I just came here to post the same thing. I follow him on twitter, and he comes off like an immature dumbass.


Ive been saying this since he got drafted. I think hes a good kid he doesnt get into too much trouble (well no longer the case now), but he always sounded super childish and immature. I dont think he takes basketball very seriously

Hopefully gets cut, so we can sign Pietrus.

I hope we sign him. He's a good defender and a superior shooter to Barnes and Ebanks ..sad he doesn't have a team yet

Knucklehead. Shades of Space cadet on this one. I was a supporter of the kid, but I might be jumping off his bandwagon with this stupidity.

Lol yeah but he forgot to cuss out the 'po po' like Barnes did. That would make it much more gangsta.

Ebanks is a Laker, I support him 100% right now. I am disappointed in the bad decision he made, but hopefully this is a learning experience for him that can help him to mature.

On another note, though, it would be AWESOME if we could trade for Ariza somehow...we could play him with the starters and bench Artest. :jam2:
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

Ship his arse out. We are not playing around this year. If you are not about winning a championship and become a distraction, you should get cut. Let's get Pietrus, who at least we don't have to worry about not being professional.

Not excusing him one bit for this, but Scottie Pippen got a DUI while he was playing.

People do dumb stuff from time to time. Doesn't take away from his basketball ability. He just needs to get his head straight.

That being said ... Pietrus is still available. :man1:

Even old doc himself got pulled over for DUI. I'm not excusing what Devin did, but I'm not going to go crazy over it. He made a mistake. As long as he learns from it and doesn't do it again, then I won't complain.

It's a mistake and one he hopefully learns from. With that said I hope we get Pietrus, he can defend and shoot the three ball at a consistent rate.

Ebanks is no Scotte Pippen. Ebanks is just a bubble player that can't afford to become a distraction to his team. If Ebanks get cut next year, which is highly likely with a 1 year contract, I don't think any team will pick him up given the DUI during the season. NBA teams will not take on that risk because there are so many players available. Ebanks cannot afford to have any dings on his record, and if doesn't stick next year, he may find himself in the NBA...and go down to the D-league or overseas.

Guys as long as Ebanks has no trade protection we can't trade him without his approval. Also cutting Ebanks will cost us 3 mil (luxury taxes included). Also Piretus is not coming here for cheap.

Lol, every team I play NBA 2K, the first thing I do is trade Metta for Trevor. Anyway, why get rid of this guy when we'd have a glaring hole at the backup 3. Now that Brown is gone, we'll hopefully see him backing up Metta, not Kobe.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Ebanks missed 2 games since being arrested for possible DUI. “We just don’t feel like he’s ready to play basketball,” Lakers spokesman said.


Personnel problems....what's your call on this Phil? :man1:

The point is Piertus will not sign for less I mean what part don't you get.I mean move one people I mean CDR was willing to play for less and I would rather have him than that greedy french bastard.

No Kobe getting arrested in Colorado in 2003 for sexual assault now that was a PR nightmare and one of the reasons why we lost to the Pistons that years. So the point is Ebanks' issues are nothing. Also Piertus is not signing for cheap, and I really do not want to keep typing that, but none of you gotten that fact yet.

When I was 22, I could get smash, bang, wake up in the morning, go to class all day, then work and still hit the gym. Testosterone was off the charts.

I don't even care about his rep. I think the main issue is that he is given a chance to play for the best franchise in all of sports and he doesn't take advantage. Fool
