Please offer him another short contract.

Just what the doctor ordered. Until tonight he hasn't had a big scoring game this month. Those 17 points were really needed. Way to step up :jam2: Such a great guy to have on the pine.

Man he was bombing 3s tonight, hit some HUGE shots. He put on a little show there in I believe the 3rd quarter.

One of the night's heroes. Savy, provided a huge spark in the 2nd Q and was clutch to finish the game off. PROPS.

Fantastic game from Tawn. Even though he is old...he is still better than most of what we have had on the bench for the last decade. He is a scorer, knows how to cut, can shoot etc. Just a smart player on offense.

Very happy with him overall.

Very true. He's one of the best role-players we've had in recent history.

I really hope we can resign him this summer, we need to keep our key role players, get a couple more, and get rid of the dead weight. I know he wasn't happy earlier this season but hopefully the way everything has gone the past month or two will incline him to stay.

Either he retires or he comes back for another year. I think he will come back to the Lakers for another season for sure. No doubt.

So nice to see him come into his own. I'd love to see extended time with he and Pau. Pau in the post, and Jamison moving.

11 points 6 rebounds a game since the all-star break....on 50% shooting (40% from three). Very impressed with his efficiency and intelligence. Hope he comes back for another year.

Hope he still gets minutes with Pau back. He makes smart plays to get open for easy points during key stretches while guys are resting. Ron can give us a better effort on defense if his minutes are limited a bit to keep playing Jamison & Clark when Dwight or Pau is sitting. Hope we make a strong enough run in the playoffs to convince him that this is the place to ringchase again next season.

i agree with everyone else. WHen i watch games and i see him hit timely shots or get key offensive boards by being in the right place, i'm always like ' who is that guy' for half a second and then realize it's a crafty veteran that we picked up that is actually doing the work. Give him a contract.

With Pau being more rested it's better than Clark playing C with Jamison at PF.

Jamison is really good. He rarely misses games, is a very talented scorer, but Brown never knew how to use him. "Small forward".... right.

Jamison needs minutes and he needs to be confident; he can't defend much, but he's a scorer and therefore he should get the ball often. It's not easy to stop him when he is on, because he is tall, surprisingly nimble for a 36-year old PF, and he always hits those unorthodox shots.

This.

What a spark off the bench he's been lately. His 3ball is really looking good, and he keeps moving off the ball so well.
