Roberson Making it Hard

New, comments

The free agent rookie, Anthony Roberson is really making a name for himself so far in the preseason. Nelson's decision on who gets a roster spot and who doesn't is going to be very difficult.

Roberson nevertheless has turned heads with his explosiveness and shooting ability. After contributing 10 points to the Warriors' 112-103 victory Thursday over the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets in the first game of the Lakers Shootout at the Staples Center, Roberson is averaging 15.5 points per game and converting 42.1 percent of his 3-point attempts. "I felt coming in here my chances were good, even with what they had. I feel like I could play, and I would benefit from the system he plays," Roberson said. "I think this system is made for me." "The biggest thing for him to understand is defensive schemes, and knowing there's more to it than just guarding your own guy," Riley said. "I think those are the things he probably needs to work on the most. If he's going to be able to stay, it's going to be because his defense stepped up."

With the glut of guards right now, Baron, JRich, Monta, Wagner, and McLeod, is it worth it to keep Roberson?
