If Meeks is on, and def hitting behind the arc, no question he can go off for 10-20, that is what shooters do. Don't even get me started on Jamison he can get his too.

meeks is backing up Kobe who will actually get some rest, I think Meeks is gonna get a little more than 15 min of playing time as I don't expect Kobe to be playing 33 minutes a game this season. Especially if we have a lead Kobe will get more rest we also have Jamison who we can switch around between 3 and 4 which means Kobe won't need to very often. Having Meeks means basically Kobe gets more rest this season than he has in the last 2. Meeks is streaky but when he's on he's very capable of putting up 10-20 points. I wanted Barbosa over him but I don't ignore how much of a scorer he can be on a given night when he's on.

U said if he's on he can avg 10-20, he can't be on all season. He is gonna avg 7-9 Ppg.

Like I said the min and maximum they are gonna give us. For meeks I think at minimum he can get us 10 off the bench at max he can get us 20 off the bench on a given night. His season average will probably be closer to 9.8 ppg or 10.1 ppg but like I said, I expect him to go off for 20 on a few nights, more often than not, if we're running a lineup with Nash out there while Kobe is resting and he finds Meeks open...well..



With a point guard like Nash finding him, Meeks % is gonna be higher this year than it has been, not to mention he'll probably get many more open looks than he did in Philly, and he has started a majority of his NBA career, so coming off the bench gives us a nice weapon capable of going off for 20 when he's on and knocking down consistent threes.

There's other elements of his game I want to see him work on but with Nash out there I don't worry about what looks he won't get because he'll get a lot of open opportunities.

It will be nice to have that off the bench especially while Kobe rests.

Edit: Eric Snow becomes Rafiki from the Lion King at :23 seconds.

Man it's weird logging in here at work and not checking to see the updates/rumours and personal attacks on each other in the Bynum vs D12 war. Like so many of us have already said, it seems so unreal I have to double check to see if it actually happened!

So very pumped for the up-coming season!!
