Jodie Meeks is the most recent player to feel the cold, isolated part of the Lakers' bench. Meeks was benched a second consecutive game by CoachMike D'Antoni, failing to enter the Lakers' 108-103 loss Sunday to the Toronto Raptors.
“It's frustrating, but there's really nothing I can do about it,” said Meeks, who is averaging 7.9 points and shooting only 37.8% in his first season with the Lakers. “My role is just to come in and make shots and play hard. Even if I'm not making shots, I still play hard every game. I feel that I bring a lot of energy to the team.”
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
