Doesn't give a role player much opportunity?
Trevor Ariza, Sasha Vujacic, Jordan Farmar, Luke Walton, Lamar Odom all get opportunities.
You went snowboarding and constantly looked loss on the court, there's a reason you got the nickname Space Cadet and it wasn't because of the system.
Have fun in Charlotte. You can go get your stats there and then enjoy watching us in the finals.
This last effort at a buzz kill fell flat on its face, like the Buzz Kill, the waste of money he was. Role players thrive in the triangle. There's no ball hog point guard and it's predicated on sharing the ball. Hence, you never saw any Bull averaging more than 6 assists per game or any of Philip's Lakers teams either. From Rick Fox to Glen Rice to Brian Shaw to Derek Fisher to Luke Walton to our current Bench Mob, I assure you that every one of them would disagree with that spacy comment. The bottom line is that Buzz Kill can shoot a rainbow 3 and that's about it. At 6'10", he can't play the pinch post (Luke can and does), he can't slash, he can't rebound and he can't defend. His passing did improve over time, but that was a function of the triangle offense. He will fail everywhere he goes because he thinks he's a number 2 option, but never will be. If he thought he didn't get enough touches with the Lakers, just wait. The only good fortune he has is that he is going to a Larry Brown coached team that plays possession by possession and his offense also involves sharing the basketball. Once Gerald Wallace is healthy and Larry Brown realizes that Buzz Kill can neither defend nor rebound, he'll be rotting and complaining at the end of the bench.
