Lakers Late Night Replay: On point guards, and Bynum's summer to-do's

Is a still-lingering fear of Carmaggeddon keeping you in the house? Allow us to kill about 25 minutes of your day with the replay of Friday afternoon's edition of Lakers Late Night.

Among the topics of conversation:

  • Ways the lockout is robbing basketball fans of all the fun stuff we're supposed to be debating. This week saw the anniversaries of the Shaq trade and the signings of Gary Payton and Karl Malone. Happy memories? Maybe, maybe not, but certainly the sort of thing typically fueling the imaginations of hoops fans through the summer.

  • The Lakers obviously need a boost in production at the point guard position, but the free agent options underwhelm and a trade for a top flight PG seems unlikely. So would Kobe Bryant or Lamar Odom offer a solution?

  • If Andrew Bynum is going to make "the leap," what does he need to work on this summer?
