41 shots is a crime. And tp top it, he said after the game that the ball movement was great and that nobody played selfishly. How fucking bad is that??? 41 shots. 41
I'd never wish an injury on anyone but I'd be really curious to see how L.A. would do if Kobe missed about 20 games or so and had Meeks step into his spot.
Bet you they'd probably win at least 15 of those 20 and the ball movement would REALLY start happening.

Agreed. His biggest problem is being TOO unselfish. To his credit, since that NYK game he seems to be looking for his shot a little more. When Harden AND him are rolling it makes their team so much tougher.
I can't help but wonder what our team would have looked like right now if we had chosen to sign him. Hmmmm.....
