There aren't a lot of positives to take out of the Los Angeles Lakers' four losses.
The Lakers are struggling to conform to the Princeton, Steve Nash is injured, the Lakers aren't utilizing the fast break, the bench is underperforming and there are seeds of a mindset clash being sowed between Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant.
Ironically, amidst the struggles there are several individual players who have distinguished themselves in two different ways.
At least statistically, there are the studs who have performed well individually under the Princeton offense.
In contrast, there are players who have underperformed. Whether it be due to injury or unfamiliarity with the offense, there is no doubt that the Lakers have their fair share of underachievers.
Identifying these studs and duds and utilizing their strengths while marginalizing their weaknesses can be a key to achieving success for a struggling Lakers squad.
