im hoping fisher, farmar and

im hoping fisher, farmar and brwon all return. If they do, then the pg position realy wouldnt have minutes available although they could still draft a pg and see if he can beat out the laker pg's since none of them are stars. Otherwise, just best available. I think Lazar haywoode could fit with his shooting. I am hoping someone drafts Landry Fields. I would like to hear why he is not getting much love for even the late second round.

I would love if the Lakers

I would love if the Lakers drafted llperez. He lacks post moves, but makes up for them with his dance moves. For all the newbies on the site you need to check out llperez's dance moves. He was in a music video as a backup dancer for the great Quincey Hodges.

NBA Comparisons

The Lakers need help at PG, backup SG and SF. Farmar is a free agent. Brown is expected to opt out. Fisher is old. Vujacic is a disappointment. Artest is on the downside of his career. Walton can't defend and is injury-prone. Morrison is useless.

I believe these are the players the Lakers should be looking at. Here are my NBA comparisons for each player in terms of size, position and skills.

Ryan Thompson 6-6 220 SG/PG
NBA comparison: Brandon Roy

Mikhail Torrance 6-5 210 PG
NBA comparison: Jrue Holiday

Jeremy Lin 6-4 200 PG
NBA comparison: Goran Dragic

Lazar Hayward 6-6 225 SF
NBA comparison: Bruce Bowen

Ben Uzoh 6-3 195 SG/PG
NBA comparison: Keyon Dooling

Sherron Collins 5-11 215 PG
NBA comparison: Tim Hardaway

Landry Fields 6-7 225 SF
NBA comparison: Matt Barnes

43rd Lance Stephenson58th

43rd Lance Stephenson

58th pick Omar Samhan when Bynum is traded

We will sign Kyle Lowry in the offseason, if the Rockets match the Lakers offer, will go after Nate Robinson or Raymond Felton. Randy Foye will be the last resort.

Lakers next season

Lowry/Fisher/Stephenson
Bryant/Stephenson/Vujacic
Artest/Odom(backup SF)/Walton
Bosh/Odom/Powell
Gasol/Samhan/Mbenga

Lance Stephenson will be long

Lance Stephenson will be long gone before the 43rd pick.

I think should target Mikhail Torrence for the 43rd pick, and then look at either Darrington Hobson, Charles Garcia or Sylven Landesburg with their 58th pick.

Lance Stephenson is not going

Lance Stephenson is not going to be long gone before the 43rd pick. This site has him going in the 1st round, but it aint happenin. The Lakers will trade up if they absolutely have to to land Stephenson. Stephenson is going to replace Farmar. We are going to play Stephenson at the 1 and 2 .

Word is...

With all due respect to this site, the accuracy of picks in the 2nd round have been a little off historically. Draftexpress has Stephenson landing at the 43rd pick because others fear his attitude and lack of athleticism. They also have Manny Harris being taken at the bottom of the draft, I don't know what happened with this guy, but he should definitely be a little higher than predicted!

I think it's possible Mikhail

I think it's possible Mikhail Torrance could be drafted in the late 1st.

Lance Stephenson is a SG, not a PG, and is too immature to fit with the Lakers.

When it comes to young players, the Lakers are looking for quality people who'd fit with the team chemistry.

Cyclo you couldn't be more

Cyclo you couldn't be more wrong, the Lakers have quality players already(Kobe,Fisher,Gasol, etc) that can mold Stephenson into a mature youngman and a solid player.

As a Laker fan, I wouldn't be

As a Laker fan, I wouldn't be upset if the Lakers drafted Lance Stephenson, but I'm thinking the Lakers need more immediate help. Lance Stephenson is an immature 19 year old freshman who's a poor outside shooter and poor free throw shooter. He doesn't have the vert. He'd sit on the bench, wouldn't crack the rotation, wouldn't get any playing time whatsoever, and wouldn't help the Lakers win ball games.

If the Lakers don't need immediate help, they should take him, but the Lakers need immediate help at PG, backup SG and backup SF.

PG
Fisher -- old
Farmar -- free agent
Brown -- will opt out

SG
Vujacic -- ineffective

SF
Artest -- downside of career
Walton -- can't defend, injury-prone
Morrison -- useless

Immediate help is needed here.

