NBA  > Los Angeles Lakers  > Nice to have a deep bench....
January 8, 2009, 10:08 PM
I bought the full package this year to watch every Laker game with my son. Like Dad he is a full fledge Laker fan and we spend every other day or so together watching them play. After the great start we started talking about it and I told him that it is a long season and expect injuries (see last year). What I didn't expect was the injury bug to hit so hard so fast. However, having such a deep bench is exactly what we need to get through this. Yeah, they came out of the gate strong with a revamped defense but it wasn't a couple of weeks before the scouts figured out how to beat this new defense. I see flashes of last year but more and more they are reverting to strong defense to win. I don't know about you all but I'm kind of liking this team despite their youth and I'm looking forward to a good season.

How about Ariza! We heard talk about him last year when he was injured but I didn't expect THIS....wow. I read that Phil wants to clone him....

This has the makings to be quite a team.
