PG of the Future


It looks like every Laker position is locked down for years to come except for the PG position. Fish is still clutch but is declining and I think it's safe to say that Sun Yue wasn't the answer.

Farmar shows some pretty good signs but was super inconsistent last year, and the injury didn't help either. Shannon showed great athleticism during the playoffs last year but he just doesn't seem like a starting PG to me. 

I think the job is Farmar's to lose. I think Farmar needs to play to his strengths more. He needs to drive and dish or drive and finish more, not settle for deep threes. He also needs to not be such a liability on defense, he is always getting burned badly. If Jordan can get his assists up and hit the three at close to 40% for the year he should be a fairly cheap option for the Lakers.

Shannon is yet to really prove anything to me. He hit a few clutch threes but I want to see how Shannon deals with expectations. Last year he wasn't expected to contribute, let alone get in the games, this year he will have some pressure to play well. He also hasn't ever really played extended minutes, it's a lot easier to play well for five minutes then it is for twenty minutes. Don't get me wrong, I want Shannon to succeed, I just have my doubts right now. I also see Shannon playing more SG, not PG, especially if Sasha decides to suck next year. 

So my question is: Do you think the PG of the future is Farmar, Brown, or someone else like maybe a Kirk Hinrich
