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.

And you actually think that. Like you honestly, truely believe that.

That is why I'm done posting on here. You're an idiot. So many of you are just delusional morons that it makes this place unpostable.

I came here to check in on fantasy league and made the mistake to look around again.

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