Default MWP to come in with the second unit as the 2.

http://www.latimes.com/sports/lakers...,4252595.story

What do you guys think this brings to the table? Or takes away?
It should help bolster the second unit but I still don't know if it'll work.

I remember the Laker contingent on here were hyping of the signing of Jodie Friggin Meeks. He can't even get clock on a horrid bench.

Mike Brown logic:
Use your starting SF, who's currently averaging 35 MPG, as your backup SG.
So when is Metta going to rest? When Mike brings in Ebanks, who is the3rd string SF after Metta and Jamison/3rd string SG after Kobe and Metta. All the while, Jodie Meeks ain't playing, while he's a great shooter and could be a nice scorer off the bench.
I like Metta, but playing him and Jamison and Jordan Hill at the same time should not sound like a great idea to anybody.

Artest shoots under 40%...from the field. Does that spell "shooting guard" to you?

Artest turns the ball over nearly anytime he tries to do anything sensible with it. Does that spell "shooting guard" to you?

Artest too slow to guard some of the quicker small forwards. Does that spell "shooting guard" to you?

Stay off the LSD lad.

thats the idea...he shoots 40% from the field. get him better looks than 4th option spot up shooting. read the article...brown talks about playing jamison at the 3. u gonna see a heavy does of mwp on the block causing hell for another team's sg. he's a good passer & playmaker

Naw. He doesn't really turn the ball over anytime he's making an offensive move. You're spitting nonsense there. He's effective cuz of his strength...hard for a defender to get the ball iwithout fouling him.

brown is seeing the bigger picture...getting his rotations in order...putting a better 5 out on the court for the whole game. good for him learning from what didnt work last year... he ran pau or bynum out there with barnes mcbob blake & murph. it didn't work. mwp can do more offensively than any of those players...its what theyve been missing since odom left.

This will add some defense to the bench. MWP can still be on the floor late in games with the starting unit if needed. Ebanks adds some transitional speed the starting offense needs. Not a bad move at all.

Guy is remarkable.


MWP is a PF at this point, well suited to playing next to Howard, as Peace is a subpar rebounder even for a SF (and really always has been).


Meanwhile, Jodie Meeks can't get 10MPG.

Look at what playing with lineups did for Miami. They must have had the most changes in lineups in the history of the NBA, and won a championship.

There were four constants in the starting lineup for the Heat last year: LeBron, Wade, Bosh and Mario Chalmers. The 5th guy was originally Joel Anthony, then Udonis Haslem before Spo finally settled on Shane Battier. Still 4 of the 5 starters were the same all year (assuming healthiness of course).

Didn't read the article but Jamison at 3? This means they're sticking with that god-awful offense.

Honestly, just put Kobe and Howard on one side and let them work.... even Kobe will find the less urge to shoot with a wide open Howard. Even if he did, Howard can clean up the rebound.
