I was wrong about Metta.

I thought he was done. I saw his mini-resurgence at the end of last year, but wrote it off as Kobe being out. I heard about his injuries and lack of conditioning and thought it was being overblown.

I also remember debating this several times with e-monk. I think Jamel as well.

Well, they were right and I was wrong. Not only is he playing better than last year, but he is playing better than I ever remember him playing as a Laker.

Now hopefully this doesn't jinx him and he can continue his productive play.

I love Ron. Definitely one of my top three favorites on the team.

Re: I was wrong about Metta.

I just hope he can keep it up. He is in great shape and playing with a lot of confidence. His shots are falling and he is getting a lot of easy open looks so there is reason to believe it will continue.

I was very high on him going into this year and clearly said so on this forum, but don't really remember debating this with you.

Re: I was wrong about Metta.

He's playing very well and being aggressive. He came ready to play and when Nash gets back it will only get better.
