This guy can't shoot, can't dribble, can't make decisions... I don't really care what kind of defense he plays, he's killing us time after time.

I'd rather watch Jamison struggle to guard 3s than watch this guy play stupid game after game.

Amnesty, please now.

His last second in bounds pass to Gasol when Kobe was SINGLE covered up top was the cherry on top of his horrible game for me.

We had no business being in the game against S.A. down our top 2 PGs and in transition from one coach to another but this guy just killed us all game long and I PRAY D'Antoni sits his ass down when he gets here - whatever defense he plays is not worth how much he involves himself offensively and makes things worse.

I mean, he takes stupid shots but some things to consider:

A. You can't amnesty him during the season.

B. No one will trade for him.

C. We have no idea what he looks like with Nash getting the ball to him in rhythm and running the D'Antoni system.

It's frustrating we lost, Pau and him shot 30% and 28% tonight but I'm actually curious to see how he does in a new system.....one where he will not get to handle the ball.

It's going to be really hard to get rid of Metta. I think he's had negative value for awhile now. That's why you never hear about a return on him whenever it's said he's in trade rumors.

Ron had five more shot attempts than Dwight tonight. How the hell is that allowed to happen?

I have been saying forever that he needs to go...Needed to be amnestied last summer. Kind of feels like a Trojan Horse from the other teams, at times. Can't see us winning a championship with him - We need someone at that three spot who can hit the three somewhat well, and who doesn't make a ton of mistakes.

Happy Birthday, welcome to the bench. D'Antoni won't play bad shooters or guys who try to make decisions with the ball who are incapable.

I really hope D'antoni has him come off the bench and only play 15ish minutes a game

He used to be one of my favorite players but I'm so done with him

that won't work in D'antoni's offense

Hmm, that's actually better than I thought & expected, but nonetheless, still not good enough, especially the overall field-goal percentage.
