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

It's not like Meeks at SG, Ebanks at SF, Jamison at PF, Hill at C can get us 12-15 ppg.....

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:

I agree with moving Metta to the bench, but put him at the back up 3. Move Ebanks to the starting 3 or move Kobe to the starting 3 and put Jodie in at the starting 2.

Bench would be Blake, Jodie/Ebanks, Metta, Jamison, Hill\\

And if he really wants to play Metta at the 2 and involve Pau/Howard at the 5, to move Jamison to the 3 then go with: Blake, Metta, Jamison, Hill, Howard/Pau

Instead of burying Jodie, I would try to put Jodie in as a starter, cause his inadequate D (according to Mike) could be covered up by the talent of our starters. Plus you want the starting unit to blitz the other team and build an early lead.

If the matchups don't make sense for any given opponent, then you can put Kob back at the 2 and put Ebanks at the 3.

Either way, bring Metta off the bench and roll out a more consistent rotation rather than having a daily lineup change :bang:

Hey Brown I got an idea, try playing Sacre at the 1. Think about his length on defense, coach!

I'm sorry, Meeks is not Bruce Bowen, but his defense is not inadequate. Even if it's just average, it's not worth the dropoff in points and better spacing that Meeks would provide on offense.

Am I reading this right? He's gonna bring Metta off the bench at the two no less? Didn't that fail miserably before and he's gonna try it again? :disagree: I know defense wins games, but unless you're gonna hold the other team scoreless, you gotta score as well.

Jodie's defense is a problem so he doesn't get minutes. Yet, we are one of the worst defensive teams in the league right now. What's up with that?

Wait.... so Metta isn't going to start anymore? Or is he just going to be subbed out earlier so that he is Kobe's backup??

Meeks isn't even a bad defender. Someone posted a stat here about how his defense was actually pretty solid...

Because all of the other free agents told us no, when Brown made it known, no matter who the Lakers got in free agency, they weren't playing.

So we're going to have Metta & Ebanks out there at the same time? Or Metta & Jamison? Being the oldest team in the league isn't enough, he needs to cripple us with the slowest rotations possible? I just don't understand how this guy still has a job.
