Lakers guard Shannon Brown determined to find an opportunity

53291378The Lakers were running the fast break Sunday against the Utah Jazz, and it appeared two scenarios could play out. Shannon Brown could cap the play with another highlight-reel dunk. Or it could end with an ill-advised shot, poor pass or costly turnover. But neither happened.

Brown pulled up on the right block, looked for Lamar Odom in the near corner and found no defender on him. Instead of forcing a pass to Odom or driving through a lane of traffic, Brown took advantage of the open space, settled for a jumper on the right block, and the ball crisply went into the hoop.

After Monday's practice, Brown was recounting that play in the Lakers' 99-94 preseason loss Sunday to the Jazz. He said it's possible, given the same situation, he would have made the same decisions last season. But plays like this one have been happening more often this preseason for Brown.

Four Lakers have averaged double figures this preseason. Since Lamar Odom has assumed a starter's role while Andrew Bynum rehabilitates from a surgically repaired right knee, Brown's 10.8-points-per-game average on 46.5% shooting in 22.4 minutes mark the highest output from a reserve.

Brown has shown promise this preseason in overcoming inconsistent shooting, handling and defense, but how much will that matter when Oct. 26 rolls around and the Lakers host Houston in their season opener?

"I don't see any bench player besides Lamar playing more than 20 minutes per game," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said. "It's too hard to take those kind of minutes from the starters."

Jackson later backtracked and said it was conceivable Lakers backup guard Steve Blake would surpass 20 minutes in light of Jackson's plan to hold starting guard Derek Fisher to under 30 minutes per game, Blake's passing skills as a point guard and his already strong grasp of the triangle offense. Still, Jackson's message looks pretty clear. Yet, Brown appears genuinely upbeat about the 2010-11 season, and it's not just because he and R&B singer Monica recently got engaged. ("I'm happy," he said. "She's a great girl. Everything is great.")

That's because he has a pragmatic view on how to mark his niche.  "Just take advantage of any opportunity I'm given," said Brown, who signed a two-year, $4.6-million deal after averaging last season a career-high 8.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 20.7 minutes per game and earning a trip to the NBA All-Star dunk contest. "Just go out there and work hard and continue to get better every day. That's about it. There really isn't any much more to it."

Brown surely will face plenty of challenges. He and Sasha Vujacic are currently competing to serve as Kobe Bryant's backup at shooting guard, and Jackson says he hasn't reached a definitive conclusion on whom he would put at the position. Jackson cited a few instances this preseason when Brown still remained loss on defense. And Jackson's recent revelation that rookie Devin Ebanks will partly play at shooting guard may not necessarily threaten Brown's standing in the rotation, but it could eat away some of his playing time.

Nonetheless, there are plenty of indicators that Brown will continue improving each NBA season. Bryant's surely making progress on his knee, but it remains uncertain what limitations he may have at least, at the beginning of the season. That could bump Shannon with more time considering he averaged 14.6 points in 37.7 minutes per contest during Bryant's five-game absence last season because of a sprained left ankle, a stretch Jackson said was "great for his confidence and great for his experience."

Brown told reporters after he re-signed with the Lakers this offseason that he mostly spent the summer working on his "skill work" and healing his sprained right thumb.

And when I asked Jackson what roles he envisioned both for Vujacic and Brown, Jackson perhaps tipped his hand with the amount of time he spent outlining each of their roles. He spent 20 seconds examining Vujacic's role in hitting late-game three-pointers and playing pesky defense; he spoke for a minute and six seconds on Brown's experiences replacing Bryant last season for five games, his ongoing defensive progression and his uber athleticism.

"It's not how many minutes you play, it's the quality with the minutes you're given out there on the floor," Jackson said. "That's something he can do. He can make a real impact on the game, and that's important."

Brown believes that can happen. He said this year's training camp was "the best one I've done so far" in his four-year career, including the last 1 1/2 seasons with the Lakers. He said he had greater "basketball knowledge," because of better decision-making, overall maturity and improved understanding of the triangle. He sees the latter as something he could help the rest of the unit with, including new arrivals Blake, Ebanks, Matt Barnes, Theo Ratliff and Derrick Caracter. In his quote below, he gives advice to the newcomers on how to grasp the triangle, but it also could apply to how Brown wants to approach his role this season, regardless of the ups and downs that may come his way.

"You got to be patient with it," he said. "But at the same time, you got to work at it."

