Judging from our perimeter defense this season I'd say Meeks is having the same impact on the bench as MWP, Kobe and Pau are having on help defense while on the floor.........

Facetious of course but I can't believe he is "tinkering" with the line ups and none of that "tinkering" includes the guy we made a "Need Signing" in the offseason.....

I'm not sure it would make a huge difference as Meeks was available for a reason but he can at least shoot and is somewhat athletic.... that's a combination no one else on the bench can boast of....

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


I posted them. He's a good defender when he's part of a team defense environment like he was under Skiles in Milwaukee and Collins in Philly. But since Mike Brown wants "length" to be his defense instead of actual rotations, Jodie doesn't fit in apparently.

relax cl. remember artest in sac, or in houston? him and aaron brookes gave us a scare in the playoffs. mike brown needs a playmaker off the bench. it isnt going to be jamison, blakes hill or meeks.. theres enough playmakers in the starting line up. and i here ebanks has developed a pretty good 3 point shot. we need that with nash. u notice when rons playing with the big 4, he doesnt get the ball much, so when he does, he tries to hoist one up a shot, good or bad. jamisons also a good cutter, ron will draw defenses and find a slashing jamison.

Ron draws defenses if he penetrates only, and he gets stripped a good % of the time.

Ebanks has made 1 three pointer on 4 tries this season and is .167 career. I wouldn't get too excited.

Now I have the confirmation Mike Brown is posting here ... because that's not the 1st time I read there weren't differences between the 2 and the 3 positions

I like the scoring Ron can give us off the bench.. But I would like it alot more from SF next to Meeks. I just don't understand this obsession with length. & the no different between the wing positions thing comes from the triangle days, when there was no difference between them in offensive sets. Defense is a whole other story.

Length, length, length..... Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.

The last two championships were won with mostly versions of small ball -- speed, athleticism, and guys who get into the paint and cause havoc with all that "length."

See what little Bynum from Det was doing to Gasol and Hill the other night? JJ Barea - remember him? Bosh at 5 and LBJ at 4?

Having Ron play out of position and try to do too much will make that unit the worst in league history -- clanks from long rebounds and TOs beacuse of no spacing and playmaking will lead to transition points and fouls galore.

Please fire this idiot. How can he be the coach of the LA Lakers??? This is a nightmare.

to me this has gotten to the point complete embarrassment with how poor of a coach he is.

Brown is potentially great lead assistant. Dude works hard, preaches D, and communicates well. But as far has having a feel for chemistry, managing egos/players body limits, instilling confidence, making adjustments on the fly/in game, and creating balanced rotations, this idiot is a complete moron. Unfortunately, those are the characteristics of a good head coach. Some guys make the transition from assistant to HC well, Brown didn't.

Imagine Brown trying to coach 2005-2007 Kobe, he'd be crying 2 weeks in.

He's overplayed Kobe to injury, never found a consistent rotation and seemingly experiments daily, struggles to have vision as to what can work and what is working around the NBA, and projects a strong ineptitude to other coaches. They say you are only as strong as your weakest link, well within this franchise, Brown is easily the weak link- which is unfortunate because he's in command.

MWP is not a backup 2 Heck, he is not even a good fit at small forward (despite his strong start). Ebanks is not a backup 2. Blake sure as hell aint a sg. we signed Meeks to play 14-18mpg. In that time, his role was very well defined, spot up shooter. Clear space and keep defenders honest. Seeing as we are the worst spaced team, you'd think Brown would understand that. Hopefully, Mitch and Buss are taking notice of the things I am.

At this stage, anything that hastens Brown's departure cannot be looked at as all negative.

Well...all this possibly explains why Hill and Barbosa went elsewhere.
Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.

Really? Can anyone with a straight face defend Brown now? I don't even have to watch the game to know how it will unfold.

Didn't this moron watch ORL games? Didn't this moron know what happened last year with Drew and spacing?

Surround D12 with great shooters in Morris, MWP and Hill. Wow just effing wow.
