Jamison an Ideal Second Unit Leader?
He is a new guy on the Lakers, but (Antawn) Jamison’s built a solid reputation beyond his consistent scoring and longevity. Various accounts say he’s a positive locker room presence. The Lakers will have plenty of leadership from Bryant, Nash and Gasol. But it will be valuable for the reserves to have their own leader. Jamison will play mostly with the reserves and they’ll need a go-to option.
The rest of the reserves have a team-first mindset, including Blake, Ebanks, Jordan Hill and Jodie Meeks. But last season, the bench lacked an identity. Jamison would be a good model to follow because of his work ethic and positive attitude.