Magic Phil - good one! Nice groovin' groove goin' on.

For the more cerebral (and Irish) music lovers this morning:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxiEMpcI83E

As for Brown: love his attitude, his hops and his new-and-improved jumper. I still wish he'd pass quicker, with better angles and didn't dribble so much. I think he and Steve Blaker will work well together.

Our dear Shannon Brown.

Our Laker with the Irish white chick's name.

I remember that play he's referring to - the decision to read the defense and then pull up for that sweet little J. And I remember thinking - wow - I think he's finally doing what he's supposed to be doing! I think this is a harbinger of good things to come - better decision making is KEY in this offense, and I believe Shannon is starting to get it. Finally.


And kudos to George Karl. Is he the only guy that speaks highly of the Lakers from the heart? He speaks truth - forget about getting all PC. Thanks George. Glad to see you on the bench - stay well. And much success to you - except against us of course!

63.. Loved those shows too..
Interesting also to witness Elvis' robust ego struggling to let the others shine..

ROLLLLLLL CALLLLLLLL!


Game day, baby, and so begins a day of (hopefully) progress. What do we want to see? Decisive play, good shots and some solid bench play. We need to avenge our loss from Sunday and we need to start building some momentum for the regular season.


@Caliphilosopher - Nice to see you back and supporting Luke in your unique style.

@mamba24 - Someone's gotta say it, OUT FREAKING STANDING, SIR!!!!!! You're an inspiration to us all.

With his hard work Brown will get his playing time. Also I like the idea of Devin getting time at the two. I would love to see how his length matches up against Durant's length.

There is only one thing to say about your choice of verse...OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!!

The below quote from Shannon Brown is probably the best advice to learn triangle. I am anticipating to see vastly improved and smarter Shannon this season.

"You got to be patient with it, but at the same time, you got to work at it."


GAME DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!: http://tinyurl.com/3a3glme

Good Morning LAKER NATION!

(And good morning to you Mamba Luv. Thanks for the dedication.)

Here's my morning selection.

(substitute "my man" with "my team")

We're just one week from the beginning of greatness. LOVE IT.

Hey, regarding the team bus, can I be the keeper of the flame? (ya know, since Mamba's always taking about me casting away darkness and stuff)

Love,
Lass

OK, OK, THE LAST ONE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7YLWm_rbBQ - THE THINGS I'VE SEEN!

Does anyone have a working link or a website for viewing the game tonight??

GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Laker Lass,
Lass is that really you? Lass you can be anything you want to be. Why? Because you are Laker Lass who smile casts away the Darkness and brings Light into the world.

Not sure if the Lakers are ready, but the blog is definitely ready.
Let's roll...

The quest for #17 will begin one week from today!!!!

I am wondering if both Sasha and Walton to be included in 12 men active roster, which one will be there opening night, Caracter or Ebanks?? At this point Ebanks seems to be ahead of Caracter, but the Lakers need big man.

Kobe
Gasol
Odom
Artest
Fisher
Blake
Barnes
Brown
Ratliff
Walton
Sasha
Ebanks or Caracter??

Posting from the dentist chair.

Mamba24 pls bid down the bus.

justa - sorry. You are always special and we won't forget again,

Love everyones tunes today. Wonder if the doctor will scribe me some perforate...lol

Bid = Hold

I meant percocets. Tough doing this on the iPhone.

Roll call ... checking in!!!

Another scrimmage against the Jazz tonight. I'll watch it, but zzzzzz. LakerPeace, as long as Caracter is healthy, he will be on the roster until in Bynum returns. Otherwise, it will all depend on health with respect to suits up in street clothes and if everyone is healthy, Ebanks is probably the most likely candidate simply because he's a rookie.

No one has ever doubted Shannon's athleticism. He has the talent to become a very good player and he's in a system, with a coach, and with other players that will help him realize more of his potential. Most teams will allow a player like this to just run loose and go for it, and then when he messes up, they put him on the bench. Because he's on the Lakers, however, he has the role models to emulate and a coach that will emphasize proper play. It looks to me like Shannon Brown made the wise choice in signing on with the Lakers this season, and I think it will pay dividends for him and the team.

@LEWSTRS, Do what you gotta do bro, I got your back!

THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS

And so the Count down now begins, It is not about the number of Laker Wins
It’s not about how many points Kobe gets, It’s about turning the Rookies into vets
It’s about getting the team into harmony, so once more we can win a Title number 3.
For Phil this 3 business is getting old hat, this will be his 4th 3-peat, no one will beat that
For Kobe this will be his 6th championship Ring, Then MJ can’t say a Mother Freakin thing
For the Team this will be Title 17 you know, Boston your reign is over Long live The Lake Show
Don’t forget derrick Fisher he’ll have 6 rings too, Dfish is the Lakers foundation and also the Glue
The glue that keeps this Lakers team together, and able to withstand even the stormiest of weather
So break out your Laker gear Laker Nation, You’ll be wearing it to a June Coronation
For when this season is over and thru, No other teams fans will be able to say SPIT to you
For we are the Freakin LA Lakers Nation it’s true, winning # 17 is what we are prepared to do

Good evening and good afternoon and good whatever time zone are you Fam enjoying at the moment ;)

Pretty happy about my place on awesome Lewsters' bus (adorable), and in obligation to Larry for his amazing poem after my late post under his *see me bending as graciously as possible* amazing profile (and as grateful to phred, who cutely cheered me and my nickname preferences yesterday ;) ... *I love kittens, what can I do?* ;)), before the BIG game in Champions League starts, I came to enjoy all posts and threads, and now I can summon up a bit of milkshake of words, and offer it to you (no Kelis references there....).

Before I forget though, let me say to MM that his choice in fantabasketball league with Kevin D, in my eyes, is excellent.
Kevin D.'s gonna shine this year and he's gonna be the only obstacle to our predominance in the West (not telling he will stop us, but he surely's gonna make things uneasy... and I like that. I like when we get better and rolling through struggles... makes the whole process of winning so much more rewarding and... ethically mattering.)

Of course my Kobe's love (and Pau's love) would have let me pick those first but if one wants to strictly win bball league, we all know players like Durant give more advantage in terms of statistic AND overall pump in that kind of game (which is NOT accurate photograph of a REAL game btw...).

And if you wonder, no I can't participate in the league because I only care about the Lakers and I'm not really up to wish any other player luck ;).

About the past threads, yesterday I was done with internet then through Twitter (on the iPhone) it came the news about Magic.
Expected... but it made me sighing out.

I totally believe he has the right to search for NBA property glory and that won't ever change the fact he's a LAKER for life but you know... it felt a bit bitter in the heart anyway.
But it's just because I'm selfish, and I want he best only for me/us.

About Luke, I'm happy if he's back actively because he can be a good plus choice and has the respect of the team, so I assume they know better than anybody else if he's of a value or not and by their reactions it seems he is.

I trust my team.
First and foremost.
Blind faith?
No: confidence and positivity.

I will rejoice when Drew will be back effectively too, but to me it doesn't matter if it's November or December, as long as it is COMPLETELY and for real.

I see great things coming in Drew's season this year but for achieve them he gotta be FINE.

He will be.

I'm totally sure he will.

On the Shannon Brown thread (what is that? Do I have to post always under Shann0n's stuff??), I'm with everything PJ said.

It's amazing how that man speaks to the inner acknowledge of mine, so naturally.

Especially these days.

Shannon will be of a great help this year but he gotta focuse about being the best reserve he can be, reliably, and not just thinkin about increasing minutes: he gotta think about increasing his efficaciousness, mostly TACTICALLY, where he still weaker than he could be.

Don't know about you, but I'm training vocally for screaming as soon as next week comes.

I want so bad this season to start it's unreal ;)

A massive collective hug to the family.

LLL, Z. :)

The Flying Squirrel is finally getting it! I too noticed his improvement on Sunday nite. LAKESHOW!

I don't want to jinx you but, GOD!@#%^%^%sd RCOTD!!!!!!!! YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!

"63 - Footer - Ready to put some foot into some heat behind."

I don't know. That seems so narrow-visioned and unlike me, as it's giving way too much presence to the Heat. Perhaps: "Ready to put some foot into ANY team's behind" might be more accurate.

@Zaira, Oh I forgot to say it, but I got to say it...OUT FREAKIN STANDING GODDESS!!!

