another guy who most thought was just garbage filler in an otherwise salary dump in which we had to throw in a 1st :man10: me included. What a great find, hopefully he doesn't follow the trend like Shannon and Ariza :freak2: and either get worse or over value themselves financially i.e. Ariza.

Actually his offense has really improved. He's shown he can hit the mid range jumper and has a decent jump hook inside. Whether or not he keeps improving on offense, idk. But like you said, his strength as a player is hustling and energy. So whatever he gives us on offense is a bonus.

Pau would be an ATG if he had Hill's fire...this dude brings it no matter what...every loose ball, he truly feels, belongs to him

true that, if he could vastly improve and become more consistent from the 15-20ft, I would say Pau is that much more expendable, he already is but if I see Hill making those jumpers at a Bass/Haslem/Landry type effiency I wouldn't even mind seeing Hill start.

Has 'Antoni's phasing out of Hill begun? I hope not... :scurred:

Only 4 minutes tonight, does it's mean that Jordan Hill is already in MDA dog house?

Unlike Brown, it appears that D'Antoni is playing Jamison at PF. Which means if Hill gets minutes, he'll be playing C behind Dwight. Dwight played 39 minutes tonight.

Sure does seem like it. He's one of our best hustle power forwards in years. I would not be pleased to see him go.

it would suck if hes only gunna get these minutes. hes huge for our bench and i love playing jamison at the 4 but i think there is a way to play both.

IMO Jamison/Dwight lineup is good. and a Hill/Pau lineup would be good too. Allowing pau to play in the paint more. pretty much you start pau with dwight and halfway through the 1st and for the rest of the game you play those lineups for our front court.

Not to mention, I think he and D'Antoni didn't get along in NY.

Hill is all but done here in LA. Sucks. He was one of my favorite players!

Hill >>>the rest of the bench. So I really hope pringles doesn't punish anyone who doesn't put offense first. Seems like Pringles doesn't like defenders or people who like to rebound...And BTW, Offensive rebounds creates more offense.

Heck..I say move pau to the bench and have him play with the second unit and start Hill. Pau is aging real fast. He would do REAL well in the 2nd unit. Odom type thing. Still playing 30+ min. Hill and howard is a great defensive front court that will rebound everything. If Hill can hit that mid range like he has been that's enough to space the floor enough for howard to operate. Pringles system makes Jamison/meeks look good. I rather Howard/hill and pau look good...Doesn't that make sense? lol

This.

I actually posted this idea a few pages back in this thread...when hoping that Hill doesn't get lost in the MDA offense. I think this idea really has merit. Makes Howard more the focus in the starting unti and gives us some legit scoring off the bench through Pau. Pau might just have to suck it up and make it work.

He should be getting more minutes. Take 5 minutes from D12, 5 minutes from Pau and 5 minutes for himself.

D12 (35), Pau (8), Hill(5)
Jamison (20), Hill (10), Pau (18)

Now Pau can go hard for 26 minutes a night and have no excuses for fatigue.

Unfortunately, I don't know if he'll see any minutes; quite frankly, I think if the pattern continues to give him limited minutes, he might be traded. He's proved that if he finds the right niche he can excel. W

His skill set makes him the odd man out in this system which is unfortunate, but we have to go with what is most effective.

Hill needs to be playing more minutes. He's been our best player off the bench so far this season and right now Pau and Dwight are playing way too many minutes which is leading to them being fatigued.

worst idea ever ... there is no stretch at 4 .. hill is worse shooter than gasol and better post player then Howard ... they would took each other space ...

I'd like to see Hill get at least 15 minutes per game. With Pau suffering from tendonitis and Dwight coming off back surgery, I think both starting bigs should have their minutes cut a bit more. Jamison and Hill should receive more time.

u do realize that im talking about nash kobe and mwp all starting also... mwp has turned himself into a pretty reliable shooter now... we have shooters from 1 to 3... we wouldnt need to have a stretch 4...
