He hustles though. We need to platoon him with a guy who can actually shoot because he tries hard as hell, goes after loose balls, defends with everything hes got even though he can be ineffective sometiems. He earns the minimum I think, keep him around for that price but we gotta have another shooter on the team

We have a better shooter...Metta 3/14 today.

Meeks & Metta should pass the ball everytime they get it. :freak2:

His defense is about as good as Morris'.....fake hustle.

Has. To. Hit. Shots. Meeks can do whatever he wants on defense, but he is totally without value if he can't hit 2 or 3 triples a game. That's his job. When you've got Pau and D12 able to post, you know the looks will come. Just set and shoot.

IF Jodie can drop a few more shots, LA could steal some games in this series.

he made one basket and that was off an offensive reb so yea we need more than just a "few" shots. Dude is just horrendous, can always count on this guy to look like he has no business being in the league when he tries his 1 man fast brake and airball layup attempts.

if meeks isnt hitting 3's put in glock or duhon. defense is gunna be sketch but those guys are just as good 3 point shooters. glock has that floater too and duhon is an okay pg with good vision.

defense is bad at the 2 spot unless blake is there. so meeks glock or duhon is capable of playing it as a backup and if one isnt making shots try another.

give glock a chance

he's not very good defensively and he was brought here for shooting, if he's not making shots why do we need him if we get another "shooter"? He doesn't earn the MIN, he got half of the mini MLE, its close to his MIN but as of late he's not even worth his cheap contract.

I can't defend the kid anymore if he can't make a shot. I love the energy, I love the work, but just like Vujacic when the chips are down you HAVE to make baskets.

He'll be back next season, but hopefully we can find a lesser role for him and we can bring in someone who will actually make shots.

This pretty much. I dig this guy, but when he's not hitting his 3's... what's he good for? This seems to be a trend with him, too.

Personally, I'm tired of Meeks. He's way too inconsistent.

I'd rather have the guy that shoots 2/5 every game from 3 consistently at the worst, than Meeks who will shoot 0/3 one game and then 1/3 the next, then 3/3 the next and then back to 0/3 the next game.

He needs to stop hustling trying to be a complete player because maybe that is tiring him out from being able to shoot the 3 ball. Just be the deadly shooter from the arc that you were signed to be.

Can't hit an open shot, or a shot in general to save his life! Thinks he can drive the ball on a 1 on 3 fastbreak, fouls every single time someone drives past him...what's the point of having this guy in the game, honestly?

Say what you want ... the team have held the Spurs to 89 ppg and 37% shooting the last two games they've played. They came out on fire for game 1 and still only scored 6 more points than they did in the loss last week. Doing that to the Spurs' offense should ordinarily keep the Lakers in the game. In other words, Meeks' defense is not the issue his shooting is.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

We're short handed but damn so much discussion for a guy making 1-2% of our payroll. Who's known to be a niche player. If his niche isn't effective we know he's not doing much else for us.

It's on MDA to play other guys. Why was did Clark and Jamison play a combined 28 minutes . Why is Nash playing 30 minutes? Why is Nash starting? Why is MWP playing 32 minutes? So many questions....

Because Clark and Jamison couldn't hit the broadside of a barn AND they were getting out hustled.

Because if Nash doesn't play 30 minutes, we get to see Duhon/Morris play.

No one plays behind World Peace. That "workout" chart should show why Ebanks doesn't get any playing time.
