HAHAHAHA

http://www.latimes.com/sports/lakersnow/la-sp-ln-world-peace-backup-shooting-guard-spot-20121106,0,4252595.story

Metta World Peace will get minutes at shooting guard, Lakers Coach Mike Brown said.

"That's going to be my second unit," said Brown. "Metta will be the two, [Antawn] Jamison is the three, [Jordan] Hill is the four and [Dwight] Howard or Pau [Gasol] is going to be the five.
"

Brown experimented on Sunday against the Detroit Pistons with a lineup featuring Howard at center and Darius Morris running the point along with Hill, Jamison and World Peace.

In their second-quarter run of about three minutes, the group was able to extend the Lakers' lead from 18 to 21.

Devin Ebanks will remain in the rotation at shooting guard and small forward, as Brown looks for minutes to rest both Kobe Bryant and World Peace. For now, Jodie Meeks and veteran Chris Duhon, are unlikely to get significant minutes.

"I've got to give my bench a chance, because right now I really haven't. I've been messing around with it too much trying to search for combinations," said Brown. "Now that I've found a combination that I think I want to roll with it a little bit, let's give them a chance to see how they play before making another change."

The Lakers as a team have been shooting well this season, diminishing the need for another scorer like Meeks. Now Brown is looking for his squad to improve defensively.

With the 6-foot-7 World Peace at shooting guard, the Lakers will have a sizable lineup featuring Morris (6-4), Jamison (6-9), Hill (6-10) and Howard (6-11). When Gasol (7 feet) rotates in instead of Howard, the Lakers are even taller.

The Lakers started the season 0-3 but finally got their first win over the struggling Detroit Pistons. They may have a bigger challenge on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.

This is discussed in other threads and... it seems like he's really messing with our heads right now. Sounds like a joke really, but unfortunately... it isn't. He finally realized Ebanks is not that good as a SG (which is not Devin's fault BTW) -- so he decided to try Metta instead. Maybe in his Indiana days, yeah.

It's so sad. Meeks was our only knock down shooter outside of Nash going into this season and Turd Face won't even play him. We will be so ****ed in the playoffs when teams zone up and we have no one that can knock down a three. And when Turd Face decides to throw Meeks into the game he will be utter garbage since he won't have any rhythm at all.

MWP at the 2.... Why stop there?... why not try Hill as Blake's backup?..... I've seen him handle the ball at the top of the circle.... he's not half bad....

Ebanks should be furious with Brown. This is just disgusting... Benching him and then relegating him to bench warmer last season, now relegating him to bench warmer after being in the bench rotation.

Oh my head. MWP at SG? Not playing Meeks who was brought in to be pretty much our only shooter? Ebanks had a really good preseason so he doesn't play him certain games for no reason, clearly already messing with his head and his game? Gotta love Mike Brown.

I gave Mike Brown kudos for sticking with a lineup for 2 games. Now I want my Kudos back.

I would never put them all out there at the same time. I was just going position wise.

Oh I know.... I was just thinking that group isn't consistent in any way.... they may give you 25 to 30 points in a blow out and then 9 in a close game.... We have no consistent presence in that group and an average isn't the best way to look at it IMO....

I would like to know what Meeks is not doing well enough to warrant time. Seriously, any ideas other than; Brown is trolling, Brown is just and idiot, etc.

Devin's confidence will be shaken and Metta should "pull a Luke" and tell coach Brown that Meeks deserves to play the 2 with the reserves instead of him.

Apparently he doesn't have length which doesn't fit into Mike's defensive strategy. :freak2:
