D-Jones
 
I saw today on ESPN Insider that Damon Jones could is on the block from cleveland. He's big and can hit the trey for sure. Defensively he's not very good.

Anyone intrested?

I would rather keep Smush. Yes, Damon is a better three point shooter, but Smush is a better ball handler and is more athletic. Plus, I don't want Damon's contract.

D. Jones was a huge disappointment in C-town... we don't need him.

I think you just said something bad. Damon went through a period this season when he shot 18 %

horrible.

Smush did 5 times better than Damon and I would want to keep smush as the starter

We should give smush one more chance!!
 
Don't yall remember robert horry?

The year we were eliminated by the spurs horry had a very bad performance shooting 2/38 from the 3 point in the playoffs.

After we let him go, He became such a contributor in San Antonio.

I think we should give smush one more chance because he played well in the 1st 2 playoff games dont forget that.

he just choked a little bit thats all. He will make up for it.

I still think we need a defensive minded PG. We can only hope that Smush has improved his footwork over the summer and has been working hard in the gym on his defensive skills.

Damon Jones is a good pick up let me explain why. In cleveland he was expected to score alot of points, for him to be good you need at least two players that draw double teams to get him open shots, In cleveland he had lebron. In LA he will have Kobe,Lamar,an improving Kwame brown, and another shooter drawing defenders in Vlad-Rad. :D

lakerfreak 07-05-2006 08:51 PM

but dude the thing is he also missed open shots on Cleveland.

he needs one whole season to redeem himself because I don't trust him anymore
