He's had some struggles the past few games but I wouldn't say he's dropped off. He has put up some pretty damn good stats.

If he hit the wall, then I want to know what Metta hit because there's no reason why he should be on the floor at the end of games over Clark

Metta was holding Gay 2-13 in the second half and Clark had no energy and was turning it over. Thats why Metta was in the game over Clark this game. Him and Clark are usually in at the same time. Clark is our 3 and Metta is our 4. But when Clark is off D'antoni moves Kobe to the 3, Metta to the 4 and Meeks to the 2.

I disagree. He clearly deserves a Luke Walton type deal.

not at all. 5-6 million a season under the new CBA? hell no. walton got his deal under the old CBA when our payroll was smaller and the penalties were less severe. 

 

3-4 million at most. otherwise entice antawn to come back cheap again and have hill start or jamison start

He's a great role player. I still don't think it was right to bench Pau for Clark. If anything, i think Clark should play the three. Anything to get Metta out of the lineup.

Without a doubt.

And yes, Clark has hit the wall.

I think some of it has to do with the defensive adjustments. Teams would help off Clark on Kobe and Dwight, but now that they know they need to stay on him more, it leaves Kobe and Dwight with more single coverage. I think Clark will be fine. I'm not looking for scoring from him. As long as he's slashing, rebounding, and playing tough defense I'm happy.

Yeah he looked solid today. Struggled early and had some turnovers but seemed to be coming out of it later on.

And made two great plays to close the 3rd that severely hurt Chicago's momentum.

I don't think he's hit a wall in the strict sense of the word.  He's slumping but that's not a "wall".  He's still getting up and down the floor, playing with energy and giving max effort.  That's what put him in the rotation.  His shooting and offense is a bonus...

 

He'll be fine.  Until he starts to look winded early and often, I would NOT say he's hit the wall.

Strange performance by Earl. Plays amazing mid year, and then nothing. I'd keep him for cheap I guess?? I really just don't know / glad I'm not Mitch!

I would invite him to training camp..... and let the coach decide as long as its not Mike Dantoni I really think he is being used incorrectly for his skill set.

Anyone notice his knee is wrapped up again?  Or am I mis-seeing it?
