Yes, it is. He's playing the wrong players and the defense is trash

I don't have a problem with the rotations tonight. Meeks would have got more burn if Kobe didn't have to play so long. Jamison playing more than Pau is more than fine with me and I'm sure you would agree with that.

Alright maybe a bit. But no one would be complaining about our coach if our guys had of played with heart because we would have won by 20.

That's why it makes absolutley no sense not to play a guy like Jordan Hill. He arguably plays with the most heart, effort, and intensity than anyone on this team consistently. Yeah, he might not be the best obviously, but that he brings it and actually gives a damn unlike most of our guys? Certainly!

I mean dwight can't be the only person out there trying to defend everyone. Step up the D.

Jordan Hill could help in that area, but of course, that is if he were to actually play at all and I guess that's asking A LOT.

D'antoni basically was saying he wasn't playing Hill because he wanted to give Pau a chance and he doesn't want to lose Jordan.

And then he said that Hill is a victim of the system but he doesn't want to lose him and he's being a trooper through it but the team is athletically struggling.


He basically was saying in so many words that he wants to play Jamison at the 4, and he wants to play Hill at the 4 with Dwight but wants to give Pau a chance to show something.

When he's talking about "Athletically struggling" he's TALKING about Gasol.

His entire press conference he was trying to find a way to say "Pau can't physically play in this system and giving him chances is eating up Jordan Hill's time." Without saying it.

Pau played too long
Ron played too long
Hill should have played more

I can only hope & pray that is truly the case and it's just a matter of time until Jordan gets his more than well-deserved burn again.

Yeah it really is. You know why? Because his man scored 30 points. How often does that happen? Sure he cheats on certain possessions every game but not like tonight

It's BEEN time. WAY overdue. Sit his ass out for those reasons PLUS you've got a great 'back-up' desperately waiting in the wings HUNGRY who actually CARES about his job in Jordan Hill.

I agree Pau played a bit too long but Ron was fine sans that last shot attempt. I actually take that back, the one problem I did have with D'Antoni was putting Ebanks in the game, that was a mistake. But the main thing tonight was just cockiness and laziness
