Default who on this team has any tenacity?

OK, Kobe has tons.....

I think Luke plays hard and so does Evans.....maybe Sasha too.....

But who else?

Kwame jogs up the court all the time....he is an observer, not a
participant way too much of the time...

Lamar occassionally shows tenacity, but not often enough....

Who else? NO ONE.

Keep KB24, Luke and Evans,.... Get rid of ALL the rest and bring in
some players who will put forth the effort. (KG for example!!)

That's my 2 cents....

If I'm reading tenacity right, you mean like a burning desire to win?
If so, then easy question: KB, Turiaf and Farmar.

Evans shows spurts of it, but I'm not convinced on him..I do like him tho.

Ya, burning desire to win is close enough. I want players like KG
who give it their all every night!!! Turiaf is a good example but
if he is needed in a trade for something great, then sorry Ronny....
same with Farmar.....and Drew.... whatever it takes Mitch, do it!!!

The Lakers do lack tenacity... they don't seem to have a sense of urgency. They are so laid back. They don't seem to get angry at losing. They dont know how to foul hard.

I have tried to articulate this all through the season.. the team dynamic here is strange and perhaps broken.

To be elite caliber, you have to have a burning desire to win and do whatever it takes to win. This team chemistry lacks that for whatever reason.

responsibility. no one, other than KB, feels that it is their personal responsibility to kick ass.

This is exactly why Phil doesn't like very young players folks.

at least Farmar and Turiaf show they want to win.
