He doesn't have any trade value, but he's valuable here. His shot wasn't falling tonight, but he worked his a** off on the floor for us. The dude is a fighter and that's going to come into play for us.

Yeah, I know real. His offense comes and goes (boy does it go), but his effort and D are always there.

No doubt he's going to play a role defensively, I just wish he knew when to cool his jets on offense and no pound the rock every time he gets it.

He's just gotta relax more on offense. Not be so trigger happy, and he'll be fine.

His offense doesn't just go, it packs itself into Apollo 13 and explodes in the atmosphere.

But like he just showed, that hard work will pay off with him. With some other guys it won't, but I'll always believe in his ability to hit shots.

And for me it's honestly difficult to be mad at him for too long for taking ill-advised shots because of all that work he puts in on the other side of the ball

Yeah I was just thinking the same thing. Every time I think "dammit Metta!" he steals the ball or boxes someone out or blocks a shot or something like that and I think "oh yeah..."

If he played defense like he did tonight nobody would care if he goes 0/10...that impact he makes on defense would make his missed shots negligible.

I usually respect your opinions, but I just totally disagree with you. He's going to be vital to our team down the stretch. I'll put money on it.

It's cool .. can't agreed all the time ... I just think he's hurting our offense really bad right now and has for a while ( minus last April and decent playoffs) ... his head isn't into the game at all

He played hard tonight but was complete and utter trash on offense. He needs to limit the 3's and cut down on the dribbling. I'd like to see him closer to the basket every once in a while abusing the weaker forwards in the paint.

He is a very useful player, but needs to play under control. Do things he does well. Play defense, hustle, rebound. Take some open shots. That's about it. He should not be forcing anything.

The only thing is when he is off like he was last night, he really needs to stop forcing the dribble and shots so much. Otherwise, I can't really be upset with the guy. We will have plenty of scoring with our first team, and he will not be THAT bad anyway consistently. His defense is what makes him needed.

THANK YOU METTA FOR YOUR TIME AS THE BACKUP 2 GUARD. This had to be one of the final nails in Potato's coffin for the F.O. Let Meeks rot on bench and do THIS. Audios M-effer!!

That was some PATHETIC basketball from MWP on the offensive end for 3 quarters of the game. Him and Blake clanking wide open 3's......ugly just ugly.

MWP: "You can call me Ron".
He was definitely Ron tonight :jam2:

Metta looks like a scrub in one game, then has a "star shooter" performance in the next. I don't get it.
