the reason why lamar is on that second unit to be the leader as well as be the go to guy when the second unit is struggling. with that second unit he needs to command the ball and be aggressive. he's done that in about half of the games. he needs to do it in all the games. when the second unit is firing and hitting he has to just play within the offense. but when they play like they have been the last few games he needs to slow the game down and demand the ball and create for himself first then the other because they will follow his lead. on another note i'm glad to see fisher playing well. he's getting his shots within the offense and wide open and he's knocking them down. unlike the first 14 or so games where he was forcing the issue not running the offense and taking contested shots. welcome back fish.

If Odom doesn't score but has high assist then he is being a leader and a factor, but no points and no assists means he disappeared.

Odom was the starter chosen to accept a very difficult role. Even second units need more than one strong personality. Add Powell or Mihm and we will see a different attitude.

coach jackson is kidding himself if he really thinks that odom can direct the second unit. judging from odom's comments yesterday, his sarcastic statement of the big three making all the shots and that never mind the second unit. perhaps if coach jackson will make him a captain instead of director he might accept the job without any additional dumb comments.
