So basically he's out of the rotation because Brown is preparing the team for the playoffs which Mini Mamba has no experience in... don't think this "old" article has been posted yet

By Mark Medina

Coach Mike Brown doesn't plan to use rookie guard Andrew Goudelock in the regular rotation much anymore.

He appeared only in garbage time in the Lakers' 109-93 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday and didn't play in the Lakers' loss to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday. Brown said the reason has less to do with Ramon Sessions' arrival to the Lakers' backcourt and more to do with the postseason awaiting in a little more than a month.

"We're shrinking it a little bit," Brown said of his rotation.

Because of that, Brown in recent games has paired Sessions with multiple guards, including Kobe Bryant and Steve Blake. Meanwhile, Brown has played forward Matt Barnes at shooting guard while Metta World Peace played at small forward. Goudelock's strong outside shooting (36.2% from three-point range) helped elevate his time in the rotation, but concerns arise on whether an inexperienced player could sustain such performances in the playoffs.

'Goudelock has been good for us and had some great experience," Brown said of his rookie guard, who is averaging 4.4 points in 10.7 minutes a game. "He needs to keep himself mentally and physically ready in case his number is called. But we're about to get busy right here. If I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it with some guys who have been to the dance before. Metta has been there and Matt has been there."

Good mentality

By Mark Medina

March 24, 2012, 7:16 p.m.
The competitor in Lakers rookie guard Andrew Goudelock wishes he could remain on the court. Yet, Goudelock maintained a pragmatic view regarding the plan by Lakers Coach Mike Brown to keep him out of the rotation since the postseason awaits in a little more than a month.

"It's an experience thing," said Goudelock, who's averaging 4.4 points in 10.7 minutes a game. "I'm a rookie, obviously. We got a lot of experienced guys on this team and it's close to playoff time. The knowledge and experience they have is very valuable. That's the biggest component of it that he expressed to me."

Brown first told reporters about his tightened rotation before the Lakers' 103-96 victory Friday over the Portland Trail Blazers. But Goudelock said Brown talked with him privately earlier in the week about his reduced playing time. The rookie hasn't played in two of the last three games, and his stint in the Lakers' win Wednesday over the Dallas Mavericks came in garbage time. That's a far cry from when the Lakers regularly leaned on Goudelock's 36.2% shooting mark from three-point range earlier in the season.

Instead of bemoaning his demotion, Goudelock said he'll simply work more on his game. He and rookie guard Darius Morris already arrive early for pregame workouts and stay late after practice to work on ballhandling and shooting drills.

Goudelock plans to elevate that routine by watching more film and working on drills that will improve his ballhandling, pick-and-roll execution, defense and conditioning. He also will monitor a sore right Achilles' tendon that he said he injured recently, requiring him to ice after games and wear extra padding in his sneakers.

"I understand what's going on. I just have to keep working hard. Everything will be all right," Goudelock said. "I just have to stay ready. You can never get too high and never get too low. Things like this happen. We're winning. I don't have a problem with it. Everybody loves to play so you want to be out there. But at the same time, you can't control certain situations."

Poor kid is suffering from Mike Brown's decision making... I'm not entirely sure what Blake is offering these days that Goudelock couldn't. A little bit of size defensively? I mean, he's not a strong defender but neither is Blake.

Blake doesn't really deserve to play anymore. I'm not sure why they wouldn't at least give the rook a try.

^It especially annoys me when Brown plays Blake and Sessions together. Neither of them are SG's.

You are tightening down you playoff rotations by leaving guys out that can contribute more than guys in the rotation?

That Clown needs a swift kick upside the head.

Basically. K-G-B will be run into the ground and when help does arrive it will be in the form of subpar players, while better ones sit out. Thanks but no thanks.

Yeah I had a game like this with a friend. He played with the Bulls and said I should leave Kobe out because I can't play without ... so did he with Rose. Next thing is Gl0ck hitting 3 after 3 :man10: :man10: and he goes like "wtf is this Clockkid"

No offense, but we knew it was going to happen because rookies especially our rookies don't see much playing time in the playoffs anyway.

Said it before and I'll say it again. Brown has proven to be an extremely conservative coach. It's ironic because some of the early supporters were saying he was doing things Phil would never do like play his young players. But GLOCK was actually performing very well with the second unit and Brown just shut him out now.

