he needs to take a paycut, limit his shots, and focus on defense

Pau Gasol is GONE

I'm so [expletive]ing sick of Artest

38% FG on the season..... So terrible

Isn't that only about 5% less than Kobe last year??? :laughing:

Actaully Ron Ron was given the green light as Morris was. I think we need to wait until game 20 or 25 until we start passing judgement. But truth be told I'm not sure who we could get for 8 mil that would focus on defense and would truly make an impact

One is one wide open shots while another is a player that recieves some of the most defensive attention in a highly ineffective offense. That was the difference last season.

Less actually. Last season Kobe shot 43.0 percent, so far this season World Peace is shooting 40.2 percent. However you have to take into account the fact that Kobe was the clearcut #1 option on the team a season ago while right now World Peace is simply a role player. With that said when you look at him this season. He's averaging 13 points and 5 rebounds and 34 percent from the 3 point line. That's essentially what he gave us in 2010 and we all know what the conclusion was of that season.

Metta was shooting 38% at the time he wrote that.

We'll see if it continues and we'll see if it translates into him playing better D. Like you guys said when he was playing poorly at times already this season, it's early.

Artest's career fg% is just about 40%. As long as he's hitting them in around that range, i'm happy. Also, he has picked his game up in the last 3 games and i expect him to keep playing at high level now that D'antoni's system is starting to work in.

Poor comparison.

If Artest made 40% of "bail me out" shots nobody here would be complaining.

pretty much how I feel. His percentages are pretty spot on career wise, could be higher but I'm not expecting a 45% year from him. Like I said I'd be more worried about Pau dropping 10%
