I say forget the three point shooting and become a shutdown defender. If he can become shutdown, and Kobe actually remember how to play defense like he used to, along with Kwame playing great post defense, then the Lakers will be a great defensive team.

There was actually one whole month where the lakers beat the pistons where Lamar was shooting 60% from 3 pt range. In the Playoffs he did really well and looked to score more insteada deffering to teammates and Kobe.

Stupid people keep talking about how they wanna give up lamar and andrew to get Garnett but why when Lamar is still very young and same with andrew...Garnett is almost 30 years Old and his stock is decreasing slowly especially after two forgettable seasons in Minnesota.
Let's just stick with our core group that was 1 damn rebound away from winning the series and playing in the second round.

If Bynum could make a 'lil progress (3 or 4 rebs & some 5 pts per game), if Turiaff could stay 100% healthy (I saw some of his games when he was still in Europe in high scholl & boy can realy play) & if Lamar can be 100% focus in every single game & every single play then who knows, maybe we r the team for some great things. I know, I know, there r a lot of ifs but, letz just leave this team for 1 more year 'cause, just like lakerfreak said, we were just 1 rebound away not just from da 2nd round but I believe & west finals.

And maybe if Kwame was 100% focused maybe he can catch almost everytime.
But then again this post is about Lamar so I apologize

What? It's more like...

PG-Smush Parker- Needs to work on 3 point shooting and DEFENSE
SG-Kobe Bryant- Needs to stop cruising on defense and work within the flow of the offense
SF-Lamar Odom-Needs to work on man defense and also be more agressive on offense
PF-Kwame Brown-Needs to learn how to catch passes and finish strong inside
C-Chris Mihm-Needs to work on defense

Smush is a great finisher around the basket. He's one of the best dunking PGs in the league. What he needs to work on is his defense(which is below average) and his 3 PT shooting(very inconsistent). Two points I brought up.

Kobe Bryant amazing? Nothing for him to work on? Come on now. Have you guys forgotten what Kobe is capable of on the defensive end? Look back at the early championship years when Kobe actually put effort into defense. And he also does need to work within the flow of the offense more. Look at the last two regular seasons when he did his own thing. Lottery, and barely making the playoffs. Look at the first round against PHX when he played within the offense and didn't force it as much. The Lakers almost defeated the 2nd seed.

Lamar Odom only needs to work on his 3 point shot? You're fine with his perimeter defense? If he's forced to play the 3 spot next year you'll be regretting saying he doesn't need to work on his D. And you think he's fine on the offensive end. Go watch some more games from last season. He needs to start taking over. He's capable of taking over at times as shown in some games last season but he just doesn't do it enough.

Kwame Brown. You're telling me the only thing he needs to work on his getting out on the break? That doesn't make any sense. You do realize he plays for the Lakers right? This is not a running team. They set plays and work through the triangle. How are you going to say I'm wrong when I say he needs to work on catching the ball and finishing strong. Did you guys not see him at all last season? He lost out on at least 4 extra PPG because he couldn't catch a pass that would result in a wide open dunk.


Then you say Chris Mihm needs to improve overall? Like he's terrible or something? He catches passes(Something Kwame can't do) and actually finishes strong(he is always looking to dunk on someone). The thing he needs to concern himself with is his post defense.

Maybe you guys are just hoping for the Lakers to make the playoffs again as a low seed and get eliminated early. Because you guys don't seem to see that this team needs to work on a lot of things. I was talking about what they need to work on to contend for a championship.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WAS LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER LIKE THIS. IF THIS WAS A SCHOOL PAPER ON THE LAKERS I WOULD GIVE U AN A++++.

let's also try to get Bench production folks. Luke walton is getting better but who else is there besides him, turiaf and cook. We need 1 more PG. thats basically it
