Defense Sucks!!: Personnel or System?

To put it simply, we're bringing in personnel to fit into D'Antoni's system. Not saying we should fire him right now, since it won't salvage anything.

BUT, in the off-season, if we can get rid of D'Antoni, we can actually start bringing in players that can play defense, or at least teach it to some of our youngsters. Start grooming now, give it 5 years, and hopefully we'll be in contention again.

Regardless, barring a miracle signing or two, it's gonna be a long journey, folks. :freak2:

Accountability. If you get pulled from the game for missing a defensive assignment, you hustle back next time and defend. MDA only pulls guys for missing shots.

Our defensive strategy is to make more shots…… no kidding….. that's it.

The Lakers failed to sell out for the fifth time, drawing 18,112 - 885 short of capacity....The Lakers have held opponents under 100 just 18 times. The only team that has done it fewer times is Philadelphia (nine).

It's really impressive... in a bad way, of course. I wonder if MDA and Rambo even mention defense at all.

They watch film all the time. It's just that it's only on how we can further improve our offense and not defense. :man10:
