IM am not saying the current demarcus cousin... if he would dedicate himself to the gym and defence i believe he could be a defensive force on lebron

He's a 6'11" 270-pound center who has absolutely no lateral quickness. He's not going to lose 50 pounds and turn into Kevin Garnett.

Durant and Lebron had their season high in points against LA. That means something.

Exactly!!! We're not looking for them to be stopped. But MWP isn't even slowing them down let alone containing them. When your job is defensive specialist you should at least be able to watch film long enough to slow some of these guys down. We may as well let Earl Clark and Devin Ebanks try. At least they're tall and athletic. Maybe they could bother their shots a little more

Durant and LeBron are argurably the two best players in the world. There's no limiting them.


There is no limiting them and then there is giving up their season high. Letting them get their average is one thing, he isn't a good defender, been saying this since last season. People who think he can defend are the same people who want to sign AI, stuck in a time warp or not paying attention.

When Mitch gets out check book = he overpays for low on court production usually. What team wants MWP at his salary right now? List gotta be short if there is on at all.

He has the definition of no trade value. Overpaid, bad, not expiring. If Mitch finds a taker it is a miracle.

If there is how come no one else is able to?

A good defensive player can limit them under or at their season average. Metta cannot

The team, as a whole, sucks.
The Lakers FO knows more than you. Sorry.

Wait, what?
Earl Clark tried a few times yesterday and it was like a hot knife through butter...
Ebanks would have been even worse... they're simply not strong enough!

Ebanks is a smarter defender = he has to be used when every1 else gets lit up! He is the best young defender on the team vs the Stars & Superstars in league
