    I gave him a ton of grief too, but the rim protection he gave us last night was needed badly. Nice Job Brook!

    Keeping his minutes limited like he's never experienced in his entire career (avg 30.5 as a rookie, 32.2 as a Net and is avg. 22 as a Laker). Maybe that allows us to offer the room exception of 4.7M this summer and he accepts.

    Meanwhile, starting Nance maybe highlights the guy...for you know...trades.

    Upside, inside out, we livin' la vida Lopez.

    If we use him right he has value, but he will only pick up 20+ points and 4+ rebounds if we play him huge minutes and that is counter-productive.

    So disappointing, but we knew who he was when we got him

    The Lakers, where NBA All Star big men suddenly suck and fade away

    ...had me shaking my head taking those treys last night even if he did hit a pair. Had a one on one with Gasol on the low block and barely missed a jump hook. Blocked Aldridge on a shot. Foul trouble limited him.

    I thought he protected the rim well but indeed his offense was frustating

    The classic back to the basket big is no longer in vogue... I still would like to see Lopez given opportunities to play in the post.

    agreed, but he does the same move constantly - A right hook shot turning over his left shoulder, that is he is doesn't get called for hooking his defender with his left arm like he often does.
