PG situation for champs

So now that the season is over with and my lakers have won the title i have a question. Derek Fisher is getting older and older and i think we are in dire need of a change at pg. Dont get me wrong i love all the things and clutch shots derek hit but ima be honest derek can guard anyone. aaron brooks destroyed derek and deron williams as always was a beast against not jus derek but everyone. So im wondering what will the lakers do? trade fisher, let farmar take over? idk but please comment and let me kno wat u think

I agree...

I agree, something must be done. To many times, the defense broke down in the playoffs, and left LA having to recover or deal with mis-matches. They need to find something, he can't guard anyone. He has a great attitude, gets along with Kobe, hits big shots, but he was the main reason for their struggles this postseason. BTW Farmar is not the answer.

too bad lakers dropped smush

too bad lakers dropped smush parker a few years back...he was a decent defensive guard that could take care of the ball and score

monta

He is the exact opposite of the typical triangle pg. The triangle usually capitalizes on bigger defensive minded pg's who can shoot and don't need the ball in their hands a whole lot.

PG Help

Yeah, the Lakers need to improve their PG situation and I agree with nthegoodlife that Farmar is not the answer. They need to bump fisher down to backup and keep Shannon Brown as 3rd string. Their problem will be who will start since Farmar doesn't have enough value to bring them someone worthy of starting. They also don't have too much to trade - Vujacic plus perhaps Morrison's contract are the only tradeables outside their core. Plus, with Ariza and Odom both free agents, they may lose one or both though it might free up some money to sign a free agent PG. Not sure though who is out there.

Farmar

Why no love for Farmar? Dude does good when he get's consistent minutes. Remember the game in the Houston series where Fisher was suspended? Farmar came in and had a terrific game and helped lead the Lakers to victory. Give him consistent minutes, and he will prove himself to be a starting pg.

Farmar probably has more

Farmar probably has more value to the Lakers if they keep him, since I don't think he'd bring back much more in a trade. That said, they can just bet on him. I don't see him being a star but he could be another Fisher. They actually don't need much from their PG other than to work within the system and defend. Farmar needs to improve his defense though if he will be a full time starter for a champion team. He can definitely start already for the "lesser" teams but is not a championship caliber starting guard yet. As we saw in the playoffs, he actually lost minutes to Shannon Brown.
