Mitch Kupchak said he is "okay" with pg depth w/ Lin, Price & Clarkson. Mitch: "Will we look to get another backcourt player? I don't know."
Lakers not looking to add another PG at this time. They like Lin, are pleased with Ronnie Price. And of course, there's the rookie, Clarkson
Lowry saying what’s up to Fisher during the free throw. Gives some props to the former PG.
Seems really clear that Fisher & Co. want to give Larkin every chance to win backup PG role. Im not convinced yet hes better than Pablo, tho
Lin: "What I went through in Houston has prepared me for this year." As mentioned before, Scott will pick starting PG once season starts
Ronnie Price starts for Lakers tonight at PG. Lin, who will come off bench: "One thing I've leaned...nothing's guaranteed in this league."
Nuggets:Is Shaw any good? Can Denver be as good without playing Karl’s system? Faried as good here as he was in Spain? Lawson elite pg?
Mavs:is Nelson the perfect pg for the talented scorers at 2, 3, 4 as he appears to be? If so, can bench wings support strong starting 5?
Desure Buie to Hofstra, his coach says. Wings PG also considered Manhattan.
Sad 2 hear about Steve but happy he had a great career, a true PG. 1 of the best 2 ever do it. His biggest fan, AI http://t.co/5YL3iUzhBm
Now Kobe as a pg, is more of a Gary Payton, Sam Cassell Andre Miller on steroids (not literally), take it to the post - create fronm there
Derek Fisher was the Lakers shooting guard in the triangle more than point - in the in-between years, Kobe pg, Smush sg, etc.
I think Lin fans need to look at Kobe as starting pg - backed by Lin - best way to look at it - Kobe played de facto pg most of career
I'd really like to keep JaKarr and Ron Rob as projects. Maybe assign them to Sevens. Worried lack of early season PG depth might doom them.
Lakers could use a point guard - rule of thumb - teams always need 3 pg - unless team thinks Ellington/Clarkson can handle it (iffy at best)
Stotts said Steve Blake (illness) was reevaluated today and he hopes the backup PG will join team tomorrow. Team will decide Thursday.
Jeremy Lin is going to be a good starting PG for the Lakers w/ his ability to get in the lane and create shots for himself & his teammates.
My All Redemption Quest team for 2014-15 NBA season PG: Deron Williams SG: O.J. Mayo SF: Carmelo Anthony PF: Josh Smith C: Roy Hibbert
Former Blazers PG Ronnie Price is starting for the Lakers tonight.
Kendall Marshall had night off tonight in PG rotation. But he should be key piece once regular season opens.
Fish, on why Larkin is gets mins as 2nd-string PG over Pablo: Cites his ability to get into paint, & his change of pace.
