Didn't quite understood the principle behind how the decision was made during the start of the second half against San Antonio to keep Brown as long as Coach Jackson did. Ronny Turiaf and Kobe just smoked the entire SAS team in the first half, but Jackson had to wait (as he would always love to put it) to have the players play through their mistakes and if not, lack of effort before putting the Turiaf back. If a player is playing well above the others, or playing wee (period) don't it make sense to reward him with more playing time at least until the team is in control of the tempo and score????????? Please explain this to a concern and devoted fan.

Didn't quite understand the principle behind how the decision was made by Coach Jackson, during the start of the second half against San Antonio, to keep Brown as long as he did. I felt that Ronny Turiaf and Kobe just smoked the entire SAS team with their passing and aggressiveness in the first half, but Jackson had to wait (as he would always love to put it) to have the players play through their mistakes and if not, on their lack of effort before putting Turiaf back. If a player is playing well above the others, or playing well (period), don't it make MORE sense to reward him with more playing time at least until the team is in control of the tempo and the game????????? Please explain this to a concern and devoted fan.

After back to back losses vs. San Antonio and Dallas do the Lakers still feel among the elite ??? I advise to bench that stiff Kwame Brown, Start Turiaff, bench semi-stiff Walton and play Farmar, going with a 3-guard, 2-foward offense, use speed and ball rotation for offense. Whoops sorry this requires ball-hog Bryant to actaully pass so it will not happen.
