Week 2 Report Card Grades for Every LA Lakers Player

Through two weeks of the 2013-14 NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers have accumulated a 3-5 record. Steve Blake and Jodie Meeks have provided a spark in the absence of Kobe Bryant, but Lakers players have acquired some vastly mediocre report card grades through two weeks.

The Lakers have been better than many expected, winning games against the Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets, but there simply hasn’t been enough talent available to stay competitive.

Has anyone on the Lakers roster performed well enough to earn an “A” grade, though? Having the league’s 27th-ranked defense in terms of opponent points per game (105.6) won’t help their case.

 

Note: All stats in this article are accurate through seven games of the 2013-14 NBA season. The Lakers’ matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves will not be factored into the 2013-14 per-game statistics, and only players who have appeared in at least five games will be graded.

Also, players will be listed in ascending order based on minutes per game.
