Do you guys think it's sad that we had a Wes Johnson ,earl clark, Henry. And now young talent but mwp is still the only guy getting into offensive players? Besides Kobe or mwp we give way too much space and freedom to opposition. In practice I see nick young all in people but in game I don't, he play d but not agressive. we have hibbert now sowhy aren't we attacking the dribble?

I also feel when should have kept mwp in the game , he was hot and the team does respond to him. I'm shocked at how good of a leader he is . I saw it in Houston , never thought he would be a leader on lamer team.

He can do that 5-10 min a game and that's about it.  He is as beat up as Kobe.

 

no point to let him play, he works better on the bench giving player advice.

If Byron is smart, then once MWP starts to slow down he'll put in Anthony Brown at the 3 and try him out. 

That is if he's still super inclined and convinced that Lou Williams is a point guard,...

MWP maybe slow and old but, he is valuable to these young bucks by the way he speaks to them on the court and gathers them together.
I'm not going to diss B.Scott anymore..... But I will give him the gas face....

Larry Nance... Check
MWP.... Check
Black... Check
Less Kelly...... Ohhhh hell yeaaaaa... Check

It's what Byron Scott does.

Gotta give Metta credit. He's been playing very well.

 

Not relying on it to continue but I hope it does.

I actually read a conspiracy theory today  (I think it was on Deadspin) that Byron is tanking these games on purpose to help Jeanie boot out Jim.

But what's in for him?  And do you really think Byron Scott is tanking anything on purpose???.  Seriously.

Even when his shot isn't falling, he brings defensive intensity to the team when he is on the court.

Per 20 minutes, MWP may be the best on our team. I'm surprised. It also make sense we are 1-7

Byron is losing naturally. It's his talent as a coach, see his Cleveland tenure for reference lol.

Looked like the MWP near the end of his previous stint with us tonight aka best shape ever days aka momentum killer. I guess sometimes for a guy that age and that many years in the league, one or a few solid nights can take a lot out of you.

I never thought I would take Metta seriously. I was thankful him the year we beat Boston but after I was all for shipping him. He missed way too many 3s. But this year is impressive so far. I think he is helping nacelles and Randle a lot. And he isn't that slow bros lol.
