This backup point guard situation is just frustrating. When does someone get a clue and develop themselves into future stars instead of being the 'also rans'. Farmar has no fire in his eyes and the job, basically, is there for him to lose, not win. I love the potential in Farmar, he just lacks the sense of urgency that you would expect from the relay runner as the baton is being passed. I love the potential in SB. Shannon Brown has earth, wind AND fire in those eyes. The Drill Sargent from Full Metal Jacket would have fun with him. SB, however, can't seem to control his gearing. He is so energetic and athletic that he spends more time trying to control his speed (to no avail) than the job at hand, which would be helping to create. Both of these players are diamonds in the rough and I'm damn proud to know that they're Lakers. My thoughts are on another diamond by the name of Will Bynum. Bench player in Detroit. This guy is pure platinum(i know, i know), waiting to be mined. He is getting less than a million right now and he is not under contract after this season. What are the chances the FO is looking at this guy? He would start on a lot of NBA teams and I'm sure someone is looking to give him a contract. He has a large body like our PGs(little body=jennings, brooks) and the guy is a borderline star. He gets no PT so exposure is limited. Any doubters in his talents weren't watching him last season. I'm sure he can be you tubed. Is it just me or is this an opportunity thats just too good to ignore under our current circumstances? Talk to me, family.
