Lamar Odom's value to the Los Angeles Lakers is undeniable.
The NBA's reigning Sixth Man of the Year, Lamar deftly leads LA's bench mob. But he's also in a position to step into the starting lineup at a moment's notice, and has done an incredible job when asked to start over the last few seasons.
The versatility and talent that LO brings to the Lakers are so vital that it's fair to wonder: Is No. 7 best suited in his current reserve role, or as a starter who can make the most of that talent for 40 minutes per night?
