In the end we are going to be a team that lives by the jumper or dies by the jumper ........ we will get wins like last night but we are going to have some rough ones too me thinks because of it ......
Only time will tell but if we continue to out-hustle the more talented teams we will give them fits.....especially if they take us lightly.....
I think one thing that is benefiting them so far is the fact there IS no one guy out there to shutdown....you really have no clue who might go off on you when facing them...... Doc for instance is good at taking your #1 option away as a coach....well who is this teams #1 option right now without Bryant on the floor? that complicates things for teams that want to trap and take out a scorer lol
LobCity lol ....MobCity lol..... whatever.....more like OURCity as in Lakers ahahahhahahahha
This teams depth has greatly voided any drop in "talent" that was.
A center who is incapable of creating his own shot and hitting free throws.
An aging defender who gets lost in his own land.
After that, Jamison? A perennial streaky journeyman who made the all-star team some ages ago.
meh..... Our talent last year had no chance anyway...... that was neutralized the second MDA was hired lol.... Buss had more to do with neutralizing our talent than the implosions itself IMO.
Ya we are deeper....... but if depth is the crutch then in the end the story will be the same IMO....especially with a coach that wants to live and die by the perimeter ...... the team is better suited to play MDA ball so it will look better out there........... unfortunately however MDA ball is not how you win the NBA which will go on to neutralize some of this depth advantage......
Like I said we'll get wins like the Clips games.........we'll also shoot ourselves to some Ls in the very same fashion lol.............
I'm really trying to get behind MDA because he IS our coach and I have zero say about it.....but it's hard for me because I completely disagree with his philosophy ...... but I hope full well he proves me wrong even though I'm sure he won't lol.
