Who's the starting Point Guard?

Amidst the Kobe Trade Demand, the Los Angeles Lakers training camp is still shaping the roster for the upcoming NBA season. And the big question mark on-court question for the Lakers is the point guard situation.

The Lakers are reed thin in this position. The PG lot includes Derek Fisher, Sasha Vujacic, Jordan Farmar, rookie Javaris Crittenton and perhaps Coby Karl. What team would go far in the playoffs with this bunch? I say no team will more than 35 games with this PG rotation.

Given that the Triangle Offense does not need a prototypical point guard, the Lakers need a dependable shooter/passer who can create space for better opportunities. Unofrtunately, the guards here are mediocre in those departments.

I'm betting Sasha will get the 2nd spot after D-Fish.
