I can't wait for him to actually get into a rhythm and for his shots to start consistently falling.

He was shooting the ball tonight as if Brown had him in shackles these last 5 games. I think he can be useful as a stretch 4 but I think he's pretty much done when it comes to anything else.

I had honestly forgot we even had Jamison when he came in during the Utah game. I'm not kidding! He actually played pretty good today seeing as how he was playing in his usual position.

I was surprised to see him actually try for a rebound in a couple of games early on. Today he's got 7 along with that NOICE block. :jam2: Good to see him make up for some of his misses on the defensive end. Can't wait to see him drop 20 one of these days.

He's actually been a really solid rebounder for our team. It's been a nice thing to see.

He was just lost in the shuffle. He was finally released of any restraints he had with Brown.

Why is he slighty going left while shooting the ball ? It's tough to hit shots when you don't have balance

I jumped out of my chair when he blocked that dunk. :jam2:

Looking forward to this guy being unleashed in the next few games, we already saw some of his signature looks around the baseline tonight. I'm guessing Eddie Jordan is having more say in how to use Jamison now.

the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

In his locker room interview he said they just went out and played ball, and that's what the coaches told them to do. Said they played free, just played, coaches told them to not even look over at the bench and worry, but just play ball. Clearly, that's what they needed for one night at least.

Its clear that Brown's micromanagement really shackled up some of our players.

I meant while shooting jumpshots ( threes) .. I know he has hit weird looking shots around the basket during his career but he's not going to hit long jumpers being unbalanced

Jamison looked waaaay more comfortable out there today, & in the interview also said how the bench did so good cause they actually got minutes.

I seriously don't think anyone in the team is genuinely sad about the Mike Brown firing.

With that free lance offense we were running tonight, Jamison looked real comfortable out there. It wasn't only him though, it was the entire bench. But I believe that this game is a real confidence booster for Jamison. He obviously started slow this season and I truly think this game will give him the confidence he was lacking. You already saw it from the get go. He was looking for his shot, he wasn't really looking to pass it off like he was in the first few games. He also had that nice block on Jefferson!

They assistants had been working on that with him, I guess it didn't stick.

i think its awesome that he got to play freely. he actually had more than 1 shot :man4:

I think once he gets more games with these minutes and gets more shots he'll be the guy we brought him here to be.

I loved what I saw from Jamison today. He didn't shoot well but he was way more aggressive. Not sure what happened but I hope he keeps it up.

While he might not have shot a high percentage, THAT IS the Jamison we all wanted and expected off our bench. He will find his shot more as he keeps playing, so will Meeks. But for the first time all year he was not hesitant and was aggressive, and even with his shot not falling he was productive.

Love the OBVIOUS effort by Bernie and the coaches to try to get Jamison's rhythm back.

A legit scorer shot the rock about 2 times a game under Brown. FU Brown.

Jamison is another guy like Meeks that I'm confident will be used correctly by 'Antoni, might even flourish.
