5 Backup Pointmen L.A. Lakers Would Rather Have Than Steve Blake and Chris Duhon
Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Los Angeles Lakers fired Mike Brown. The way it has looked so far this season, L.A. would rather have anyone else as head coach.

The same could be said about Steve Blake and Chris Duhon as backup point guards.

Sadly, with Steve Nash hurting, that's who the Lakers are stuck with to replace him.

Not ideal when you are off to the franchise's worst start in 34 years.

The Lakers would love to have a different option at backup point guard instead of Blake and Duhon. With their performance this season, and during most of their entire NBA careers, it's a wonder why the Lakers didn't address this in the offseason.

Nash does keep himself in shape, but 38-year bones and ligaments are still 38 years old. Limiting his minutes will be key, as they need him at full strength for postseason play.

This list could be about 20 players long. But let's just go with the top five point guards that could feasibly play for the Lakers at some point this season instead of Blake and Duhon.
