Lakers’ Meeks Has Designs on Starting Role
Even though (Lakers coach Mike) D’Antoni has vowed to play an 11-man rotation next season, (Jodie) Meeks knows that it’s not realistic to think all six guards will get consistent playing time.
Thriving in Lakers training camp from Day 1 will do wonders for his survival.
“I think it’s more mental,” Meeks said. “Telling myself that it’s a really big opportunity for myself to show what I can do. Regardless of what the situation is, I’m going into this last month, month and a half of summer training thinking I’m going to be playing major minutes or possibly starting.”
