That's just Ron being Ron. Never know what you are going to get. But hopefully there is good D involved at least.

Some nights its for good reasons, others you want to pull your hair out, but Ron always provides entertainment.

I cant help but laugh watching him dribble since half the time he looks like its the first time he's ever touched a basketball. :man10:

Metta simply has to play D and shoot set shots. That's all. Why can't he realize that?

Metta is doing what is expected of him, Pau is the weaker link in my opinion because more is expected in which he doesn't deliver.

That open 3 in the corner. It's killing me. That was the game right there.

This guy is averaging SIX three points attempts a game ... a decent part of them isn't even the result of being left wide open by the opponent D

he does some really good things and then some really puzzling things. glad he only had 1TO this game, but dont like 8 3's. when your hot okay,but 2-8 isnt good at all.

He did play good D on parker and when he was on him Parker didnt do much. I think his 3's sometimes in rhythm are better than his set shots. sometimes hell just shoot a 3 that looks just like a 2 and it goes in and we dont thin much of it.

If Mitch can package Gasol and Ron for a legit PF and outside shooter it will stamp his ticket to the Hall of Fame.

Do it Mitch!

Not so entertained when throws up a three drifting to his left with plenty of time left on the shot clock.

After a while you come to realize that the curse is when he makes a couple of them and then he's got license to keep chucking the rest of the game.

Tonight, down the stretch he cost us...not just because he missed but because he wasted possessions with his dumb decisions.

You guys might not like him shooting that many 3s a game but really that's basically his role on this team. No room for him in the post so he needs to be a floor spacer. Unfortunately he's not very good so opponents are just sagging off him.

Catch 22. He's gotta shoot them because he's wide open and it's the flow of the offense. If he doesn't, you get a worse shot and/or a 3 second violation. But like you said, he's not good at them.

I have a solution: Ship his a@@ out.

He's been the biggest disappointment so far for me this season. After the good play at the end of last season and coming back this year in great shape, I expected to see a whole new Metta.
