During the last five years, Yi Jianlian has proven that while the hype may have been overblown, he is a good basketball player who is worthy of another shot in the NBA.
What the Lakers seem have to done is start a layered approach -- finding low maintenance vets to complement burgeoning youth -- and given a young coach an opportunity to build a new culture from scratch. A lot of their success will hinge on how Luke Walton fares, but things are certainly looking more promising.
The Lakers have rebuilt in the past at a light-speed pace full of shortcuts and since thatís clearly not happening this time around, they've instead now shifted to signing players that are effectively human gauze to stop the bleeding.
