    Coach, Jordan Hill’s Career Night: The coach confirmed my belief that Hill played best within the 2nd unit. However, Hill has managed to show that no matter if the 1st or 2nd unit he’ll still play within the system aside of pulling down them rebounds.

    • Daryl Peek

      I would say Hill fits better with the second unit defensively just as Meeks does. MDA is slick. He likes the second unit better because they fit his coaching style better. I think his words are a subtle message to Pau, trying to get him to run pick and roll more, in actually rolling to the post instead of picking and popping.

      • Jim213

        Not new, brought this up being that the coach would likely prefer to run with the second unit but has to play the bigs and many of the vets.

    • Lakers Fan

      Given that he likes Jordan Hill with the starting and second I unit, I think Kaman will see a huge reduction in minutes. Hill does thrive with that second unit, as well as the first. Its going to be interesting to see what will happen with Xavier Henry once Kobe comes back. Meeks has been balling out of his mind, so it will be interesting to see if D’Antoni will split the backup minutes between Meeks and Henry or just cut Henry out of the rotation all together.

    Solid all-around team effort last night. Say what you want about MDA, but I really think the players like playing for him and believe in him. It’ll be interesting to see how things go in El Segundo with the team basically practicing over the better part of this week, presumably with Kobe getting further into the mix, and not playing their next game until the Warriors come to Staples on Friday night and then with the Kings coming on Sunday night. This team win last night will really only be as good as their ability to back it up with two more wins at home in these next two…hopefully to get themselves back to .500 at 7-7 and heading into Thanksgiving week and a 3 game eastern road trip…and with Kobe getting closer and closer to his return to the lineup. My guess is that Kobe will make his return in their first game back from that road trip, against the Blazers on December 1st, at Staples and, once again, in their Sunday whites!

      As posted previously, IMO this was a big game to battle back to a 500 avg. Although, Hill commented about Kobe’s return it’d be best if he returned around mid Dec early January. Given he spends the off season on his strength and conditioning and from watching Kobe throughout the years I wouldn’t expect him to return to a mediocre style of play.

      He’ll likely return at 75% = 85% for Kobe. Which is better than close to the rest of the league but will need time to adjust on the court IMO.

    Pau Gasol is very important for the Lakers,screw it the Pau haters just wanna hate.The man Pau Gasol is averaging a damn double double and people still displeased with him and wanting to trade him SMH.Sure i agree he is not averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds but he does average 13 points and 10.7 rebounds,so please give him a chance he deserves to be complimented and respected he plays hard also he averaging a freaking double double.Trade Pau for picks is what i hear from fans well that would insure Robert Sacre seeing a load of minutes and he would average much less than 13 and 10.7,with Sacre he would average more like 5 and 5 at best.Pau is a double double player.Great role player not a star anymore by no means,nowadays he is just a ROLE PLAYER.

    Nick Young is great off the bench it’s amazing how his shooting % and scoring has went way up since coming off the bench as the sixth man,Bill and James Worthy showed a chart of Nick Young and his improvement since coming off the bench it was remarkable.Lakers won the game versus Detroit last night and Nick Young was a big part of the win.Nick Young is Sixth man of the year so far IMO.

    Wesley Johnson had a couple highlight dunks last night,Wesley needs to learn how to dunk and he will be awesome once he gets all his dunks perfected.Wesley has missed a few dunks this season,perhaps his hands are too small IDK,but from my personal experience making a slam dunk is all about timing.Especially when making a alley oop dunk,it’s all about the timing of the lob and then the finish.Wesley is a great defender.

    Jodie Meeks was red hot shooting and playing like he is Walter Davis.

    Xavier Henry is not a star in the making,he is just a role player at this time.I hope he figures out what is wrong and fixes it,because he has the potential to be at least a decent 10 PPG and 3 Rebounds guy every game.Xavier has lacked production lately.Once Kobe comes back Xavier Henry will lose his minutes unless he improves upon his play.

    Jordan Hill was compared to Dennis Rodman and A.C. Green by James Worthy during the Lakers telecast last night.High praise from the legendary James Worthy.Jordan Hill is a hardworker and he along with Jodie Meeks have the heart of a Lion.Hill is a starter.

    Both Lakers quarterbacks played good last night,Blake and Farmar did a good job.

    Go Lakers!

      It’s not just the double double that Gasol averages that makes him valuable to this team, it’s also that he remains one of the best passing big men this league HAS EVER SEEN! The dude is a career 3-4 assists/night man! SMH is right! It always amazes me how quick some people are to dismiss/disregard what we already have in search of something else.
