0-8 preseason but its good to have a discussion where things look good for our team. So post any positives you can think of. I'll start

- Ebanks 14/7 tonight
- Glock 9 points in 4 minutes
- Jordan Hill and Howard look healthy

Go

Ebanks went 14-7 but I think played overall terrible.

Delonte West re-signed with the Mavs with a 1 year deal so he basically controls where he gets traded to. Mavs and his agent are trying to work out a destination for him right now, guess who Delonte's agent is? Dan Fegan...Dwight's agent.

I'm cautiously optimistic. We don't look good right now, but we'll work the wrinkles out. The thing I'm mostly worried about is in a big playoff game if we revert back to this team we've been seeing this preseason and in that situation I'd much rather have Phil on the bench than Mike Brown.

I don't mind Delonte in a trade if we can get rid of Duhon and Blake.

Never mind. Just read Dallas isnt looking to trade him. Hope the Mavs just buy him out or whatever

9 of the first 11 game are at home. I have a good feeling we'll get it together and look way more crisp by the end of November

I am optimistic that Mike Brown will be sacked eventually. Crossing my fingers.

Damn are you Mike Brown's little pet or something?

Always the first one to make an excuse for him...

No, I'm just very aware how overly critical of the guy people are here. Especially in pre-season when it's been stated he's playing certain players in positions to save their legs for the season, which is why we don't see Gasol in the block much and more so on the perimeter.

But those that refuse to do research and act like they know everything have no idea about it and speak as if they are in camp themselves :glasses:

I'm not that crazy about Ebanks' performance tonight. 6-12, yeah 50%, but I realistically doubt he will get that many attempts come regular season often. He might've been chucking a bit for now taking advantage of preseason time.

If we get Delonte, I think he and Metta would get along just fine. I can easily see quite a lot of similarities.

Not happening, but oh how I wish.

I hope he's not sacked because that would most likely mean the Lakers are performing badly. I still don't think he's a good head coach, though.
