Who Gets Crunch Time Minutes for the Lakers?



Through the first 20 games of the season the lakers really haven't had a close game where everybody was available to play.  Since Gasol returned from his hamstring injury we have had only one close game.  In that game Lamar Odom was ejected with 5 minutes left to play. 

 So who do you guys think will get the crunch time minutes between Odom and Bynum?  Last year the Lakers won a championship with Odom playing with Fisher, Kobe, Ariza, and Gasol.  This year, however I like how Artest/Gasol/Bynum can play keep-away around the rim until the ball goes into the hoop.  This line-up also creates matchup problems for nearly every team in the NBA.  During last year playoffs I think (correct me if I'm wrong) Phil Jackson made a quote about Drew having to improve his defense in the post to get crunch time minutes.  While his defense in the Miami game was awful; he has been solid so far this year.  Lamar Odom has accepted being LA's sixth man so far, but  would he still be happy if he was sitting on the bench in the fourth quarter?  Personally, I would go with the  line-up in crunch time that won us a NBA championship last year.

 

(just wanted to know what every else thought about this)
