He has no court vision whatsoever, every time he dribbles someone will be open, but he literally is glued straight ahead or looking down at the ball.

And when did he think it was acceptable to get a rebound on the defensive end and just take off with it and bring up the court? I almost don't want him to get rebounds because I know he's just going to turn and take off with the ball and do God knows what with it.

I have thought this before and i still think it, Artest might cost us a championship. His role in this offense is to the hit the open 3 because no one gives a crap about his shooting and leaves him wide open. If he can't hit them consistently, he is hurting the team. I just cringe everytime he takes a 3. And what the heck is up with him blowing kisses to the crowd when he hits a 3? Are his standards this low now that everytime he hits a 3, he celebrates? :bang:

Can you guys imagine how much more dangerous our offense would be if we had a deadly spot up shooter to replace Artest?

No thanks, another guy bricking all his shots. I'd give the Wizards a call about Ariza though, not like they're doing anything this year.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Replace Metta with Batum , Pau with Millsap and this starting 5 would be head and shoulders above the rest of the league

I feel like Metta is actually playing better than last year. I am not saying he is really playing well, the stats do not back that up by any means, but I feel like he is playing better. Yeah, he is still jocking up some shots ... IDK maybe its just the last two games.

hes def been playing better but this season hes increased his offensive role on his own. hes doing "too much" and taking a lot of shots that should be dwights and paus imo. as long as kobe shoots this efficiently there will be more shots to go around and they should go to dwight and pau before metta

he needs to be shane battier for us, but with his new, in shape body he wants to do more with it

He'll have the same freedom with Antoni ... the good thing ? He will be benched just after he bricked three shots in a row

That is funny, "you're whole job is recess". :man10:

Very good game from MWP tonight, 22 points, knocking down threes, most importantly one of the only guys playing defense though. He was 5-7 at one point on 3's, he just kept shooting because it was garbage time and ended up 5-10, but he had a better night than that.

22 points wow. had a really good game. he was got from 3 at one point but got cold. I'm not too mad he took 10 3's bc they were good shots and was in a rhythm tonight. with this offense hell be okay. more catch and shoot less dribble

Great game. Hopefully he doesn't stink it up on Sunday. Consistency! That's the key for this guy

Hes not gonna be this blazing hot every night but at least knock down a decent percentage of em ....36 is reasonable. We need his defense more.

i've always maintained that if metta is hot, then this team is unstoppable

i wish his offensive numbers were the same as they were 10 years ago but if he can put up 15+ pts and 5+ rebs per game this team will be on a roll

hes gunna have to keep increasing his defensive intensity if hes gunna be doing this much on offense. no way we beat the clips if he doesnt shut down crawford...hes been unreal this year. think we should have ebanks guard him too and use his length. mwp and ebanks are gunna have to play defense first bc no way jamison and meeks can defend clips bench
