    It's not rocket science.

    It annoys me how Kobe never gets any blame when the Lakers lose, yet all the credit when they win. You have the best C in the league down low, and an elite PF who is over seven foot tall. That's alot of high percentage looks.

    Kobe has no business taking 30 plus shots on a team with that kind of post presence. Ridiculous. Just ridiculous.

    The Lakers are better off following the Grizz' blueprint. Use your bigs to generate high percentage looks, and when the D collapses punish them with perimeter shooting and drives. The lakers have the personel to pull it off.

    It's true the D'Antoni system doesn't translate well to these players. They need a tweener at the four to make it work.

    Stan Van Gundy's system is perfect for this team, but I doubt he and Dwight would want to bury the hatchet.
    I think you also saw it with Memphis when Rudy Gay was out. Gasol/Randolph were the primary guys and they were 1 win away from the WCF. They're finally starting to gel with him back now, but you can see when you have 2 big guys as the primary weapons, there is a lot of damage that can be done.

    I wonder when Dwight starts asking for the ball more how things will turn out. Kobe can do no wrong in his eyes. This was a problem for them last year too at times.

    The Lakers need time to gel. It's way too early to count them out. Especially since the most important piece of their offence is out indefinitely with an injury.

    They can't win with D'Antoni. No one can.

    On top of it, a team with so much size and skill in the post is ill-suited for D'Antoni's small ball system.

    Bingo.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    Now that you elaborated eloquently on your previous post and now I understand the point you're trying to make, yes, I will have to agree with your notion. Thanks dude.

    Agreed. We cant say what Lakers will or will not do when 2 of their starters are out win injuries and have only played 1 regular season game together.

    Phoenix won 62 games one year. They clearly can win and should be winning. Obviously the coach can and likely is playing a role in the problem but its been 2 coaches now having difficulty. They don't play hard and don't fight consistently plus they have some personnel issues right now.

    Kobe-Dwight-Nash-Pau-Artest-Jamison will win 50 games on pure hoops talent alone.

    PHO had a terrific bench and their stars were in their prime. Lakers have no bench and.only Dwight is in his prime and he has significant offensive short comings.

    Yea, it's not something he'll be able to take advantage of. I don't see how making them the run and gun type of team uses the talent/personnel they have now.
