He's been dealing with it for weeks.


So much for people saying Hill wasn't banged up ;)

I guess this is why MDA only puts him in games in spurts.

Yeah maybe after how he ran Kobe into the ground last Spring, we're all a little suspicious of his "talents" in that department.  And before you say "he can't control Kobe", maybe that in and of itself is an indication that he is the wrong coach for the Lakers.

Would the people who say MDA ran Kobe into the ground be saying the opposite if we didn't make the playoffs? Like would you guys be praising him. "Well we didn't make the playoffs, but at least he didn't play Kobe too many minutes.". Or is it just hindsight because he ended up tearing his Achilles?

 

 

Not saying Kobe's extra minutes did or didn't cause his Achilles tear. If I were to guess, I'd say it didn't help. I'm not a doctor so I wont pretend I know, nor have I really read into his injury enough to understand the true cause, but I do wonder if you guys would have [expletive]ed if we didn't make the playoffs. Would the reaction be "Why didn't he just put Kobe in!"?

KObe ran hiumself into the ground.

 

Just like he played through a horrible back injury in 2008 on Phil Jackson's watch.

 

 

He  could have played 25 minutes and D'Antoni could not have made him play a second more than he wanted to.

 

 

 

 

You guys are just bias, and borderline evil .

 

Sports is entertainment and all that, but first trying to act like you're more knowledgable than D'Antoni is laughable. 

 

 

Second, kobe does what he wants, that's why he is Kobe.

 

his stubborn will is what makes him great. GTFOH with the hate`

Good thing he's not gonna miss time! Hopefully this doesn't slow him down too much, he's been playing like a banshee!

The reason Hill isn't missing time is because *gasp* D'antoni has been smart with his minutes considering his injury.

here's another one

 

Jordan Hill first mentioned some soreness in his right knee during the preseason, and on Monday had an MRI exam on the area that revealed a bone bruise.

Such a bruise can be painful to deal with, but will not keep Hill off the court; the Lakers confirmed he will play in Tuesday evening’s game at Dallas.

Despite averaging only 14 minutes per game, Hill has been very useful off the bench, especially on the glass. In fact, Hill currently leads the NBA in offensive rebounding percentage (23.3 percent), while his teammate Pau Gasol is atop the NBA in defensive board percentage (38.3). Overall, they rank fourth and fifth in total rebound percentage (21.7 and 21.4).

Seems like we've known about his knee issues as far back as the start of pre-season.  That explains a lot 

So now with this new knowledge and people parading around gameday threads saying Hill wasn't banged up or dealing with injury and that D'antoni just 'hated' him coming to an end I'm glad this finally came out. 


I must say that considering the circumstances he's being played correctly, at least until his knee is 100%.

I remember when we first got Hill, me and a lot of Laker fans thought the guy who run like a SF, but if you really noticed him, he lumbers up and down the floor. Probably slower than kaman

Didn't know this
 

Hill is also hitting 73.3 percent of his shots, leading the NBA

 

So Jordan Hill's leading the NBA in offensive rebounding, and field goal percentage.


Not bad

A championship player. So is Kobe, so is Pau. So is Farmar and Nash and Blake.  I think Wesley has championship type stuff in him. I think Nick has the Swag and Kaman has the skill to play a role. meeks got the hustle.

 

 

 

Can we get the real 24 in Spring and can Nash just have a HOT streak, where his beautiful shot is butta, the whole second half of the season?

I think that's the plan, that's when our schedule is hardest.
