Watching the Lakers first game with Howard, they don't look like the offense can be fluid with how they're playing. I know it'll change but right now, Nash doesn't fit well. He just brings the ball up court an gives it to someone else and just sits back.
Everyone is also trying to setup allyoops for Howard. Just watching the first 5 min, LA is gonna miss Bynums diverse game. If motivated, he's a better overall player than Howard. This is also what Lakers fans said when Howard said he didn't wanna play for them mid last season. Now I'm sure the tune is different.
The biggest concern the Lakers should have is, Howard has yet to say he will resign. If he wants to opt out, fine. But if he isn't commiting already, that's a big concern.
