    Not overreacting, just reality.

    We need to have Kobe sit out for a few games to not only rest up, but showcase MWP.

    MWP was ballin' with Kobe out, and if we can showcase him during that stretch, his value will increase and we might be able to get good trade value out of him. I'm not sure who, but it's clear he doesn't fit in our system.

    He performed pretty well last night, aside from having a bad shooting night. I just don't think he'll ever be a good spot up shooter like we want/need him to be. He defends well, but other players defend just as well who can be spot up shooters.

    MWP just doesn't look comfortable out there unless he has the okay to do it his own way. He can clearly still ball, he just doesn't fit with our current composition of players.

    Again, I'm not overreacting, it's just something I've been thinking for a while. I was going to post something like this earlier, but reports on how much MWP has been working on spotting up and his in shape he is quieted me.

    I just do not think he will ever be what we need him to be for our team.

    Everyone, aside from Pau and kinda Kobe, looks incredibly uncomfortable out there. Nash looks completely lost...

    MWP played very well at the end of last year and looked great at the beginning of this years pre season. I think he will be alright for us.

    But right now, we need to figure out this offense. Last night was painful to watch at times. The spacing is all out of whack, each persons responsibilities are unknown and there does not seem to be any continuity at all.

    IMO, artest is the least of our worries right now. We have a much bigger issue and that is the offense (and defense) look lost.

    I highlighted coaching issues. This cannot be fixed if brown doesn't wake up and smell the coffee.

    I'm wondering what new offense we will run next year? Jeez. Can we freakin' get back to Laker Basketball and run a traditional offense, and just play. We have one of the top two or three most talented teams out there, and Brownie and his band of coaches has them completely lost. Damn...make it like a pick-up game and we win most nights! Go back to Laker Roots....or change the offense again next year, and the year after that.

    Artest isn't a good target for Nash, Kobe, or Pau to pass to. He works best with the ball in his hands.

    I agree... it would be awesome if he was a solid 3pt shooter. However, when we play the Heat and Thunder he is going to be big. we have more than enough what we need for offense, these players just have to get used to where they are going to get their shots off in this offense.

    MWP hit his 3's (and shots) last night. I still don't think he's the right player for our system.

    He could be amazing in the next 10 games and I still won't eat my words. I would still want to use his increased trade value from playing well to trade his ***.

    He's not a great spot up shooter in the years he's been with us. He did hit his shots last night, which shows promise, but I am far from convinced.

    He is not a slasher in any sense of the word. We need one, someone aside from Kobe. Kobe so far, looks like he's been able to adjust his game to be better off the ball. MWP might be able to spot up (only time will tell), but he's not a slasher and won't make the right cuts when he needs to.
