Jodie Meeks: signs with Pistons-3 yr / 19mil!?!? = cya

I really don't know what's up with Brown and legit backup shooting guards. The guy is just unwilling to use them and prefers to play other guys out of position - to bad results.

It's incredibly frustrating and it's totally counter intuitive. Meeks is a legit shooting guard, not a scrub. Get him some damn playing time at his position. Stop screwing with the bench to the point that they are useless. :bang:

I just feel bad for the kid. And I feel bad for us because the bench lineups suck.

Dont worry, Meeks will probably get 2mins playing time in the first half and then he'll be pulled when he misses a shot or makes a mistake.......which is totally fair because 2mins is more than enough time to get into a rhythm.

Brown has ruined careers, he turned Sessions into a mediocre player here. Jodie Meeks will not be exception :man10:

The thing is if he wants to go with length or whatever, Meeks is a better PG fit than Morris. He plays AT LEAST as well defensively and he provides better shooting from outside anyway. It's not like he can't get to the basket like Morris can, so he's got that ability as well.

Morris is more a SG than PG anyway and Meeks is a better basketball player than Morris at either guard position.

If you're hell set on running Artest at the 2 and Jamison at the 3 then this is the lineup you should run:
Meeks/Artest/Jamison/Hill/Howard

Still freaking weird, but better already than anything Morris can do.

One of the primary reasons Meeks was brought here was to provide much needed help with perimeter shooting. He has not performed well within an offense that has been out of sync and out of rhythm. He should be allowed playing time to let his stroke develop rhythm as the offense does the same. Perhaps Brown will re-insert him when there's a bit more stability and consistency on the floor.

he need actual playing time...that simple. shooters need to get in a rhythm and so far he hasnt had any minutes to do that. hes shown he can flat out shoot the 3 and when he is aggressive and gets to the line hes 90%.

for god's sake play him. media needs to bash him every interview about meeks' until he plays him every time kobe sits. he's kobe's backup and i think as a team they need to mention that to their coach instead of watching out only for themselves...kobe wants to win his 6th ring, hes gunna need meeks to back him up

Whatever. His buffoonery is going to get him fired faster because he's literally not playing a guy Mitch targeted to make our team better. Not some d-league scrub that Laker fans have a hard on for. Eventually Jimmy will come to his senses and realize he's got a total jackass running this organization into the ground and he'll be forced to take action.

I still think when Nash gets back, you play good D and you run and try to run up the score. If the opposing transition D gets back you can rely on a half court game. But do it with this lineup:

Nash/Jodie/Kobe/Toine/Dwight

Pau has been playing too many minutes and it really hurts our transition game and our defensive rotations.

Ideally, that starting team gets us a lead by running out on the break and if we play a half court set, then Nash, Jodie, Kobe and Toine are all good perimeter shooters. Kobe, Toine and Nash can all dive and finish at the rim. So Howard has plenty space in the middle to operate with dangerous shooters on the perimeter and slashers on the wing.

Run up the score and then go to a bench that will slow the game down to secure the lead and drain clock.

Blake/Ebanks/Metta/Hill/Gasol

I'd actually really like to see that starting lineup some time.

Really though, Jodie Meeks is a good guard who should be playing 15-20 minutes a game. There's no reason Kobe should be logging tons of minutes. And Meeks could even play PG at times to help give Nash a rest but still provide some offense for the bench. Plus the dude is definitely a decent defender.

From Kevin Ding ...

If Mike Brown has done nothing else, he has made Jodie Meeks into a hell of a fan favorite. UTAH 30, LA 19.

Meeks should be the first guard off the bench and I'd rather have him play PG instead of Morris and Blake . Kobe can run the system instead of Meeks.

I think he cares ... deep in his heart he hopes we lose every game. The faster more losses come the faster Mike Brown will be fired :man11:

Reminds me of last season, when Brown gave Barnes a total of 5 minutes playing time the first week or so of the season, including 2-3 DNPs.

I've been saying it for days now. Meeks can do literally EVERYTHING Morris can, but better. Morris can do NOTHING better than Meeks on a basketball court.

If he's obsessed with length, put Meeks in instead of Morris and the team keeps it's length while instantly getting better.
