LA Lakers Stock Watch: Rising and Falling Players After the First Month

Winning six of their 14 games in November, the L.A. Lakers have yet to find a consistent formula to victory.

Furthermore, other than Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace to a lesser extent, there hasn't been a truly consistent performer on the roster.

Despite whether or not the issues lie in the drastic system change due to Mike D'Antoni's signing, the Lakers will need to find some consistency in their player production in order to be successful.

If the Lakers and the entirety of their staff do not know what to expect from certain players from game to game, there is no way they can make a definitive game plan.

However, with the return of Steve Nash on the horizon and the ongoing implementation of D'Antoni's system, players' stocks will rise or fall. Hopefully these upward or downward trends will ultimately lead to consistency from a roster that has been void of it.

This analysis will target three groups.

The entirety of the roster will be divided into groups depending on whether their stock within the team is rising, falling or stationary.

For the players whose stocks remain stationary, it is implied that their productivity, efficiency and the intangibles they bring to the game have been constant throughout November.

Furthermore, only players playing over 10 minutes per game will be mentioned on this article.

Statistics in this article are accurate as of Dec. 3rd, 2012.
