Lakers have alot of weapons. Kobe should easily put up Lebron type numbers this year. Or will he?

The Best Around
08-10-2012, 04:45 PM
Good pickup for them, but makes no sense for him. At that age, he is better off signing with a bad team so he gets more playing time, and then gets a richer contract later on. How many minutes will he play? Like 10?

I liked Meeks while he was with the Sixers. Not a good all around player, but still gives you maximum effort and hustle, and his shot is a thing of beauty when it is falling. Although, he's pretty worthless when it isn't

And lol at people thinking this tips the Lakers over the edge

The Lakers are solving all of the problems that plagued them last season.

Now we have Nash, Meeks, and Jamison who can spread the floor, and maybe even Blake or Duhon (career 39 and 36% shooters) can find their shots as well. Hell Kobe's 3% should shoot up to, at least to around his career percentage.

Not to mention MWP is going to be open every single play in that corner :laugh2: So who knows enough open shots he may hit 40%.

On top of that the bench has some athleticism to it to counter the oldness of the starting 5.

Personally, I'd start Meeks over Artest. He's just a much better fit in the offense. I'm tired of Artest bricking wide open threes, which is going to happen every game again this year. Plus, having Artest and Jamison off the bench would be nice.

That is, for all games not against the Heat, Knicks, and Thunder. We need Artest starting for those.

Artest is like the 5th or 6th best player on the team. He isn't a stopper, but still a good defender. He is on a really good team, not on a team where the 2nd best player is Amare and a team that signed a fat PG because Mitch grabbed the one they wanted.

And you vs Melo in the playoffs? Theres a guy named Kevin Durant he has to worry about. Anyway metta is trash and was never the 2nd best player last year at all. Please, he can't guard the top SF in the game. Fans getting mad because I said that LA isnt the favorite wow..

Huh? I meant regular season. Don't be silly, it would be impossible for Melo to match up against Metta in the playoffs. Considering the Knicks aren't even the best team in their state.

Thats the thing, it doesn't matter what you think. Im sure you were coming up with ways how the Knicks were going to upset Miami last year. Worry about the mess of a franchise you root for, where they give up young players that are good and 1st round picks for Melo, and give Amare max because Lebron wasn't coming.

Lebron wade bosh and Durant Westy,Harden,Ibaka have something to say about that. Why do LA fans get so mad, Miami is the favorite until somebody dethrons them.

Find me a LAL fan that's mad. This offseason the Lakers went from competitive pretenders to legitimate contenders. We are ecstatic actually whereas Knicks went from feeble pretenders to 2nd best team in their own state. Who wins?

Not a bad team..

Yup, its crazy what that franchise was able to do. Not to mention, they have a very solid bench finally now too with Meeks, Duhon, Blake, Hill and Jameson.

Ask vegas lmao. They hadthe Knicks with 12 or18-1 odds. I said LA is a top 3 team but not the favorites

Based on the odds, they are top 2 and slight dog to Miami, but top 3 is good for me. I would be happy if the Lakers won another one, but I love the fact that the franchise is always going all in to get that next on and don't sit aroung changing out GM's and players and end up like the Knicks.

I didn't say Kobe would put up Lebron numbers. I said he should. We all know that as soon as this experiment hits a bump in the road we might see Kobe chucking shots as always. With this lineup those numbers minus the FG% should be very much attainable for the heir apparent. Not saying he will, but he should with the attention he demands on offense.

How are laker fans so sure that youll take down miami? Sure your team got a whole lot better but it still remains to be seen how effective your team will be as a unit. Kobe loves to fire at a high clip. Now theres only so many shots available for pau dwight and mr bryant. Will kobe allow nash to facilitate the offense? Remains to be seen. On the contrary Miami are the champions who did not lose any valuable pieces and have made huge gains by addressing there biggest weakness, there 3 point shooting. As of now the Heat are still favorites, Case and point.

Good pickup for them, but makes no sense for him. At that age, he is better off signing with a bad team so he gets more playing time, and then gets a richer contract later on. How many minutes will he play? Like 10?

How do Laker fans feel about SF position? MWP is not the player he once was and Ebanks well no explanation is needed.

i feel good. mwp can still play solid Defense and he has a good 3 ball. a team that has nash, kobe, artest, jamison, and meeks is a pretty good 3 point shooting team. Also i have a feeling lakers will add one more player.

Artest started last year with a pinched nerve in hi back and got better after the break and getting treatment. He looks good now and has been said to be at the practice facility in El Segundo every morning since they got eliminated:

Metta will be fine since he's in shape. Getting in shape during the season was the problem, and you could tell as the season went on he was improving.
