Doesn't say anything about him earning it in practice. He "just wanted to change the lineup/rotation today".



Like I said, Byron said it in the interview with Time Warner on Access Sportsnet.   You are asking me for a quote when I actually SAW him say it  :laughing:   I hope you understand how silly it is.  

Maybe if you watched Access Sportsnet more often instead of relying on the internet you wouldn't need it ;)

Byron even mentioned it last night.   Here

 

 

 

2:29   

Ding asks Byron if Kobe's absence made it easier to go to Jordan(Clarkson)

Byron: "Not really.  Because I really had planned on starting Jordan with Kobe. So it doesn't make it easier because that was going to be my gameplan in the first place."

it also doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out  -_-   unless talking to a wall.  

 



No of course he didn't earn it in practice, it was his 3 DNP's and two 6 point games that followed that earned him the starting position with Kobe.

I was asking you for a link to the video of him saying Clarkson earned it in practice. Haven't seen it yet.

 

Again, where does Byron say "I was going to start Jordan Clarkson because he earned it in practice over Jeremy Lin and Ronnie Price".

 

That is what you said, after all....

 


Scott revealed that Clarkson had been doing so well in practice (yes THAT practice) that he was planning to start him next to Kobe soon. 

Looks like Clarkson WAS earning it in practice and about to be named starter over Price, but of course that was impossible according to some    :bounce:

 
You've also failed to explain where Sacre earned it over Davis and Kelly earned it over Wesley. 
 
Your whole argument is that Clarkson started because he earned it in practice. You haven't provided evidence to that. All you've done is shown a video of him saying "I was planning on starting him next to Kobe anyways".

Also some information.

But to be fair, a whole lot of members were predicting big minutes for Clarkson in 2nd half of season.

 

And here we are


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (Nope, another season ending injury), 2. High Draft Pick (Randle...season ending injury game #1.*sigh*) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet, but Black looks nice), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of, Davis, nice upside!), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron coaching to tank and injure)

We also predicted that this would be about the time Randle earned the starting spot from Boozer. 

Which I predict may have been weeks ago. 

But as everything seems to happen for a reason, if Randle was able to play this year we likely wouldn't have Black.   Long as we can have BOTH of them next year.

yea he blocked a shot in practice...wow, thats a good reason to start...lol....are you guys serious? I like the kid but come on man!

 

This is about Lin leaving not about Clarkson being a good player....a starter. But hey they've been starting Price so why not.....they are both great players.....clearly the best guards on the team.....hell Clarkson has a better shooting percentage than GOD Kobe..

 

The Lakers are soooooooo screwed....

Yep. I'm still waiting for a link of Byron saying "Clarkson earned the starting spot in practice over Lin and Price".

 

I will more than happily admit I am wrong and apologize.

Majesty says things and when you challenge him for proof he becomes quite or he will write a long post about nothing.

It doesn't make any sense and I feel he hast to be called out on this. I may not know him in real life but I come here a lot, and when you lie about things your opinion holds zero weight in my eyes.

 

I've explicitly asked for this proof (politely I might add) this whole time. He then goes and posts a video which is a response to something else and has nothing to do with my question for proof. Posts a gif saying "BOOM" like he's got me (which I found to be rude and childish btw) and a video of Clarkson blocking Lin one time as if that is how he earned the spot.

 

I block my friend all the time because I am bigger than he is. My friend is WAY better at basketball than I am. 

 

Also, I want my proof to be dated from when Majesty claimed Byron said this. It can't be from any date after the claim was made by Majesty.

 

Again, I don't care if I'm wrong. Just show me that I am. It doesn't bother me to admit when I'm wrong about something....especially on a message board where I don't know people.....

It was Byron's idea to make Clarkson and Black stroll toy babies to game

 

Rookie hazing update: Tarik Black, Clarkson will push these babies around rest of season, as per Byron's insistence.
