Until this bum Jamison starts playing atleast a lick of D for us, I don't want to hear it from him. He is what he is at this point in his career, a vet min player who is a streaky shooter and an awkward finisher around the basket.
Didn't Jamison wanna play for the Bobcats before he signed with us, because he wanted to be close to his family? Here's my thing, let's take advantage of that situation and trade him there for Gerald Henderson. I will never forget that dunk he pulled off the other day! Plus he could really fit well in D'Antonis system. Plays Defense, and definitely can score. He may even be able to start here, with Kobe now playing the 3.
We trade Jamison, Ebanks, and Clark to Bobcats for Gerald Henderson. Works financially.
New Rotation ...
Howard - Hill - Sacre
Gasol - World Peace
Kobe - Henderson
Meeks - Blake (Don't trade him, just move him to back 2 guard)
Nash - Morris - Duhon
We look good after this trade.
The root cause is that ESPN NBA trade machine program..... You have a few nitwits around here that play with that program like it's a video game
Hopefully some day ESPN can get their software writer to implement an "ARE YOU AN IDIOT" dialogue box that appears when outlandish trade proposals are inputted
^ LMAO screw ya'll. I hate PSD. I honestly thought they would do that trade. But whatever, guess we'll see. The overall point I'm making is we need to trade Jamison if we aren't gonna use him. And if we do trade him, then we need to get another scoring guard/forward off the bench. There was honestly no one else I could imagine us having a realistic chance of getting except Gerald Henderson.
It's Jamison's fault, he got the chance to show what he can do when he started but he had 3 straight bad games, he stopped playing hard on defense and stopped taking the ball off the dribble.
If he wants PT, he needs to come hard.

Im pretty sure Jamison had a 37 pt game for us and i remember him having some krazy nice blocks at the rim this year. The reason he isnt in the rotation is because D'Antoni goes with a 3 guard line-up. So all the SF playing time he could get is going to Morris because Kobe slides down to SF.
Gasol is a Center for D'Antoni's system. So have him come off the bench with Metta.
Jamison is bad on defense, ok, but he could really help with his shooting.
