58%FG
13 games vs Boozer, Carlos ave 15pts, 51%FG
26 games, Bosh ave. 20pts 49%
If only he can realize that it's very important that he needs to absolutely abandon the 3pt shot and instead take more higher % jump hooks. Then Im on board.
About Ariza, Yes, I like Trevor too.
Thanks for saying that Tam, and sorry I didn't respond sooner, busy week.
I think you're a classy guy too, and always enjoy your posts.
They are well thought out and always backed up with facts and stats.
I do think Scola would be an asset to the team. He would fit nicely with Bynum. He's deadly from midrange and a better shooter and thinker than JSmith. I just like JSmiths youth and athleticism. I think he'd help us matchup well against the likes of Dirk, KD, Blake Griffin etc.
I just see the NBA changing, and the Lakers need to keep pace.
