Mike Brown reminds me of Don Mattingly (Dodgers manager) too much. They have some ideas of their own and they are piss poor strategists while completely disregarding patterns

Phil would do it when he felt that it was necessary in a certain situation. He never planned to do it like Mike is doing. Mike is publicly proclaiming that Morris or Blake could see minutes at the 2 spot. That's ridiculous.

Why would the Raptors downgrade from Calderon to Duhon? If Lowry was still around, getting rid of Calderon and his big contract for Duhon would make sense

Ok I checked that twitter he has like 20 followers lol its fake

Doesn't Calderon make like 9 mil per year? Would take more than Duhon and DJO to get him, and I doubt the Lakers would spend that much on a backup considering the payroll they have already.

Calderon's contract is 132% of Blake, Duhon and DJO's contracts. We're a tax-paying team so we technically cannot make that trade. For us to make that trade we'd have to throw in another contract or replace DJO with Morris.

No Jordan Hill or Dwight Howard tonight. Brown also said that he would probably hold Steve Blake out as well.

Interesting.... Blake is sitting and nothing is wrong..... Hmmm....

I hope something is afoot because the thought of Morris getting minutes is enough to make me sick.....

"I still don't know who my backup (point guard) is or my backup (shooting guard)," Brown said. "I'm going to try to play Antawn (Jamison) as my backup (small forward) and I'm going to try to play Jordan (Hill) as my backup (power forward).

Shouldn't he be searching for what his other 6 will be, not 5? You suit up 13 active players this year, they made the damn rule change last year to help teams with injuries and so every player could be active if all healthy since 13 is the min u can carry on a team.

They need to just eat the contracts of all three of our backup PG's. If you can trade them, obviously do it, but if not just waive them and bite the bullet. Bring in Barbosa, keep Glock/DJO to run some PG because at least they will put points on the board if they play 15 minutes.

Morris can't facilitate whatsoever, Duhon is content with collecting checks and Blake is so inconsistent with his play and consistent with either getting hurt or having long stretches of doing nothing, there is no reason to keep them around. None of them can score or facilitate and our 2nd unit as a whole suffers from it.

I've seen better PG play so far from DJO/Glock and that isn't really a compliment to how good they have been playing either.

I'm still calm regarding potatoe head.

I want to see what happens once the games actually count.

As of right now my rotation would be

Nash / Blake
Kobe / CDR
Artest / Ebanks
Gasol / Jamison
Howard / Hill

Meeks would be my 5th guard, Sacre my 5th bigman...thats 12 guys. I would also keep Duhon as a third PG because of his guaranteed money and also keep Clark as my 5th forward. I would cut DJO, Glock, Morris and so forth...

Right now CDR has played better than Meeks and he is the best scoring option off the bench after Jamison. He is actually an NBA player who has played in the league and done so while playing well for stretches.

If Mitch lets CDR or Sacre go..then I'll be furious.

When I read stuff like this, I find myself willing to endure a bad start to the season in order to have Brown fired.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

The Lakers need to act quickly...right now, before the season is actually sabotaged and dump Potato now.

I'm not saying bring Phil back even...I'd even take Eddie Jordan over Milk Dud.

I'll be insufferable when we get to the end of the season and Jodie Meeks or Chris Douglas Roberts has been our clear cut back up shooting guard, Antawn Jamison logs a total of 36 minutes in the 3 slot and Darius Morris & Steve Blake play together for only 23 minutes.


Right, but maybe the reason for that will be Mike Brown is no longer the coach .... :man12:
