Next year he will avg. at least 13-14 ppg and 6-7 rpg and we will regret letting him go.

and also play no defense

 

i love antawn, and applaud him for pushing through injury to play and help our team... but when his shot wasn't falling, we were pretty much playing 5 on 4 on defense

 

great experiment that i'm glad we tried, but i've got no quarrels about him moving on.

Even though he sucked on D, he was still competent on offense, and he helped our team. 

 

I like getting veteran minimum guys who can contribute. Too bad our team is so [expletive]ed up.

I think if we sign andray Blatche he will provide the same amount if not more for the same price.

This is annoying. I hope Howard tells lakers management I wont be here if MDA is. That simple.

I remember Jamison saying something about his family, and that he wants to retire @ the end of this season ..

 

 

If not, i think Jamison's presence is important, he can contribute even if he's aging one more year.

 

 

I honestly dont think this issue is related to MA being the coach next year, its too early to make the decision in the end of the playoffs.

 

 

If jamison can talk about MA, it will help Dwight if he ever express his dislike of mike to the fo.

Antawn said at the beginning of the year he'd only be here for one year and that his ex wife said she could hold it down at home taking care of the children for one year only.

This was always a one year thing.

Mike D'antoni has nothing to do with Jamison not returning. 

Not everything revolves around that freaking guy.

It's a damn shame to see Jamison go. The limited role that he was given, he sure brought a lot to the table. I don't blame him for leaving because of sorry D'Antoni

He skipped the exit interview. That's the thing. Every player in the NBA knows exit interviews follow the day or two after elimination...especially a veteran like Jamison, who has had more of them than anyone on our team, minus Nash.

I'm sure it was a one-year plan. Doesn't mean he was going to skip his exit interview, and it never meant he was going to openly comment on adjustments not being made during games.

And yes, he didn't seem to give a [expletive] about MDA on that Max & Marcellus interview. It was kind of awkward.

Jamison came to a Lakers squad that had Eddie Jordan as an assistant coach, and it was Jordan who wanted Jamison to play in the Princeton offense.

When the smoke cleared, Jamison was doing the exact opposite of what he came here for: he wasn't competing for a ring, he wasn't playing in the Princeton offense, and he wasn't used consistently (in regards to what position he played and his role in the offense).

Jamison went quite some time without that surgery, and was playing professional basketball. I'm sure he wasn't rushed into getting it done a day after Game 4. He simply left, and did not want to talk to the media about this disappointing waste of an NBA season.

A lot of our lineup was developed around the Princeton unfortunately, and D'antoni runs the opposite of it.

I actually think a lot of off-season moves(such as not going after Webster, passing up on CDR etc) were all Princeton based moves because they were trying to build around that "system" which is why Jamison was here.

unfortunately none of that happened.

I actually feel bad for the guy, but he wasn’t exactly the only one who was a bit disappointed this season. Once again I put the majority of the blame on Mike D’Antoni – and Brown for that matter. I wouldn’t mind bringing him back next season either – that is, if he is willing to accept the vets minimum.

That's a bigger loss than most people on here think. Especially for how cheap we were getting his services. Definitely sad about this. Sorry it didn't work Antawn.

Really liked the guy & his quick shots. Hope we get someone young to replace the guy.

Sucks to see him go, but we need some young blood on the bench.
