That applies toward Howard too. I guess strong guys are going to be penalized in this new flopping era.

Were the Mavs flopping the night before too ? ... the guy has just a terrible offensive B-Ball IQ , stop finding excuses for everything ...
If you can't handle the ball and run the floor , give the ball to your point guard is the rule ... how many times Metta has done that ? I'm more comfortable with Pau running the break than Metta

Did I say the Mavs were flopping? I was referring only to the game against Portland. I actually thought he played pretty poorly against Dallas as well.

Yeah, who said anything about the Mavs game? I already said he played poorly in that game.

Bench him. He literally gets the ball and it either passes it back to the original passer or goes iso and chucks up a terrible shot. How many 3s did he take, 7 or 8? It's so frustrating watching this guy fumble around like the drunk guy at the rec center thinking he's Kobe.

He takes more shots then Dwight and Pau at this point. Fortunately, he compensates for it by playing no defense and dribbling a lot, which results in turnovers.

It's not his conditioning, it's not his mental state, it is his overall basketball skill level. He cant even dribble the ball!

useless. looked awesome in preseason and I actually thought he'd be great for us. I was wrong. he's just as bad as he was during the beginning of last season. at least then we were still winning.

he's ot to accept his current role as its not 2004 no matter how he feels. he's been terrible so far though. NOT the metta we were seeing weeks ago

I like the activity, but Ron, slow your role. You're not option 1 on this offense.

Though I'm sure no one on this team is sure when to shoot except for Kobe.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Metta looked good in the preseason. Now he's resorted back to overdribbling and taking ill-advised shots.

I don't want to hear anyone saying that Artest is a good defender anymore, because he is not. Hasn't been one for the last 2 years. He is useless.

You know me...I love to pile it on Mike when the opportunity presents itself.

Metta after the Clippers game in the postgame said that the Lakers did not have a day off for the last 8 days. In that stretch we played 3 games in 4 nights and in between we had Coach All Day Every Day work them to the ground.

It was a bad Detroit team, but that day off they got yesterday probably attributed to this blowout.

And a general rule of thumb Weez, if there's a problem, its probably Brown's fault. :man12:

I feel bad for the ball and the floor when he dribbles. It's like he's dribbling a cannon ball.

I wasn't aware because I missed the game, but it's good to see MWP play as well as he did and bounce back after an awful start to the season. He just needs to keep it up and develop some consistency.

Metta World Peace will get minutes at shooting guard, Lakers Coach Mike Brown said.

"That's going to be my second unit," said Brown. "Metta will be the two, [Antawn] Jamison is the three, [Jordan] Hill is the four and [Dwight] Howard or Pau [Gasol] is going to be the five.

Morris / MWP / Jamison / Hill / Pau....

No words to explain that 5 man unit.....


So now Ebanks AND Meeks are going to get frozen out of the lineup. :man10: :man10:

^^^ It will stop when we play semi-good teams and top level teams because they will wipe the floor with that group.

All you have to do is pack the paint and let all those guys shoot any type of jumper you want.

What???? That simply can't be true.

Morris can't shoot, can't finish, and doesn't see the floor well. He will see tons of full court pressure.

Metta -- can't shoot, can't dribble, can't finish, and can't jump.

jamison -- can't defend small athletic wings, and has trouble finishing.

Hill is a good rebounder and energy guy, but can't shoot, can't pass, and can't finish well on a break.

Gasol -- would have to be the playmaker. :disagree:

This is beyond stupid. When Meeks could at least space the floor, along with Jamison.

I hope this clown coach is fired before he totally ruins this team. Mitch and Jim can't be this stupid...

Ron at the 2? He's not a ball handler. Darius Morris has no business being on the court at all. Not sure what Mike is thinking here. We won't even make it past half court with moderate pressure. Maybe he's just thinking out loud I hope.

We have the personnel, there's no need to play guys out of position.
