If MDA trots out Nash/Meeks/Kobe/Jamison/D12......money in the gosh damn bank. Meeks would be getting a ton of looks aka the MWP shots.


thats gona wear down Kobe, he already doesn't play much D to begin with but putting him @ 3 would wear him down quicker against the more physical 3's in the league.

is there really that many 3's with the physicality to wear him down? Heck it might actually help Kobe on D since he wont be out-quicked(is that a word) by the faster 2 guards.

I trust Meeks as bench player more then I would with Peace coming of the bench, dude might get even worse, hard to imagine as bad as he already has been.

Even though he's been missing shots whenever he shoots I still think it's going in. Hopefully in a few days we'll see more of that shooting touch.

D'Antoni is already doing it right...don't put too much expectations on players, especially beyond there ability. Meeks is a scorer, was brought here to shoot. So just catch and shoot...should calm his nerves down.

He looked calm tonight and actually did well in the pick and roll with howard a few times. He needs to play more than 9 minutes though...i wanna those minutes creep up to the 18-22mpg range. You can't expect our best shooter to get in rhythm if he's only playing 9 minutes....

Jodie just needs to know where and when he's going to get his shots.

Clear example of this was when they ran that "21" play for him off of Dwight's pick at the top of the arc.

When he shoots with confidence he rarely misses. You can tell there's a hitch in his shot whenever he's unsure to shoot (and it usually results in a miss).

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

His shots still aren't falling, but at least he's not trying to create for others.

Ouch. Poor Meeks got posterized in the 2nd quarter. :man10:

He really needs to step it up. I don't want Kobe to end up playing too many minutes cuz we dont have a reliable backup SG. At least he's not turning the ball over.

Yeah, his history should surprise no one. However, I hope his playoffs are one of the highs instead of lows. That would suck.

Isn't Redd still out there.

If so, why not just dump DJO and sign Micheal Redd. His knee is stronger. That way we have Redd and Meeks as back up 2 guards.

Redd can still hit the 3, and the mid-range. On reputation alone he won't be left open too much.

Or Delonte......

DJO is an athletic freak, but too small. We don't have time for projects.

Dump Clark too for Pietrus. Then we are set for the year.

if he continues struggling when everyone gets back, i wouldn't be surprised to see duhon get some burn at the backup sg spot.

Just tell him to stand in a corner and shoot it if he's open, pass if not.

Meeks is suffering from PTBS - Post Traumatic Brown Syndrome. Mike seems to have wrecked our young backup SG's instead of instilling confidence in them. Meeks will get better for us - give it time.
