Metta fulfills the veteran role just fine.  Perfectly actually.

Yup.
Kobe on the other hand is caught between legend/icon and being a vet who helps the kids like MWP.

All Ive been asking is for Kobe to play controlled = last gm he played was his closet example of it & he made fewer foolish Kobe like plays and controlled the game vs solid young team. All Kobe has to do is play smart & let game come to him just like MWP has been doing.

No, he was never meant to get minutes, just mentor our young guys and learn to be an assistant coach.   Byron playing him was just his ignorance showing.

Nah was to insure draft status. He could be a good coach but limited in his experiences as a forward. Has a foot in the old school could be a liability
