The starting lineup should be:
Radmonavic can not play D well enough to start.
Odum would do better coming off the bench. We have enough offense with K, G and By in the starting lineup. Let Odum be the 6th man of the year.
Fisher is getting older and has lost another step, Vujacic has that 3 game and is long enough to to be disruptive on D.

I believe if the Lakers will make teams think twice about how they cover them on defense and also keep Pau Gasol & Andrew Bynum on the floor, then the starting 5 must be as follows:
Lamar Odom - Point Guard
Derek Fisher - Shooting Guard
Andrew Bynum - Center
Kobe Bryant - Small Forward
Pau Gasol - Power Forward
This line-up will allow Phil Jackson to shuffle players who may be in a mismatch on defense without subsituting his starting 5. It will also create an advantage at the point guard position with Lamar Odom standing at 6'10. Kobe at small forward will stretch any defense which will leave Gasol & Bynum to man the paint. The only defensive liability will be Lamar Odom. Take Odom over Radmonovic any day.

starting lineup has to be - bynam, gasol, kobe, rad, fisher. Radmon is not the best five player on the team but he starts better than he comes of the bench
