The lakers are pretty stacked on paper & on court.
Odom is playing lights out this year.
Chris Brown has improved as a shooter from what i've heard & is playing a lot better than last year.
Gasol is soft but he's still a 7'ft low post monster
Bynum to me isn't that good of a scorer but he blocks a lot of shots, he's 7'ft as well & rebounds like a beast.
Kobe is kobe
Derek is......well he's derek fisher.
Matt Barnes & Ron Artest are great for defense but this year idk about those two
So yea....the lakers are stacked my friend
Odom def doing big things this year, was k!lling it more so in the beginning of the year than currently.
Gasol is good against other PF's...but when it comes to Centers like Perkins, Howard, or Hibbert he struggles. Basically he struggles against the real 7 feet centers who have more muscle. Problem I se with him is that he doesn't protect the paint against people who enter it like D. Rose.
Bynum is good defensively imo. You'll get your offense from him with his put backs.
Agreed that Kobe is Kobe.
To me... D. Fish can do whatever the hell he wants in the regular season, he's real crucial and valuable during playoff time... like others have said... the most clutch pg when it comes to the playoffs.
Artest taken a step back offensively, but his defense though it's not as good as last years is still intact.
Brown...though he has improved and made himself more than just a in game dunker, and now has a 3pt shot...he's stll inconsistent.
Blake as someone said, Blake will do what he has to in the game but that's it...
Barnes was a good pick up IMO. Hustles hard, plays good D, a wild card IMO.
