i honestly would rather see ebanks start if were gunna keep playing metta on the bench at the 4.
kobe at the 3 or 2 is the same imo so why not take morris out of the equation, hold kobe accountable to actually play defense on his man, and play ebanks at the 3 who can defend, plays hard, crashes the boards, gets back quick, gets out and runs for easy points who nash can easily find. tell him to not shoot 3's and too calm down and not shoot so much. rather get your points from cutting, putbacks, and free throws.
if ebanks knows his role with the starters his youth, length, athleticism, etc will be a huge help to our starters and i think defense too. Morris is good defensively but nothing else. If kobe does what hes supposed to and plays D like everyone else in the league then ebanks can be great at the 3.
he'll only play limited minutes so if dantoni enforces his role i think hed be awesome.
