He should start next game vs OKC but I think he will get torched by KD pretty easily.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

If Clark maintains even half of his production against Spurs, he could sub both 3 and 4. Kobe and Ron can have their original positions locked for rest of the season. It's a nice surprise actually. I wish D'Antoni had the smarts to see this before.

Even when Earl Clark did play he was never really bad but it was in garbage time

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


i made this thread before last nights game. i liked the way he rebounded/cut on O in the first game, thought our 2nd unit's boo boo offense could use the 2nd chances. all last nights game did was cement the fact that his rebounding and now DEFENSE would really help the 2nd unit, anything he gives on offense will be a very inconsistent plus.
and i think we need him at the 3 because, 1. we dont have a backup SF 2. we have too many PFs 3. we need Pau/Dwight at center to tun the offense through.

That's the type of player the Lakers need. Aggressive and doesn't sit around and watch Kobe play. Cut to the basket and get yours type of player. It's to bad MIke didn't see what he had, just like he did with Hill in New York...

No no, slow your horses there, not everyone, just a very select few and I remember you being a part of them. Credit to you. Outside of you and a very few others here, if anything, Hill was always getting clowned on. I remember well.

But there were people who looked at the past games hill had, saw he had talent that translated to the box scores, and knew Murphy and McRoberts were not better then him... The majority of Laker and Baketball fans knew Hill could ball


There was NO INDICATION in 3 plus seasons that Earl Clark could have a monster game like this... when he came out of college, he was supposed to be a Lamar Odom type, and he did nothing for 3 years... was condisidered dead weight and jetisonned from the Suns, and was on his way out of the NBA until he went with Howard to the lakers, where he was still on his way out of the League, until this past game... now, he has a chance..

With Hill, there was a build up, from the time he was aquired, when he rode the bench for a month, up to the breakout game when Mike Brown just decided to try him out...

Earl Clark is a total breakout, from out of nowhere player... Like Ariza... a total unknown. Even Shannon Brown was famous for his hops before he became a laker...

Take away the jump shots he hit, and nothing in this game seems like it would be out of the ordinary for him to do on a nightly basis...

That pull up sot he took to avoid the charge was really smart. Allot of his game is simple and effective.

Good Basketball IQ

2 Transition 1 with pull up jumper and 1 with lay up

sounds good to me unlike Darius hit trying to be an acrobatic player like Derrick Rose in transition :laughing:

Earl Clark is a simple sign of how effort can be better than talent. This team needs some youth to bring in energy, especially off the bench. Imagine more guys like Hill and Clark stepping up if we trade Pau for a deep bench.

I feel really good for him and hope he gets more playing time. If he plays with that effort then he definitely will too.
