Shootaround Report: Lakers Set To Begin Texas Road Trip

Shootaround Report: Lakers Set To Begin Texas Road Trip



The Lakers are coming off of their worst defensive effort of the season after giving up 137 points to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night. Things don’t get any easier for the team as they head to Dallas to begin a back-to-back in Texas.

With the recent announcement of Andrew Bynum being traded to the Chicago Bulls, Pau Gasol will be able to play, at least for the time being, knowing that he isn’t going to be moved. The Lakers were unable to get what they wanted back from the Cavs, so Gasol remains in Los Angeles. With the way he has played recently, that is a good thing.

On the injury front, the Lakers were expecting Xavier Henry to be reevaluated on Thursday, but now that has been moved back so Kendall Marshall will continue to be the lone point guard for the Lakers.

    I’m still a proponent of this Lakers starting lineup of; Marshall, Meeks, Wes, Gasol and Sacre. Everything would’ve been fine in that Denver game if the team had simply been prepared to start the second half with the same energy, focus and urgency that was on display in the first half!
    They simply cannot have another letdown like that. I don’t care what the score is when they come out of the locker room after halftime…they have GOT to maintain their intensity…the foot CANNOT come off the gas!

    Kendall Marshall has his chance of a lifetime to make a big name for himself in different NBA cities since the Lakers are playing 10 out the next 11 games on the road.

    The Lakers are playing in big Dallas,Houston,Boston,Toronto,Chicago,Miami,New York it’s time to make a big famous name for himself on the extended Grammy Road Trip send those fans of opposing teams home every night talking great stuff about Kendall Marshall.Make the NBA Fans take notice of how great Kendall Marshall is.Lakers will use the marketing machine to hype up Kendall.

    Kendall Marshall is the best passer i have seen in the last decade.Lakers might not win games that is obviously by design with all the injuries and many other issues.But as long as the team comes out and gives 100% effort i am happy with that.Player development is the thing i am watching for on this extended road trip.

    Go Lakers!
