Lakers Bloggers Roundtable

Bloggers who are covering the Los Angeles Lakers recently had a quick round table about the topic:

My fave point was from Chris Clark of Silver Screen and Roll:
I take a certain amount of issue with the idea that the main weakness besetting the Lakers is on the defensive end.  The Lakers have had a top 3 defense in the league all season long.  Point guard is clearly their weakest defensive position, and often the other team's point guard has a great deal of success relative to the rest of his teammates, but whatever is wrong with the point guard position is hardly causing the team to suffer too dramatically.  If the question were amended to read "is LA's weakness the point guard" or "is point guard the biggest defensive weakness", the answer would be absolutely to either question.
