With the firing of Mike Brown, the L.A. Lakers underwent a week of change that yielded two wins that reinvigorated the struggling franchise.
Often, players get a burst of energy and enthusiasm from a change in the coaching staff, though the games this week may be more indicative of a culture shock than a true trend.
This report card is going to yield a letter grade ranging from an A to F by adhering to the following criteria: offensive efficiency, defensive efficiency and intangibles.
Of course, the report is going to account for different roles in the offense. Offensive efficiency will be weighted more for a primary scorer such as Kobe Bryant than a role player such as Metta World Peace.
Furthermore, this report card will only consist of players in the rotation who play more than 10 minutes per game.
Note: Steve Nash will not be included due to only playing two games in the first week due to injury and not playing in any of the Lakers' games in the second week.
Furthermore, the remaining rotation players who play less than 10 minutes per game will not be included due to minimal in-game contributions.
