hmmm indeed. their bench is pathetic so there's not much competition for him, and they just got the most offensive minded coach in the league. i'm sure d'antoni would prefer a better shooter at the 3, but I don't see it currently on their roster. hard to see him keeping this up, but with d'antoni who knows. i'm in a points league, but he's been a real waiver stud for roto guys thus far. here's hoping for more of the same

His %'s didn't really change. He's just taking more shots at about 12 FGA's a game in the last 7 games with 7.5 three attempts a game.

Mettas a pretty good pick up if he's available in your league right now. What do you guys think his stats will be for the rest of the season? Will it stay likethis?

He looks 30 lbs lighter.  Looks like he has renewed confidence.  I recall this guy being a 2nd to 3rd round draft pick in fantasy.  Love the potential in a run and gun scenario.

He's playing a lot better this year.  and with D'antoni's offense, I think he'll flourish.
He's great with 3's and Steals!

d'antoni just said he expects ron to take 10 3s a game and wants him to make 4.  40%  he also said he expects him to score 17-20 points per a game.  i'll be happy with 2 3s and 14 :)

Not because MWP is ranked #56 on the season, #26 in the last two weeks, and #5 in the last week with his minutes about to go even higher under Mike "What's a Rotation" D'Antoni?

cannot believe he's turnining into a hot pickup now.
good for him

If he really is having 10 3FGA a game, he will either help much for your team, or kill your teams FG.

fun to own now, though.

He went unnoticed in one of my 10 team leagues. Shoot, I didnt even know he was available myself and I am a Lakers fan. Grabbed him a few minutes into the game (after he scored and stole a ball).

Could be one of the top pick ups of the season.

really? I find him crap in real life, but decent for fantasy if you're punting TO's and FG%

I'll admit I've only watched about a few games worth of him though

D'Antoni's exact quote:

“He should be wide open every time. He was 4 for 9 on 3s. He’ll get 10 a game and I told him he needs to make 4 of 10 every game. And he can do that. That’s 40 percent and that’s pretty good so he’ll do that. I think he’ll do that every game. He’s going to be up there (averaging) 17-20 points.”

If you look at D'Antoni's teams in the past, he always has sharpshooters in his setup.  Or he always encourages 3pt shots from the wingmen.  Joe Johnson, Marion, Raja Bell, James Jones, Wilson Chandler, Toney Douglas, Landry Fields, Gallinari to name a few.  Looking at the current Lakers setup, it looks like Artest will be that man bombing 3s on the wings.  So we better get used to it.  3pts and defensive stats?  Why the hell wouldnt anyone want that on their fantasy team?
