Poor Meeks.


You mean Guard-forward? Combo guard would imply he can play some PG, he cant.

Guard-Forward when going small. Gives him some extra minutes, maybe. He looks taller then Kobe. And is certainly heavier.

"Combo wing" sounds better actually.

I'd say just on potential alone he should get the 14th or 15th spot ahead of the rest of the end of the bench guys (odom, Landry, Gadzuric, maybe Kelly).

Gadz looks pretty big. Maybe around ~250 now.

:jam2: no Dwight.... No problem :man1:
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Awesome. That's a W. Great job by Swaggy, Farmar, X, Kaman. I am seriously impressed with these guys.

We won a preseason game! :jam2: :man10: Our first preseason win in 2 years, maybe 3 because I can't remember if we won any of the 2 preseason games in the lockout season.

Seriously though, no Kobe, Nash, or Pau, Warriors played all their guys, I'll take it.

Well, Farmar/Kaman/Young aren't exactly D-League talents. But people like X are nobodies in this league, but they played their a--es off.

Fun team to watch. Especially when the young guys are playing.

Good win. Xavier Henry was on fire, in addition to Nick Young.

Dwight Howard has picked up his second technical foul and has been ejected in his Rockets debut.


YES, thanks! That's too effing funny and awesome at the same time. Panties already in a bunch. :man10:

It's only exhibition, but boy it was nice to see us win.

The good: I thought our bigs played quite well - Kaman still has that nice mid-range touch, and even Sacre and Gadzurich were good out there. Hill was decent - kind of did his usual, rebounds some, got some garbage points.

Young really did what he does best - scoring in bunches. Farmar was nice and aggressive, good to see that from him. He's still very confident/cocky and it works for him.

Xavier Henry was very intriguing. I like this kid's hustle a lot. I thought he shot the ball just a little too much, but hard to argue when he's raking up 27 points! And 7 boards to go with it, too. So he earned it. Like the fact that he's a lefty, too.

On the downside of things - Meeks is the same old meekness. Just did not really make much impact at all. A nice shot here or there, but porous D, and just not that effective overall.

Johnson did not impress me much. And he should NOT be playing the 4. He got tossed around on the block. He's not built for that. He was kind of a non-entity tonight. I don't see him starting at the three any time soon for this team if tonight was any sort of indicator. But maybe Xavier Henry will be. Williams was just ok out there.
