There is not much to say about the rookie, and his limited play has earned him a “C.”


The other rookie on the Los Angeles Lakers’ roster is Devin Ebanks, an athletic and exciting young man.

Ebanks has also seen limited minutes on the court, since he’s backing up Ron Artest and Matt Barnes

Ebanks is averaging 2.4 points per game and 1.3 rebounds per game; his minimal play has earned him a low “D.”
