No friends I'm not a 76ers fan, and yes I'm serious. Since you all seem to know it all. The simple fact that I don't agree with your assessment of Russell makes me a target...so be it. Russell is no more than an average PG, and from where I stand I don't think the Lakers will win a championship with him as their starting PG. It's my opinion and if you guys don't like...so what.

Don't care what your opinion on Russell is.

Okafor is awful. He rebounds nearly at the same rate as Luol Deng. He's not particularly efficient as a scorer, turns it over too much, and is horrible defending in space.

As I said before, don't be enamored with stats. Okafor is averaging about the same as Deng with less minutes. He is playing out of position with a lesser lineup. But what surprises me is that you guys can't see beyond the stats. Sure Russell had a 17-4-7 with 6 turnovers. He averages almost 4 turnovers per game. So now in his second year, he's made very little progress.

You mention Okafor is terrible on defense, Russell isn't any better, if not worse. Here's the kicker, in order for the Lakers to be competitive they need a leader, and Russell isn't the guy. As you said you don't care about my opinion so I'll just shut up and let you move on with your own reality.