I just get this feeling that Brown does not have a good sense of his players and what will work. Phil had head scratching moments every season, but at the end of the day you basically knew who was going to be out there. I don't think the current bench has any clue as to who will be in at any given time. There's not enough season left to be this clueless when it comes to your rotations.

It doesn't take a genius to see that Sessions and Blake at the same time isn't a great idea. Sessions and Barnes? Sure, they're working great together. Barnes and Artest should split minutes. Blake with GLOCK? Works great. It's not rocket science.

Can't believe this guy was having such a good rookie season having come out of nowhere and now he's benched for no reason. At this point I'd almost rather he was our backup 1 instead of Blake, a scoring guard off the bench, not like he can't pass either, he has quickness and can draw 2 and hit the open man.

Not maybe, it's definitely time. I'm done with Blake, it's time to let the Rook get a shot. If for no other reason to get Blake's damn attention and let him know his play has been unacceptable.

he was top 5 on the rookie charts and now has dnp...so dumb. playing sessions with glock instead of blake would prob be awesome and productive and build the rookies confidence and thus contribute even more. sure his d isnt up to par but whose is on our team and thats why you work with him not just shut it out. mike cmon anyone can see that sesh would make glock better.

He doesn't have playoff experience so he is locked out of the rotation until next season because Brown already has his dumb a** rotations set for the playoffs and like utilizing an 8 man rotation because he thinks this is college ball.

Morris / Glock / Ebanks / Hill are all better than Blake and get no burn. Hill I can understand, but the first 3 are perimeter players that can offer WAY more than 2 pts, a couple turnovers and horizontal passing, but alas Blake has playoff experience.


So does Scalabrine but you don't see that fat curly headed f*** leaving the bench.

mike browns an idiot. forget play off experience and a stupid 8 man rotation. glock was playing great for a rookie and balled in college. 2500 points in college on 62 others have ever done that. hes got the floater and he can shoot the 3. id take him at the 2 that blake whos too afraid to shoot and gives us 2 points 2 ast and 2 to on a great night. id rather have a guy who isnt afraid of the moment and isnt afraid to score in the playoffs than a guy whos afraid and is just wasting a spot so were playing 4v5 on offense and defense. rookies have more to prove and they want to prove what they can do. a vet like blake doesnt care as much bc hes already been through it and is okay with not doing anything. kobe, drew, and glock are the only true scorers on out roster and with the offense struggling as much as ours does in the 2nd unit its obvious to play glock. when you did he produced and can only get better. he gave laker fans hope and got us all going when he made a 3 or just a floater bc we ALL root for him and want him to do well. no one cares if blake gets 2 points bc we all know thats all hes gunna get, with glock were happy and know well get more from him.

mike brown needs to figure it out. blake barnes metta troy/pau/mcbob line up is utter crap and is consistantly losing leads and momentum for us. blake and glock gave you buckets period. blake isnt gunna shoot hes gunna pass and glock is gunna atack and shoot. cmon mb! :bang:

he isnt called mini-mamba bc he warms the bench well. hes a scorer and has proven it. let him be the back up sg with blake or sesh instead of a sf doing it and giving us 0 points when hes in for kobe.

in a stretch of 7 games at the end up January through the beginning of February where he play more minutes and was given a real chance outside of garbage blowout minutes. he gave us about 10pts a game on 49.5% from the field and 51% from 3. thats all we could want and more from a backup sg for kobe to get rest or even just to play with blake so our bench has some production and threat. when given consistent minutes he got into the flow and a rhythm that carried into each game he played during that stretch and then was never given the same consistent chance again and now in locked on the bench with DNP. with the amount of practice and time that has passed we can only assume hes gotten a little better and learned more defensively too.

just as some examples against playoff teams 2nd units and some starters too:
vs dallas: 6pts on 50% from 3, 0to in 10 mins in a win
vs miami: 7pts on 50% from 3, 1to in 10 mins in a win
vs boston: 5pts on 67% fg and 100% from 3, 0to in a win

in that 7 game stretch with more mins he gave us: 14,13,7,12,13,4,9 & 1to in each
