I really don't like him, he reminds me of a poor mans Greg Ostertag...but the Lakers do need a backup for Shaq...

chenowith as a backup center

Postby laker fan on Sun Jul 13, 2003 3:11 pm

Check out prosource.com for all the summer league stats. As far as I can tell Chenowith isn't playing all that badly. He's young; a big body, and is more than capable of spelling Shaq for 5-10 minutes. So what if he's like Ostertag. He's a legit 7' 1" and playing pretty good defense and grabbing a lot of boards.

I think he'll be invited to the LAKERS Training camp along with Leon Smith.... their performance there will decided if they will play for the LAKERS this season. We only have one spot available... interesting who gets it. Leon Smith is playing very well also... he's listed at 6'11"

opinion of laker backup center

Postby laker fan on Sun Jul 13, 2003 3:43 pm

You're right. Leon Smith is playing very well also. I guess I am just concerned about his past. Not that someone doesn't deserve a second chance, but I just think Chenowith might be more mature mentally. We'll just have to wait and see.

Once you start basing free agint signings on summer league stats, thats when you start not making the playoffs....seriously summer leagues are all B-class talent playing against c and d class talent. I dont take too much out of performances there because anyone can have a hot shooting day. I mean Tracy murray dropping 37....get real.....In order to make players better they have to play with league proffessionals and veterans i think. Just a thought....I would not like to see Chenowith here.....he was a piece in college and im sure hes still a piece. Cant we got someone like Mutombo?......If not who cares who plays 7 minutes a game at backup center....its the weak spot of almost every NBA team anyway....so what if Slava gets in at C for 10 minutes....i mean is Zilcho Rebracca gonna torch him for 6 points???........forget Chenowith and lets get horry back

We already have backcourt depth. A backup for Kobe won't help us, we've got three solid guards already. Phil has already suggested possibly playing Kobe at the 3, and a double PG situation in Payton and Fish. Or, he might switch it around and play Fish coming off the bench for Payton.

It is DEPTH that gives Phil this kind of flexibility. To make adjustments during a game. We don't have that ability in the frontcourt. We need another big man. However, not at the expense of our backcourt depth.

That is the reason that we need to resign Horry LakersFan2003. He has the game to play at SF or PF. We sign Horry and we have the backup that we need.

Slava can backup Shaq
Horry can backup Malone and George
Rush can backup Kobe
Fisher can backup GP

We also have Walton, Cook and Fox when he returns.

I say again - All we need to do is resign Horry

summer league website

Postby laker fan on Mon Jul 14, 2003 1:54 pm

Whoever put prosource. com up there that's what it used to be. It's now called proexposure.com. That seems to be the best website I have seen for summer league stuff. As far as Chenowith goes, who else is out there who provides us a legit backup center? Sean Rooks? Kevin Willis? I just don't know who else is available. Chenowith is better than nothing.

Slava is 6'10 and doesn't rebound. Someone explain to me how he can possibly be a backup center.

because he will be playing alongside MALONE KOBE PAYTON... that is why it will work!!! There are NO true CENTERS in this league besides YAO and DIVACS... For 10 MINUTES of time I think we can LIVE with ERIC at that spot.. for 10 MINUTES!!

Yes thats understandable but why not go after Vladmir Stephania who is a proven rebounder in this league at 7 boards per game last year.

Maybe because Vlad might want more than a minimum contract, Chenowith is the real deal, trust me we could do a lot worse than a young, hungry and hard working 7'1 270 lb man...and he can shoot well for a big man too, he is good...LeBron must suck then if the Summer League is no judge because he hasn't thrown down 37 like T-Murray...so it is one way or the other...Kareem and Pargo looked better than last year and coincedentally, they have been tirelessly working with Devean to improve their collective skills...

True but with two rookies already aboard would you take a chance with yet another minimal experienced guy ah shoot what am I saying ofcourse we should sign Chenowith. The worst that can happen is he'll end up on the IR then we can grab Pike. All I don't wan't is an undersized center thats all.
