A few questions


I've noticed in recent posts a growing knot in the collective stomachs of Bedge-land.  Pre-dance jitters?  Or can a fan not be happy unless there's something to obsess on?  Pop-psychology asside, there are questions I have, as a fan, that I wonder if my fellow Bedgers have solid insight into solving.

1.  Is the Brandon Roy iso era going to continue?  I suspect it won't.  Does anyone else think that Nate had an inexperienced stable in the past and was relying heavily on the prized racer because it was a necissity?  Will the continued development of the Dre/Roy backcourt make for more variety in initiation?  Will the bigs' development lead to more outlet passes?  Will the marksman options improving (sorry, Martell Fans) give more diversity to the offense?  In sum, I'm asking if you folks think the offense will pick up and if that's something Nate and co. can accomplish.

 

2. Do we still have the Lakers' number?  Last season it seemed to be a struggle, but then again all of last season was a struggle with injuries.  If they are the top dogs in the West will we be best suited to knocking them off in the playoffs.  [Yes, I have that kind of faith in this years potential.]

 

3. Will the depth hurt them in a healthy year?  Pundits said as much at the beginning of last season, but I suspect our mix of veteran and young talent can maintain a positive pecking order at positions 2-5.  I think point guard may be a minutes struggle with Bayless' need for court time experience and the addition of a potential challenger in AJ. 

 

If you guys find fodder in these questions I will type up the rest.
