God either give this kid the playing time he earned, or let him go to the D-league because this guy cannot rot on the bench with only 12 mins or less a game.

You really think Mini Mamba would rather be playing more minutes in crappy D league than staying in the Los Angles Lakers' playing rotation with less minutes and getting skill time against the best in the world on the biggest stage with the teammates he's playing with? Doubt it. Not better for him either.

IMO, Goudelock is a better shooting version of Jordan Farmar, which isn't bad. Just keeping a check on reality.

Lin is sort of like a Tom Brady story or the Kurt Warner story. Out of nowhere to become a star. That's not the norm. It's fairytale like.

BTW, just recalled that Goudelock was drafted by the Globetrodders. Anyone know why?

I'm guessing he was drafted by the Globetrotters because of his ability to hit from VERY deep. His range is pretty ridiculous.

As for Lin being likened to Brady or Warner... :man10: :man10: :man10:

not even close, at least not yet anyway. It's still WAY too early to start making those types of comparisons.

I'm not sure if this has been posted, but I just heard on 710 ESPN that Goudelock is 3rd in the league in spot up 3pters. Wow. He's a 2nd round rookie too.

And he wasn't invited to the 3 point contest.

Figures--one of the best shooters in the league is not even getting any playing time for one of the worst shooting teams in the league. How ironic. :bang:

It's not really surprising. He was the best shooter in the draft, better even than the savior Fredette.

This link is for M. Bresnahan cover article on J.R. Smith and Lakers in the hunt with limited resources & at end Ebanks being sent to D league. But great stuff below .....literally for the Mini Mamba...already a "mini" Jeremy Lin" story going on. It was really touch and go in December whether Brown was going to keep him, and he sensed it. I hope this guy gets big cheers now at Staples every time he runs onto the floor. A really bright spot to the season so far. :bow: :bow: :bow:

http://www.latimes.com/sports/basketbal ... 8118.story

Good luck

It's not quite the Jeremy Lin story, but there was some luck for 'Lock.

Goudelock had a sinking feeling in training camp, the type that usually ends with a general manager calling a player into his office and saying, "You've done everything we've asked, but…."

Indeed, Goudelock thought he would be cut by the Lakers in December.

"It was to the point where I was calling my agent and said, 'Man, look, these guys aren't really liking me. My opportunities might have to come somewhere else because I don't get any reps in practice. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be here long,' " Goudelock said.

It's not unusual these days if the rookie leads the Lakers' point guards in scoring. He had 10 points in 14 minutes Tuesday against Atlanta.

"The reality of it is I was close to cutting him at one point earlier in the year," Brown said recently. "Who would have thunk that he would have been my backup point guard and played well for us when he got thrown into the fire?"

A second-round draft pick last year from the College of Charleston, Goudelock has made an impression with his strong three-point accuracy (43.2%) and driving teardrop shots that fall almost perfectly over taller defenders' hands.

He's just happy to have a job.

"Almost being cut, I was at the lowest point I've ever been," Goudelock said. "I was calling my parents because I didn't know what else to do. I said, 'I'm sorry. I came out here and did everything I can, but it's just not going to work.' God works in mysterious ways. I don't know how it happened."

Well Glock isn't going to get cut anymore....that's all that counts. Brown needs to find a way to keep him on the floor longer. He needs to work on his handles...because if he's going to get more floortime, it's not going to be as Kobe's backup, it's going to be as Fish' backup.

Wow. That's a nice story. I'm glad we kept this kid, sheesh. Imagine the bench without him... *shudder*

Oh, I don't know Mike. He was only the 4th leading scorer in the NCAA last season. I guess you can't expect too much.

can we start this guy and play him 30 min a game. i mean any other year i'd say no but for godsakes its not like he'd do any worse than fisher or blake. besides i'd be interested in seeing his production.

is there any way fisher and blake can suffer painless, non-crippling, no future physical effects, but still out for the season injuries.

even better can blake and fisher both discover christ and become evangelists
