.. I don't know the exact reason why either.

He should give some minutes to Mckie if anybody on the bench, because he is a verteran and a veteran presence is always good during the playoffs. IMO he would be great for leadership and some support, also he needs to get some minutes because he still has something in him.

We saw a spurt of that "something" toward the end of the season. His defense is a plus, but his offense hasn't been too good.

But we'll see how things go with him....

Smush is not the only reason the Lakers lost this game, but he is a good example of why the Lakers are not over achieving.





I think mckie would have a difficult time keeping up with the up and down offense of the suns. He is a nice veteran presence, maybe against a team like the spurs, but the suns are way too athletic and quick for him. I dont think he would match up well enough against the suns. Only for a few minutes at a time. We cant blame smush for everything but in his limited play, he did hurt them more than help. That 3 to end the 3rd by barbosa...smush was so far from him, barbosa even said he was caught offf guard becasue he had so much space. I agree with you that we need to send him a msg that he isnt allowed into the paint by fouling him hard a few times. He isnt afraid to get in the paint because he barely gets touched. Plus, who else thinks they shouldve pounded the rock into lamar more? He was playing very effectivly but for some reason he stopped getting the ball. I think kobe felt like he had to carry the team but some of his shots were ill advised, long threes especially. I think lamar is our only true advantage against the suns, no one can really handle him in the post, and we need to stop relying on the 3 ball and kobe to take over.
