Since the days of Shannon Brown, Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic, the Lakers bench has been one of the worst in the NBA. This past season, the bench scored 25.7 points per game, which ranked them 28th out of 30 teams. This past season, former Mavericks guard O.J. Mayo was a bright spot for an older team as he got his first real chance to start in the NBA. Mayo spent the past four seasons coming off the bench in Memphis and signed a two-year deal with the Mavs last off-season.
