Antawn Jamison Discussion: Cockroach

He is starting to exceed what we even signed him for. I mean we knew he could score and such, but I think his defense has not been that bad. He is also VERY active on the boards. Sure he was always a pretty solid rebounder, but man he seems like he can get a double double with ease right now off the bench!

We got him for the minimum...and that's what really makes this move great. I can't wait until Nash returns. Jamison is great at making cuts and moving to open areas of the floor. He's going to excel with Nash.

I'm glad he's getting the starting nod tonight. Although, I would have liked to see it when Nash was PG, though. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Nevertheless, he's going to stretch the floor, cut & move without the ball, and can finish around the rim.

Defensively, he's going to be a liability. He's just as bad if not worse then Gasol in help defense. Case in point was the Orlando game; he was awful when Orlando went and scored on 12 straight possessions. I hope his effort is there tonight and really gives it is all on that end.

If the defense becomes an issue MDA will be forced to play Hill who should help defensively.

I think defensively against Patterson, it's a better match up for Jamison. Jamison struggles against mobile PF's that are stronger than him...aka Glen Davis, who has notoriously killed us regardless of who's guarding him. I think we'll see a much better effort from Jamison tonight simply because the guy he's guarding isn't a post up, take you off the dribble kind of guy. He can hit jumpers and 3s so his game is more like Jamison's if anything.

Jamison has to play big tonight on both ends. Hill should give him necessary rest as well as Clark and maybe even Ebanks if theyre playing small.

Well when you have Kobe and Dwight on the same team you'll always have a chance.

I don't think it would be the least bit surprising, honestly.

Two superstars, two former all-stars in our starting lineup even with Pau out. We SHOULD be winning, and now our personnel better matches the system we're running.

The funny thing is that I added Jamison on my fantasy team the night before Pau announced to be out.

Jamison's scoring and rebounding well.

His D's not atrocious. It depends what you're asking him to do. He does very well against smaller players.

Jamison had a good offensive game. He is a horrible team defender, though. Overall, I think we're going to get some decent production on the offensive end since he is playing 4 right now. Defensively, he does give effort which is all you can ask for...

Jamison would make up for his poor defensive rotations with offense. Wait, it can't happen unless Kobe passes him the ball.

Great game. Just wish he actually was given the ball in the entire 2nd half. He was shooting like 60% and 75% from 3 and Kobe didnt pass to him once in the 2nd half.

I really thought he could have gone for a ton of points and really helped out in the 4th but he just was never passed to for some reason. he was on tonight, sucks maybe it could have made a difference down the stretch

Kobe's being asked to handle his role & Nash's role.. If that means Nash getting the ball as often as Kobe is now, I see great things ahead for Jamison.

I love this signing, I always believed he would come around even though some people here called him garbage. I love his game & he comes in to do his job like a true professional that he is.

With Pau out Jamison's confidence should continue to go up and hopefully that translates if/when he goes back to the bench. And when Nash returns he should be getting even better looks.

We expected Jamison to be bad on d, so he is playing up to if not better than what we expected. The problem is the team offense as a whole can't make up for majority of the players not playing good d, especially when Kobe goes into chuck mode. Our offense is inconstant right now because of Kobe, when Nash returns it really may fix our losing problem if Kobe does let him dominate the ball. Nash will start the offense and get EVERYONE involved all game. The games Kobe has around 7-8 assists, we blew teams out basically. When Kobe goes into to chuck mode, we lose. Offense is inconstant because we are asking Kobe to run the PG position consistently when he is obviously not mentally capable of having that pass first mindset in multiple games, but thats why he is naturally a SG.
