Our 2 key additions this year in Jamison and Meeks who I was actually REALLY excited about are a combined 7ppg and both shooting around 35% from the field... Terrrrribleeeeeee


Im really hoping they pick it up already.

Meeks is streaky, but I'm hoping Jamison can start to get it going real soon.

Meeks and Jamison have utterly disappointed me so far.

They thrive in a systamatic offense that is obliged to them. We are not running any plays specifically for them, so in return they are not putting up the expected statistical production. They are just jacking up threes instead of cutting, driving, coming off screens, but at the same time that's all they can really do with the bad spacing and consistent bad decision making leading to turnovers, no proper transition plays etc etc.

Their jumper will start falling, but they still won't play up to par unfortunately.

I had a good feeling about Meeks but he has disappointed a lot but I knew Jamison was going to be a scrub hopefully he just balls out in the playoffs

Jamison is actually a decent player it just seems like he is deferring way the hell to much. He could easily get 7-11 a night if he would play his game and quit jacking up 3's that is not his forte.

I think they'll be fine .. Maybe they wont reach our expectations we had in the offseason but they'll play better than now.

I am not worried about Meeks.

Jamison in my opinion looks completely lost and doesn't know what the hell to do. There is still plenty of time for him to catch up. He'll be fine.

i think there's no problem about Jamison as long as he can defend. i don't care if he doesn't score. just dominate the boards and erase all inside shots. so far jamison are having a great defense.

I think Meeks will be good under D'Antoni
