Sorry Andrew Goudelock fans, but it looks like Mike Brown is not going to play him anytime soon...

ESPN

Mike Brown on why Andrew Goudelock is not getting minutes:

"For a young guy he was doing a terrific job for where he was, or what we asked of him. But having said that, he did not create a ton of shots for himself nor for his teammates. It wasn't like he was getting 14 or 15 points or double figure points off the bench, and so I don't think it's as big a deal or as big a difference when you're looking at production, point-wise, that he was giving us on a night in night out basis."

If only Goudelock could play more like Steve Blake and just average about 4 points but try to create a "TON of shots for himself or his teammates"...

What shots does he create? He throws it in the post or to Kobe then runs in the corner.

Yeah Blake isn't to much better at creating. At least Goude can give us a 'spark' off the bench unlike anyone else we have besides Barnes.

Looks like we have a Luke/Sasha thing again...Steve probably busts Goudelock's azz in practice and Mike thinks he should be the better player and gives him minutes but for whatever reason it doesn't translate to the games (Stage fright?)

Heres what happened earlier in the year

It's not quite the Jeremy Lin story, but there was some luck for 'Lock.

Goudelock had a sinking feeling in training camp, the type that usually ends with a general manager calling a player into his office and saying, "You've done everything we've asked, but…."

Indeed, Goudelock thought he would be cut by the Lakers in December.

"It was to the point where I was calling my agent and said, 'Man, look, these guys aren't really liking me. My opportunities might have to come somewhere else because I don't get any reps in practice. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be here long,' " Goudelock said.

It's not unusual these days if the rookie leads the Lakers' point guards in scoring. He had 10 points in 14 minutes Tuesday against Atlanta.

"The reality of it is I was close to cutting him at one point earlier in the year," Brown said recently. "Who would have thunk that he would have been my backup point guard and played well for us when he got thrown into the fire?"

A second-round draft pick last year from the College of Charleston, Goudelock has made an impression with his strong three-point accuracy (43.2%) and driving teardrop shots that fall almost perfectly over taller defenders' hands.

He's just happy to have a job.

"Almost being cut, I was at the lowest point I've ever been," Goudelock said. "I was calling my parents because I didn't know what else to do. I said, 'I'm sorry. I came out here and did everything I can, but it's just not going to work.' God works in mysterious ways. I don't know how it happened."

which Goudelock couldn't replicate. This discussion has happened many times before, Blake is better at creating shots for his teammates. You can simplify what Blake does all you want but it will always come back to that Goudelock couldn't replicate it. Simple as that.

I'm not shocked.

let's not forget that Goudelock was playing like absolute crap before the 2nd Clippers game and this forum pretty much felt it was going to be Morris overtaking him. Goudelock got his potentially final chance against the Clippers and played his heart out, similar to the way Lin did with his job on the line and that is great for him :)

Why should he play Goudlock? Kobes only playing 40 min per game his body can handle it.

It's like what Artest said, he's too much of a stats guy to see the big picture and who's better on the floor.

Almost being cut? Since when does Mike Brown make decisions about this team? He has very little say on the players on this team.

Blake has been hitting his shots the last couple games, so couple that with his spectacular post entry passes and Mike Brown has got his man!

No he cant technically but he can go to Jim or Mitch and say I don't want him on the team.

Oh really? You think management would listen to him? :laughing:

He wanted to cut EBanks and G-Lock... did it happen this summer? He wanted the Lakers to get Anderson Varejão for Lamar Odom and wanted the Lakers to keep Green instead of Kapano. Brown has very little to no say in player transactions. The decisions are made by Mitch, Jim, and Jerry.
