you dont really think Kobe meant that the team was panicking 3 games into the season, do you?

Yes, I do. I take it literally and it means he recognizes that the team has serious chemistry issues on offense resulting in turnovers. They have lost 11 straight including preseason and that shouldn't happen after a full training camp and the talent they have.

Pass the ball to who? Nobody was particularly shooting the ball well. The Lakers needed some help on the offense, but no it's Kobe fault that the Lakers lost. The Lakers bench is full of scrubs and provide no offense when they are in. You need points to win the game and when it's no coming from one place, it has to come from some other place.

Lakers defense has also been terrible and they need to stop turning the ball over.

40 pts on 60% shooting is efficient, especially for Colby.

Kobe was pretty great offensively tonight. Howard was in foul trouble, and the rest of the perimeter played like trash... Blake, Ebanks, Jamison were horrid.

His offensive efficiency is pretty amazing so far. 61% with 31ppg so far this year.

Pau is getting trapped on the perimeter... I have no idea what's going on, even when Howard got into foul trouble and had to sit for long stretches, Pau was still floating around the perimeter. Brown has to get him on the post.

If we didn't have Kobe tonight, I swear we would've scored like 60 points lol. turnovers are an issue, but that only started when Nash went down in Portland. Blake is struggling just getting the ball across half. We need another ball handler badly.

I was worried about their dull bench. If Kobe has to give 40, the bench clearly isn't worth a damn. Maybe Jamison and Hill, but consistency is what matters. And Gasol has been pissing me off for 3 years now. Why isn't he playing like he did when they won titles? Zero passion, zero court awareness. Ugh... I don't even think LA could beat Denver this year if they met in the playoffs again. It's not just 3 games, either. The problem is they aren't making changes to improve.

and LA on paper is the best team in the nba theres really no point to overreacting
Im sorry you are So spoiled that 3 losses Drive u up a wall
Im sorry that your team has 4 HOFers and 2 other allstars and is 0-3
Im sorry you Expected this to be the best team of all time and waltz to a ring with no one fighting back
LOL like you lakers Fans are just funny im allmost rooting for this slump to continue becuase its about time the lakers knew what it felt like to lose
the fans of that Franchise just sound like a bunch of 15 year old girls who arint getting there way and when they are they are so arrogent its painfull
they lose 3 games and the sky is falling i dont understand it LOL

11-03-2012, 05:59 AM
You morons do realize that Pau playing bad has everything to do with the offensive strategy right???

What was the Lakers biggest strength during their last 2 titles?? They were monsters on the offensive board playing volley ball in the paint with two 7-footers.

Now that the offense has Pau at the high post playing as a facilitator and a spot up jump shooter it leaves Howard alone to rebound in the paint. The best thing about the triangle/triple-post offense was that it put Pau (who is best suited with his back to the basket deep on the block) in the paint and that gave us two big men in the paint.

I want the triangle back and if it means bringing back Shaw to do it I'm all for it. It's obvious we aren't using Nash in the pick and roll and we don't have the personel to do it correctly anyway. Nash's pick and roll schemes involves a spread out offense and with two 7-footers that isn't going to happen.

If the Lakers are going to clog the paint and be unable to use Nash effectively at least do it right. The Princeton offense takes to much motion to get guys open. The triangle allowed guys to cut to basket at every angle and not come off back screens which take so much time to develop.

The only good sign tonight was Kobe still has the ability to just scrap that garbage offense and get the Lakers going when he needs to. I pray Mike Brown and his staff gets fired ASAP.

besides Kobe played like chumps tonight,D12 was in early foul trouble and our bench couldn't beat a D-

has something up his sleeve to improve our backcourt bench wise...i can see Jose Calderon in our future

Kobe isn't the problem, but once Nash and Dwight are healthy, they'd be foolish to not install the pick n roll as their primary offense. Last season Nash was the most efficient PG in the NBA in the pick n roll and Dwight was the best big in the pick n roll. So far this year they are running the pick n roll only 6% of the time.

The team D on this squad will continue to suck; virtually everyone on the team is a middling to weak defender outside of Howard. Side note: I actually think Jamison might be the worst defender in the NBA. They're also very old, and have overlapping offensive roles and an absolutely ridiculous coach to manage a team this challenging (it would take a legend of Phil Jackson's status to manage this roster appropriately).

They will win a lot of games against the .500's of the league, but I doubt the Lakers scare any contenders. Replace Kobe with a James Harden or even an Aaron Afflalo? Now the rest of the Western Conference has problems.

The Heat started out bad during their first year together, I think it took roughly 15-20 games for them to figure things out and they haven't looked back since.

Bringing in Nash AND Howard is a ton of star power that'll take some time for things to work out, especially Nash working off the ball more in a completely different offense for him, but everyone on the starting 5 has an incredibly high basketball IQ and should figure things out very soon.

Heat have highly effective defenders in their prime. They're also all very unselfish players. Those two factors alone separate the two squads greatly in my mind.

Incredibly high basketball IQ for Dwight doesn't seem far fetched to me. You don't accrue as many DPOY awards without having many elite facets to your game. He has managed to become a guy who can average over 23 ppg for such a rudimentary set of offensive skills. Also the best rebounder in the game, so yes when you combine all of those aspects to his game he has to have a high basketball IQ buddy.

And Nash obviously has one of the highest BBALL IQ's of probably all time. My point was more directed in that they have 2 new star acquisitions that have to play in a completely different system than they're accustomed to playing in. It'll take time, but they will figure it out.

