dont think so, a game or two doesnt really impress the league,,,and i dont expect anything more than production off of hustle, from clark. and i sure hope hes not just gunna be traded, DID YOU SEE THE D HE PLAYED ON GINOBLI, he's our best chance at slowing Durant down, and lebron, and carmelo, thats for damn sure. the D he played on Ginobli was world class; Metta WORLD's old class of D. ;)

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

^ GM's right.

He had a good game, but he's got to bring it consistently before he's actually worth anything. I liked what I saw though, if he can keep bringing that he belongs on this team.

Increase his minutes gradually, counting on him after one big game is not going to help clark nor lakers ..


he has to prove it through consistency with reasonable minutes , but not from scoring 2 points while playing zero minutes to a back up position ..

Good game by Clark!!! Not that surprised by his performance but still impressed. I knew that from what I saw of him at Orlando that he had some talent. He has the length and athleticism along with decent speed,defensive abilities,hustle and effort to be useful. I felt he just needed some decent playing time rather than garbage time to
showcase his game. Now he has been given the opportunity he is making the most of it. Reminds me of Jordan Hill last year vs OKC. What I mostly like about him is that while his shot may not be on like it was today his value will come from his D and effort and hustle. Just like Hill he has the intangibles that our team so badly needs. While I don't want to overate him as he still has a way to go, I think given more minutes he could do ok. If he can show some consistency with his shot it will really help him become a rotation guy. I really hope he can play well as I would rather him see time than others on our team because at least he gives his all!!!

Asked if he was surprised by Earl Clark, D'Antoni said: "Or I'm an idiot for not playing him."

Kobe on Earl-sanity: "He was phenomenal tonight. He sits right next to me on plane rides, so I talk to him and ...
he always tells me that he is ready to play -- and he definitely was tonight. He played phenomenal against a heck of a team with some great forwards. So I was very impressed."

Couldn't watch the game, so I don't know how he played. Looking at the box score, I know he was great


Now I wish he would capitalize on opportunities, such as this game, but with more consistency. Lakers need an extra trade asset at this point, not an extra baggage

he played like our only defensive stopper for big guards/SFs. he shut manu down on a few possessions.

Clark can play. Wouldn't mind seeing him on the court more, even when we get our front-court back. Guys like Clark and Hill play with heart, they hustle. Unlike some of our other guys--I won't name names (starts with G, ends with asol). That's what we need.

He has somewhat of a respectable perimeter game, which makes him very useful and he's been teammates with Nash before, so he should be accustomed to playing with him if he continues to get big minutes (he should).

Has the potential to give us what Antawn Jamison was supposed to before he decided to go on vacation for the rest of the season.

Forget coming off the bench.....This guy should be our starting 4 right now....Just think of what the result would have been tonight if we had Howard finishing at the rim instead of Sacre....I love Sacre, but he just isn't a great finisher on the offensive end.....I really love what I saw from Clark tonight, and was very impressed with his skill set....He can shoot from outside, has a real soft touch, can drive to the paint and finish, and can cover a heck of a lot more ground on the defensive end than Gasol right now..........Like I posted before, bring Gasol off the bench and put him at the 5....We will continue to give up a ton of points if we try and gaurd the new, young athletic teams in the league with basically two centers in the game at the same time.....
