Well let's see what I predicted.

When Meeks made his debut in the opener, people clamored for Ebanks, Mike Brown benched him and Meeks became the savior and Brown was an idiot for not playing him and then as I predicted when he hit a slump after getting playing time he'd go back to being considered a scrub again.


Gotta love the predictability of some fans ^_^

Same here, with the kind of players we have I thought he's gonna knock those 3s at ease. Oh well, hopefully gets better with the implementation of D'Antoni's system.

Not necessarily in all cases. It truly just depends what the player's style is like. For a perimeter shooter all it takes is some open looks and confidence. While I am not an expert on D'Antoni's offense, from what I hear is that it is the ultimate confidence booster.

Had an absolutely horrible game today, but not ready to throw in the towel yet on Meeks. Still got faith he'll come through :pray:

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Steve Blake has underperformed for 2 years. I think I can give Meeks till the deadline to make a honest opinion on him. He hasn't really impressed me yet, but he deserves a decent chance to prove he isn't another Blake lol. Same goes with Jamison. Has shown glimpses of what hes capable of but still has been sub par so far. I'll give them a chance under DAntoni first but things better improve.

Not saying this will happen to Meeks, but there's been a strange thing over the years where a lot of the knockdown 3 point guys we bring in lose their touch when they get to LA. I always thought it was because we were unable to get them as open, but :hmm:

Meeks is a turnover machine.

Needs to work on his decision making skills passing the ball.

This happens because we dont play our spot up 3 pt shooters significant mins alongside the starters and when you only have 1 threat on the court at a time its easier for the defense to take him away. thats why we need multiple guys on the court that are reliable shooters. Once FO understands this then we could finally incorporate them into the offense. but for now its gonna be tons of wideopen shots for SFs and we just have to pray they make a good enough portion of them .

This is his 3rd game in the rotation I expect him to get better as he gets comfortable with the permanent back up 2 position

Rather see Ebanks Start in place of MWP & let Meeks come in at 3 min mark for Kobe in 1st & 3rd quarters.

You also said Brown was a good coach and wasn't going to be fired.

Nice prediction :facepalm:

Meeks is ok. He just doesn't know his role in this team yet. A lot of mismatch. D'Antoni will use his talents, no problem.
