Please tell me who you believe is capable of that.


Nobody but at least somebody to either frustrate them or slow them down cause MWP is having problems staying in front of anyone right now

Dorrel Wright would be just perfect. Even Brandon Rush. But we couldn't sign either of them.

Do you watch basketball or know what's going on? Dorrel Wright hasn't played good for the last year and Brandon Rush tore his ACL

Kobe would be putting his body through more hell at the SF position than at Shooting Guard.

He didn't tore his ACL in preseason when we could signed him if we had the money. And Wright is capable defender and good shooter,and surely is better then Metta.
I could ask you the same question because of your mancrush on Morris.

I'm talking about a shooter that makes the opponent cringe when he lines up...We're talking Ray Allen type shooter......

Nash IS a Knockdown, Lights Out, Dead-Eye Shooter.....Problem is he doesn't shoot enough.

Kobe is a great Scorer, not a Dead-Eye. Especially when he does his fall-away. His lifetime shooting percentage proves this.....

Nowitzki is a Dead-Eye...Dunleavy Jr. Is a Dead-Eye....And I gotta believe is a serious upgrade over MWP at this stage of his career.

These type of shooters may you pay "ALL DAY LONG"....this softens up the paint......

Add one more Deadeye & We should average 110 in the Triangle..........

If you don't mine me asking, what is your definition of a dead eye shooter?

Because I think most people here would agree, hes a dead eye shooter.

(Kobe that is)

Someone like Novak would be a nice fit. You don't have to play him too many minutes, but if left open he'll make at least 45% of his threes.

Meeks and Jamison should get it going soon too I think. Meeks wasn't getting any PT from the clown of a coach we had, and Jamison just needs to get himself going. Maybe a coaching change will help that.

Damn man, you butchered that meme. Completely obliterated it.

(Kobe that is)

Kobe is one of THE greatest Scorers of All-Time. However a LIFETIME .453 Field Goal Percentage cannot be considered Deadeye......Then again Ray Allen is .453 too...LOL

Now I get that Kobe is .559 this year and that his percentge is WAYYYYY lower because of shot selection. But Kobe will always be Kobe....I love that....he will not be a straight Knockdown Shooter, because of his style. he loves fade-aways and rarely will catch and shoot.....

We need a guy that can catch and shoot, maybe one or two dribbles and drain at a 49-51% clip. When Howard kicks it to him it is "Automatic".....

Same here.

Eventually he'll snap out of it and provide us with double digit scoring off the bench,

He's too much of a savvy vet with a nice repertoire of offensive moves to continue to struggle like this.

What we need is a small Forward who can Lock down Lebron or Kevin Durant....


I heard Pippen is coming.

What stats are you using, and do you know how to use stats?

Is that overall FG% or Shot%?

You should stay away from stats if you don't really know how to use them.

Now I get that Kobe is .559 this year and that his percentge is WAYYYYY lower because of shot selection. But Kobe will always be Kobe....I love that....he will not be a straight Knockdown Shooter, because of his style. he loves fade-sways and rarely will catch and shoot.....


I don't think you are taking other things into consideration.

Kobe has had to create for himself (and others) because he's never had a true playmaker on his team,
so of course his shooting % is going to suffer (especially against zone defense).

We need a guy that can catch and shoot, maybe one or two dribbles and drain at a 49-51% clip. When Howard kicks it to him it is "Automatic".....


You mean like Kobe or Nash? (teasing you)

Who do you suggest, and how do we get him?

Used em right.....apparently you don't

so of course his shooting % is going to suffer (especially against zone defense).

taken into consideration and noted in my comments

You mean like Kobe or Nash? (teasing you)

Who do you suggest, and how do we get him?

I made my suggestion.....NASH & KOBE were already accounted for......this is a Dead-Eye Shooter on top of these guys because NASH doesn't shoot enough, and KOBE needs one to defer to as well...

I hold my ground of what we need....."WE NEED A KNOCKDOWN, LIGHTS OUT, DEAD-EYE SHOOTER

IMHO, we need more slashers and people capable of creating off the dribble.

Well we chose Devin Ebanks over Matt Barnes and CDR.

need someone who can create their own shot other than kobe on the perimeter

Well, we had CDR, but keyword: had.

yo.

@Slammin' Steve

1. I don't like to use stats, but I do know how to use them.

2. You didn't answer my question, but your response tells me its shot%, so there you go Kobe IS a deadeye shooter.

3. "Used em right.....apparently you don't" Did I rub your vagina the wrong way or something? My bad. Its not like you made it a clear indicator those were shot stats and not overall fg% stats, I don't use stats so I don't have them memorized and I can't tell if those are overall fg% stats unless I look them up myself which I didn't that is why I asked you.

4. Where is it noted? I don't see it anywhere, you mentioned shot selection, you didn't mention the zone, and you didn't mention Kobe played his entire career without a true playmaker (like Nash).


5. I asked you who and how do we get him, you didn't answer my question you just made another comment about how I rubbed you the wrong way.

I suggest you use vagisil for that stuff.
