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.


haha..

Awesome to see him play well, might be a diamond in the rough ala Jordan Hill.

Looks like he can D up which is important. Lets hope for consistency, before saying he should start.

Good call. I would love it if he were a diamond in the rough, but I think expectations are too high for him.

I can't believe it took MDA this long to figure out that Earl Clark can play. EVERYONE KNEW HE COULD PLAY!!

He knows how to shoot the jumper, can finish at the basket, rebound, and defend. He can guard 3s and 4s.

If Earl was playing earlier in the season, I really don't think we would be in this position. Especially if Jamison was off the floor.

This is a perfect example of how stupid D'Antoni is.

One game and he's god. Gotta love fans.

Lets wait for a string of good games for Clark before labeling this guy a valuable asset. I like what he brings to the table but there's also a reason why he's played minimal minutes in Orlando and Phoenix despite being a lottery pick.

I hope he turns out to be a energy guy off the bench like Hill but its one really good game.

I've been waiting to see him play all damn season. After seeing his 40 pt game when he played for Orlando, I was waiting for him to get some playing time from Pringles. Hopefully he keeps that good energy off the bench when the bigs come back. Clark and Hill would be a nice rebounding duo..

He played minimal minutes because there was no space for him and no one developed him properly.

In Orlando, he had to compete with Bass, Turkoglu, Lewis, and Ryan Anderson.
In Phoenix, it was Hill, Amare, Dudley, Frye, and Amundson,

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

LMAO ! I dunno what's going on your mind guys but you guys always thinks that one game of the lakers is like an entire season of the Lakers

Overpraising someone in just one game LMAO

Darius Morris keep on playing good, everyone praise him and when Darius Morris getting murdered everyone ditching him


there is a big Question about Earl Clark

Is he CONSISTENT? or just like a Lakers Winning Streak

Still, if he's good enough, he breaks the rotation.

I'm hoping for the best out of him. I'm not saying he won't be solid, I'm saying lets wait a few games of consistency before we jump to conclusions on him.

He played the expected number of minutes and games.

All the players I mentioned are above average NBA players and no NBA coach is going to play someone with potential unless they absolutely have to.

In the Lakers case, Jamison's career is over. He was brought here because he knew Mike Brown's system...which smells like Jim Buss's signing. I can't fathom Mitch making that bad of a signing.

He may be a suprise we needed. A thing to notice mainly is that mid range jumper. We use to have gasol for that but he can't hit one if his life depended on it now. Also being that ebanks was our back up 3 for so long acually have a decent back up 3 who can score is big for us. I have a feeling the guy will keep this up. Maybe not 20+ point a game but like 10 point or so.

earl clark is a hustle player,my friends. this is the first game in his career where hes consistently made a jumper(like more than 50%). hes not a scorer, asking 10ppg from him is too much, you dont ask that from a hustle player whos main skillset in intangibles. this game is a fluke ,in that, he's not an offensive player, BUT he can still be GREAT for this team - for the reasons i described on the first post in this thread(made before this game) . not included in that OP was his amazing perimeter Defense, wow did he shut Manu down a few times,wow.

HES AN OFFENSIVE REBOUNDER/WEAK-SIDE SHOT BLOCKER/GOOD DEFENDER/GOOD OVERALL REBOUNDER/GOOD CUTTER ON O, and hes not GOOD at anything else, anything else is a plus. BUT, imagine a lineup with him at the 3 and Hill at the 4, how many offensive rebounds would that lineup pull in - VALUABLE/PLAY HIM

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

No one was talking about this guy 24 hours ago

its not like jordan hill where everyone knew he was beast, and coach brown kept him on the bench


when clark had been in this season, he gave nothing...

At the beginning of the season some of us thought he had potential
When dantonie was hired, we thought he MIGHT get a chance, but he did not...

Anyways, we should expect to see more of Clark in the short term...

People keep saying he is the backup 3...

He is a PF perfect for dantonie...

Clark/Hill as the 4/5 combo would be a great dantonie lineup

told all you once he got here & have been saying it all season = Coach D must play the talent & few athletes we have on roster. Clark (baby LO without the handles) you dont need to run plays for; he is active & makes an impact when given mins. Same goes for Hill & Ebanks. Many of you hate Ebanks but he has to get meaningful mins alongside Kobe, D12, & Nash to get full value out of him. I will believe Coach D once I see the athletes play more time. Clarks only problem is he doesnt understand transition defensewhen guards attack from inbounds, he doesnt turn around & help d. he gives up layups by not helping. But production is production = play his a$$
