This. I hoped him, Hill & Jamison would provide just that (Hill = hustle) but 'Tawn isn't even playing. MWP off the bench has been exactly that these past few games (I still rather Metta started though).

Antoni really should stop with the BS of trying to start Meeks/Morris or whoever else that doesn't deserve to start...Peace will do fine starting, Jamison needs to play as the backup 4 so we can keep our starters minutes down :bang:

Harden lite? Meeks can't dribble.

I agree though, as he seems to get a bit lost among the starters.

No. Shaky handles, court vision and decision making. Defenders will crowd him and he does not have Miller or Allen type of off the ball movement at this point. I do like the effort he gives on every play.
No siggie...

Yesterday he seemed to be rushing his shots. I still like the energy he brings on defense. Just needs to settle down on offense, while still being aggressive.

It's a good thing that defenders will crowd him. More space for Kobe, Pau, D12.

Spaces the floor a heck of alot better than Morris. Defensive falloff from Morris isn't all that bad.

I love this guys energy, and he is a great shooter... But... If we are trying to keep our turnovers down, he can not be a starter. Horrible dribbler. Start MWP, get Antawn going and we should be fine.
