Disagree it's been MWP


MWP played pretty solid defense and shot the ball well in the first round of the playoffs last year. Pau was too busy shooting jumpers and letting Carl Landry embarrass him.

It's not the system though, it's the personnel. If we had the right personnel, all those open shots, more of them would go in certainly and that'd basically be the difference. You gotta' make shots period. Our roster just isn't that good.


It's a mixture of both. However, we can't simply trade half our roster to fit the new system, thus we need to tweak it to actually achieve some success. The way the offense is set up, we're not going to see much happening unless Kobe's gunning for 35+ on any particular night. We're not playing well, but our roster isn't as terrible as people think. We're still a solid team, just not a championship caliber one at the moment.

i agree our bench is better than its been before its just the bench isnt producing Kapono should have a better % in 3Pts Mettta declined drastically Mc Rob and Murphy are the only consistent contributers, as for the rookies they can only get better i wount mind if morris came of the bench but we do need a starting PG other than fish or Blake

It's time to turn the ship around NOW.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Kapono needs to sit his ass outside and just stay there and wait for the ball, Murphy needs to stop being so hesitant and trying to please Kobe. Metta just needs to keep going inside, he's effective when he does.

I hope everyone picking against the Lakers in games and stuff like this so often doesn't jump on on a bandwagon like they always had faith in the team if we do well this year.

No. Beating the Clippers isn't very impressive. The freaking Wolves beat them I don't see anybody calling them contenders.

Well I guess you can say the Wolves didn't have their best scorer either. Beasley was out.

Nah. We win 3-4 in a row and everything will be fine. Then when we lose another 2-3, we need to blow up the team.

Hate to say it, but I think Chris Paul's slightly better than Michael Beasley. Maybe.

Never said Beasley was better, but he is a good scorer and one of their top players. Spurs beat the paper clips at the beginning of the season should they be seen as contenders? Of course not beating the Clippers doesn't mean [expletive].

Beasley's impact is not even close to CP3. If the Clippers had Paul in that game, I can almost guarantee that they win it, he's that good. If anything, Beasley's play is a detriment to his team with his volume shooting and ball-stopping. He's a terrible fit in their new system this season.

Beating the Clippers doesn't mean [expletive]? Great, then teams that lose to them should feel like [expletive]. Oh wait, that would be us, right? :rolleyes:

It's not that losing to the Cips doesn't mean [expletive] it's losing in Jan doesn't mean [expletive] unless your worrying about seeding, [expletive] the Heat went on like a 5 or 6 game losing streak last year and nobody believed in them outside of Miami and them [expletive]es went to the finals so lets just hope we win and the guy turn it around or a trade happens.

The Clippers are a legitimate team in the NBA right now. I just want to see this team string together some quality wins. We haven't done that consistently since '08-09 season. '09-10 we survived due to Kobe's ridiculous gamewinners and last year we were just awful aside from that 17-1 spurt. I just want to see a good win against a good team. Hopefully it happens tomorrow.

Show me where I said Beasley's impact is close to CP3.