"Mikhail Torrance is going to

"Mikhail Torrance is going to be long gone before the 43rd pick" by DNYCE

Now how can you be so hypocritical? On Draftexpress, the site you were just blowing on and saying was the most accurate site in terms if mock drafts (which couldn't be farther from the truth actually), Torrence is projected to be the 22th pick in the 2nd round. Also known as the 52nd pick in the draft. You shot down what I said about Lance Stephenson being long gone by the 43rd pick because Draftexpress had him being available at that time, and then say Torrence will be gone by the 43rd pick when the same site has him going later? Lets not be a hypocrite man.

I'm done arguing with you though. You make stupid arguments all the time. And this is the 2nd round, who knows what's gonna happen? There is no right or wrong in making a projection.

Neither site is particularly

Neither site is particularly accurate. DX is wrong all the time. They have to wait until they hear the feedback from NBA teams about 2 weeks prior to the draft before accuracy sets in.

That's why I just use the sites for stats, measurements, reports from the camps, and some player analysis, which I then use to form my own opinions.

First of all Mr. 6000 stop

First of all Mr. 6000 stop giving yourself points, second Torrance is the exception. Draftexpress is more accurate of a site, just because they have 1 or 2 guys wrong im a hypocrite? Your Logic=Failure. They have Lance Stephenson as the 58th pick, I don't think that qulifies as someone who will be long gone before the 43rd pick you moron. By the way why are you concerned about the world champs? Shouldn't you be worried about those 76ers? Those Iverson days are long gone bro take that pick off asap!!!

I swear to Jesus Christ up

I swear to Jesus Christ up above I have NEVER given myself any points ever since points even existed on this site..I don't give a hot damn about points. And how can YOU tell anybody not to give points to themselves? Once again, being a hypocrite.

Second read what I said, because if you do, you'll see that what you said was hypocritical. You said Stephenson would be around for the 43rd pick, because Draftxpress had him being around in their mock. And then you turn around and say Torrence will be long gone, but the same source has him being around for the 43rd pick. You can't just say it's reliable for one pick, and then dismiss is as incorrect for another pick for the sake of winning your argument. That is hypocritical.

Lol i love how your saying he

Lol i love how your saying he gives him self points while ten seconds after every post some random person (who i guess lives life with giving you a point ten seconds after you post as his goal) keep giving you points, and your points go down after that.

Also its idiotic to say Torraence will be long gone, i highly doubt hell go ahead of guys like Crawford, Alibi, Richard, Whit and that whole group, he does have upsides, but i could see him going in the fifties.

Grevis Vasquez will be a scrub in the NBA. We don't want him, he plays no defense, we might as well keep Farmar.

DYNCE is Mitch Kupchecks

DYNCE is Mitch Kupchecks mentally retarded 11 year old son. He thinks he think he holds all the cards in the Lakers operations , but really all the cards he holds are his $2,000,0000 sports card collection his dad bought him.

"come on odom is weak to only think special about him is his skill set being big agile and able to handel the ball hes subpar in every other aspect"

You call Odom weak, and then say the only thing special about him is his skill set, being big, agile, and able to handle the ball. Dang, what else do you want the man to do LOL? You call him weak, and then named alot of things that he has going for himself. haha

I agree, STEVEDOT2

Trading away Toney Douglas just to save Jerry Buss money was one of the worst trades in Lakers' history.

Douglas was the perfect triangle PG.

Only NBA-ready high character guys need apply

1. Ryan Thompson 6-6 220 SG/PG
NBA comparison: poor man's Brandon Roy

2. Mikhail Torrance 6-5 210 PG
NBA comparison: Jrue Holiday

3. Jeremy Lin 6-4 200 PG
NBA comparison: Goran Dragic

4. Lazar Hayward 6-6 225 SF
NBA comparison: Bruce Bowen

5. Alexey Shved 6-7 180 PG/SG
NBA comparison: Brent Barry

6. Sherron Collins 5-11 215 PG
NBA comparison: poor man's Tim Hardaway

7. Ben Uzoh 6-3 195 SG/PG
NBA comparison: Keyon Dooling

8. Landry Fields 6-7 225 SF
NBA comparison: Matt Barnes

These are the guys I like for the Lakers.

Just a note. I'm not high on Charles Garcia or Darington Hobson at all. I see them as Dominic McGuire types who won't do anything well in the NBA. That's not what the Lakers need.

lamar odom is weak? No one is

lamar odom is weak? No one is saying he is a star but pretty hard to call him out when knocking the lakers bench. If the lakers can get someone to take his minutes in the second round, then that would be an amazing deep draft.
