Juan toscano Anderson is one of the Lakers' backups for the upcoming season. The Mexican American is coming off a championship with the Golden State Warriors as well as a second-place finish in the dunk contest at NBA All-Star Weekend.

Some of the Lakers' many weaknesses last season were their defense and bench. The Lakers were the third worst team in points received average in addition to being one of the teams with the most turnovers. The other weakness was the poor rotation the Lakers had. The bench players did not respond and in the end, if LeBron James or sometimes Malik Monk did not show up, the Lakers would most likely lose.

Well my friends of the Lakers, Juan Toscano Anderson fulfills what the Lakers are missing. The Mexican is proven to be an excellent defender. He is a warrior, he doesn't give up and fights for every ball as if his life depended on it. He is also a player who contributes a lot coming off the bench. This type of player is what the Lakers needed last season.

Besides, Toscano Anderson is an excellent promoter of basketball in Mexico. There are a lot of Mexicans living in Los Angeles and the Lakers are one of the most popular teams in Mexico and the rest of Latin America. Toscano Anderson's arrival will help sell more Jerseys and will probably increase NBA exposure in the Latin market, which is an excellent business for both the Lakers and the NBA.

We just have to wait and see what role Darvin Ham gives him. He had good seasons with the Warriors but played very little in the championship game. In the Lakers, he will probably have more opportunities to show his talent and his magnificent dunks. By the way, one of his dunks was named the seventh best of the season. We are anxious to see Juanito as a Laker.
