I was a big fan of Jodie but I am glad we didn't give him that contract. Good on him for getting paid.
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.

I was a fan too. :man10:

I think most people hated him though. I don't think he fake hustled... I think he real hustled, he's just not that good so it didn't look legit...

Meeks laid out the effort, was professional and did his biz. Yes, he wasn't very good on defense but at least he tried.

exactly. There were only a few guys who I knew would bring it and Meeks was one of them. His d wasn't amazing but neither was anyone else for that matter on the team. He may not of been great at it but at least he tried and I personally enjoyed seeing the evolution of his offensive game from simple shooter. I thought he was a good role player which is why 3/19 is crazy. so to that I say enjoy Deeeeeettttttrrrrrrroooooooiiiiitttttbaaaaaaasssssssskkkkkkeeeeettttt ball.

If Meeks got 3 year 20 mil, Stan Van Gundy is going to be the next Isiah Thomas, and have no reason to be in charge of an organization. That is a really terrible contract for Detroit if true.

The guy is better than David Blaine!! A master of illusion!

You think Meeks is in front of his man and all of a sudden, POOF, his man goes right through him or he raises up to shoot a wide open shot as if Meeks wasn't even there. Illusionists practice their art and Meeks is as good as any at it.

Not our problem anymore :jam2:

Could there be a more annoying basketball experience than being at a Detroit game? :man10:

Meeks knew what is up. The Lakers weren't likely to contend this season. They won't offer him what he feels he's worth. With 24 coming back plus Young possibly being on board, he'd be relegated to spot minutes which will affect his consistency and development. Can't blame Meeks for that. This fan appreciates he did not dog it every game, every possession. I've seen more heralded players take plays off more...

I would be absolutely shocked if Jodie got another offer even in the same realm as this. I can't imagine he got many more offers that were even 3/12 million or so.

He'd have been a fool to pass on this much money. Good for him. I hope he has a lot of success over there.

Congrats to him for somehow managing to get that much money, because he is worth half of it at best.

This contract that Jodie got is much better and deserving than the likes of CJ Miles, Ben Gordon, Livingston though...

Jodie was probably our most consistent player all season last year. Good for him.

Sad to see him go, he had a hell of a year. I was expecting him to get around 3 years 15 mill at most. Good for him.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

Terrible contract but it's nice to see Jodie getting paid ... as much as I criticized him , he always worked his arse off and seems to be a good human being

I'll agree with that.

I want him no where near my team, but I wish him the best of luck and congrats on his big contract.
