How about this lineup?


I was pondering moving or changing the starting lineup because Artest is injured when I started to think about some issues of late. Bynum hasn't been effective the last half-dozen games or so, and looks to be in some sort of funk. It also appears very hard to get touches for both Pau and Drew at the same time. In fact, I was watching when Pau and Drew were stacked on one side last night vs. the Kings. Everytime Pau would get the ball on the perimeter to feed Drew, the Kings defender would sag back, knowing that Pau didn't have the range to hurt them. This happened about... 2-3 times, but illustrated a weakness having them both in the game when Drew is being unproductive.

 

Why not do something like this?

Guards- Kobe and Fisher

Power Forward- Pau Gasol- Run the offense through Pau like usual instead of force feeding a slumping Bynum.

Small Forward- Artest- Can hit the three better than most of our team, he's at like 33% or 34%. Great to feed into Pau

Center- Mbenga!- Why not? He can play the scrapper, defender, rebounder and be the cleanup guy. He will guard the paint, and maybe motivate Drew to move and play hard defense off the bench. The Lakers have proven very soft defending the offensive rebound; pretty surprising considering the length they have down low.

 

Anyway, just thoughts...
