The big problen I have is that Ebanks isn't getting any minutes at all, this guy needs to be developed, if he takes some minutes from Barnes and Metta it won't even matter, but Ebanks is the only one who can get better.
Great points DKLaker...how could anybody disagree...

Mike Brown is an idiot....he used eBanks for couple of games & then out of rotation....MWP is getting more than 30mins..when he is doing nothing

Goudelock was giving him nice production....out of rotation...reason? dont know why...

Sessions is getting only 30 mins...why? when pau/bynum/kobe gets around 40mins?
run sessions for 40-42 mins...its ok ...he is only 25 and he was a reserve on the cavs playing around 20mins

Here's a novel idea, why didn't Brown see if Ebanks would have any effect guarding Westbrook? When Kobe was healthy with fresher legs his length and athleticism gave Westbrook trouble....it would've been good to find out before the playoffs.......bottom line is that Ebanks and Goudelock need to play, Kobe and Pau need to rest much more.


I agree one hundred thousand percent. That's the cool thing about this forum. People from this forum go to Lakers home games holding up sign and banners based on stuff posted here and the coaches and players get to see it. Its like a grassroots campaign to get Goudelock and Ebanks some damn playing time.

Obviously Ebanks knows how to play basketball
A guy sits for months and then because of Kobe's injury he gets big minutes........but wait he wasn't good enough to play for months?????
Very very strange coaching....or lack of it. MB =

Who's leg has to break to get GLock off the bench like he should be?

I'm glad you brought this up. Brown isn't playing the young kids enough, even though they're our only possible means of saving the old guys' legs through an intense, lockout-shortened season. Instead of playing the non-sucky players on his bench, he actually SHORTENS his rotation while throwing the young guys into purgatory. Glock, Ebanks, Morris, Your Mom--you're telling me they can't match Metta's 29% from 3 (yeah, he's had two good games in a row. Whoopty damn do), or Blake's 5/3 on 37% shooting?

This obviously isn't the Mike Brown thread, so I'm sorry for the non-sequitur, but I remember two things Brown defenders were parroting at the start of the season: 1) he would upgrade our defense; and 2) he would play the young guys more than Phil did. The exact opposite has happened on both fronts.

LA's fg% defense is solid, but they're far WORSE this year on D than they were in Phil's last year. They're easily the worst team in the entire league at forcing turnovers--Phoenix had a total of THREE the entire game tonight, which is a franchise record low, and this was a fast-paced game with a lot of possessions, i.e. chances to create turnovers. This is partly a personnel issue, since Sessions and Barnes are the only athletic perimeter guys we have, but Brown's done nothing to stop the bleeding. He never changes his defense up, he never zones, he never traps. Forcing a low fg% doesn't mean as much when you allow a ton of possessions and offensive rebounds.

Second, and this is more on point, Brown's rotations have been truly awful: he's failed to play or develop any of our prospects, and most damning is the lack of logic he's exhibited. Without Kobe tonight, the team had literally zero perimeter creators when Sessions sat out. What did Brown do? He played Sessions LESS than he usually does. Oh, and Blake played 18 minutes, with zero points, one assist, one rebound, abominable defense, and three turnovers. Hell, I could have done that, and I would've waived the annual $5 million fee. And with Shannon and Redd singeing the nets the way they were, why would you put in one of the worst, most apathetic defenders in the league to match up with them?

Maybe I'm not qualified to break down the minutiae of Brown's X's and O's. Feel free to dismiss what I've said up to this point. But tossing all of the technical discourse out, it's really obvious that Brown's a poor leader, even to a layperson. He rolls his eyes and puts his hands on his hips when his team screws up multiple times in a row. DK's repeatedly bashed brown for his inability to garner the respect of his players, and it shows, and it's killing this team. It won't necessarily manifest itself through a lack of effort, a la Bynum's March of IDGaF, but Brown really needs to hold his ground and not let the old guys push him around. When Metta was whining about minutes, what did Brown do? He put him BACK into the starting lineup, instead of benching his ineffective ass and daring him to opt out at the end of the season (I would have forgiven Brown for almost everything if he had freed us from Metta's cap hold). Fish was one of the worst starters in the league, and Brown never sat him because he was afraid of losing the team. Blake's had his head up his slim shady butt for the last month, and his coach (you know, the dude who gets paid to keep players focused) KEEPS putting him in and yanking him out after five minutes of ineffectiveness.

tl;dr Mike Brown is a bad coach, a worse leader, and a snappy dresser. And he hasn't given the young guys enough burn. And Jim Buss is an idiot. 4 years, $18 million.

Good God.

It was his left hand...If it was kobe in that situation he would still be playing. These young cats are not worth a pot to piss in Got that saying from the old school side of the house...




I'm sure Mike Brown would start Sessions and Blake and move Kobe to the 3. I hope Glock gets some minutes on thursday....

This is why you have to get more players involved....sh!t happens and you end up with guys who have been rusting away on the bench playing key minutes.......a good coach has them ready before now.
The way Sessions and Blake have been playing defense is
If only we had Gerald Green right now