This is about the Lakers TEAM and the coaching and the Princeton offense, but yet, you made it exclusively about Kobe and comparing him to players. Not long before this turns into a Kobe vs LeBron or Kobe vs Wade or Kobe vs MJ thread.

The best ball in the league? You think Kobe has the best game in the NBA?

It's definitely amazing that he is still a top 10 talent, I'd have zero argument there. On an ancillary note, I wonder how much steroid use NBA players use on a day to day basis to heal from their injuries quicker. Thinking mostly of things like the cream and EPO. EPO is so prominent in virtually all pro sports that it would be surprising if Kobe and others aren't using. Would not blame them.

He will be top 5 in MVP votes, top 3 In scoring and another fmvp(probably)
Eh... I wouldn't doubt it (MVP voters are terrible) but I think its pretty obvious he won't be a Top 5 player this year in terms of actual ability or on-court impact.

Top 10 is possible though.

Keep talking, some day you'll say something intelligent.

It's only 3 games in and your saying Crawford is better then Kobe :facepalm:

Educate your self son, Kobe will not average 5 to at the end of the season. He will be top 5 in MVP votes, top 3 In scoring and another fmvp(probably)

And you just told a poster it's 3 games into the season but yet you say that Kobe "will be top 5 in MVP votes, top 3 in scoring..." :facepalm:

The Lakers are a joke...this team has so many problems from a personnel standpoint that chemistry and the princeton offense is the last thing they should be worried about...Nash is ancient and is just pathetic defensively to the point where every night the Lakers could be outmatched at that position...Kobe is essentially a high volume shooter who can't play defense...Artest is worthless on both ends...Pau is good, but still struggles defensively.....Howard has always been an inconsistent offensive player, always has troubles with fouls (which will be worse since the Lakers have no one to keep penetrators out of the lane), and can't hit freethrows...the trend in their starting lineup is that their D is horrible (particulary on the perimeter), so how in the world is "playing time together" gonna all of a sudden make them get younger??? lol....Their bench is one of the worst in the league and with an old starting lineup that doesn't mix well....They won't run the ball because A.)Teams want to run against them (that usually means they don't fear you running) B.) They can't make enough defensive stops to start a fastbreak C.) They don't have the team to run...Nash had guys like Barbosa, Marion, Johnson, Q Rich, etc to run with on the break, what wing spot up shooters do the Lakers have??? D.) Does Nash really even want to run that much at 39???....None of these issues have to do with chemistry, it's just the simple fact that they aren't all that good...they remind me of the Redskins when they signed Bruce Smith and Prime late in their careers.....trying to build a team off a legacies is not wise...they will make it to the 2nd round at best and may even get bounced in the 1st round depending who they matchup with.........this team needs MAJOR changes....book it.

Not sure... hard to make a list so early.

Lebron
CP3
Durant
Harden
Crawford
Kyle Lowry
Tim Duncan

Dwight / Kobe / Wade etc...

The team D on this squad will continue to suck; virtually everyone on the team is a middling to weak defender outside of Howard. Side note: I actually think Jamison might be the worst defender in the NBA. They're also very old, and have overlapping offensive roles and an absolutely ridiculous coach to manage a team this challenging (it would take a legend of Phil Jackson's status to manage this roster appropriately).

They will win a lot of games against the .500's of the league, but I doubt the Lakers scare any contenders. Replace Kobe with a James Harden or even an Aaron Afflalo? Now the rest of the Western Conference has problems.

Replace Kobe...with Aaron Afflalo...and the Lakers would be better off?

What in the ****?

Bring in Phil Jackson YET again

You don't even have to bring in Phil. Any league average coach would work here.

Someone like Sloan (not saying he's average) or D'antoni would do wonders for this team.

Well, if you actually watched the video and heard the entire quote, it's nothing for Kobe haters to grasp onto.

He said, "That's what we're supposed to do. We can't just sit back and wait for things to change; we have to get after it."

There's a difference between telling people to shut up about acting like a few games will decide what happens in June and panicking as a player by working endlessly to get things right.

God the NBA is so annoying. No sport over analyses every single word a player says like this league. No sport gets so consumed in flash and gossip like the NBA. I guess a league full of players who act like teenagers will attract people who are into that stuff.

I for one like my team and that's about it.

A few objective observations from a Clipper fan. Not having Nash really hurt, Blake made some 3's but he can't be on the floor for major minutes against CP3...or Bledsoe. Like every is saying Mike Brown and the Princeton offense have to go. D'Antoni could save their season, they look like the need something to change. I doesn't look like the team will gel in it's current form. Dwight Howard must not be close to 100% because he was really a non-factor. I think the bigger issue was the Clippers rolling 5 bigs against him really gave him problems. The main thing I will say is that they have a lot of no names and really bad players on their team. I'm not sure having 4 Superstars is enough to make up for the kind of depth they have.

just my 2cents, but in a way i think not having nash helped kobe to be himself and score more. obviously it hurts not having him as far as team building, but when they are out there together they both look lost at this point in the process. and lets face it, nash can't do much better against cp3 or bledsoe then blake on the defensive end, in fact he probably does worse. you're right though, howard didn't look himself and the depth is very suspect.

I somewhat agree with you about Nash and Kobe, but Blake was outclassed so I thought it was appropriate to point out that Nash didn't play before anything else.

going by your logic.

Jamal Crawford - 74.7 %TS, 2.9%TO, .443 WS48
Lebron James - 66.5%TS, 12%TO, .260 WS48

Crawford > Lebron.