I was very happy when the Lakers re-signed Shannon Brown because of the component of athleticism and energy he brings to the team. He still has upside and is an underrated outside shooter, has a decent mid-range game and hits some clutch shots as the shot clock winds down. Of all things, I think he needs to work harder on his defense. When the Raja Bell thing "fell through" (assuming anything was even there), I felt that re-signing ShanWow was the next best thing, if not better because of his much needed youth and upside. Admittedly, I preferred Sasha out their ahead of Brown in the playoffs last season because of his playoff experience and greater familiarity with the Lakers' schemes at both ends of the floor. I know all of Sasha's faults, but just like Luke, I have a certain comfort level with him on the floor, so that is the only thing about re-signing Brown that bothered me (if you even want to call it that).

Go Lakers! #17 coming up STRONG!!

Without sounding like I am beating my own drum, I stated at the beginning of the season that Shannon was going to be one of the most improved players this year. He is playing under control and is finally playing within the system very nicely. With his athleticism and hops he could be big for us this year and he also seems to have his shooting touch in tune which is a big plus. Averaging double figure scoring throughout the preseason and having the highest scoring average for bench players is what I'm talking about. Way to go ShanWOW!!!!

Lew if you have no security officer for the bus ink me in, You know me and what I am capable of haha

just by the few games played and without a complete crew available, nevertheless, i can see ron-ron being the third laker to average 20 pts a game .stretching the defense will only bring good things to the lakers in general, and to shannon in particular,

Mamba24, please add me to the gameday bus...or train, as it were - "Right about now it's about that time for me to holler!"

Holy crap, what a load of worthless ignorant comments. Shoutouts in the comment section of an article, really?

Aren't you guys ashamed of looking like clowns? Regardless of how well the Laker organization is doing their job, don't you think they are embarassed by this monkey garbage posted under articles about them?

The comments here look like the myspace page of some underprivileged innercity middleschool dropout

GOD,It's nice to be a LakerHolic and be Hated. Wouldn't have it any other way!!

Yes, Yes Yes! I do believe this is RCOTD material!!

1. Lew, you can remove the ONCE AND FUTURE from my name. I took on that moniker after returned to the Blog after a few months in self-imposed exile. :)


2. Thanks Jefe101 for making an example outta that young pup Maxine who can't tell the difference between an article and a Blog post. Saved me a ton of time and energy. :)

@Max,

Apparently our ignorant, MySpace-like ramblings confound you. You are free to come and go as you please, but be assured that we shan't keep you against your will. If our community is not to your taste I'm sure you will find a virtual pied de terre more suitable to your needs elsewhere.

(Hey, me not stoopid.)

WOW!!!!!! YOU GO YOU LAKER LASS WOMAN!!!!

Shannon to have a great year, ala`Michigan State Basketball and now Football.
Go Shannon, lite it up!!

For Zaira and her Blind Faith: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUW1SGF7bR8

Ah I see there is an occasional troll here uttering his complete ignorance about the Lakers. Makes me feel right at home like the other site I was on last year huh Lew haha

Don't you all just love the internet where the children with limited intelligence prove to the world how ignorant they really are!!!

Awww snap! After that roll call, I feel a game day song comin' on!

Somebody SCREAM!!!!!

Song to the Double Dutch Bus music by Frankie Smith

Give me a HO if you're on the Lakers blog bus ...HO HO HO

There's a Lakers bus comin' down the street
Movin pretty fast
And swayin to the beat
Get on the bus and support your team
And tell the driver that you're
Goin' to a Lakers Blog Affair
Fe Fi Fo Fum
Well I'll be darn here we come
The Lakers Blog Bus is on the street
You'd better get on the bus
and support your team!

I know I'm late to the party, but on want on this bus:

Here's what will make Shannon good, then great: He's got to learn how to hit that outside shot consistently so that defenses will take him more seriously. Once he accomplishes that task, then he can utitlize his true strength which is playing above the rim. Draw some 1 on 1 D, then drive to the hoop where he belongs. There's no doubt what he can do once he's around the basket; it's that outside "stuff" that needs some work. His ball handling is suspect too but we don't have to rely on it too much being that he's a 2. I like "Brown." He knows he's not the greatest and doesn't pretend to be either. He's got a great attitude and it's for that reason alone, I would like to see him "soar" in this league. Hopefully, when his career takes "flight," it'll be as a Laker.

GO LAKERS!!

888 - I am not clean at all haha If it doesn't turn out I am man enough to eat my words.

MM

Is Sasha cleared to play tonight

Tony Sassi

I like shannon brown.. High leaper.. He needs more experience though..
